Bursting with Fresh Ideas

Finally, got around to using my screen printing equipment again. The bulb blew in the exposing lamp in the middle of an exposure and was really annoyed as it spoiled the project! Since then, it has just sat in the studio. But new year, fresh ideas and raring to go! I am trying out some new ideas for a trade show. The photo above shows the screen under the exposing lamp. and below is the exposed screen after being cleaned.
I'm really pleased with the outcome, considering I'm a newbie to screen printing. I love the deer scene and this will be used to make coasters and freestanding piece. Below shows the enamel designs on glass.
I have now made some more items and now waiting to add a splash of colour to the clear glass and will be firing these later. Will be posting photos of the finished pieces soon

New Year - Fresh Start

Happy New Year! A little late I know, but have time to breath now. The last few months have been so busy, I haven't had a chance to update my blog. I'm hoping I will be able to keep on track this year!
I have to say, I am using Facebook more and more these days, simply because it's short and sweet! You do not have to spend so long thinking about what to write. Then there is twitter too - so much internet marketing!! It certainly keeps me on my toes.
January is the Spring Trade Show event in Glasgow. I am now working on new products to launch at the show and making some stock. I have also received some trade orders already - and it's only the first week of January!
