How I Made Moon & Stars Over the Lake
First I made the moon using a 1 inch silicone column mold and "Here Comes The Bride" mica from Mad Micas. I let it set up a day before I removed it from the mold.
Next I made the hills using the following 16 ounces(oil) of this formula:
Canola Oil 12.5%, Castor Oil 6.25%, Coconut Oil 31.25%, Cottonseed Oil 20%, Palm Oil 25% and Shea Butter 5%. The colors I used were rainforest and emerald green. I used Green Irish FO 0.8 oz from Nature's Garden. I mixed it to medium trace then poured into a wooden mold lined with freezer paper. I used a divider made from cardboard:
I used a small plastic piece to run along the hills to get the curve I needed. I cut the piece from a plastic jug. It was about 1.5 inches x 1.5 inches. It looked like this:
This is what the hills looked like after I shaped them.
I then made the lake using the same formula as the hills but with blue vibrance mica. That took about a hour to cool the oils and mix the lye. I made 12 ounces and poured enough to cover the hills just a bit. I let this set up for an hour while I made the sky using the same formula and Cheshire Cat Purple with a small bit of charcoal. I blended it to light trace and began pouring layers. For each layer I added about 1.5 ml of a gardenia FO from Lebermuth while rapidly accelerated trace. I poured it in the mold and within 5 minutes it was firm and I could pour the next layer. There was no charcoal in the first layer but I gradually increased the amount of charcoal in each subsequent layers. After about the first 2 layers I placed the moon. I poured another layer and started adding the stars which were simply cake decorating round white sprinkles. That's all there was to it.
