So.... here I go again about white vinegar! So many uses.... they keep growing by the day. (well almost) I found a link on the weekend referring making copper coins clean and all sparkly again. Now this I knew, I can remember doing it when I was a child. But what I did not know was, that this same recipe will tarnish and copper plate metal, what kinds of metal I am not sure... still experimenting. I brought some charm on special at spotlight... bright shiny silver.... (not my favourite, I like old) any-ways... I have tried tarnishing and copper plating these and thus far it seems to be working. I am reasonably impressed.
I seem to be spend all my time in the studio which I commonly refered to as my art cave these days....( so yes this is a good thing)... Right where was I going with this ..before the phone rang. That 's right I have been working on my casting plaster products again... and are finally getting them to a place where I am happy, using a lime wash and transfer techniques. I am loving this effect, I can not wait to try more of my designs.
I have had this image in my mid near on two years and this is the 2nd time I have tried playing...I feel I am still not there yet! But I will keep on keeping on, until I get to a place where I am happy with.
I have had a creative weekend. I have was lucky enough to find a selection of stamps on special and 50% of normal retail price so snapped them up and had a play. I love the new hearts and crosses... can't wait to do some more different designs and colours.
These are the latest images to grace my photo shop files.... With "stranded" one being so popular I would expand this Giraffes journey to unknown lands.....
