Several years ago my brother asked me to make him a business card holder for his birthday. Well, don’t you know I just had to make at least 3 for him! (I’m like a science fiction writer apparently, I always do trilogies). My favorite (of course) involved tikis!
I used the PJ026 Tahiti Treasures from Penny Jo to make the tikis and leaves for this cardholder. I just made the bamboo by hand, roll a snake, cut it in half, use a needle tool to impress the bamboo pattern. After it was all baked, I washed with a mix of black and brown paint.
Penny’s website is: http://www.bestflexiblemolds.com The tikis are on the bottom of the faces and masks page. I spray a little water into the mold to act as mold release so the mold won’t stick to the clay.
