Are you participating in holiday shows and boutiques this year? Have you made enough art? Getting stressed out? Here are some ideas to get your inventory beefed up and ready to go! (Click the title to go to the tutorial.)
Made with cut bottles and fused lids. With a little care you can create an amazingly wide variety of boxes and lids. Cut some of the bottles taller to create bathroom storage containers. Try displaying one with cotton balls or swabs so people get the idea.
Sometimes it’s nice to add a little something extra to your float or bottle fusing project, here’s a handy list of product that I’ve used over the years, the suppliers that I purchased them from, and a tutorial or two to get you started.
Like most people who live in snowy climates, spring always makes me think of the beach with longing. Since I actually live in a landlocked state, it’s not like I can just run down to the beach for the afternoon. I can, however, make a fancy starfish dish with a nifty free kiln carving pattern.
Well, we’ve been doing kiln carving patterns together for a long time now, I thought it might be fun to switch it up and make a pattern that is a slightly different shape and can be used in many different ways.
Happy Monday! If you can smile about that, you’ll make it through anything. Today I’m answering questions about mixing compatibilities in terms of bottles and frit, making polishing machines and using a ceramic kiln for glass. These are actual reader questions and answers.
