Spilling Knowledge

I just uploaded a long video to YouTube. I piled up a bunch of my most used supplies and described them and different techniques I use. The focus is on the acrylic pouring supplies and techniques. There is a sort of time stamp, table of contents in the description.

I created the video in hopes of maybe helping someone but also I thought it would be a great marker to go back to in the future. A bit of a journal entry. I wonder what I will be doing in 5 or 10 years. Will I be using some of the same things, or will everything be different? An art time capsule for me to go back to and re-discover.

New Shout Out – Raku

Around the time I moved into my first house, I bought 2 pieces of art. One was a limited edition, art print by Marcel Mouly The other was a Raku pot that I found on eBay. I did not know that much about it, but I thought it looked cool and would fit in with how I was decorating one of the rooms. I hired a painter during the move process and turned out that he made Raku pottery, though was in a transition period because the pigment he liked to use had been outlawed due to its toxicity. (If I remember right).

I am not sure when I first saw thealchemistspottery website, but there you can find some really nice Raku pieces. Here is a video from his site that shows a bit of the process and some of the work.

This is a seperate post made for one of the pieces.
