So it’s that time of year again; the leaves have fallen, the skeletal trees lay bare and the warm touch of a summers afternoon seems a lifetime ago.
Yes, it is October once again, which means Halloween is upon us!
It’s been a busy and fast paced run up to Easter for the team at Crystal Parade, the first quarter of the year has been full of interesting and exciting projects. The most recent and definitely the most notable has seen the team working with the world renowned cake artist, Emma Jayne Cake Design.
The UK’s premier online retailer of craft supplies, embellishment equipment and costume making materials has been very busy recently. The team at the Warwickshire based company were commissioned to crystallise the house drape for the recent pantomime production of Cinderella at the London Palladium.
For many crystallizing projects, especially gifts, you may wish to write something in crystals such as a name, initial or age. It can be harder than it looks to get the text looking professional – it takes a bit of practice! Firstly, we recommend you practice gluing the crystal lettering onto a piece of paper, before you attach them directly to the surface of the object you are crystallizing.
