I created a cast glass sun, moon and cloud for my daughter Orla before she was born. My intention was to add a rainbow and I thought now would be as good a time as any to start the process; it would be a perfect little reminder for her and for me of this bizarre time! I didn’t have my own studio at the time or a kiln at home, so I decided to get a mould ready to fire when the lockdown was lifted. It came to me whilst painting with my daughter, why not make a plaster version you can decorate!? We had fun decorating our rainbow together and I realised this would make a great craft kit. The craft kits are a great way of supporting my business, so if you would like to browse the range of craft kits and small gifts click the shop now link upbove or at the bottom of the page!
£2 from each Rainbow craft kit goes to the Children's Hospice South West Charity. Details pf donations can be found on my instagram @jpinnellglass_products

Handcrafted in clay...
Plaster of Paris is poured into a handmade silicone mould.
A perfect crafty distraction! Decorate however you choose. .
Included: 1 rainbow and 2 mini clouds which are hand poured into a handmade mould. A simple, fun, contemporary design, engaging for children and would look good on any shelf!
The kit comes with x6 bright ready mix paint colours and a paintbrush. You can add glitter into the wet paint or score into the plaster to create surface pattern.
I have also included a little digital print of my Rainbow design. These can be put into a mini frame or even given to a friend with a little message written on the back. And finally a little sticker....who doesn’t love a sticker!!
Once your model is decorated, leave to dry and then display!
