Not to be eaten...

...chocolate it isn't.
From time to time I come across bits from past crafting. These were some ceramic bisque shapes that I found when I was looking for my pencils at the weekend.

I couldn't make up my mind whether to paint these in bright colours to resemble brightly wrapped eggs or to go with the bare chocolate and icing look - I think it's clear what I finally decided upon LOL
A couple of thin coats of brown acrylic paint, some white "icing" and pale green "sugar dots" and then the whole lot was covered in ceramic sealing spray.

When this was dry, the little heart shapes were painted with white Dona's paint and gently dry-brushed with either pink or lavender. The chalky effect of the Dona's paint makes the hearts look like little sugar hearts have been applied.

I think I might attach these to some 'lolly sticks' and use them to decorate some of my pot-plants during the Easter period................................
