I’m about to set off for the Hochanda TV studios ready for my shows at 5pm and 9pm today. The That’s Crafty! Design Team have sent in a-maz-ing samples, and I can’t wait to share them, and my demonstrations with you. In the first hour, I’ll be showing off true rust and patination effects on the new That’s Crafty! Surfaces hanging light bulbs and cogs, as well as cog upright and cog clock. In the twilight hour, I’ll be doing four quick makes featuring more of the uprights.
Don’t forget – the shows are live, and due to various reasons outside of my control, I’m sleep deprived… so have fun watching! And it’s been pointed out to me that the second show is after the watershed – will I have the nerve to misbehave?
Watch and catch up online, from wherever you are in the world, at hochanda.com. For UK viewers, Freeview 85 (you may need to retune), Sky 663 or Freesat 817.
Following my TV appearance a fortnight ago, I do apologise for not getting a tutorial done earlier as I promised – I came down with a humdinger of a cold the week following the shows. Between the lethargy, the laryngitis and other stuff, I didn’t get to do what I wanted in The Studio. ‘Tis done now though, so grab a cup of your favourite beverage and start reading!
I thought I would show you how I created my stained glass window arch using the fabulous Arch Upright from That’s Crafty! since I didn’t get the chance to show it off on air. Mixing different types of ink (alcohol and Distress) and paint, and making full use of a Dinky Stencil, this window brings together a number of techniques to complete a mixed media mediaeval masterpiece!
I am live on Hochanda – the home of crafts, hobbies and art – available on Sky 663, Freeview 85 or Freesat 817, and on www.hochanda.com right now. With top tips for working with That’s Crafty! Surfaces, clock stacks and dreamcatchers, I’ll also be showcasing Pentart glass paints and Express Transfer medium.
I’ll be posting mini-tutorials for each of the projects over the next week. Don’t forget to check out the fabulous That’s Crafty! blog and the design team blogs (on the That’s Crafty! blog side bar) for more inspiration and projects.
Oh, I’m on at 11am as well, or you can catch up or watch again for the next 10 days over at Hochanda’s online TV Schedule – just set the date in the drop down list for 7th October and look for my shows at 8am and 11am.
