hey how are you enjoying shark week?
i haven't watched one show yet.
i think it's cuz i feel like the guy in the green suit, which you will see in this post soon enough.
it's cuz one of my kids started school this week, the other one is a teen that starts next week, and so we haveta figure out what she's gonna do, and i headed on back to work M-F myself.
sigh. no more sleeping in since my summer is officially gone but i did somehow get to make something.
let's put on our scuba gear and take a look since it's underwater...
oh molds! how do i love thee?
i love thee to the depths and breaths...ok ok so it's no lie i got this thing for silicone molds.
my sis lives in the big apple and they have the coolest stores there, one being a place called paper presentation.
holy cow what an awesome crazy fun craft store that was! i looked online to see if i could direct you to this mold to get it too but it's not sold at their online shop. boohoo!
(so here's another way to get it here if you want but it is kinda pricey online, unlike the price i got it for.)
imagine my heart skipping when i saw these a few weeks before official shark week so hot diggety into the cart they went!
when i got them home,
i wanted to do something a little different.
next i made some bluish gray colored candy melt.
and yes it was a messy job but someone's gotta do it.
no worries though cuz once the candy firms up, it cleans up super easy cuz it just flakes away with a little nudge.
btw, is your mask getting fuzzy or blurry?
no worries, i promise you won't drown or nothing, it's just the deep water effect.
ok let's see what's next.
hot diggety again these trader joe's truffles are soooo yummy!
i was gonna make my own truffle filling but the heck with that when these are so good and already made.
so i did this:
either shake the mold gently or hit the mold on the counter to smooth out the candy and get the air bubbles out.
i forgot to take a pic of that for you.
then freeze to firm up and pop them babies outta the mold.
i made the divers the same way i made the sharks with more colored candy melts.
hmmm...what's that shark complaining about?
well it's about time those sharks knew what it felt like to not be them.
wonder if they saw it coming?
well, the green scuba diver dude reminds me of how discombobulated i feel lately but i don't think i would be comforting a shark.
not with a dismembered arm anyway.
