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 don’t have my own studio, and don’t have a kiln at home, so I decided to get a mould ready to fire when the lockdown is lifted. It came to me whilst painting with my daughter, why not make a plaster version you decorate!? We had fun decorating our rainbow together, I did one myself too!
PAINT YOUR OWN RAINBOWS
I am now making them available to buy. A lot of small charities are struggling at this time. £2 from each ‘Rainbow’ box bought will go to the ’Children’s Hospice Southwest’ Charity.
Moon now available!
The cast glass versions will be available in the near future...in the meantime....
Handcrafted in clay...
Plaster of Paris is poured into a handmade silicone mould.
A perfect crafty distraction! Decorate however you choose. A mini palette is provided to get you started but poster paints, acrylics or watercolours are recommended for a bolder look.
Included is 1 rainbow and 2 mini clouds which have been hand poured into a handmade mould. A simple, fun, contemporary design, engaging for children and would look good on any shelf!
The box comes with a mini paint palette to get you started and extra brush, which holds more water for better colour coverage. You can use watercolour, acrylic or poster paints on the rainbows too!
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!!
