oooooooHHHHHHH! Remember those psychedelic 3-D hands in the form of a peace sign? You could even get your own hand waxed and use as a sculpture? They came in candles and such?

That would be awesome and very groovy, baby!!

Do you have any 3D pans? Which kinds of pans do you have? That will help us focus ideas for you. You can use the clay flower pots to bake in if that is useful. If you have the 3D bear pan, you could make him a hippie bear or something like that. icon_wink.gif

Best Wishes!

In one of the old Wilton year books is bluejeans made in the horsehoe pan. You could decorate with peace signs, love,etc. I will see if I can find which book it is in.

By baseball pan do you mean a sphere/ball shaped pan? Because you may be able to do a lot of various things with that.

Best of luck!
