Working through it!

Well, with a little vacation from the clay, some encouragement from my husband, and a new texturing tool (very low-grit-- 36-- sandpaper of the "plastic-coated" type), I'm working through the problem I wrote about last time. It's going to take a few more steps to see how the final product looks, and I'm still not positive that it's as good as it could possibly be... but I hate to keep the poor customer waiting forever, and I need to get this thing off my "to do" list!

Once I have this thing thoroughly under control and get started on a few other orders, I can finally devote a little time to some other things I've been wanting to try but "couldn't". (I've felt that-- even though I was at the point that I didn't know what to do next on that project-- I couldn't allow myself to work on anything else, clay-wise, until it was crossed off my list. (sigh))

In a non-clay-related note, my youngest sister graduates from high school tomorrow night! Wow. I still can't believe that my ten-years-younger sister is eighteen!! Don't even want to think about what that reveals about my own age... ;o)

Kudos to you for trying to work thru your creative block. That's tough when it's just a pleasure project...but especially hair-pulling when it's "work". (I used to design web graphics back in the day...and the paid-for projects almost always squished my muse.)
Best wishes for a quick and painless completed project. ;)
