little bowl experiments-NUMBER 1

hi,here again!

i've started a new bowl and got stuck(the same grammatical problem as below) guess where-of course while painting!i liked the first coat of paint but an idea jumped(has jumped have jumped or simple jumped -i never know-choose the right one...ugh) in my mind and made me quit any movements.i was afraid not to spoil the surface ....so then i've decided to make a mini bowl series to experiment.while the big bowl waits his paint couts a little one is already finished.not following the big ones idea.that's an old (lol)idea.i'll present my little bowls birth cutting out the very first images hehe-they are not needed.

this is the first image-molded over a plastic milk bottle(i can't find the right word).at this stage the rough pulp is still wet.the new idea was to dusk some well dried pulp pieces into for a new look.also learning on this new texture.

when fully dried(a few pieces had to be glued again though)it was covered in dragon skin.

lefted 24 hours to dry then applied a thin layer of acrylic wall paint ..

yes, i failed the painting part i had to change it -not immediately of course -the family needed me lol-

that's its size and new look not varnished yet....

i like the inside paint...somehow the outside one shouldbe nicer if smoother..i've realized though it's a nice texture it is hard to work with.it may be the size of a bowl.i'm sure it will be easier on a big one.

like it or not this is the FINAL result so far-it still needs to be sealed but for this one i wish i would have a perfect mat varnish.still not found.

holiday bracelets

happy holidays for all of you! kellemes unnepeket! sarbatori fericite!

a short message from heart.i'm no good at speeches maybe i should post a poem instead;)--i've been here only for looking around had no time posting.while i've finished the bracelets series.all four are ready and i wanted to share my little achievements.i've already posted them at flickr's that goes quicky and i had very good feedback which made me happy.

this is the second one called "dio" it's not from adio it just means nuts in hungarian.it has this nut like raw surface painted with orange than" washed"with liquid brown pigment.
so i f you like it don't throw away your mask tape roles when finished they are suitable for bracelets(well it depends on your hands and arm size too but they were designed for use over a body lol-it's sound odd ).at the end it was varnished.i've used mat floor varnish -

this is that came after the second the fourth i guess as i'm loosing myself in such of details.it remembers me a joke i've heard yesterday "while to blame the parliament ?he did nothing"-
i should mention that right now they are counting our votes for the new presidential elections.i hope they are not counting like me...
this bracelet follows the earlier "concept"lol-used masking type cutted half,added two layers of paper than added the modeled rough pulp which was then temperate with the dragon skin,painted and varnished.
the last one-i little bit different but we all are a bit like.so this is my fun bracelet entirely pulp the rest you've already know...
there's no group photo but it will be lol

thank you for your visit!
