Just as a watched pot never boils, neither does a hot kiln cool down. I have removed hot items from my kiln over the years toooooo mannnny times! My fingers have lived to tell the tale, LOL. So, now that it is not a rush to get orders out of the kiln, I let it cool completely. A luxury I enjoy.
The grassy bits for my garden mosaic bench are finally cut out and ready to paint.
Now comes the fun, time-consuming, and patience needed time. I get to first play around with composition of all the mosaic flower pieces I have so far painted. Once I have them forming the picture I have seen in my mind for so long, I will take a picture of the placement. Thank goodness for digital photography! It has made many processes easier for me, especially considering I don’t have a photogenic recall. I will then get them slowly get to work placing them permanently on the adhesive and adding all the colored bits and pieces of tile that I have a ball breaking to fill in all the open spaces.
Who knows if it will finally form the complete picture I was working towards. I still can’t wait……………. Cyn
