DAY # 267 – DIA DE LOS MUERTOS

#267 DIA DE LA MUERTE (1)

I am loving these mugs!

They are so happy and make me laugh!  Now all I need to add is all the color to the pattern and they should be perfectly “Mary”!

Last week at pottery I threw these mugs on the pottery wheel with no problem after being away from pottery for three months.  It felt great!

This week, in the classroom, I added the handles, eyes and mouths.  That in itself took me three hours, so I took them home to carve the decorations and tomorrow I will paint all the details.  These are supposed to resemble the sugar skulls from the Day of the Dead celebration in Mexico.

The only risk I run now, is driving them back to the pottery studio in one piece.  They are extremely fragile before firing…wish me luck!

I also added a few more finishing touches to my giant painting.  The eyelets and shoelaces to the sneakers as well as a second layer of feathers to the feather duster.   NOW IT’S FINISHED OFFICIALLY!

I have a fever, aches, pains and a runny nose care of my kiddos.  I’m off to have a cup of soup and slip into bed.

Ugh……
