YIKES!!! Since we last met, there has been a hurricane, foot surgery, the fall show and Thanksgiving. While there has been plenty going on in the studio, I just couldn’t wrap my head around blogging…sorry!!!
Pastels seem to be the rage this year. When presented with the challenge of selecting a range of Pan Pastels colors, my mind shut down. As a substitute, I found a package of 40 half stick soft pastels from Sennelier…beautiful colors and not outrageously expensive.
In the feature photo, I used the pad of my finger to apply various colors to a raw sheet of textured gold Kato clay and than ran the sheet through the pasta machine until smooth. One pleasant surprise, it appears that the binder in the pastels bond with the clay during baking.
