Yogurt Cup Saints: Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Juan Diego
Juan's tilma even has a miniature imprint of Our Lady's image on it. Her veil is covered with handpainted stars.
I'm looking forward to making some for the patron saints in our home, and a few other saints, throughout the year. It seems that each one gets a bit easier to make, although I did have difficulty getting Our Lady's face just right. I tried five times to capture the beauty of her image. Finally settled on simple dots for eyes and a line drawing for her nose and mouth.
Will work on more of these during the year, in hopes that I can publish a tutorial on how to make them during Advent 2011. Start saving those 6 oz. yogurt cups!
