Thank you very much. My suggestion to you would be write down every little technique you learn from others and the ones you discover yourself. Make sure to include a detailed description of how to achieve the look for each technique. It's the little details that make your work come alive. I've been doing this for a year now and I can tell you that your work will improve very fast. Watch the videos and don't be affraid to experiment. You should purchase the additional videos by Mike Vernelson on the artisans channel. The information in those videos will go a very long way to improving your abilities.
Scott- I know you are probably a busy man, but if you have any desire or free time I would love to collaborate with you on some design ideas for my showroom. It's a blank canvas waiting to be carved up! I want us artisans to show everyone in Florida how amazing and unlimited the options are with our craft. My shop is located near the Naples Airport. I got the keys to it last week and all I am doing is giving it a nice scrub down, then it'll be ready to build whatever we want. Sound fun? Get back ASAP. Thanks. Brian
Scott, I was just looking at your stuff. Man I am blown away with you talent dude. Very cool stuff, love all the pirate stuff as well AURRRR. The Tiki looks great, very traditional, something I am going to try soon. I have been influenced buy a few artist friends of mine and never really did to much of the traditional tiki carvings. You Got Talent Dog, Very nice stuff and most of all unique and original. Got company coming over right now, but would love to talk more about some of your work. Have a great evening, by the way were are you at? I am in Melbourne
I have all the material but I have' nt had a chance yet . I work 4/10's and then on Fri. I volunteer/work at our church . We're building a new sanctuary and we're in the foundation phase of the project. But thanks for asking I promise I will get some pics up soon ! Looks like I am gonna have to start burning a little midnight oil !! LOL :)
Hey Scott, Home show went well. We picked up some business and now that the weather is better we should start to see more from it. At this point the website is just a tool. This type of work is not mainstream yet so not a lot of people know about it. It will be a process but I'm looking forward to it. Facebook is also great. you should put a company profile on their as well, it helps drive traffic to the website. Generally I get 5-10 people on my site daily. Not bad for our first year I guess. If Florida has Kijiji, check out www.kijiji.com It's a great place to post an add. I've had a number of call backs. I'll help with anything I can. By the way you have some really cool work. Very original!
Thank's Scott for the positive feedback. I'm very much looking forward to working on the pool again. We've had a very cold ,wet spring so far.And that's not just an excuse.I really love this work. Andy
I did not use it yet, this piece has been done for a week or so. I have a little pole in the garage ready to go, I am going to get some sand this morning and try it though. I will let you know in the next day or so. What do you use for slower set? What are you working on? AUURRRR Im sure It is Bad Azz
Scott That sounds insane Man, best of luck with it. Yea the reason I wanted to learn this stuff is so I can decorate my pizza oven with it. I just built the oven this spring and we love it, there is a great site for that called Faruno Bravo. They give you the planes for free and the forum is awesome, very helpful and friendly.Good Luck with that and I can not wait to see your progress. Talk soon GD
