In the evening I taught Tea & Ephemera, this was a new class for me, so there are always so many things I learn the first time through. I had originally proposed it as a 6 hour class but gave the option of a 3 hour class and that is what got picked.
Well, there is no way to cover everything I hoped to cover in 3 hours, when paint needs to dry and there are so many techniques I wanted to demo. One thing we hadn’t counted on was blowing fuses from too many blow dryers, seems like 2 blow dryers are the limit. Or how much matte medium a class of 25 will go through, luckily Melly Testa had some in her room that she lent us when my supply ran out.
Normally I spend lots of time going around to visit people individually, but in 3 hours there was barely time for proper demos.
Last night I came home at 11:30 and painted enough fabric with a wash of color for everyone in Sunday’s Tea & Ephemera class. That way they can skip the first step of the process and we’ll have more time for demos and trying out the various products and techniques.
