Good morning Deskers, here’s my worktable today.
So on the left I have my water based enamels, this is a very messy palette for a china painter, I have my own way of working. The hare vases at the back just came out the kiln, they are finished. The other one is ready for it’s first fire but I noticed it has a hairline crack, so sadly it goes in the bin, it’s so annoying when that happens. On the right I have my bottles of lustres, they are very smelly. My brush cleaner and methylated spirits for degreasing china, and luster brushes, each colour has to have a dedicated brush. Those little dishes are to put the lustre in, My bird book is lurking at the back. At the very front I have a contact lens case which has my liquid platinum in it, precious metal lustres are very expensive and easily contaminated so I look after it. I’m hoping to start painting a long tailed tit and a kingfisher on those white vases. Oh and at the very back left, hiding, is my little lacy ceramic pots that I made, now they are glazed.
I have my new sewing machine out on the ‘indoors’ worktable. I had to go on the internet to find out how to thread it, the instruction manual is as clear as mud. Thankfully I found a blog with step by step photo’s. Where would we be without our fellow bloggers? I’m finding this machine very different to my old Singer, but I’m growing to love it. I need to try out the fancy stitches soon. Maybe some cushion pixs for my Creative Sundays post later.
Enjoy your Wednesday, now head over to Stamping Ground to see what everyone is up to.
