This has been a great creative week in the studio and we have been all over the place. We have played with torches, enamel, paper, fabrics, saws, paints and ended the week with a yard sale.
There is never a dull moment in the STUDIOS.
At the right is one of the pieces that I created when we had the torches and enamels out. I started with a piece of copper that I fold-formed and then decided to enamel the finished piece. I attached the flower bead at the bottom with copper wire and an enameled head pin. A few silk ribbons and voila... a finished piece!
The other pictures are of beads and "flowers" that were some pieces that we played with. Now I need to get a class sample ready so you all know what you will make if you decide to take the Painting With Fire class!
We played with several variations of making the papers and think we have a solution that may make it a bit simpler for producing it and make some fun packets to sell in Phoenix. We're going to try the new process out tomorrow if the weather cooperates. I believe it'll make it much faster and easier.
