1  UNITED STATES / Vermont / Printmaking Demo Shout Out on: June 07, 2007 05:54:52 PM
Hey all,

Just wanted to get the word out to anyone in the area that 'my' store is doing a series of free printmaking demos this June & July.  We also are hoping to get some more print or paper-collage art up on the walls (framed stuff best at this point, or if it's clothing, clothes hangers work too...just call & make arrangements)
We have Speedball sending their demonstrator Tonya up next weekend for a silkscreening & then blockprinting demo (Fri June 15th 4-6 & Sat June 16th 11-1, respectively.)  I'm very much looking forward to this one because the boy and I have both wanted to do silkscreening for a long time, and even though I sell the supplies, I haven't made time to do it on my own.  Even with the great tutorials here.

Also there will be a monotype (with oils) demo, a hands-on-printing-for-kids demo and then a papermaking demo, between now and the end of July. 

All free demos except the one next Friday (June 15th)  will be on Saturdays from 11-1, call for the dates.  You don't need to sign up, just show up.

Looking forward to seeing some local Craftsters!

2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / (mostly) daily creature drawings on: December 07, 2005 06:19:11 PM
This project is something my mister suggested for my site.  I've been at it for just under a month, and he's updating it for me every few days or so.  Thus the (mostly) daily.  The drawings are in sets of twelve, changing the medium each time I have a new page.  I'm going to keep it b&w for now, because I'm trying to push my compositions AND contrast. 

I just finished the second set, and would love some feedback.

and here's the link:  go to http://www.obscurius.org/sweet_enemy/ and then click on 'creature a day'

Thanks for looking!

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Happily completed necklace! on: June 05, 2005 07:19:58 PM
Okay, I wasn't able to get across how translucent the beads are, but just imagine that whatever is white is actually almost transparent.  I made the beads by sort of following the "imitation agate" directions in Polymer: The Chameleon Clay by Victoria Hughes.  Mine is the lazy-girl's version.  Lots and lots of sanding later, plus a little bit of clear varnish, and I was able to present my mom with a 50th birthday gift I was rather proud of.

I cannot recommend that book enough!
