Eternal Flowers

Some more resin, this time with a pendant I made specifically foe all my black tops with colourful flowers (I’m a sucker for the Spanish label “Desigual”). I still need to wire wrap it because a simple hook doesn’t seem fitting.

Some flowers react with the resin and suddenly you have a totally different colour. Here on the left is a violet, only that now it’s a yellowlet (please, nobody explain to me how to spell “yellow”, will you?). Same with the erica. The violas are holding up their colours well. I’m going to dry a whole bunch of them.

Next one is a leaping unicorn. This took me several tries because for some reason the Piñata magenta (a stock brand for resin) kept reacting with the blue and always turned a very dark violet and I needed to get a different pink from the company that also produces my resin.

This is one of two unfinished earrings to go with the unicorn. When I cast these bigger pieces and cut them into shape there are often interesting bits and pieces that get turned into earrings.

The final piece is unfinished yet and more of an experiment. I used one of the burl pieces to create a silicone mould. I cast some blue resin and then put it into one of my larger moulds and added the white, only that it’s too much white here, again hiding the burl structure. Currently my idea is to print a bird silhouette and add it, because it does have a sky-feeling to it.

BTW, I totally offer to sell/create piece for the FtB defence fund if anybody’s interested.

    I’m certainly not going to criticise your English, you have a good enough grasp of it to play with it in the ways someone brought up speaking it might. I would be extremely surprised if any one ‘correcting’ you had that good a grasp of German.

    I am surprised that the violas kept their colour so well while the violet didn’t, being cousins and all.

    If the white in the last one was some sort of rock colour it could make a wonderful underwater grotto.

    Thank you for showing us these, I find what you do iteresting whther I say anything or not.

    Oh for fucks sake, ‘interesting whether’

    I really do need to get a seperate key board, the keys on this laptop are simply not reliable and when I’m a bit drugged up I don’t notice I’ve fucked up far too often.

    I love the touch of pink in the unicorn and the violas are very pretty, but the blue and white square at the end is my favourite. I hope you let us see it after you add on the bird.

    The unicorn is the best. I’d love to see what shade of dark violet you were getting.
    That last one is, as you say, definitely a sky. A bird would be perfect.
    As for the main topic, how to spell yellow: F-U-C-K-space-O-F-F. Did I get that right? ;)
