Oh NO Not Me and Other Replies to Will You Help Me Sand!

Oh NO Not Me and Other Replies to Will You Help Me Sand!

Getting ready to teach my intermediate resin class at the Tampa Museum of Art. Today we will work on mold making and finishing which requires a lot of hand sanding up to an 8000 grit paper. Finishing is the most difficult part of the resin process. When I prepare for large shows I always hire assistants to do the finishing. Sanding for hours is not as easy as it seems. I have never been able to get anyone to return for another cycle of non-stop sanding!

This Out of Africa 3 bracelet took 5 hours of sanding to get a glass-like finish.

An Amazing Discovery Resin and Diamonds

An Amazing Discovery Resin and Diamonds

Meet South African artists  Philippa Green, Ida Elsje, and architect diamantaire Gregory Katz.  Their amazing use of lightly tinted resin set with diamonds is one of the most interesting takes I've seen on resin and gemstones.  The resin enlarges and reflects the gemstones from several angles.  I cannot pick a favorite!

Mail Order Diva!

I have a confession to make I am a mail order addict! Every time I see the Amazon swoosh or the RioGrande (jewelry supplier) boxes I get little butterflies! This week I am all aflutter anticipating new wire for my next project. If Picasso can steal from African masks I feel I have a greater right since I am after all from Africa. So look forward to seeing my African Mask jewelry line. Just finishing up with my Over Dale and Sparkle rings. I should have more images next week.

Intermdiate Resin Class at the Tampa Museum of Art

Saturday was the first day of my intermediate resin class and it was a blast. We created color palettes and made our first 2 pieces of jewelry. Time sure flies when you're having fun. Next week we'll work on finishing the two pieces and start on mold making. My new favorite mold material AM 128 SILICONE RUBBER RTV. It's less costly than the mold materials available at jewelry suppliers and is much stronger!  http://bit.ly/2Pg46lK
