Today, I went to my second glass fusing class, and I learned about the science behind it. Who know science could be so beautiful?
Today, I started a 4-week long class on fusing class. It’s an art form I’ve wanted to experiment with for sometime, and today I took the first step: cutting and firing glass. Who knew how much science went into art?!
A year ago, I saw a fun video on how to make a dandelion paperweight out of resin. At the time, I didn’t have a paperweight mold, and I couldn’t find a dandelion, so I made many other pieces of resin jewelry. This year, I found a dandelion and a mold. Today, I made what I set out to create a year ago.
Today, I continued a project I started and learned last year: resin jewelry. Today, I learned that resin/catalyst doesn’t mix well with blue and purple flowers; they are now white. Tomorrow, I re-learn and re-mix.
I’ve had a bag of pebbles from a project I did awhile ago, but I couldn’t decide what to do with them. I also had some IKEA mirrors from a design hack a few years ago. Today, I decided to blend the two into mirror pebble art. The result: a new hobby.
Today, we went to a terrarium bar to make our own terrariums. I think I found another new addiction. After we went, spoke to my parents about the experience, and I discovered my grandma had a similar love. Could it be genetics? Regardless, I can’t wait to make more!
…and today, I made seashell art for my niece. I was excited to use my new Dremmel drill. I am even more excited to make windchimes and more!
Today, my microwave kiln arrived. I’m excited to try fusing glass in my miniature kiln. Onward to new explorations!
After working diligently on my re-purposed dresser, I finished. I can’t wait to bring it into our house for a new look!
