Pysanky retreat - July catch up

 I have been so busy  reclaiming the studio  got away to a Pysanky retreat - leaned to  color shade eggs - and really love doing it 

Catch up 1 - laser earrings

 Since setting up propane have been reclaiming my Studio. So many things to do - Ive  done  laser chicks and roosters I needed for my July Pysanky retreat 

Next step - fresh propane

 Picked up the propane last night  and installed  the gages and hoses. Checked for leaks (none) turned on the oxy cons and set them .

Sat at the torch  and lit it  POOOF.   Decided I needed to melt a little glass  just to get the feel and made a tiny turtle - (I dont usually do tiny)  I want to make about 25 pairs of  turtle earrings  and 25 pendant size turtles  and some large  turtles .  My list is growing for what I want to get done before next show in June. 

So ready for this weekend - I may need some heaters - I bought a large one that is supposed to do my full 25 x 30 space  so I may have to take the time to install that this weekend

Opening the Studio 2023

 Not that its as warm as I would like it  but  went in the other night and moved around some boxes and things so that I could access my lampworking area so that I could sit down this weekend to torch.  Pulled out old propane tank  as I sort of remember being at the end of it and will pick up a new cylinder to start the year fresh.  Chair is ready, Oxy cons ready, venting ready- 


 Its almost  April and have not done muct to  update the old Blog -  but  times are chaing - more  laser cutting,  more sublimation  cups, more shirts, more glass  etc coming in the next few months which should mean more frequent updates -
