It was a polymer clay and enameling day. VERY good and refreshing for my recent artists' block.
What do YOU do when/if you get an artists' block? Do you do something completely different, or put everything away for a while? I found that I was obsessing over the camera, over looking at hundreds of pictures of jewelry, and watching jewelry technique videos on Youtube, and nothing was getting created.
So I took out my polymer clay, and started to mold shapes. That got me into thinking about color combinations, and I played with those along with pigments and inks.
Then, I got out the enamel. I had a few pieces of copper ready to work on, so I started layering on the color and a little sgraffito and started up the torch.
That last picture shows my muse. I got her from a great Etsy sculptor named Daniel. She sits on my desk whenever I'm working on something. She reminds me of how GOOD it feels to create. Plus I like to dance like her ;) Hah!
Hope you had a great weekend,
