Paul I would get the same pillow and blanket if my husband caught me,  I make sure everything is out of the oven before he gets home.  I especially like slow drying molds in the oven during humid weather.   Denice

Marcia sometimes I get carried away with primitive symbols, several year ago I made some lamps covered with symbols that are found in the New Mexico are carved into the side of cliffs and rock walls.  I have book shelves full of reference books of  different primitive cultures and art history.  My in-laws were world travelers for 60 years and brought back tons of art work that I get to study.  Inspiration every where and so little time.  Denice

Jack you need to list your location or least what part of the US you live in or what country.  Different clays are sold in different areas and learning to work with clay that is available to you locally is much cheaper.  Potters can recommend the clay they work with but you would probably need to ship it to get it.   Denice

I try not to look at other peoples work I am afraid it will influence me to much.  I'm one of those people who can copy what they see and sometimes unintentionally copy.  One time I made some fairly large catus and put it near a pool table, people would freak out about it thinking it was real.  We go to car shows all summer long so I take a sketch pad along and steal designs from classic cars.  I also use nature as an inspiration and books on primitive art.  Denice


In Topic: Selling Your Items To Stores

17 November 2014 - 09:32 AM

It's much easier when the store buys the pieces than consignment.  I owned a wallpaper/paint store I had many room displays in it.  I would have painters come in and ask me is they could display paintings in them that were for sale.  I was worried about the safety of the paintings from small children, parents would come in and let them run wild.  My insurance agency told me the paintings  wouldn't be covered so I told any artist  they would need insurance.  I wasn't even taking a commission but they still expected me to insure their paintings.  I never had any paintings in the store but I did end up with a easy answer when I was asked.     Denice
