A Few More Pretties!

I wanted to show you a few more samples from my fabric dyeing sessions.

Blues and greens.  The colors remind me of sea glass.  All those shades of blue, green and purple are on one piece of fabric.

I also played around with yellows, reds and purples, on two separate pieces of fabric.

I am really looking forward to the new dyeing classes coming up in the Fall!

 

Fabric Dyeing Fun!

I probably dye fabric at least once a week.  It never gets old.  This week I have been playing with some new colors, as well as techniques for multicolored fabric.

I don’t know if I can stand to cut that up!

Look at all the colors in just one yard of fabric!

There is no end to what can be done with dyeing fabric, so I have decided that I am going to start a once-a-month class on fabric dyeing.  It will be great for those that took Fabric Dyeing 101, they will be able to build on their skills and add to their hand dyed fabric collection.  It will also give newbies a chance to get their feet wet (with dye!).

Details for this class will be out when I finalize the new schedule….I am shooting for this to be out mid-August! There are lots of fun classes coming up……Thread Painting, Fall & Christmas Decor, even a class making ornaments with metals!  With that, said I better get off the computer and back into the studio!!

POTTERY PAINTING DATE!

There will be an adult pottery painting class on Friday, June 12th, from 5pm – 7pm.

You will have a choice between several different glass and mug styles, or a small bowl.

The cost is $25 per person and this must be paid ahead of time, unless at the last minute there are available seats.  It is BYOB, and I will supply snacks.

Paint something just in time for Father’s Day.

These sessions are full of laughs and fun, so be sure to book early!

There’s some painting going on….

Painting my signs has led to painting almost anything that I can find.  There just are not enough hours in the day right now!.  I had some fishy frames cut out and primed already so I got to painting them this week.

Fishy Frames

These will have mirrors in them.  I have also cut out some larger octo mirror frames….eeekkkk….can’t wait to get these finished!

Hope you are having a creative week!

Happenings……

Years ago {like maybe 8} I was a sign painting fanatic!  I LOVED it and I am not really sure why I stopped.  We had some scrap wood lying around the house that was the perfect size and I had some new sign ideas in my head, so I’ve become a sign-painting-fanatic again!

Here are just a few that are ready.  I will have a bunch more finished by the end of the week.

Now that the paints are out and I have a paint brush in my hand, nothing is safe…..

In the above picture is a mermaid sign that I started when I had a retail shop space.  I never got to finish it and now have this burning desire to finish it and hang it in my pottery studio.  I also have a bunch of antique house shutters that have been stored away.  They will soon have some fresh paint, a mermaid, an octopus or who knows what, on them!

Speaking of painting…….this Friday is a pottery painting session at the studio, around happy hour, for ladies.  They will get to paint either a mug, wine glass, beer goblet or margarita glass.  It is going to be FUN!
