I'm hoping this will be as interesting to other conference goers as it is to me-- I've started a Flick group  here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/snag2010pinswap/  for everyone to post either process shots or complete groupings of their Swap Pins for this year's conference. Hopefully it will be a venue for those who want to build some buzz or simply want a way to share in the next three weeks. If you don't already have a Flickr account, it's free and very user friendly.

And as for my little nuggets, I've finally gotten to my favorite part--

 

 

After a lengthy (and frigid) spray painting session in my garage, everyone now has their first layer of paint. The little odds and ends that were stuck in them start to look more interesting at this point. They start to have some character. Especially en masse where little conversations begin.

I knew the epoxy resin layering was going to pose some challenges with these. Having bitten off far too much this time--80 little beasts--I've come up with some assembly line tweaks to help things go smoothly.

 

 

The solution was to create a foam "wall." Each nugget drips on the pieces below in a communal basting process that looks something like a microbial bacchanalia.

Still, only half can take a turn on the wall while the others wait. But it means that I can paint details on one group while the others sit and marinate.

 

See you in three weeks--
Jillian Moore

I want that one!

I wonder what your going to make out of all the drippings on the table...
They all build up in an aluminum roasting pan. I've been trying to get things to drip on panels now so I can do some "2-d" things as well.

I've thought about making a giant beast that I could cram all of the junk inside like a mobile art landfill though.
I just can't get down with achromatic/monochromatic. Hopefully I'll have something that suits the occasion regardless.
