100 pounds of clay - racks and racks ................................................... PHOTO BLOG

11-14-2007 03:51 AM by Dan'um Style | 11 comments »

Thought it might be fun to share photos of my tiles drying. Then again it might be boring. Well anyways !! Tiles are sitting on the fiber ceiling tiles you buy from Lowes. Bought the damaged ones real real cheap. Ceiling tiles are the best for this. Draws the wetness out of the clay and speeds the drying cycle time. Also have an industrial size box fan blowing 24-7 on them. They’re getting dry extra-quick. Will start a kiln load sooner then estimated.

As mentioned in Marc’s blog … Bought a 1/8 down spiral do some detail work. One thing I didn’t plan for was the paper wants to lift up next to the router bit. My work around is scoring the drawing with ...

Haunted Forest TWO poster printing

10-13-2007 11:03 PM by Dan'um Style | 14 comments »

This is a new technique I wanted to try. Previous projects, I have tried the drawn on technique as well as carbon paper. Thought of using a projector or finding a large format print shop, but searched the internet and found the technique of breaking part a photo into pieces call ”poster printing”. Looked at several and sellected a shareware program “Mr. Poster”. Program has it’s limitations, namely limited to it’s default size settings, ie, number rows and...

Layered a couple photos, grayscaled , rescaled, stretched, deformed, negative and pixelated …. This is a challenge to myself. I have never made a carving this big, nor will I use the exact same methods that I have used in-the-past. Hope to learn a few new tools and teach myself a few new tricks via ...
