I just saw your note. I am sorry for not seeing it before. I didn't even know you could leave comments. I have seen your work for years on the net, although I have never seen it in real life. It looks great! I have not spoken to my brother in 18 years. Wesley is a great artist, I wish I could get to know him better, he lives far away. Good luck with the work. Thanks, Tony
As I am not much of a glazer, and something of a control freak, I frequently work with Original Milk Paint, which you can use on bisque, high fire, your furniture or your barn.
It's a milk based, non toxic paint pigment, mixed with water and offers an almost slip like surfacein rich subdued colors. It was frequently used by Pennsylvania Dutch and Early American furniture makers.
I buy the Milk Paint directly from Original Milk Paint.: http://www.milkpaint.com/ Buy their sample kit which allows you a selection of ten colors and use it like watercolor.
If you do buy it and have any questions, let me know.
Thank you, Amber! Though I will respectfully disagree....mine's but a poor copy of nature's original......and life is always more beautiful than sterility......but the non-living universe is is still gloriously beautiful and incomprehensible to me.
Beautiful and original series, Amber. I enjoyed viewing it. As if my best enigmatic nightmares could be rendered tangible and beautiful......with a touch of the ironic and funny added for a memorable and pleasant flavor......
Welcome to crafthaus, the network for craft artists, and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us !
Please feel free to look around, meet friends, and start adding your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussion forums that are posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in. Crafthaus is a participatory sport ! The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.
Please note that crafthaus is both a fully edited and a member-financed website, meaning that a small annual fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here. You will find all the necessary information on how to go about this in the FAQs section of the site. Your membership fee is due on or before November 15, 2010 and is payable through paypal (preferred,) US check or credit card.
ALL images sent to the website editor will be vetted to assure some measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the images have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light, and from the many images received daily, we try to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect ! If your photos do not get posted they are just not as good as they need to be. Yes, it's really that simple. Just reshoot and resubmit ! No harm done.
Finally, if there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via firstname.lastname@example.org anytime. I will do my best to be of help. I really hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.
