The weekend zipped by, filled with trying to catch up on housework and laundry and other things that have waited too long (paying bills!). I didn't get as much time in my studio as I would have liked, however I did make another attempt at the patinated bowl and am much happier with the results so far. I'm waiting to receive a different copper metallic paste via FedEx which I will apply to the bowl, then take some photos to post here. Maggie Grey suggested a gilding wax different from what I have been using, which I shall try to find a US source for.
My UK pen-friend and photographer Jules has graciously given me permission to translate one of her photos into a fiber piece, probably something involving machine quilting. I'm anxious to get started. I will, of course, post the results here.
