My Hands

I didn't REALLY know how much I use my hands as an artist! In the last 12 hours I have put my hands through ALOT!!

9:00
Cast Real Gold fish (dead ones)

10:00
Used Algenate ( A slimy green stuff) for a project using real gold fish (dead of course).

10:30
Took the dead fish out of the Algenate. note dead fishy parts don't come out easy!...and smelly!! (I smellt like fish all day!!)

11:00
Used Plaster (white stuff that drys out your hands Very Badly!) for dead gold fish mold that is made out of the Algenate.

12:00
Pick off, Scrap off, Take Off, the Algenate from plaster. happened to stab my self doing it.

2:00
Writing and drawing with a pencil (not that dangerous!)

4:00
Scraping and hollowing out the bottom of a ceramic sculpture I have been working on for a month. The clay got to hard so it took me 2 hours to do it! (I now have blisters from this.)

6:00
Put some last touches on the sculpture

9:00
Typing this for you! :)

My hands are now very dry, blistered, cut up, and sore! I put my hands through a lot!!! Who knew!
