I made 17 projects in January.
New things I tried:
-homemade pasta( past posts)
-creating 5 new recipes. the one I liked best was the beet-orange-goat cheese salad.
-new art medium: oil pastels for the first time
-new art medium try: encaustic like painting with oil pastels.
I have tried melting the pastels. So, I used a heat gun, the heated pastel leaves a thick trace but it cools down very fast.
Then, I tried drawing on an electric grill plate. This works fine. The heat has to be high enough. It leaves a thick layer. It reminds me of Impressionism but it uses pastels like crazy.
-new art medium: pencils that have three colors on the same lead.
