The birth of a mini airship

Here is my latest testing phase...
Created from...
I love the fact that the nose cone is an ice-cream cone... that tickles my sense of humour...
The base is two cupcake stands joined at their bases
Then  added some conduit and fabric...

Now I need to finalize the design and add finishing touches and make the gondola

Little box with Prima moulds by IOD

I saw these moulds when Prima launched them and just had to have them cos I have been using icing moulds to make embellies for a while with smooth cast polyurethane.

Here is my little decoupage blank that I made over using the moulded items from both my icing moulds as well as the IOD moulds and Finn's rust paste set.
They start off white and you can make them any colour you like.  The Prima moulds by Iron Orchid Designs have a wonderful finnish to them and paint adheres so beautifully.

After I painted everything black, I then added the metallic paints, but that was not enough for me, so I rusted parts of it...
Below you can see the finished item with half of it rusted.
This link is a video of how I pour my moulds.
