uh....just read on, I've confused the issue (mebbe that's where theBUSTER gets it)---
continue on ------------------------->Hi "blog-friends"
...Ms. Blue here, coming to you from the humomm's studio!
It's a bit chilly here, we don't usually come here in the winter--Kerries do love
their warm beds.
But our-buddy-down-under, Noah, has issued a challenge to us...
to get our humans involved in something CREaTIVE! This one human is always
involved in something creative.
Well maybe you'll see something you've never seen before.
pssst....the humomm is an art person and
she decided to show you something realllllly important --
that would be
US! the 3 musketeers!
in the snow.
BUT, we will be in WAX!
she works in encaustic ....
which is WaX w/pigment floating in it.
She fires it up with an itty bitty torch
(she's got a really big torch
that she melts metal
with and it also keeps things warm whilst working...
but that's another story for another day).
here are some of the pots of COLORed WaX.
she said I, ME, the Bluezeeee, could not help because the WaX would get into the blue
HAIR and yUck......so anyhow..
she takes panel...that's made of birch faced
plywood and makes it nice and smooth. Then she puts a base of BEE's WaX ---->that's what she calls ME, Ms. Bee!
Bee's Knees, Ms.Beezer!
Sometimes these huMomms are so
Well then, now she's got this piece of wood
with a whole mess
of bee's WaX slopped on it.. and toasted with
the little bitty TORCH.
It's already to paint MORE wax stuff
on it...and it's looking pretty minimal <----that's an art term! then she slops some of the white
WaX encaustic on it,
that's hot and liquid----->
Did I mention it was HOT!
well it is...when it gets cold it gets hard again... so the itty bitty torch is taken out one more time to make it "not hard".
Warms the space up a bit...torch, hot plate, hot WaX...
So the white stuff is
slopped onto the
panel...and heated and...well -- between you and me... it's not exactly what I, ms. Bailey Blue, the Mom of theBUSTER & Ms. Persephone, expected.
I was hoping for something that looked more
like us... PLAYING... maybe in the SNOW????
OK says the humomm... back to work.
I guess these things take a bit of time to do---------->
Now she's scraping and heating and painting some more... mumbling something about "let it snow let it snow let it snow...!
HAH! there it is...ms. Persephone (flapping her mouth at theBUSTER) and me, Ms. Blue trying to keep order....we are The Three Musketeers!
and she got us in WaX! "Kerrys, playing in the SnoW!"
Hope you like our solution to the CHALLENGE...
We would like to Challenge some of our other Blog Buddies, starting with ------------->
THE GOOBETTE (ms.Stella) & Stanley...(that means their girl needs to be done with the thesis! hurry hurry gurlie), Molly & Taffy, ms. Putter and HARRY & Ms. Cassidy, the aireeedle Ms. Faya.
The following information is from Noah's blog...
This is the "how to's of theCHALLENGE.
1. Make something, anything. It doesn't have to be complicated or artsy. Make a list, take an interesting picture, make some one's day, make dinner, make a doodle, make fun of yourself, make a poem, make your bed (OK, that last one is lame).
2. Write a blog about it. With pictures for extra brownie points.
3. Link to this blog and challenge six other bloggers to do the same.Best of Luck ,
