BAMA, BAMA, BAMA. FLAG said it - you've gone pro on us, and like NT said - what can be said for a piece such as this? Don't know where to start. Nice to be able to say "I knew her when she wasn't famous". Now tell us what inspired you, and how you proceeded to this beautiful finish. How did you finish the edge, and did you put a hanger on it, or is it a table top? Memory is bad - is this for a gallery showing?

Pro? What does that mean? I'm just doin' my thing and want to share with folks. ;-)
I started this piece after I found out that anything submitted for this show HAD to be for sale. The cat I was working on was supposed to be in this, but I didn't want to take the risk of it selling. My husband said "That cat ain't goin' nowhere!!". So I had to start something else quick!!
A few weeks ago we had been to a craft fair in Savannah.
There was an artist there selling her handmade glass bead earrings and necklaces.DH couldn't get over how beautiful they were, so he bought me a set. My design was inspired from the necklace.
Just so happens I had bought the mdf piece from a goodwill store when we lived in NC. It used to be a table top, but didn't have the legs anymore.
So that's how it began.
I just grouted the edges, painted the back and attached my hanging wire. I was in a big hurry yesterday to get it finished and I didn't take any photo's of the side or back, but now wish I had.
I'm going to the gallery today to help get the mailing ready. I'll take some photo's then.

Another Bama super spectacular!!!

Question. How did you grout the sides?? I can never get grout to stick to plain mdf without some tess..

Glad you had a fantastic showing!!!


 o
RE: 'Fluidity'

It's wonderful! Best of luck to you.


 o
RE: 'Fluidity'

Thanks yall!
When I do a mosaic, I never mosaic to the edge, I'll leave about 1/8". When I grout the sides, I kinda scrub it in, and then round it up that 1/8" to create a rounded edge.

RE: 'Fluidity'

Another OH WOW! You picked the perfect name, love the flowing shapes and colors, but the flawless finish really knocked me out. Best of luck with the show!!!

RE: 'Fluidity'

RE: 'Fluidity'

Foxrosefl pretty well covered what I was going to say!! It is a very "fluid" piece & I would think everyone who sees it will want it!! Good Luck!! Jan

RE: 'Fluidity'

Well yall, the show went ok. Not very many people came because of bad weather, but I made some good contacts.
Another gallery owner wants to exhibit my work! And one of the other artist I had met earlier in the week had told a gallery owner in a nearby town about me. She visited my website, liked what she saw and wants me to contact her about showing in her gallery and teaching a class!
Of course this is all good news, but I have got to get busy making some new pieces!
