Arfest Vendor Night!
So we leave Monday for Mecca, AKA Port Townsend, WA! I just love Washington State and Artfest! I thought for fun I'd post photos of work in progress that I am making to sell Vendor Night at Arfest'09. I have been frantically, frenziedly etching and enameling into the wee hours. These are some copper sheets I etched with my drawings. I sawed them up into smaller pieces and then die pressed some of them in my hydraulic press. I then enameled them to make necklaces. I am very excited. They are turning out very nicely indeed. I had experimented with ways of enameling them last year, with sporadic success. But Eureka! I have discovered a new, much better way of making the designs stand out under the transparent enamel! So you Arfesters check me out Friday night!
