Couple things this week. Got in a small order of paper clay that I have been wanting to fool around with for a while now.
Fun stuff! I did a small head, just a quick doodle, and played around with it for a while. I’m not exactly shot through with the stuff, but I love that you can literally sculpt with a damp paint brush. I managed to give the little dude some nice sculptured bones and even sort of wrinkly veins doing that. I don't know that it is something I would want to use a lot, its a bit mushy, but I can definitely see myself using it from time to time.
I also managed to figure out a few beading things. I have one super cool bracelet done, its big and chunky, and I love it lots. I also figured out a cool pattern for a cuff, but ended up frogging it because of one bad bead in the middle. Ok.. more then one, and I would rather redo the whole thing so it is firmly in my mind. So yeah, crafting is good… Crafting from cool stuff I picked up at the thrift shop is even better!! and I cant find any batteries that will hold a charge…. so no photos. Which also means no Etsy.
Hopefully I can remedy that tomorrow.
I also managed to figure out that my shuttle tatting is… well I am dyslexic, so I was actually doing the entire thing upside down, or backwards. Which is fine, I suppose, but I want to do it right. I’m thinking I might go back to needle tatting, partly because I don’t really have to think about what I’m doing as much, and I’m a bit into the “I don't want to think about anything” mode lately.
I did also get my flickr all set with photos of my glass art and some old projects that I had photos of. You can find them all here.
