Curious Elements: It's a Process
I've spent the past couple of days working on my Curious Elements. I get so excited about the many possibilities of assembling these little works of art. Making them involves several steps: Cutting old wood boards, sanding, painting, plastering, sanding, staining, waxing, AND then begins the assembling of the elements. The whole process of creating the little elements that get attached is a multi-step process entirely separate from the wood boards, so I find that I try and do batches of whatever process I'm currently working on. The past two days I have concentrated on plastering and staining, with a little bit of assemblage.
