I enjoy working with various types of mediums.
Painting – I enjoy acrylic and water color. I’m not a huge fan of oils, as I do not like the wait time involved for drying. However, I do add medium to extend drying time for acrylics as they dry too fast. LoL, guess I’m hard to please! I enjoy painting on canvas, although I am always exploring other surfaces to paint on!
Drawing – I enjoy a wide range of mediums when it comes to drawing and again, I’m not necessarily drawing on paper! I like charcoal, graphite, pencil, prisma color pencils, water color pencils, pen and ink, india ink with a brush, and chalk pastels. Again, I’m not fan of oil pastels…. wonder why… I’m also not a fan of oil and vinegar on my sub sandwich either!
I also enjoy air brush painting, and am getting into glass etching.
Ceramics/Porcelain – I have worked with porcelain many years ago. I fired my own pieces in my kiln. I was a fan of porcelain doll making and have sold many pieces back in the 90s, many one of a kind creations. I also was a member of the Doll Artisan Guild, I have a new interest in Ceramics. A local studio has opened in my area, Just Kil’n Time Ceramics Studio in Waretown, NJ. I love spending time there creating cool pieces!
I dabble in polymer clay from time to time making little mermaids.
I seem to dabble in everything to be honest! I’m not sure that there is much I haven’t tried! I even have a collection of jewelry strands that I make into bracelets and necklaces!
I like to paint on wine glasses… and would love to learn how to make stained glass creations!
I am a huge fan of fiber arts, and consider myself a well seasoned fiber artist.
Did I mention Scrapbooking?? oh my dear Lord, I am 7 years behind on that!!
I also love macrame’, and am in the process of making some giant dream catchers! (I’ve been in this process for many weeks, so I don’t anticipate the catchers to be done too soon)
I also love to sew! I started out in my 20s making teddy bears. I went on to designing clothing for the dolls I made. I’ve been wanting to make a quilt from my daughter’s baby clothing, but haven’t started that yet, LOL. Among other things, I’ve been making tooth fairy pirate and mermaid dolls! I have all the materials to make Waldorf inspired dolls, but have not started that yet…. maybe this winter?
Ohhh.. let’s face it, I’m just a complete work in progress my entire life. I’m sure there will always be something that is waiting to be finished….
