Above, a few random experiments. I think they are Christmassy, eh? A red cardinal and a gnome experiment that I did without reference. He's cute and looks Elf/Santa-like but I think he is missing fuzzy white eyebrows. Anyway, I am listing them on Etsy after I post here, along with a few other random things.
So I don't know, somehow yesterday I ended up glazing instead of playing. I think I realized I wouldn't be able to glaze today because I am going to my parents' house, so I wanted to get it done. So its done. Took all day too, I had more than I thought. I also sanded the 30 ornaments I made, which took a little longer than expected. Perhaps switching from porcelain to white stoneware like I did was not a good idea. They were kind of grainy and hard to sand. I will have to see how they turn out. Tomorrow will be a major shipping day so it is good to have a lot done. I have a mountain of invoices to enter in Quickbooks, so blah. Today I will play for a bit though, to make up for my lack of play yesterday.
One exciting thing in the kiln is two bisque molds I made for my cookieman charm. I usually make them by hand but there were getting difficult to make in the quantity I need, so I made a mold. Plus I made a little friend for him, a Cookiegirl! So I am excited to get the molds out and try them. It's always fun when there is something new waiting in the kiln.
I am off to it then. Enjoy your Sunday, all..
Ok, I just found a funny by video googling "Garden Gnome". This one is for you Charlie, lol! We need a Garden Gnome Chomsky for our garden too, don't you think?
