I know this post is a little late. August proved to be quite productive, especially with my ceramic sculptures. I have been pretty busy this month with the graphic design business also.
I have started assisting in the Clay Studio on Friday so I am able to work a little more on my ceramic projects. The first photos I am showing are the ceramic sculptures I have worked on this month. First is these little Witch Hat Incense Burners. I realized after building them that the incense cones just fit in them. So next time I need to build them a little taller. These also still need to be glazed.
Below is a picture of my little totem from last month. This is after the bisque firing.
Next are a few pictures of it after I painted it. We ended up using an acrylic paint called Patio Paint, that is specific for painting ceramics. I really like the way it turned out, although it took me forever to paint it and decide on how I wanted to paint it.
I just love the way this little Big Mouthed Monster came out!!
I loved the Monster so much, I decided to try and make a Big Mouthed Witch. Here is the start of her with the start of her hair.
I found this Crystal Pepsi at Publix. I haven't had one of these since I was a teenager. After drinking it I don't think it really tastes like Pepsi at all.
The boyfriend and I went out to dinner out near the Ft. Pierce Jetty. After dinner we walked along the jetty and I took this picture as the sun was setting.
I had backed the LightSail Kickstarter awhile ago. I finally received my certificate of the centimeter of sail that I purchased. If you look there is a small square on there which is the a centimeter of an actual piece of the material used for the sail. I am so excited to have been able to give a little to continue the exploration of space.
I completed the ArtSnacks Challenge for August. You can read more about that here. I am going to discontinue this subscription after the September box. I have also purchased the Studio Inktober Edition Box and I will be showing a review of that also, but that will be the last one.
I don't think I wrote about finishing the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child book in last month's adventures. I really enjoyed the story and following further into Harry's life with his children and career.
I discovered a new little cartoon this past month. I don't watch many everyday cartoons, but this one kept coming up in my news feeds on my social media platforms. This cartoon is Steven Universe! As it came up I noticed it was about different Crystal Gems, and that kind of sparked my interest. One of my favorite things to collect are crystal gemstones. I got on our Hulu account and noticed that the older seasons were there. So I watched it and fell in love with it. It is such a cute cartoon and shows the love and the dynamics of different types of relationships. I actually cried a few times while watching it.
