Play Day in the Studio
A long, stressful day … but a good day. Started early this morning as we flew pups off to their new homes. Got home just in time to watch their flights progress across the country … New extended family in NJ, MD, FL and MN. All the babies did well, and I’m happy and sad at the same time.
To fix my mood, I spent the evening in the studio. Here is DH’s frit envelope, now fired.
And, then I played with transferring images onto glass (with gum arabic) …. Here are my first and second attempts … not so hot, so I didn’t bother to finish them. (Lettering needs to be reversed … DOH!)
But I started to get the hang of it … a little, anyway. We won’t talk about how much (oil based) ink I have all over my hands … good thing I’m due for a manicure. I like the smudgy newspaper quality of the last one … AND – it’s a photograph-type image!!! Definitely more fine-tuning and skill-acquiring but … YAY!!!
Time to see what the kiln does with them …
