Also the drama ... "Every single piece I make is ripped from my soul."


What Chris.... your's isn't?   Clearly your work process is lacking ;)






My process is indeed lacking John .... perhaps I just need more time stoking a wood kiln!!

Have so much fun with your new 'baby' ... :) :D

In Topic: What Is Your Most Valuable Piece Of Equipment In Your Studio?

I guess it's the table I work on ... I have had this IKEA dresser since 1977 and it has floated around my home doing one job or another ever since. When I got my own studio space I moved it in, mounted it on cinder blocks, screwed on a huge piece of hardiback (?) board to make it outsized and covered it with heavy duty plastic and canvas. Canvas has been replaced about four times and I keep meaning to put another surface on it other than canvas but never get around to it. It is huge enough to hold even my largest production runs and is just the right height. Drawers hold all my tools, stamps, molds and sketch books. It has taken a lot of abuse over the years and sometimes looks like it wants to fall apart ... but so far, so good.

What bothers me is the "Guilt Trip" feeling of it ...  "Buy this from me because I worked so hard on it."

Also the drama ... "Every single piece I make is ripped from my soul."

It's a lovely Facebook type sentiment, right up there with cute kitten videos ... but no real life translation.

No special recommend. They should all do it.
Let each layer dry to the touch between dips and they won't mix together ... It's only if the previous one is still runny that they would mix. You can decrease this risk even more by doing thin coats of the same color to build up a thicker layer.
It should be fun to make and wash ... The same day if you are in a dry climate.
