My wife and I got the Bible passages that inspired each painting glued onto the back of each and every magnet last night. That means tonight we get to crack open this box and start pouring a thick layer of resin on each of the prints. It's always exciting seeing what the shiny, glass-like surface does in making the images even more vibrant. Once these magnets are finished, I will be giving one away for free here on Facebook. Stay tuned for more details!
Each of the basswood backing plates has now been given a coat of black spray paint on both sides. Then the all important magnet is glued to the back with a strong epoxy. It's nearly time to begin adhering the prints!
Yesterday I was able to get all of the 1/8" Bass wood backing plates cut to size for the new batch of magnets. Then last night, my amazing wife helped me get them all sanded and the corners rounded off. Perhaps my favorite part of making these magnets is the fact that they are basically hand made gospel tracts. As they are displayed in someone's home or workplace, they will hopefully create opportunities for Godly conversations. I find that single thought incredibly motivating in all of the art that I create, but even more so with these. Once the magnets are completed, I'll be giving one away on Facebook! Stay tuned for more details coming soon about the giveaway.
Step two in making another batch of my Fine Art Magnets is carefully cutting out each of the 64 Giclèe prints so they can be mounted to the wood backing. I'm hoping to get all the wood pieces cut, sanded, and painted this weekend. Once the magnets are completed, I'll be giving one away on Facebook! Stay tuned for more details coming soon about the giveaway.
Finally! After suffering through nearly a month of BLS (Busy Life Syndrome), I'm finding time to start getting back into some creative projects. It does my soul good to be thinking about artistic endeavors once more. I have a number of projects lined up between now and summer, and the first one is making another batch of my Fine Art Magnets. The first step is to spray all of the Giclèe prints with two coats of clear acrylic to help protect them. Check! Once they are done, I'll be giving one away for free on my Facebook account! Stay tuned for more details about the giveaway!
