Before you go and think “Wow, she’s unpacked quickly and started painting!”, this is one I made earlier 🙂

I was having a hard time getting the saucer on this cup to look anything but wonky. And as I said to myself “If only I had a bendy thing to draw around” I remembered I had a fantastic little gadget tucked away in a drawer called a flexi-curve.

Essentially it’s a piece of wire in thick pliable rubber. You can curve it at any angle or even bend it into a wiggley worm shape!

It really helped tidy up the curve on the saucer.

So that is my helpful hint for today! Back to the unpacking.
