This week marked the halfway point—10 weeks out of 20—and we had a chance to go back and fix past mistakes. It was a do-over / catch-up week and it was much appreciated!
Title: “An acquired taste”
Size: 4.25″ x 4.25″
Materials: Stone, smalti, and gin bottle
How long did it take to complete? About two and a half hours
Thoughts: I was so happy to have a chance to go back and redo a challenge that I wished I had done differently. I knew immediately that I wanted to revisit last week’s challenge (“When life gives you lemons…”) and try a more appropriate thinset colour. I’m much happier with the results of this week’s challenge—that green glass is popping now! The name is a nod to both gin and thinset, the latter because that’s the mistake I was fixing and because it took me quite a while to learn to love working with thinset.
