Gesso Central

Streaming Live from My Studio

I created a Ustream channel and will be streaming live from my studio starting next week. I'll be working on various natural dye, rust dyeing, composting, pigment painting, etc. in addition to a lot of collage mix media. I won't be able to particiapte in the chat unfortunately, my monitor and key board are across the room from me but will have a fix for that and soon.

You can find me at http://www.ustream.com/ and search for kbaxterpackwood

Eye Glasses Strap

I started with a cartoon of what I hoped the beaded strap would look like and then started going through my collection of vintage beads, not bad for a first attempt!

Pony Beads

I'm looking for a source that sells these beads in Pony through 11/0  I'd REALLY love more pony's and some 8/0's in the iridescent coated black beads.

These beads are black lined green and blue glass beads respectively, pony size, and I need more of these as well, what you see here in all of the pictures amounts to a tablespoon and a half each.

What's on My Sewing Table

Or you can't see me, right?  NOTE I do put in my descriptions that my items come from a pet friendly home, someday my studio WILL BE out of the house again.

Madder Root Dyed Lace

An Unhappy Pepper

No room in the inn for a tabby cat, Pepper's VERY UNHAPPY because a box of inks is sitting in what he percieves to be HIS chair! ;-)  Poor baby.

Madder Root Dyed Goodness

I've been looking for this pile of trims for the better part of two weeks now, tonight they finally revealed themselves along with a favorite pair of Gingher Scissors and my tape measure.
