Tools need - cup & saucer, cheap bendable fork, glue gun, acrylic paint, spray glitter varnish, pebeo gilding waxes & as many die and punch cut flowers in black cardstock from Stampin Up vast range.
So changing the look of the cup and saucer just paint several coats of acrylic paint leaving to dry between coats and then finish with a spray lacquer with some sparkle in as this gives a sort of granite look. Now the tricky part using the fork bend it at the base where the prongs are and bend it at the top of the handle. Attach the prong part to base of plate with hot glue. Use lots and make a base of hot glue first to bed prongs into. Wait for a good few hours until the glue has set completely and the fork is well stuck to the saucer. Then using a support (I used a pile of books) hot glue the inside of the cup and attach to the handle of the fork bent to accommodate. Now this again is tricky part as make sure the cup is balanced so that it is not top heavy and will fall over when released from support. Again allow to dry before removing support.
If all goes well you should have a saucer with a fork bent onto a cup, making it float. If it is top heavy and falls over weight the saucer down with a large pebble or stick weights to underside of saucer.
I wanted a metal look which I think I achieved but there are all sorts of possibilities. Paint the cup and saucer in geometric designs and fill with brightly coloured flowers for a Clarice Cliff look.
So do have a go and create something unique.
