Thanks again to Julia for organising this fun blog-hop where we all snoop on each other’s work desks and see what we are up to! Click the WOYWW link on the right to join.
I’ve been busy this week with two different activities, and I’ve made videos of both, which are now on Youtube.
The first one was an exercise to create a realistic-looking rust effect. I’ve done a blog post tutorial on this, complete with the video. You can see the piece I created at the front of my table, and at the back, most of the materials I used to create it – a combination of acrylic paints and gel mediums.
The other project was to start my mould making. I’ve been using Ranger Mold ’n Pour, but I’m not buying any more of this – you only get two very small tubs of the compound and it’s quite expensive for what you get. I’ve been exploring other options, and bought some stuff from Ebay, but when it arrived it was much too runny, and I’m trying to send it back, but as yet the seller hasn’t responded to the emails I’ve been sending him since Friday. On the right of my table you can see the moulds I’ve made so far, and in the centre, some of the items I used to create impressions in the silicone moulding compound.
Although I’ve made a video of this and uploaded it to Youtube, I haven’t yet done the blog post, but I should be doing that today or tomorrow, so watch this space!
Hope you’ve all had a good week and been nice and creative and productive, and wishing you all a happy WOYWW!
