We now return to our regularly scheduled program

So, yes, I've been missing. It simply comes down to that I didn't have anything to show. Natalie has been keeping me very busy and I've been working on stuff but nothing show-worthy.

Until now...

Monday was my Pandora's Meeting. Unfortunately we were missing three of our favorite people but Alisan and I met, and did some fun stuff with UTEE and Lutrador.

First we painted our Lutrador and let it dry. We did one where we wetted the Lutrador and painted and one we left dry.

After one was dry we used a melting tool to burn holes and what not.
This is my piece. Very random.
This is Alisan's. She signed hers. Neat tool. It has many different points and melted the Lutrador like butter. (Feel free to giggle at the SNL reference.)

We also took a piece of velvet, painted it with Gesso, and then put on several layers of UTEE. After the last coating we applied a stamp. Once it dried we used Lumiere to accent the design. The pink one is mine. The glare from the flash is a little harsh but you'll have to see it in person.

This is Alisan's. We used gold UTEE as her last layer and we should have used more. The Lumiere really brought out the design.
Fun, fun.

Looks cool!~ So sorry I had to miss (again)... I can't wait to be back with the Pandoras once my life calms down a bit!

Who thinks of this stuff to do? Very interesting technique.
