Oh … I’ve done it now!
While being sick, to boot! That’s my excuse, anyway … I have been dreaming about the ‘Cadillac’ of glass paints for a LONG time now. Umm, not anymore … I ordered ‘em! Cuz, my screen printing equipment arrived, and I realized I needed more enamels! I’m just waiting for those to arrive …
In the meantime, I feel like I’m battling the worst hangover (EVER!!!) – WHILE being 3 months pregnant (the stage when every smell – or EVEN the suggestions of smells make you nauseated) … it’s not ME up in here, I’ve been over-run by viruses! [That’s my official excuse if DH sees the invoice for my Cadillac glass paints … just sayin’!] I did manage to cook dinner for the Fam … while they were going on and ON(!) about pork chops, turkey, Thanksgiving dinner and (I swear) just about any other intense aroma/odor they could think of to make my gut roll! But – being the tough nut that I am … no vomiting yet. Just lots of chills and body aches … SWEET! I have to work tomorr … uh, later today!
Ehh – whatever. No vomiting means no wimping out. So, I’ve played in the studio a bit. Trying some different screen printing techniques. The dove is on a previously slumped piece of DH’s glass (glue chip) … so fusing it twice meant it lost it’s ‘glue-chip appeal’. But, it’s a starting point. Then, I screen printed the Grinch (he’s my hero) – stage one. So far, so good!
And, I played with etching irid glass – this time 90 vs. 96 … 96 etches better. But, now I know …
Also moved my cabs along. Had a mishap, and produced joined-twins … DOH! Made the decision to ‘surgically’ separate … and it turned out well, I think. I should be able to refinish/fire-polish them back to individual health!
Which is what I’m hoping for me … I need to kick these virus cells out and take back command of this ship!
