Studio Ghibli charms

Made from Sculpey and painted – I ruined them with the varnish though. Apparently an ink wash doesn’t like to be varnished. Here they are pre-varnish though, painted with acrylics:

Princess Mononoke’s mask, and NoFace:

Gold Dinosaur Wedding!

Sooooo if you haven’t guessed by now, our wedding was sort of dinosaur themed… it was never really meant to be, but you know how these things go.

Shout out to Jo at Shiny Rubbie People for the amazing fern cake. And for indulging me by letting me add my golden dino-bride and groom…

Dino veil was a scrap of fabric netting tucked into the pearls. Pearl necklace was an elastic plastic-pearl ring from eBay, and dino groom is sporting a miniature bow on ribbon, all attached with double-sided tape. The bunting is made from ‘sample’ scraps of fabric and ribbon (eBay) and a couple of skewers, all held together by mini pegs, dodgy sewing and a healthy dose of luck.

As for the gold dinos, just regular plastic toy dinosaurs sprayed gold with Plastikote. Very thin layers or you get a flaking issue.

The rubbery dinosaurs didn’t take to the paint too well and never fully dried, so I’m pretty sure there were a few kids with sparkly fingers at the reception. Oops! The tiny dinosaurs made great favours though, along with little origami boxes full of gourmet jellybeans.

And of course, no wedding is complete without A SATIN AND SILVER DINOSAUR TAIL!
