Illuminares 2

Apologies again to the photographers I'm not crediting.

Illuminares 2010

No posts all this past week because I was volunteering for the Illuminares Lantern Procession put on by Public Dreams Society. I made the blue building on the right, in the bottom picture, in the city of lanterns. I can fit inside of it. It took hours and hours to make.
All four of my lanterns were in the hourly procession, that would be six times they led the parade. I am wearing some kind of crazy fire-fairy get-up for some reason.
I found these photos in the Illuminares flickr pool, sorry to the photographers that I haven't credited...

To Do This Weekend: Get Folked!!!!

Lyrics from an Avett Bros song, although I forget which one at the moment. They're going to be playing at the Folk Fest this weekend! A positive, yet daunting message for this week's to-do list.

Holy Purple Hair Batman!

Hooray! The papering's almost done! The purple hair is just the base for a darker colour on top, and the white jaggedy stripe will hopefully look like his hair is shiny, if I'm a skilled enough painter. I think I know what I'm doing...

More Tee Ideas

This is an old design from 3 years ago that I never could get right. If anybody has any thoughts, do put your two cents in!

You should see my blistered hands....

It's a two-candler. That's a technical matter probably only of interest to other lantern-makers.
Started putting on the tissue paper today, a tedious process but it's looking good!
