I had absolutely no plans on making a video this week but on Friday night I had a urge to make some aboriginal wall art and thought I may as well film it at the same time.
I decided to use chunky unglazed earthenware tiles as a substrate, these can double up as either a coaster or an earthenware canvas.

I have used Americana Acrylic paint and Adirondack Alcohol Inks for these pieces and finally sealed them with Americana Matte sealer for a durable waterproof finish.
Before the Video a quick catch up on the week, I have done a little more work on the altered guitar. I first sanded it, added a few rivets and applied a coat of Lamp Black Acrylic paint mixed with Decoart's paint adhesion medium to make sure it sticks and will not in any way scratch off.
I have also been sent some Ranger goodies to use in an upcoming magazine article for Crafts Beautiful and a few other projects, now at last I have more than 5 colours of Distress Ink..yippee!
And finally I spent the day yesterday running a workshop on Silver Clay Fingerprint Jewellery, here are some examples.
Right time for the video, have a great week.
