So where the heck have I been for over a week? In agonizing pain thats where! My bottom left wisdom tooth decided it wanted to pop out a bit and get infected, with no job or insurance I waited a week before seeing a dentist. I thought it was just breaking through not infected.. Well I was wrong, so now I'm on horse pill sized antibiotics and (thankfully) vicodin.
So I'm loopy doopy doped up, but I'm not in pain and I've actualy slept through the night the past two nights.
How are the coasters going you ask? Well.. I transfered two of the images so far, the first, well the clay had little wrinkles in it that I didn't see and the image was scratchy looking. The second, one little bubble of a spot didn't touch and there was a blank spot. The second was better than the first.. so thats encouraging. It's a lot easier to transfer smaller images. Today I'll be trying to salvage those two with a different technique... I'm going to reprint the images on plain paper or cardstock, modge podge them down to the messed up coasters and resin cast on top of that. If it works then I'll no longer try the tranfer technique on something so large and save my tranfer paper for pins and pendants and smaller things like that. If it doesn't work.. well then I'll keep trying to perfect the original idea.
Now I need your help with something...
