Meet Sydney

Sydney was abandoned outside Petsmart.

Sydney now lives with us.

Please meet Sydney's toes.

Japanese Crackle

Foil and inks, along with my new japanese letter stamp
I placed it on white clay which you can see thru the crackling, perhaps black next time?

Fun with Resin

aka How Lisa Cannot Follow Rules

1) Wear gloves when using resin.
Nonsense I can do this without getting it on my hands.
Oh crap I have spilled the resin.
Oh dear I am having issues scraping it off surface.
Oh dammit now it's all over the outsides of the cups.

2) Blow on resin to remove bubbles.
Peeshaw, people use heat guns too with fine results.
Oh dear if you get that too close it blows the resin quite off the piece.

3) Resin somehow hardened correctly.
I think.
Although I'm quite sure I have resin cancer from above issues (please let me note also I didn't wear mask, as I am SuperGirl).

4) Sane enough to elevate pieces as they dried so they wouldn't stick to surface.
Oh but now there are drips underneath I should get rid of.

5) I shall dremel them off!
And look it's all over me and the floor now.
Perhaps we should reconsider doing this outside ... and with a mask.

So after both inhaling resin fumes and dust and as a bonus soaking resin into my skin, I present first resin experiments!

My friend's dog Lucie. Lucie is giant troublemaker and I adore her, so I thought I'd make a magnet especially for her. I'm having some issues with the clay curling up though, I may need to make it a bit thicker. Lucie also fancies cheese, so if I redo to correct the curling problem I think I shall have to add some of that too.

My saving grace

My little girl Zoe, who has been so comforting for me this past week. She's just such a sweet and sensitive girl. Her and Atticus really grew up together, they are only about 6 months apart. I'm ever so grateful for her in my life and just wanted to give my sweets her time to shine.

Goodbye My Love

My Atticus passed away suddenly on Monday. My heart is so broken I don't think it can heal. I love you my little boy and I hope you are terrorizing other kitties and playing with lots of laser pointers.
