Just thought I would catch up and share with you what I have been up to this week so far. On Monday I held a ceramic aboriginal decorating workshop at Country Love Crafts.
Now, I normally keep my glazed pottery pieces away from this blog and have them on my website, but i am thinking of doing something like this on cardstock or an altered box?

I also managed to finish the mixed media painting I started which I will now put up for sale on my Folksy shop, I am really happy with the way it turned out.
This afternoon I worked on a bisque bauble trying to come up with a simple design for children, using Americana acrylic paint, round sponge dabbers and a product from Decoart called Triple Thick brilliant gloss glaze, this stuff is amazing, one coat and your item will look as if it is kiln glazed. We are expecting a delivery of this acrylic spray from the states in three weeks, I will let you know which suppliers are stocking it then.
I have also taken the plunge with the guitar, (Sacrilege)…..I had a little play on it for 10 minutes and then gave it a hug before removing the scratch plate which amazingly came off without causing any damage, so its now ready to be completely steampunked! I will keep you all updated with its progress!
Finally I made a small video as a little surprise for Lindsay Mason as a way of thanking her for all her support over the past few months. Its only short but highlights some of her most recent and fabulous designs.
