Thanks for popping in.
Once the workshop came to an end today,
and we waved goodbye to our lovely guests,
I shot off to see the dentist again, to get to the root of the problem… (excuse the pun).
Nothing he could do to help except assure me that Dry Socket hurts like hell, (no shit Sherlock),
but that it does get better after 2 to 3 weeks.
And the good news is it’s already been a week!
It’s not terminal. It’s just tooth ache.
And 2 things really, really help:
Clove oil for numbing the area,
and teaching for distraction.
Have an abundance of both.
Oh! And I’ve lost half a stone because I can’t eat properly.
At the workshop yesterday, Elaine,
a traditional parcher and very clever crafter,
mentioned that you could use acrylic paint on parchment.
Mmmmm, thought I.
So when I got back tonight,
out came the Gel Printing plate and some blue paint.
Thursday’s blog is always BLUE.
(By the way, the project with the paints mostly worked today, because we kept the paints in the fridge overnight.)
Another valuable lesson!
This is COOOOOOL.
|excellent piece of kit.|
Soft mat underneath and a couple of Ball tools.
Here’s the No. 6 Pergamano.
Excellent for shading larger areas.
But look how you can add highlights from behind!
I kept the painty side on the front and worked from behind.
But let’s get in a little closer.
All set for day 5 tomorrow.
Looking forward to welcoming our new guests.
Love & Peace,
