Metallic macarons! So fun, right Let me tell you about the last 24 hours. The weather sucks for macarons; it's humid and the temperature has been fluctuating like crazy. I have made four, yes FOUR, separate batches of macaron batter. 3 of which failed. In total, that's one dozen eggs, 4 cups of almond meal, 8 cups of confectioners sugar, and a bunch of tablespoons of all the other bits and bobs. Macarons are a lot of work, and they are very temperamental. You need perfect weather, perfect timing, perfect ingredient temperature and perfect oven temperature. And the kicker; these in the picture are a failed batch. They're lumpy. I had to send the perfect, smooth, lovely ones with my fiance because he was running late to the open house that they were made for, so I didn't get a picture of the good ones 😭. So I would just like to take this moment to let you know that THIS is why they are the most expensive cookies at any bakery. One batch (24 sandwiches) takes at least 2 hours from start to finish, and you never get to sit down. They're worth it though; they are positively decadent. I need a nap now!! #macarons #metallic #ediblemetallicpaints #metallicpaint #metallicdessert #metallicmacarons #lumpy #crappyweather #humid #pinkmacarons #strawberry #strawberryfrosting
First up today was @ben.scott95_lowkulture wide arch Seat Leon.
Just a safe maintenance wash to safely remove dirt and grime and a lot of exhaust build up on the rear, to get it looking presentable again!
For a special family friend- made a quick mini replica of a beautiful piece by Indian artist Chandrakant Ekkirala. Fun fact ::: Lotus flowers represent personal progress and strength, rising above murky waters to blossom. #lotus #kamal #metallicpaint
Two years ago @beckkstar and I watch from this view as a guy (who had most likely snuck into Coachella) run like his life depended on it. Being chased by security, jumping and sliding like an action movie. He ran out of sight so we never knew what happened to him but I think he made it!! 😆⠀ Stay safe out there peeps! 🌴☀️ #coachella #coachellamemories
Preserving your cultural identity, Resiliency in face of adversity
A work in progress
I began this piece a while back & I haven't yet the opportunity to completely finish, but I decided to share anyways
This painting filled me with so much joy & I hope their smiles can encourage you today! ✨
We must protect, preserve our children at all cost
Despite the choatic, harsh background - you're immediately drawn to their warm hopefull, bright faces completely oblivious to what's surrounding them
How was your childhood
If you grew up to worn, torn communities -where you aware How did you cope
If you traveled, moved or migrated to a completely new community, how was your journey
Was your new place all you dreamed of, or was it filled w/ disappointments
How aware where you as a child Did you pick up things your parents tried to hide
Were you forced to move against your will
How were you able to preserve your cultural identity ... despite of being up-rooted from all you know
What safety nets did you have
The innocence of children is so precious ♥️ Our childhood upbringing has such an impact in shaping who we are
How have you, your family been able to preserve your identity in the midst of suppressive environment ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

🙋 Today I want to share with you this shaped box for paints. I made using the amazing materials by @expressionscraft
👉 Swipe to see tutorial 🖌 First, I glued a box from cardboard strips.
🖌 After, I primed with white gesso my box.
🖌 Then used stencil and applied texture paste on the box.
🖌 Then, I took chalk paints - Champagne Linen, Valentine tulip and Pink punch. I painted box unequally to give it a vintage look.
🖌 Then I took Snow pearl metallic paint to emphasize texture.
🖌 Then I picked up some decor and attached it to my box: chipboard and flowers from Expressions Craft.
Supplies Used: Immix Whiye Gesso, Immix Texture Paste, Immix Metallic Paint, Chipboard, Craft stencils, Handmade Flowers.
😘 Make beauty with smile! .
Небольшой фото мк по созданию ящика для красок. Листайте 👉
1. Нарезала полоски из кортона.
2. Склеила их, получился в ящик.
3. Покрыла все белым Гессо.
4. Через трафарет нанесла текстурную пасту.
5. Используя три цвета меловых красок, нанесла их специально не равномерно, придавая состаренный вид.
6. Выделила рельеф металлической краской.
7. Приклеила немного декора.
