I spent the entire day in my studio yesterday, with only a brief respite for a quick but necessary trip to the grocery store. I am loving unemployment.
My day began with the windows. I've never liked the mullions in kit windows, they're too thick and out of scale. Using a cutting wheel in my Dremel I removed most of them.
I don't know if I like it or not, I'll have to think about it.
Then I took the house out of dry fit and prepped it for color by sanding it down and wiping it off.
I tested all the inks from my stash (in large bottles) on a piece of scrap basswood. None of them worked for me, then I remembered I had two bottles of Rit dye left from dying plastic flowers to make succulents for the library roof. I was imagining a dark grayish green, and the peacock green Rit dye was close.
I have to go to the beauty supply store today for more sanding blocks, and run a few errands while I'm out, so I'm not sure how much studio time I'll get today. But...I don't have to go to work!
