More Wabi-Sabi Instruction on the Way!





This piece was featured in one of the two DVDs I filmed earlier this week at the North Light studio in Blue Ash, Ohio. I demonstrated adding 3-D elements to this encaustic collage, including vintage wooden buttons and several fish vertabrae.

Though I've made my own videos for online classes, I had never been in a professional filming studio before--I'll admit I was a little nervous! My editor, Kristy and the film crew, Rick and Christine, I had met before when I went back to North Light to photograph the project steps for my book. They are warm, and funny, as well as being highly skilled. They soon put me at ease, and I had a lot of fun creating the videos. They even used a clapper, like in the real movies, which made me feel so very cool.  

The lovely and talented Kristy

One of the videos features Kristy and me going on a walk to find wabi-sabi in nature and objects along the way. We did find some cool stuff that served as inspiration for some of the projects shown in the DVDs. The DVDs will include using acrylics, collage, re-inkers, alcohol inks, coffee, encaustic, cold wax and oil, plaster, 3-D elements and more.

I'll keep you posted on the release date for the DVDs. It will likely be the middle of December. Now that I've overcome my nervousness, I hope I get to do this again some time!
