I haven’t been in the studio for a while now and am itching to get back in there. Instead I’m thinking about resists for shells again so yesterday collected a few shells from the beach where I live so I can examine them more closely. I’d like to base my designs on local shells so they will provide a good starting point. Oh, I also started beading a new necklace in the evening to keep my hands busy!
Thanks, Lindsay. I cant wait to see what you do with the shells. they are hard to wrap my head around. I would live to see the necklace as well My daily dose today was doing some sketches for pictures. One ting I have discovered is that some people are working much larger than I had thought. I was wondering how they get all the detail in. If your piece is 2'x4' or 3'x5' the is lots of room for details. Here I am working on 5"x6" and 10"x12" and wondering how to make everything fit with lots of detail. I need to work bigger. It is hard to fight against the don't waist stuff gene, what if it doesn't work then it's all waisted.
