In the Night Kitchen is one of our favorite bedtime reads. We all like to chant “Milk in the batter, milk in the batter, we bake cake and nothing’s the matter!” and howl “Cock-a-doodle-doo!” with Mickey.
I made this small charm as a sort of tribute to Maurice Sendak’s legacy. It’s Mickey, of course, diving in to get milk for the morning cake. This famous, or possibly infamous, image, resulted in the book being banned from many libraries, so it seemed like a fitting homage to a man who wasn’t afraid to push boundaries.
This project involved a bit of trial and error, so there are no step by step pictures, for now. Like this tutorial, I printed the image on transparency paper. I then fussy cut it out and inserted it into the mini bottle. I mixed resin with a bit of white paint and did four separate pours, allowing it to rest for a day between each pour. For the last pour I didn’t add any paint, so you can see Mickey’s face better.
I would love the chance to share this little charm with one of my readers! A hook will be added so you may wear it as a pendant if desired. I hope you’ll enter for a chance to win. Just use the Rafflecopter dealio below to enter! Good luck!
