silver foil

Ah, upon getting out the silver foil sheets & using them tonight on an art project for a friend (one who specifically stated she likes silver) I know recall why it's been on my shelf of supplies for about 8 to 10 years since I laste used it! LOL. Wow. The stuff gets everywhere & has a mind of its own. Plus, I'm not sure I really relate to this medium. For one: the less you touch it the happier it is. Not at all like me, I must say. Secondly, you have to be willing to waste some. you paint the design in glue - apply the sheet of silver foil & then, after it dries, you brush away the wasted extra - and it falls off unusable. Well, I foolishly try to save those remnants while it is stuck to the wet glue: pulling up the layers & wrinkling them. And I constantly touch, pat, play with my medium... I just love touching , pat pat pat, smooth smooth, rub and thus - it is not to the utmost benefit of the foil. If I had a studio, I swear I would love oil paints - play away... but no, they just take forever to dry & have that horrible smell. *sigh* Ah, silver foil my pretty bane.


"I, I always thought that I knew
I'd always have the right to
Be living in the kingdom of the good and true
It’s so long, that now I think I was wrong
And you were laughing along
And now I look a fool for thinking you were on, my side

Is it any wonder I'm tired?
Is it any wonder that I feel uptight?
Is it any wonder I don't know what's right?

Sometimes
It's hard to know where I stand
It's hard to know where I am
Well maybe it's a puzzle I don't understand
But sometimes
I get the feeling that I'm
Stranded in the wrong time
Where love is just a lyric in a children rhyme, a sound bite"


ah, someone can use it though;
this vase is so beautiful - my tease, yes.
