  1. Bunga Pahar Stokin

    July 29, 2009 by admin

    I rarely do workshop for bunga stokin, reason being it takes a lot more effort to teach students to do bunga stokin compared to bunga dip or any other classes I used to conduct.

    So for those who are interested to learn how to do bunga telur stokin, grab the chance by attending my class which will be held in Putrajaya Presint 16 this 2nd August 2009. I will teach how to make butterfly using stokin as well (another favorite among students..hehe!)

    For more details, please check at my business website : http://www.bungatelur.com

    The above bunga pahar stokin was made last year (or was it last, last year(?) for clients in KL and Brunei) It seems that the favorite wedding theme color for the previous year was gold brown..heh!


  2. More On Decoupage

    July 10, 2009 by admin

    Being new to the art of decoupage a few years ago, I was excited to do it on most of the materials I found at home – things like empty jam bottle, IKEA ceramic pot and even wooden box.

    This empty jam bottle has strawberry design on its lid, so since I got a napkin with the same design I decided to try and decoupage it. I think the color of the background is too bright, I should have tone down the yellow acrylic with some white gesso.

    It took me some times to finish up this wooden box. With wood, you have to seal the surface first, let it dry for few days and then only you can paint the background. I was impatient to finish the painting task thus the messy look at the handle and around the metal buttons. Next time I will use a smaller brush to paint at such spots.

    I got a napkin design with borders so I thought since I planned to use the ceramic IKEA pot for topiary arrangement, I might as well decoupage the border onto the pot. But up till now, I still didn’t do the topiary, so the pot has been used as the holder for all the scissors for my decoupage class..heh!
