Now that October is over and Halloween is done, we are now focusing on our next big thing, the new show in December. This show will be very different than the one in Brooklyn. Not only it is the location very different but the show will also be held at the St. John the Divine. In case you did not know and you are wondering as I was, St. John the Divine is the largest Cathedral in the world, meaning a church that is also the seat of a Bishop. Measured by length or internal volume, it is one of the five largest church buildings in the world. We are so very excited to be there on December 5th to the 7th.
This past weekend I worked non-stop. I really wanted to finish with painting and waxing of the jars and gluing the wicks. Although painting seems an easy and fun task, it can get tiresome and requires lots of attention. This time I painted some of the jars with two different coats of color so when I sanded and waxed the jars two different colors will come through, like these green and red mason jars. So I painted the red color two coats on these mason jars and once dried I applied two more coats in green. I let it dry overnight and then next day I sanded slowly and patiently, but patience is not my virtue.
We painted this mason jar with 4 different coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. This is the outcome after sanding it out and waxing it with clear wax.
As much as I want to paint the jars all kind of colors, I try to keep focus and get the Christmassy colors to be my focus. So I painted some jars green, red, white, bronze and copper colors.
So come join us at the show on December 5th-7th. Our booth will be located on the main entrance.
