Lilesadi loves…Gang of Freyja

Our friend Juliette Sallin from Geneva just opened her new label Gang of Freyja. The mythology around the beautiful and untamed goddess Freyja inspired her to create her own drawings, thoughts and inspiration around beauty, femininity and the sensuous wilderness of life.

Step 2 : Go outside or in a well ventilated place to spray the jar in gold and let dry.

Step 3 : Condition the clay by kneading to get it more soft and moldable. Mix the two color by using this great technique that I found on The Felted Fox Blog.

Step 4 : Use a glass bottle or a rolling pin to flatten the ball of clay. Apply it on the bottom of the jar that has aluminium foil on it to protect it. Form the edges.

Step 5 : Bake the bowl form, with de aluminium foil in it, according to the manufacturer’s directions. Allow it to cool completely.

Step 6 : Varnish the bowl form. Ik you want you can glue onto the jar. But if you don’t, you can aslo use the clay part as a little bowl next to your jar.

Voilà!
