I'm doing a new January 30 day challenge! Follow along on Instagram @christyshermanart
or on Facebook at christy.j.sherman
if you'd like to see my progress and cheer me on. ;)
My first piece for January is this little Carolina Wren I sculpted in my own soldered brass bezel.
Goals: Get better with soldering by making more pieces. Get better/faster with designing in metal, stones and clay. Get used to sculpting animals that can be bezel set - consistent fairly shallow height, especially at the edges, and smaller than I usually go.
Rules: which are Guidelines because rules are meant to be broken ;)
- Make at least 10 pieces in January that have at least one bezel (the metal piece surrounding the clay or stone). Several of them should combine stones, metal, my own sculpted work, and possibly resin or other mixed media.
- Post progress every day. That may not mean being in the studio every day since real life often gets in the way. If I make a lot of progress over a weekend, I might spread out the posts over a few days when things get busy.
- Finish things. That means I can use existing molds of animals I made before, or empty bezels that I've already made or bought, as long as I'm learning or practicing something with every project.
- Have fun and experiment! Failure is ok.
