Something that might be helpful with small projects…
I sometimes have more than one project going at a time and because my studio space is SO small, I’ve been using these kids placemats, which are really cheap and ugly, to keep each things organized. They are rigid enough that I can move the mats around easily without disrupting any stuff on them, but are also flexible enough so any small bits can be dumped into the trash by just taco’ing the tray. As I finish one project, I can stow the tray away vertically and out of the way. Don’t have to care if paint or glue gets on them and keeps a mess off my desk. Great for doing glue work or painting things. They come 4 to a package on Amazon.
And, on another note, made my second sale to a newly opened small florist/gift shop in our town. Depending on how well they sell, I’m sure she will order more of different designs. These small pins are inspired by the old-fashioned candy conversation hearts that show up around Valentines Day. Used paint pens and resin on PG Maple ply.
The owners husband also so happens to own the newest dispensary in town, so she asked what I could do to show her husband what he might like for his new section of gifts and doodads for potheads.
So, hopefully I can make yet another sale there. Sure not in it for the money, but this is amazingly fun.
