Thanks for popping in. Been prepping next weekend’s TV shows on HOCHANDA this afternoon. Want to get ahead of the curve this week, because you just never know what’s around the corner, do you…
I do know that my fabulous front loading kiln is being delivered tomorrow though, so that’ll be a few hours learning how it works ! I can’t wait to give you a little virtual tour of the Pottery Studio when it’s all set. We’re nearly there. Dave assembled the wheel at the weekend…so that’s Christmas sorted – provided I learn how to mix glazes, use the kiln and fire the work! I love a challenge. Actually, it’s tiles I want to master first. proper, beautiful little art tiles. You know the folk art house doodles we are doing at the moment? Well, I see them as tiles, ceramic tiles. Wouldn’t that be peach?! You know, a little arty, a little grungy, a little raw. That’s going to be the first project…
Anyway, the Saturday shows are showcasing some of my favourite trees: Mel’s Treescape. We’ve played with the artwork and have come up with a smaller, 3-way overlay set. It is, if I may say so, absolutely brilliant ! So like proper layered printing! I’ve been playing all afternoon, putting them through their paces, working out different tricks n tips. So yes. Bring it on at 11am on Saturday! 4 seasons with one stampset…
If you’re not sure what I mean by 3-way overlay stampset, here’s a breakdown:
STAMP 1 – The outline
STAMP 3 – The background
STAMP 2 – The infill of the lineart, the tree trunks and branches
All 3 stamps work beautifully alone, but you can layer them up on top of one another, in different combinations. Tune in to HOCHANDA.com at 11am on Saturday, and I will explain it properly.
Time to call it a day. Stay safe.
