RIK PIERCE WORKSHOP day 1

Well, the workshop was even more amazing than I was expecting and incredible! I have a ton of photos to share and information about paper clay!!! <-----------I LOVE PAPER CLAY!!!! You can do the most amazing things with it!!!
  Day 1 consisted of looking at all of our kit parts and painting the window and door jams and the fireplace/oven. We had a choice of having the oven with an opening beneath it for wood or above the oven for a warming shelf. I chose the upper.
 The fireplace was made out of resin from an original sculpt that Rik made. It was primed grey and we used burnt umber,iron oxide,Hippo grey and orange to randomly paint the brick with light washes. Paints were Delta acrylics.
 Much more to come!!!

PLAYING WITH PAPER!

I have been having the best time making some utensil holders and cannisters for the kitchen. Ever since I saw these items in Mercedes Shabby house and Sylvia's creations I wanted one so bad!!! I managed to make a few. Years ago my Mother and I shared a space in an Antique co-op. The woman who had a space next to us was married to a French man and went to Paris all of the time. She always brought back enameled  cannisters,salt boxes and utensil holders.........I loved them!!! Now, I finally have one in miniature!!! It comes at a perfect time to figure out how to make these because I am joining in on my first group swap and the theme is for the "kitchen". (Hopefully there isn't anyone that is participating reading this.....I would hate to ruin the surprise.)  Now, I only have about 11 more to make!!! I should be a pro by the time I have finished! LOL
Tomorrow is the first day of my Rik Pierce workshop!!!!! I am very excited!!!
Have a great weekend!!
