|My part of the collaborative piece|
At a workshop that I went to recently, we made a collaborative piece of Chagall's. The presenter gave us a a small rectangle with the piece we had to enlarge and recreate and a piece of MDF with a water colour pencil drawing outlining shapes. We were not allowed to talk to anyone, until the presenter asked certain numbers to get together and see if our colours matched of not. Then the piece was put together. It was quite extraordinary.

I have been dabbling Resin to make some jewellery of late- not really dabbling more like possessed! Anyhow, I started worrying in the middle of the night (as you do) that there is such health risks with using resin so often, so pondered and thought of an alternative. When my dear friend Mrs Tiff gave me a oval pendant with with a glass dome covering. So here are some pics of my 'first go' with resin to the current design with glass dome.
You can see that my first go have now started to show signs of 'wear'. I didn't adhere the drawing properly and so the resin seeped under the image causing it to go brown.
