Raspberry Bowl?

I absent mindedly made this little bowl last night by rolling lots of little balls and sticking them to a can of gingerale and then poking them in the middle with an oven thermometer spike to turn them into miniature donuts, and then cooked the whole thing. When it cooled down I pulled out the can and painted what was left, first with dark purple and then dry brushed in cyan and white. It’s nothing particularly impressive but I think it would make a fun craft project to do with Nefarious tomorrow since it’s a school holiday.


Oh yeah, and I wouldn’t recommend going to see The Wolfman. It’s got kind of a silly, campy ode to Lon Chaney going on, but I had the distinct impression that as silly as the movie was, it was taking itself quite seriously, resulting in being somewhat awkward, a la some hipster doing his best to be ironic but crossing the line into “going full retard” (sorry, I know that’s not PC and I apologize). Too bad, I really wanted to like this movie, but it was not meant to be.

    Nope, it’s not. It’s not really a raspberry bowl, I just thought that would look nice for the photo. Right now it’s got a bunch of toys in it.

    so lovely! I find that some of the most interesting things come out when the “mind is absent”.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
