Fluid Art

We had a go at fluid art after watching a free course on Udemy. We followed the starter tutorial using paint, PVA and silicone lubricant.

The results were not great and not sure what went wrong or if it was something about the materials we used. Will look into a bit more and watch some videos on YouTube and give it another go.

This was a project for Jack’s Art Award Bronze so it’s a shame it didn’t work out better. Though if he decides to carry on working with the technique he can write about how he experimented and researched to improve.

Nature Journal – Evergreens

We found some different plants in the garden. We had some snow so it marmt really practical to go for a mature walk this week. We Google searched one plant, which turned out to be Irish ivy, make some leaf rubbings, silhouettes and sketches. We also have some ivy leaves in the flower press to be stuck in later. 

Yummy Oat Flour Cakes

Today Rowan and I made these mini loaf cakes using homemade oat flour. We had to use regular sugar as that’s all we have but I reduced the amount (I often do with cakes and they still bake and taste fine). 

They were lovely, springy and moist ❤ definitely a hit and will make them again. The texture was really nice and they didn’t have that grainy feel gluten free cakes often have. I may try the recipe as a large cake in future. We’re going to have the rest with custard tomorrow.
