We had my kind of cookery lessons
in art class today.
There wasn't an oven or a saucepan in sight.
My teacher has invented a new
technique and has called it
It's probably the only cooking
I've ever enjoyed.
It involves gesso (well duh), water,
paint, bags, onions, noodles,
and a whole lot of
slopping and glooping.
Yes, it looks a bit garish but it will lay almost flat
when it dries and this technique is guaranteed
to cure all sorts of ills, just like chicken soup.
There is already a textured layer of goop
under here and this will add to the texture
Yes, it's texture without texture.
No I haven't gone stark raving mad
(well any more than usual).
It looks really textured but it is in fact
virtually flat and then it's easier to paint on
and I can add texture only where I want it.
See.... really clever huh.
I've finished my bird and just sealed it
It's all shiny from the sealer and hard to get a photo.
There's a ton of mica paint and it glows in the sunlight
just wish I could get the glow in a photo.
My boat is finished too.
Same shine problem.
They are both going into a show soon,
hope they sell.
I am picking up a new pair of glasses tomorrow
so I hope to get around to lots of WOYWWer's
but if I don't it's because of the glasses.
I explained the problem in my last post
here, if you're interested.
If you want to see other desks
around the world today,
go over to
and have a visit.
I'm going to cook up some more soup,
mwa ha ha.
