(Yet another) new hobby is born …
I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it …
The heat press came today – YAY!! Meet Mr. DC16AP … isn’t he cute? We did some rearranging in the studio to give him a good home. And even though my much needed ‘heat tape’ has not yet arrived, I couldn’t wait to play, but first … Here’s the rearranged studio – I like it, and it gives me additional storage for ready-to-slump wine bottles:
And – here are my first attempts at dye-sublimation. Sophie is crooked, Zeus is off-centered (which wouldn’t happen if one used heat tape) … but I love them! They’re 2 inch tiles, and will look cute on my fridge. They’re inexpensive, so a great place to start the learning curve … I can’t wait to make some amazingly cool stuff!
Meanwhile, I ran both kilns last night: Mobile centers (big medallion-y things) and a new pressed glass blank. The black in it reminds me of Japanese symbols … kinda neat!
And – I did get some work done today too … the front garden beds are weeded and mulched. Looking much better and ready for summer! I plan to get more of the yard work done tomorrow – in between playing with the heat press …
Wonderful. Can you put them in a neckless?
Cheryl … Hey girl! Yep, sure can. Haven’t played much with dye-sub pendants – just waiting to try! 🙂
