I've been experimenting with how to get texture under foils and gold leaf. I've been looking at Icons and loved the background textures. The one on the left uses drips of pva glue, and below is the unsuccessful texture gel.
You have to wonder why I chose to decorate the experiment with raspberries - I have no idea; I was aiming for a pear.
I wonder if I was preoccupied with my experiments and wasn't concentrating when it came to cooking tea. I'm not the best cook these days to be honest. We sat down to tea and neither DH nor I said a word. About half way through I looked up and said "I shall be glad when this is finished" and DH said "perhaps microwaving might soften the vegetables".
2 days ago, we had a letter from the TV producers who do Come Dine With Me, asking if we'd like to take part.
