AI have been working on a competition piece for the past 6 weeks. I have just been glazing my teapot and dropped it placing it back on the stand! The competition is Friday week!:cry:

Awwww man, I feel so sorry for you sugarflorist. I hate when stuff like that happens. Do you think that it will dry in time if you make another one?

It is really cutting it fine enga, I know I can get the paste dry but not sure about the "glue", plus the sanding and the decoration and colour! Might just have to go with white china which means making a new cup and saucer too because I have already coloured that, but not got enough left to colour a teapot. At this I need tea and sympathy because I am feeling really sorry for myself. Looks like I have a long night remaking ;)

:( That made my stomach twist, and it didn't even happen to me.

Are any bits salvageable, or is it a total re-do? What medium are you using?

Sorry that happened to you.  I've dropped a tea cup I made (but had a spare), but it wasn't a competition piece.

So sorry to hear.  I can imagine the frustration and the shock of it.

Using modelling paste. It smashed like China. My son is always telling me to make spares but it all adds to the cost and time. I know he is right but I never learn. I generally loose flowers at some point but never a big peice like this!

I have entered for a floral arrangement (minimum of 12 full blooms) most competitors use some sort of vase not made with sugar but I personally feel that it is a cheat to do so. (Even though it is within the rules) and you gain extra points for making the effort. Really trying for a gold this time. So far I have achieved three silver awards.

Each competitor starts with 100 points and that gets reduced with each fault. So scores are banded. It does not work on gold being 1st . It workes on the points each entry gains. Then there is a best in show a 1st 2nd and 3rd all of whom get a monetary prize. So really you are always trying to beat your last score.
