In search of supplies
This week has been filled with so many things. I’ve been trying to get a handle on my new job, delivered 6 lamps to a new shop, hubby’s birthday, cat care for our neighbor, and much more. There have also been counter offers on my dad’s house too. Research has commenced in earnest for supplies necessary for the sculptural work I will be creating in Halsey. I connected with a local apiary (bee keeper) to purchase unfiltered beeswax. The wax will be combined with dammar resin for an encaustic treatment over paper. It will provide strength and translucency to the work. Cooking the 2 parts together should prove interesting. I hear it takes about 6 hours for a big batch. No cooking it indoors either! Only outside and with pots designated for that alone. There is always something new to learn!
I really need to sit down and start my layout plans so they can be passed along to the committee. I don’t know if they have to approve it or not. We shall see. I’ve still have yet to receive a contract. It’s coming. Hopefully this means the project won’t have to be installed until mid-October when the weather should be cooler.
More craziness to come! 😀
