Sweet mosaic mini hearts. Just plaster of paris of craft cerement in the ikea heart ice cube tray, and some broken plates, cups or mugs- goodness knows I need paperweights with my art... bigger ones though. At this point I still scramble and have to get real creative. :)
Renew Embossing Plate by Baking - by Chrissy. When your embossing plate looks like the one on the left, wrap it in a single layer of foil, place in an oven-proof flat dish, and place another dish (the heavier the better) on top. Preheat oven to 170C (about 325F) and bake for 30 minutes. Carefully remove it from the oven & unwrap, using hot pad mitts (It will be VERY hot!). Let cool. Wash the plate to remove any debris. Then it should look like the one on the right. I tried this, & it works!
#Kintsukuroi (n.) (v. phr.) – “to repair with #gold”; the art of repairing #pottery with gold or silver lacquer and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken.—Japanese | Appendix: Islam forbids the use of any pots, plates, or utensils made of gold or silver when eating. But such an art is acceptable as a form of art for display and such.
