Here is the 2nd in the series of 3. This is the sewer pipe I have been saving for a while. It was heavy so I figured I better get it set before doing any more mosaic on it and making it need a crane.

Thanks guys. I realized that I forgot to put the dots of red in the white, so I discovered a new tool for removing tess one at a time. I got my handy paint can opener that they usually give you in the paint dept. with a little pry bar on the end. This thing does wonders at getting in a popping off just one tile. So now my white has red dots. I took out a few white and replaced them with red. Raining here again today so I got wet and had to give up for awhile on #2. I will go work on the finial for #1 at my worktable, then take it in the studio for it's fitting with tile and mirror. LOL

RE: Column #2

Thanks to all of you. I am really not that fast. Today has been a slow day since I had to put down pieces of tarp that I had in the alley so I could sit on my bottom and scoot around and around this thing. I don't lack much and I will eat a bite and go back to it. I want this one done so I can start 'Big Brother or Fat Sister' I will let you all decide. I also have a big urn or pot that broke and I am going to attempt to put it all back together with Gorilla Glue and then mosaic it for the top of the third one. If it doesn't work I will just have to find one for the top. Thanks again for the encouragement. You all are the greatest ego boosters I know.

Hot diggedy dawg!!! I LOVE it, and I LOVE the finial. Y'all, I LOL this morning when FLAG said she might make five of these, and then said Hel_ (y'all know - that place down south) - I might just make a forest of them. Go get 'em, FLAG

RE: Column #2

Leave it to me to make you laugh. I think a forest of colums would be great, no leaves to rake. I imagine that these 3 are all I am putting here for now. I still want one by the pond.

RE: Column #2

Thanks Jane- I love his work and one of the reasons I took Riana's class was to learn to do me a dog and a flamingo and etc. I have the dog sketched out and may do him sometime soon, then Slow showed me the pics of the couple in PV she thinks Cindy is making and made me want to do them. I am having trouble getting the fish fountain from yesterday out of my mind.

RE: Column #2

Ah mmmmmmmmmm - I forgot to tell FLAG not to tell that about Cindy. Oooooooooooh I'm in deep trouble, and I betcha CALAM is too now - ooooooooooo. Well, that's whacha get, KLINGER, for keeping us in the dark and planning a big surprise, doncha know?


 o
RE: Column #2

Well shoot...you should have told me. If she isn't doing them, I will try as soon as you send me the pic. Oh well, I thought you and Janey were just guessing, not telling a secret. She probably won't see this thread anyway.
