So many expressed interest in the porcelain heart I used in the flower bouquet and here is yet another project using handmade porcelain embellishments  plus the promised tutorial to making the “faux” porcelain heart embellishment .Both the white “porcelain” heart and flower on this altered project are handmade.

Altered project
This is the plastic box I altered to make a notepaper holder.Lined the box with pattern paper and sealed the edges with washi  tape. I love how easily washi can mask and smoothen the cut edges in a 3 D project.

Added a dangling heart charm to match the stamped die cut lacy hearts and porcelain heart.
The porcelain hearts and flowers in this altered photo frame were my first experiment and if you look carefully you can spot the jagged edges on the porcelain flower embellishments.

How to make Porcelain Embellishments

Materials Required to make Porcelain embellishments

  • Hot glue gun – I used the regular size one not the mini one needed for the mod melts
  • Glue sticks –I used regular glue sticks and not mod melts.You will find glue sticks in 2 sizes in the market- the regular size and the mini ones. I have seen 3  colours of regular size glue sticks – transparent, milky white and a woody colour types in my local craft store Itsy Bitsy. [ the wood colour is the most expensive but still cheaper than mod melts] I used the milky white one to make the porcelain embellishments
  • Silicon moulds – mine are chocolate moulds picked up from my local supermarket. the plastic ones wont work and the plunger cutters wont work either [ don't try as I managed to spoil one lovely plunger cutter  experimenting with hot glue!!]
  • Scissors- to trim jagged edges
Heat the glue gun so that your glue is really flowing

Press the nozzle and let the glue fill all the nooks and crannies of the mould. You need not fill in the whole mould if you don't want a very thick embellishment. See the little porcelain star I made by partially filling the star mould.

Handmade embellishments
Let the glue dry – takes less than 10 minutes and pop your  porcelain embellishment out of the mould! Use a sharp scissors to trim any jagged edges at the base and your porcelain embellishments are ready!
