A while back I posted about my wolf for a Little Red Riding Hood cane I was working on. Then there was nothing more about it. Well I finished the cane and I just wasn't that happy with it. I figured the best thing to do was to just step away from it for a while. It worked. When i created the pendant I didn't think that Red Riding Hood stood out enough from the background. I decided to go around her and other things in the picture with a needle tool. Then added a touch of paint. The end result has a carved wood look to it. I liked it. For the necklace I made some beads that say " the sweetest tongue has the sharpest tooth". Another pendant says "As you're pretty, so be wise; wolves may lurk in every guise".
I have plans for some more fairy tales. My neice, Erin, has helped me with the sketches that I will be basing the canes on. Stay tuned for those.
First so sorry for the long gap between posts. Geeesh ....Feb was my last post. You'd think I was out solving the problems of the world. But I am back.
Just back from teaching a face cane class in Columbus, Ohio. Thanks so much to my host Jeanette Kandray for making it such a great weekend. Thanks also to all of my super students. I worked them hard the first day but most got finished or near to finished with their canes. I think they did a fantastic job. I can spend up to three weeks on one face cane so getting this much done in a weekend is certainly a job well done.
Here are some pictures from my class. I will be teaching this class again in Aug at the Creative Journey Studios outside of Atlanta. We are close to finalizing a teaching gig in Kansas City in October. Let me know if you are interested in either of these classes and I will get you in touch with the proper people.
We had a great time in Columbus so why don't you join me for the next go-round?
