modeling foam (mousse)

This is a product purchased at Michaels, it comes in a 10.58 oz or 300g bucket. It stays pliable till it is left out in the air to dry. Takes 48 hours for it to dry completely. Then they suggest you paint. In the first one lower picture, I used it over a picture I had .. a canvas that had already been painted and was waiting to be recycled.

I applied the product it is like a lazy dough, it pulls apart, stretches and works like a well chawed piece of gum. I did not use glue or other medium to stick it to the canvas. I simply applied it.. I used Tim Holtz distress spray stain, and Distress oxide sprays to colour and shade. While it was still drying. Once it was really dry I applied other colours for shading or to bring out parts of the “expression”

It was easy to work with and easy to clean up after. the one tub, was sufficient for me to do two canvas pieces. I still havce enough to do a mini piece or add to?

Oh yes, I also used it to reshape the look of a doll the size of a Barbie, I added ears, hair, and clothes on another.

this is work in progress, you can see I’ve layered and added with the rest of the product I could make her a mermaid tail, or change her head features to produce of alien..

What better time to explore product and items in our workshops,studios, etc. I have managed to clear our a lot of product that I know I will no longer use. Now waiting for the donation boxes to reopen.

Thank you to those who expressed an interested in this product. I hope you are able to find it when the stores reopen. It was a recent purchase, likely later March early April.

It is not apoxie sculpt. This is my preferred medium. I repair things with apoxie and still have the repaired items in use today. =^_^=

Waves to everyone.. shares a big smile.. and warm hug.

Good Morning, Bom dia!

The day is young and really not decided on what it is going to do.  The forecast says rain and lots of it.  In our area, there has been a lot of flooding already, this newest bit of rain could be a real disaster for many at risk communities.  My prayers go out to all of you at this time.

Across the river on the Quebec side, the military has been brought in to help with the filling of sandbags and volunteers from all around are coming around donating their time.  It is in such times that we see how community pulls together despite any differences at other times.  Oyashikiri.

What you see above is my trying out a new product, seeing what it can do with a variety of molds or embossing/texture plates.  The product used (coloured) is by Finnabair, called Icing paste (Prima marketing),  It is through trial and error that I will find how it will work with my particular style of “working”.  The challenge and opportunity of discovery.  I love it.

PL calendar day 26       Put your whole heart into whatever you do, no matter when or where you are.

Don’t try to cut corners or be careless about things.  Be fully responsible, completing whatever you set out to do.

Happy start to another day!  It is Thursday, the week has flown by.  Already we are celebrating the 11th of the month.  Ancestors Day.

PL calendar day 11

Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you.  Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us.  Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes.

Nothing can take the place of good friends, they make you smile, save your bxtt when you think there is no end in sight and give comfort just in being who they are.  I feel humbled to have such amazing friends.

When we pray for our ancestors and the people in our lives who contribute in our daily living, genuinely infuse each moment, with gratitude, giving thanks with all the makoto you can muster.

pomegranate paintOctober has arrived… Outubro 1… Bom dia

Yesterday I went in search of a colour of paint that would mix well with what I had to enhance the suggestion of blood.  Dried blood.  Luckily where I shop there is always someone to help and with my cohort  Little Piglet, we spent a happy hour browsing and shopping.  I know it is not often someone comes in looking for blood, but Isabelle, at Scrap En Mass (Alfred, Ontario) was up to the task.  When you shop with a goal in mind, you are more easily able to describe what you want.

The ambience of the place is also a factor, the display of merchandise, the overall sense of creativity and fun that is generated by other customers.  The time spent searching out, then playing with the items later, is always an interlude, that passes quickly, it is refreshing.

howling time

fright nite b

LOL the howling month approaches.  Love end of September, and all of October.  Witches, goblins, spiders and bright vivid shades of oranges, blood reds and black. It is time to dig out the dies, stencils and paints. Yahoooo where is the glue.

OK so not everyone is enthusiastic and carries on like I do.  But a roll of big bright ribbon with pumpkins and black cats… wow what a blast. here they are ready to be part of my stash

I had so much fun, just finding the right shadows to go with the ribbons.

Having fun is what life is all about.  Happiness is… living each moment to the fullest.  At one time I would have cropped out or photo shopped out shadows etc.  Now I find that they are part of the moment, so I leave them in.

canvas torn

I found a picture of some torn canvas that I had happily ripped into shreds for a project.  I think I still have some, so will go in search of what is left.  I feel a new project coming on.. inspiration is rounding the corner.  Time to rock and roll!!!!

Have a good day my friends.
