My Magic 'Shrooms

Post  Mooch on Mon Apr 30, 2012 2:50 pm

I love all things whimsical. I have a fascination with Mushrooms and I have lots of them around the house lol. I love anything where you can put secret messages or great quotes. I got to thinking, why not use the idea of a Kokeshi Doll but make it a Mushroom. I'm sure my hubby thinks I'm nuts monkey Very Happy

These pictures were taken on my phone as it's just come off the mandrel. So excuse the blurry-ness

This is just over 3cms tall. I will be trying out alsorts of ideas based on hidden messages in glass sculptures. I hope you like x

They're fab! I can't see how you put a hidden message in unless the "roof" comes off. Does it?

Thank you Smile x

I've done them on a double dipped 3mm mandrel. Like Kokeshi/Momiji (or Friendship) Dolls the secret message is rolled tightly and shoved in the hole. I don't know if it will work but thought I'd make a couple flower
