Oh boy time is really starting to just fly by now and I haven’t managed to do very much over the last week, I’ve only finished one more mosaic and I’ve attempted to carve into polystyrene to make shapes , that’s much harder that it seems ! Have you tried cleaning up after digging into and slicing polystyrene, its like water , its gets everywhere lol I’ve given this small piece one coat of a concrete mix but not sure i’m using the right product so i’ll leave it alone for a while, Im still waiting to get into the sculptural workshop which should be in a week or so, we’ve had school holidays here and my new teacher has been flat out so im patiently waiting waiting 🙂
So this is the mosaic and yes its another flower, im kind of stuck on them at the moment and I think that’s maybe because were supposed to be in spring and we’ve had nothing but torrential rains and huge winds.! Talk about bad hair days all round 🙂
This poly piece started out about triple the size 🙂 I don’t have a hot wire cutter (yet) so I was using a very sharp knife but kept breaking bits off. I was thinking about turning it into a candle holder with glass and beads, small Christmas presents to give out, I think I might wait to mosaic it until after my workshop mainly to make sure i’m using the right products, i’d hate to mosaic it and have it all fall apart, its a big wonky but you get the idea.
This Friday i’m off to my sisters for the weekend, she’s been wanting to learn mosaics so were taking the whole weekend to play and im really looking forward to getting away and having a laugh, some wine a good chat, oh and hopefully a lot of mosaicing 🙂
What have you all been up to and where ever you are I hope your having better weather than us aussies down under xoxo
