busyness of last week. Heather and I spent two days
working with our etching projects, but of course we
couldn't do a couple of stampings we managed to make
a hundred pieces of brass and copper. Talk about over
doing on a first time project! We cut, stamped, etched,
pickled, polished and made some killer stuff.
We have a nice video to that Heather is gonna edit and
put out so you can see.
Then our friend Melanie from Earthenwood Studios
came for a couple of days to visit with Heather and stay
at my house. We spent a day (a very long one), getting
Heather and Melanie pounding, heating and preparing
stuff to put into our pendants. I was taking some pictures
and making a couscous dish for lunch. I got a little behind,
couldn't find any of my small items to put into my pendants.
So needless to say I still have things to make. Beverly and
I can work on some when she gets here. I paid very close
attention and managed a couple of pieces, so I can finish my
stuff later .
These are the four finished pieces of mine, above.
And these are Melanie's. Three totally different artists,
and three totally different looks. We used Ice Resin that
I purchased from Ornamentea.com. Very easy to mix and
super easy to pour. No smell, but could be messy, so take
your time! Heather will be heading home soon. That's gonna
be a sad day. We have had so much fun these last few weeks.
But she'll be back at Christmas and my sister and brother are
coming in here intwo weeks. Best summer I've had in a long time.
This week Geary and I head for the tennis championships in
Indianapolis. We love to go to those matches.
