hi gary. i'd like to make powder coating an option for my students in an upcoming assignment. do you have any advice about where to purchase a sampling of colors, techniques for success and/or handouts. i remember that you had worked through trail and error to create a system that works really well for you. i'd appreciate any advice that you can give me. thank you!
Gary Did you get an invitation for the Bracelet Show at Kathleen Sommers?
I hope you can participate.And do you have students you would recommend?
Kathleen is donating a percent of sales to metals dept. .
A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery and offers a permanent stage to the world. We do love gallery shows, but at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members. In addition to our calls there are others you may be interested in.
