Welcome to my mess! I believe most creative people work with their supplies in piles laying around them as they work. Come on, admit it.
“My name is Tari and I am a creative slob.” All chime in “Welcome Tari.”
It’s not like this suddenly happened. It’s been this way most of my life.
I have buttons stacked everywhere in my studio! Cases of finished buttons are stacked in the garage. Buttons are everywere!
I know where most everything is…kinda.
This is what my counter looks like most days. I sit here daily and work amongst bottles of glazes, tools, paint brushes and molds.
My computer is behind me so I can check email and play some tunes while I work.
These are stacks of molds I make for my designs.
I make a prototype of each design, then make a plaster mold.
This helps with consistency of the design and size.
People can be so picky and want the same design to be the same size
when they are calculating button holes
(yes, I am full of “smart sass” comments)!
I am a fan of Duncan glazes. I have every color of their underglazes and many of their other types of glazes, Envision, Courtyard, Gloss and Satin. I should be spokesperson!
It may be going through your head,
“egads, why would she have so many!” Consistency!
Yep, you heard that word earlier. Mixing glazes would be fine if you were not after that same color over and over. But if you are selling a product, your customers kinda want it to look like the picture. Also, you don’t get the true color of the glaze till its been fired.
FYI-It is fired, not baked! You bake cookies not earth clay.
Pet peeve #999.
Question this week is not really a question.
Tell me about your studio or working space.
I love to see other peoples studios and hear how they work.
Leave a comment and you could win….mmm….mmm…some buttons. Not sure which ones, let me dig through the mess and find some.
