Sugar Mold

I listed this sugar mold today on eBay for the
AB4B "Crow in the Cornfield" Launch.

I love the antique look achieved by painting a light base color.
Sanding and dry brushing black.
I painted a layer of Glaze Medium with a Dark Brown (6:1).
Very gently, I laid a terry cloth towel, pressing firmly,
and slowly lifted the towel trying not to smear.


I then splattered some black specs.


This is a Relfections of the Past pattern by
Cynthia Erekson of the Quilted Acorn Shoppe.


It's painted in a very primitive folk art style.
I really like how it came out.


I tried to find some info on sugar molds,
and didn't have much luck.
Found this great photo however!
