Day 2 and 3 of Basics 107 - Pam's Vase experience

Day 2:


So the worst is over! Never before have I felt so much tension in class.. Just to give you an idea, the cake required 2-3 people to help cover it!!! Our partners were put to the test but, luckily, we didn't have a runner. My trusted friend and cake partner, Ellie, and I struggled.. and struggled.. and struggled until we both got the icing on the cakes - which, by the way, turned out quite beautifully!

Thanks, Ellie! =)

On a more serious note, it would be smart to check your face and clothes before leaving the room after a serious air-brushing session..

And yes, people WILL and DO stare if you're walking around with BLUE NOSTRILS!!!! ***cringe***
 
Day 3:
 
The energy was low in class today. Everyone just looked exhausted.


Luckily, all the big parts have already been completed, so were left to our own devices most of the day. I did all the painting and air- brushing before lunchtime just to make sure that the icing will be dry during the assembly. ***Note to self: check you nostrils before leaving class*** Speaking of colourful nostrils, it turned out that I wasn't the only one with embarrassing moments yesterday! SCORE!!!

Was I happy with my cake? Yes, I guess.. All the elements came together pretty well and I got to do draw and paint the sea turtles like I'd hoped to do.

I better go and work on my Facebook Page now - will sure keep you updated on the progress! Speak soon! xx
