Here’s a set of ATCs I recently finished. All are finally colored in. Pictured are a couple journal cards, some new skellies and a flaming heart. All ATCs are drawn with ink and then colored with watercolors.
Just listed a Day of the Dead skull ATC on eBay. This is a hand colored linoleum block print. I carved the block, printed it and then went back in with watercolors.
A final batch of Day of the Dead hand painted ceramic skulls. They were ALOT of work, but worth it. It’s so cool to see them all together. To the left are a few covered with glaze waiting to be fired. Next week I’ll get them into the kiln. My November show and sale is […]
These are my ceramic pendants finally packaged. I am really pleased with the final overall packaging. I ended up making my own packaging backing and painted them and cut them myself. I think I still might stamp the outside boxes to add even more to the design.

There was so much thought put into them right down to the tiniest detail. Left: By Catherine van der Hoeff, of the Netherlands. Incredible […]
I did a quick lino carving in ATC size last weekend. I printed these with a Staze-on ink pad, let them dry and then went back in and hand colored with some bright Windsor watercolors. Here’s a little more about block printing, (although these were produced with a simple ink pad).
I had a chance to do the black line work on some more wine toppers last night. I did a bunch of Day of the Dead toppers which are pretty fun and different. Next I’ll bisque them, but not before I have a nice big kiln full. I’ll probably do another 10 tonight and fire […]
Day of the Dead Bamboo Beads Sumthin’ different. I’ve been making Frida Kahlo bamboo beads for awhile and was geting bored of making them. I think it’s cool that you can tile the photo across the three beads. It opens up alot of possibilites. I put these up for auction at eBay if anyone out […]
