I am looking for inspiration for color.   That said, how to do, how to achieve?  I like creating small paper images and covering them with resin.  I like coloring resin.  On the list to try & perfect: enameling, colored pencils, setting more stones.  Tomorrow I challenge myself in the ceramics studio by glazing some of my olive dishes and salt bowls.  Glazing is always a tricky thing for me.  I’ll also work on some metal clay.  I like to patina metal.  I like the color that bronze clay & copper clay can achieve.  I like the surprise when opening a steel firing container filled with charcoal & digging for the treats. Side note: these shots were taken in California with a point & shoot camera.  I’m amazed at the technology, or maybe it’s my amazing Mac monitor….

 

featured pearl

 

Have you ever “googled” yourself?  I just did and found a mention and this photo on the “Metal Clay Magic” website.  This pearl is featured.  Funny I would not have known, I guess, had I not “googled” myself.  I’ve heard that word is being added to the dictionary.

Here’s the link:  http://metalclaymagic.com/

I’ll do some research, but I believe it’s an online Metal Clay e-zine.  Is that spelled correctly?  BTW….

It’s been such a warm fall, I’m ready to put on a jacket and feel a little chill in the air.  I’ve been busy laying out the Colorado Potters Guild postcard for our fall show.  I do the layout in Adobe Illustrator & edit the photos in Photoshop.  I wanted a different background, and first took a bunch of photos of fall trees, plants, etc.  I tried editing them in Photoshop but they all seemed too busy.   One of the members suggested I use an up close photo of some glaze.  So, here’s the final layout–pretty dramatic, huh?  Also, some of the shots I attempted for the background.
