Thinking outside the box a little, and wondering what other uses a lace mould might have, I decided to make some lace flowers! The little spray above was made using the whole area of the Madeline lace mould for the large flower and just the centre part of the mould for the smaller flowers, using the mexican hat method for both. The leaves were made from the Arwen leaf mould, and wired.
Another two examples of lace mould flowers. These were both made with the Anika lace mould. The flower on the left was made using the mexican hat method from the whole of the mould. Manufactured stamens attached to a wire were inserted into the centre of the flower, and supported until it was dry. The leaves were freehand cut and embossed by pushing the paste into the surface of the mould. The flower on the right was made by making a lace piece and leaving it to dry in an apple tray. The "stamens" are tiny balls of paste glued in place with a sugar glue. The leaves are lace pieces made using the Arwen leaf mould and left to dry over a slightly curved surface.
