I made this red vase in one of my classes. Everyone kept telling me that the red glaze wouldn't turn out. So I put about thirty layers on and it worked pretty well.

This image is kind of creepy. I used a chemical process to make this cyanotype for a lesson I taught. The prep time was a lot, but it only takes about 15 minutes to expose these images.
First you make a collage, then get a transparency made. You put the chemically treated paper under the image and a glass sheet on top. Leave out in the sun and then rinse with water. Simple enough? Well it doesn't work as well when it's cloudy. So I put this one on top of a light in my professor's office. It worked surprisingly well!

This is one of my entries to my visual journal I did for a class. My theme was all about women and motherhood. I had a lot of fun with it and recommend trying a process like this if you ever get stuck on what to draw.
