Day 148 : Iced Gem

Day 148 : Iced Gem

Well, this didn't quite work, in that it is actually larger than a real iced gem biscuit! Unless of course they make them larger somewhere :)

But, I am quite pleased with the overall shape - a bit more domed (as in taller) than it appears here, but it is built up using a flatter disc and a large cloth ring, and another to pad out the icing part. I enjoy playing with forms to add dimension. If it weren't for the distress ink that I added to the fabric it probably could have been washed. 

The icing is some vintage silk from my stash. It's a lovely colour. And the fabric some silk left over from a client job. 

Size : 17mm / 11⁄16" / 28L
