These are the first few samples which I have done of patination working with applying vinegar, sea salts and table salt to metal, placing it into a mixture or painting it on as well as placing metal into salt and vinegar walkers crisps. Which has left my metal with blue colouring, all of these samples where created through cold patination, up next I’m going to look into applying heat to metal in changing the colour of the metal. I’m looking into creating more of a softer colour or even a red colour to the metal.

Finally went back to uni this afternoon after spending some much needed bonding time with my niece, it was weird to be back and working! Cutting shapes out in jewellery to get under way of sampling and techniques, I’m looking into the technique of patination, just done a few samples there so my hands have being left smelling of vinegar, something that I’m going to have to get used to. I’ll be seeing what there look like in the next 24 hours and will keep you updated. Ceramics tomorrow, MOULD MAKING! Looking forward to getting messy.
Here’s just a few images of drawings which I have done last week and of course a photo of my beautiful niece just a few minutes old.

Me and crochet are slowly becoming new best friends as you can see, it’s certainly a good job that I only want to do such simple cord shapes instead of going all high tech, I wouldn’t have a chance in hell. Now that I finally learnt how to do it, up next was crocheting with wire, which with the finished result I was happy with! I’ve worked back into the crochet adding beading too as well as adding in theads.
Up next is to befriend knitting over the weekend, which will be a challenge. So far this week has being made up of a lot of planning into what materials I want to work with which seems to be a never ending list! I’m trying to work balanced out in both three areas of textiles, jewellery and ceramics this time!
As well ive being looking into influential artists to write about for my report, I’m defiantly stuck for choice and will keep you updated with who I finally manage to choose! It’s also helped me this week into looking into different artists who work with wire and make it appear effortless beautiful, so focusing it on one of them may be on the cards.
Here's a sneaky look into what's being keeping me busy so far this week.

Her work is worth looking at on her website of - http://www.sarahmorpeth.com/
So far I’ve only drew along to six songs, which was cracking. Tomorrow is going to be filled up of completing mood boards. And then‘connections’ drawing three of each people, object and places. I’ll be uploading some photos in the next couple of days. Although god help me drawing people, defiantly going for the continuous line appearance, that way there meant to be naïve. Wish me luck….
