My messy studio bursting with prints!
I had a little art victory at the end of last week: I successfully figured out how to burn new silk screen images right in my very own home. I used to have to go to an art studio with special facilities for this, but luckily, now I can do it without leaving the house! I was so excited that it went off without a hitch on the very first try. I thought it would be months of trial and error to perfect the process and equipment... Who knew it could be so easy? I was able to burn 3 images: parts one and two of a "Craft is Love" print and the "Lady Lady" print you see below.
Other than that, I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my first package of metal clay, which is supposed to get here tomorrow. I've been wanting to try this stuff for about a year, and I finally took the plunge and bought all of the supplies. I seriously can't wait! I love working with polymer clays, so I'm hoping it will be easy to transition to metal clay. I'm really excited to use a torch to fire these pieces, too!
Here is a scan of the finished "Lady Lady" print, up for sale here:
