so I am almost done with the Guadalupe! I spent some time at Juli Hulcy’s place yesterday and saw some of her pieces. I noticed that she uses fire polished glass for the background a lot and I think that’s what I will do with my Virgin piece. I was looking for a way to crazy pave with bigger tesserae and that’s it!
the belly is done! I am seriously thinking of not grouting! what a relief! and the only thing missing is the plaster on the arms…I’m hoping to spend some time with Katrina either on the phone or in person for some help with that. I’ve never worked with plaster before!
I used Juli’s saw to cut some hands out for my next piece. It will be the four hands of my family hanging from an adobe style house milagro.
also working on the flames and wings for my hearts…lots of ideas at once! need to get cracking!
and when are we getting together? we need to start our collaborative piece right?!
