Growing on the clay

mold

This head was not finished sculpting yet but when I unwrapped it (months later) there was some fungus or alga growing on the porcelain clay. It looks funny, like marmor. It probably will be all gone after firing.

We talked a whole hour about doll making techniques and could have gone on for hours.

So have fun listening.

altered cardigan

jillok

On www.pinterest.com I found this picture of a Jill Sander sweater. The golden stripe looks like acrylic. Good idea!

I had this black cardigan that was ruined by spilling chloride over it causing red(!) spots. You can still see it in the top part of this picture. My first idea was to use geometric shapes and metallic anthracite. Here you see my final idea: black hand prints. Because of the different materials there is enough difference between black and black. I guess it is washable on a low temperature.
