''while I'm waiting to get back to my head?''

We all know what you mean but I can only imagine what a brand new newbie would wonder . . . hahaha, OMG, us mosaicers are a breed apart.

RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Did you bring all 5 piggies home in your suitcase?! They look fat and heavy and oh sooooo cute! Love your ideas for them, anything blue and swirly makes me happy.

RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

He is wonderful!!! I was at my Garden Show this last weekend and thought, I'd like to do some more pigs!!!
LOVE the tails you are making, VERY CUTE!!!


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Oh,I live on the border,we drive across all the time...Not sure about grout on this one ??I'm thinking a lavender purple,just a little lighter than the irid glass or maybe a dark purple?


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Hey, Purplelion Pig Whip could be a name for a fancy desert! She's awfully cute...I think she needs a blingy tiara, LOL!


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Oh, CRACK - how cute is THAT? Love the beads for the tail and love the color combo - very creative - I wouldn't have thought of the beaded tail. FIVE - hmmmm - I feel a sale item in the making - you going to an event w/these? FIVE???? Or do you have places in the gardens for them - gifts??? F.I.V.E.


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

I love the combination of colors you're using. That would be so cute to see five pigs all colorful sitting together.


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Hopefully a sale someday LOL!!!Couldn't pass up the price and thought pigs might be good sellers.


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Oh, I want her so bad! She's wonderful! Oh, the colors! The Tail! She's PERFECT! How fun! I love the idea of putting a group of them together. I'm also interested to see how you manage the ears. I can hardly wait to see when she's done. She will be wonderful! More pictures, please!

OMG!! Those china pigs are AWESOME!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE those!!!


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Oh, I remember these, CRACK. You have a thing about pigs as I do nichos. I'll bet you come home from PV w/inspiration to "go native". Oh, I forgot - you live right there near, and already KNOW about the wonderful Mexican art.


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Whooooooooooooo eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Those are cute piggies. I love their curly bead tails.


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Anybody know how to change the post title without starting a new one?


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Oh, your pigs are so great! I love them all, but am in love with the new one you're working on. I looked at pigs at our flea market, but didn't find anything as wonderful as those. You must have a ball seeing the personalities they develop as they're coming together. Yikes! It takes that much to mail them?


 o
Crack you mean like this?

Or the whole thread???
Those pigs are just so darn cute and really neat looking at the same time. PJ

Purplelious Pig WIP

RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

This is darling!
Love the irid glass... and the aqua swirls! So cute! I'm not that experienced... but I like your idea of charcoal grout... seems like it will draw everything together.


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

OH YES!!! Charcoal grout!!! Please grout soon!!!lol! What Eye Candy!


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Sou--eeee! What a cute family of pigs. I love the little chick on the one pig. Very wonderful work.

Annie,

Please tell how you do all those curlys??? They are so cool and when I tried myself they never turn out like yours.

Do you draw the lines and then mosaic?? And if you draw the lines, how the heck can you make them so perfect???

Thanks, I love all those piggies and would love to see them all together. Hope you have fun in Mexico


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Veeeerrry cute pigs!


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Wow! Those are just wonderful!
I haven't been to Mexico in years, I may need to make a trip.
I'm kinda cheesy, so the color pink popped into my mind for gout.
Have a wonderful trip!

RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Mermaid i just take a piece of chalk and start switling,nothing in mind when I start..worked on the other one all weekend,it's now checkered black and white also,waoitn on glass for the rest and purple grout for the other one,in between babysitting teenagers all week!


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

THNKS Annie, I just love all of those pigs. Can't wait to see the one you are working on. I was reading about swirls and they were saying you had to make sure your curlycues were perfectly spaced for it to turn out right, and you have done that, your's look great. I was thinking of getting out my old compass or tracing because my brain does NOT computer "perfectly spaced" LOL


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

Oh, Ann! You've started another couple of your adorable pigs! I love the hearts on the one's rear. Each one of your pieces is so unique and special. What an artist you are. Keep posting those pics. I sure love them.


 o
RE: 'Purplelion Pig' Whip

BEAUTIFUL, CRACK. Your work is sooooooo persnickety and perfect. Especially love the striped feet on purple swirly. Anxious to see you start on your Riana planter.
