Fresh Paint was a great success. It was so invigorating demonstrating to so many curious passersby the wonderful mysteries of metal clay. Who could have known that metal clay has been around for centuries? I thought it was discovered by the Mitsubishi Corporation about 15 years ago. But oh contrare - a curious onlooker told me that the Incas ground platinum and mixed it with copper and sintered it centuries ago. Again, who could have known? I certainly didn't. So many people have never heard of metal clay. I know I didn't until I met a wonderful jewelry artist at the Anacortes Arts and Crafts Fair two years ago. It was so exciting to see one of her pieces this past weekend on a fellow vendor. This event was wonderful. If you didn't attend, you should next year. It was great to see everyone sharing their talents!
