mini Christmas ornaments--shiny little angels

A couple weeks ago, I introduced you to my latest love, Li-Qua-Che, a liquid mache from Activa.  For you today I have another Christmas project, this time created with Li-Qua-Che and silicone candy molds.
these molds are really quite small
These molds are similar to the kind used with polymer clay, and once again the dried piece popped out quite easily.
Lots of shiny paint--plus, if that's not glittery enough, Wink of Stella is great for adding extra sparkle to any project.

Look at all gorgeous detail--the Li-Qua-Che doesn't miss a single thing!

Add some sweet angel faces from a Christmas Angels collage page, and some ribbon hangers:

The images are adhered to a patterned paper, so that the backs of the ornaments are almost as pretty as the fronts.  Everything is held together by that classic go-to, Tacky Glue.

Have a wonderful Christmas, everyone!  

 P.S.  Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win the Activa Celuclay project book.  The more December posts you comment on, the more your chances you have.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
