Last week was the one and only show I will do this year. I’ve got a blog post on that adventure planned for next week. But in the mean time, suffice it to say that I made enough profit to go on a small shopping spree at my local supplier Hollander Glass. They just happened to be having a sale yesterday!
While at the show, it came to my attention that I didn’t have a lot of earth tone colors. So I bought glass in colors that I’m not naturally drawn too – terra cotta, chestnut brown, khaki and bronze. I splurged on some dichroic glass which may be used in a future pendant class I want to offer. I bought four Bullseye molds and decided I now need to start cataloging the molds I have since I almost bought one that I already own. I always buy a tube or two of noodles or stringers to grow my collection of colors. I also found a new product called Honey Doo Zuper Glue. I was told this is a fantastic glue for layering stacks of glass and the glue burns off clean. In general, I don’t use glue in my pieces, but after having some stringers roll on me recently, I can see how this would be very handy. I bought a small tube to give it a try. A few other odds and ends rounded out my purchase, and I was one happy camper yesterday. Can’t wait to get some time in the studio next week to play with all my new goodies!
