Being here (in Autumn's beginning)

Welcome to Spark and the Thyroid Community Team.

I get asked a lot about my art... the images you see here that are non-photos.

The medium is aquatint/etching.

Its a type of printing process, where an image is created on a sheet of copper, using corrosive salts, grounds, burnishing, sanding and scraping. After the image has been refined, its inked and wiped, pulled thru a 1.5 ton hand press with a dampened sheet of paper and felt blankets. During this ...
Welcome to Spark and the Thyroid Community Team.

I get asked a lot about my art... the images you see here that are non-photos.

The medium is aquatint/etching.

Its a type of printing process, where an image is created on a sheet of copper, using corrosive salts, grounds, burnishing, sanding and scraping. After the image has been refined, its inked and wiped, pulled thru a 1.5 ton hand press with a dampened sheet of paper and felt blankets. During this final process the ink is transferred to the paper.

Its extremely time consuming and challenging as the process is full of surprises that you don't always have the ability to anticipate or control. Many of these surprises are not um... desirable. LOL

Rather like thyroid disease.

Between the Hashi's and Aquatints I should be a Zen Master by now.
Unfortunately, I am not.

Its nice to have a goal... although I can't quite decide if the goal has me.
Namaste

You're on as far as I'm concerned!!! Yes, kinda awol is putting it mildly! I try my best but don't have time myself to do CPR on the group, but WITH YOUR HELP . . . yes! sparkmail me (1crazydog).

And yes -- my 13 yr. old shi-a-poo is definitely NUTS sometimes! LOL but then normal is highly over-rated, isn't it!

Thanks for the Goodie Mzz. I actually read an article about Epsom salts helping in a footbath for the dead skin. I will try it myself one of these days. A podiatrist once told me to just use my fingers and just scratch it all off when you've just had a bath or shower. Yeah, right...I have been using Bio-oil every day and seems to be staying softer.
With summer approaching and wearing sandals will make it worse. We will just have to keep scratching away. emoticon emoticon
