  • The Aliens Have Landed!

    After months of waiting for them to be fired, my little army of aliens are starting to come to life!

    Here they are:

    Dont be scared, they look quite friendly (but a little strange)!

    Now you just have to make them from sugar paste so I can eat them for real!

      They're brilliant, love them, hehehe! I hope you do make some more, encourage kids to garden. Perhaps put one together with a cheapish flower pot and a packet of seeds, as a little kit? But they're really great

        I would be in heaven making sugarpaste aliens! As long as I could eat the scraps lol! I think they would have to be pastel coloured though - I dread to think what E numbers are in food colouring!!!

        The kits are a really good idea Nettie! I actually made them for a charity I am connected with who have a stall at the local farmer's market, so that would be a good idea for them to put into practice! They sell plants, so the toppers could even be paired up with a runner bean plant or something!

            Hehehehe, glow in the dark ones would be cool! Very supernatural!

            They are made out of "proper clay" then fired and painted with acrylic paints rather than glazed, so I guess if you can get glow in the dark paints then you can have glow in the dark aliens! I might just have a look!

              Right. I am sure that Dulux do a glow in the dark paint for children's walls, it would be water based like emulsion, so if you can get a small tester of that (don't know if they do it in their mixing section) it would work the same as acrylic paints on clay!

                    These look fantastic!

                    Your picture looks really good too... cant wait to see the pic for 'glowing in the dark aliens' will you be making a flying saucer to match? Could hang it in the garden somewhere.
