What I’ve been working on in the studio: Experiments

Shortly before the IPCA Arches conference started in Ohio, Helen Briel posted a challenge to the Facebook population to figure out what tool she used for one of her demonstration pieces. There were a couple of guesses that didn’t quite get it, so she gave a few more hints, and I managed to figure out what it was. Since I knew I wasn’t going to be able to attend her demo, I set out to see what I could do with the tool, knowing full well that I would be unlikely to figure out all the details of how she achieved the wonderful pattern that was on her necklace.

About the same time that this was going on, I had found an iPad app (InkFlow, if you’re curious) that looked promising for keeping track of my notes for this kind of experimentation, so I decided to try using it to capture the experience. This is what I ended up with – let me know what you think!Sculpey Blade Handle Notes - 1
