Borax crystals

Hi guys and welcome back to the SillyGoose blog !! So I recently made a craft that I saw on Pinterest and found it so so mesmerising! They are called borax crystals It’s really cool 👍

So the thing is about borax crystals is that they are not only soooo pretty but really easy to make at home.

Ingredients:

Borax powder

Water

Food Colour (optional )

Pipe cleaners

String

Stick/ pencil

Something to mix with/in

So the first step is to make a base shape with the pipe cleaner and attach it to a pencil with some string and put it in the borax solution (borax solution down below )

Borax solution:

Fill a large bowl or container in hot boiling water and pour a lot and a lot of borax powder, you need like a truckload of borax! And then dissolve it in make sure that it’s dissolved completely or it might not work. You can now add in your food colouring along with the pipe cleaner base.

The next step is to simply wait overnight or 8 hours! So here is how mine turned out it’s not perfect but I still tried !

I hope you liked it !! Comment down below and like the post if you did!

My request will be in the next post!!

Have a great day/night.. TOODLES !!

The woods and the portal

Here is some new marker art that I made recently. It is about a lost girl who enters an alternative dimension and learns something new …So without further ado let’s begin the tale ..( if you want the pictures just skip ahead although it won’t be too long )

The little girl hurried into the deep dark forest , careful not to be seen. A spark of light burst out somewhere in the distance! She ran forward. Curiosity had gotten the best of her. She stopped in awe… A gigantic portal , the size of the house . Stood there illuminating the woods ! It was so bright so mysterious.. she had nothing to loose she jumped..All that was left was her scarf ….

Okay I know this was a little lame but I felt like it needed a backstory so yeah .. anyways here is the picture I think it’s pretty good it’s the first time I made a side view in a while soo yep 👍

I hope you like it !! Leave a suggesting in the comments down below !! Don’t forget to like ! Toodles !!!!

New digital art !!

Hello !! I finally made a new digital art !! So this was very unexpected to draw really .. I had a picture in my mind of what I wanted to draw but I wasn’t sure it was going to end up that way . Anyways I was going for a girl with a warm skin tone and face and a cool hair colour and eyes, I basically had a plan of what I wanted to put on the canvas . But since I got so excited to colour, I made a really rough and messy sketch which didn’t really go too well with the colours on top. Soo yeah. Also for the hair I kind of rushed but that’s okay ! I learned to use shading and blend without the blur tool ! So it was actually just a learning experience for me! I really want to get better at drawing and painting digitally so yeah . She turned out completely different than what I expected her to look like !! So without further ado I will show you the painting !!

Hope you liked it !! Comment down some new art or craft suggestions I could draw or try !! TOODLES !!

New marker Art

So recently my mom got me a 80 set of alcohol based markers ! The thing about these markers Is that they are different to water based ,normal markers. They blend super well and also have the ability to layer. The ones I got are called Touch Me markers , they are alcohol based.

So anyways the markers are really amazing and easy to use . The colours are a bit confusing because sometimes the colour on the lid is different from the actual marker itself . Another thing is that there is no brush nib , which is sad , but it’s something you can live without. Apart from that the markers blend really well and layering is great ! But you also need to buy special breed proof paper. So anyways here is the drawings!! These are most of the good drawings coloured with markers ! P.s – I did not draw the flower I just coloured it .

Girl drawing

I drew this girl with colour pencil. She has a similar hairstyle to me and wears a long scarf, I finally learned how to colour skin properly, and I wanted to work on the expression . I think it turned out nice , what do you think? Leave a like and comment below !!

Spider drawing 🕷🕸

So new year is over , and now it’s back to the usual art and craft but now It is my goal to post 2-3 times a week so yeah anyways …I had drawn this spider a few days ago . It was made with colour pencil

It was actually inspired by a YouTuber I really like who drew a spider too , and I felt like I needed a break from drawing digitally and drawing people and anime.

So then I got out my sketch book and started sketching, for this I actually needed very pigmented colour pencils and also you needed to put shadows ,Otherwise it wouldn’t look so good or realistic .. and about half and hour later the spider was done !!
