Portals Project: day 2

So, I’ve reached a break in the day and thought progress photos were called for. Plus my fingers hurt from wire work!

Here is today’s progression: Finished attaching 16g wire to staples and started stringing 22g across surface.

Tunnel starts…

3 tunnels attached… Now I have to figure out how many total to create and finish the surface wire work.

The smell of hog intestine in an enclosed home really isn’t grabbing me right now. I’ve decided to try a different method of utilizing tracing paper: texture the heck out of it and stain it with coffee grounds. A much nicer smell than salty intestines! Below is the start of my paper testing, pre coffee.

I’ll be pulling the paper out of the coffee grounds and allowing them to dry in our fall sunshine. Fingers will rest until tomorrow!
