Simple Mold Making Day~

The day is happy when Studio Moon NY (me!) makes  some simple molds ( a couple times a month) ~

I make a lot of molds of everyday items that I feel I can ultimately use in a vingnette or any other piece.

I love mold making and I have one hell of a love affair with alginate.

It is, in fact, better than some………..

Moving on.

The sellers tell you that it may last one or two molds at the very most.  I’m here to tell you I disagree.

My tip:

Once cast and original plaster object removed, cover mold with wet paper towel.  Encase in a closed plastic bag or freezer bag and put in the fridge.  Yeah, they will ultimately deteriotate but not until you have gotten a decent amount of castings.  I run  a good 8 🙂

Definately worth the ching-ching alginate can be.

Second tip: Ask for alginate….Every. Single. Holiday.  It’s worth it.

Third tip: Some wine never hurts the process.  Really. Never 🙂

(Ever…cheers!)

Tuesday’s Tune ~ Ella Henderson “Ghost”

Whatever it is you are haunted by – that ghost you continually carry – you can, in fact, give it up.  The haunting can be over.

I keep going to the river to pray

‘Cause I need something that can wash all the pain
And at most I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awakeMy friends had you figured out
Yeah, they saw what’s inside of you
You tried hiding another you
But your evil was coming throughThese eyes sitting on the wall
They watch every move I make
Bright light living in the shade
Your cold heart makes my spirit shakeI had to go through hell to prove I’m not insane
Had to meet the devil just to know his nameAnd that’s when my love was burning
Yeah, it’s still burning[2x:]
I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cause I need something that can wash all the pain
And at most I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

Each time that I think you go
I turn around and you’re creeping in
And I let you under my skin
‘Cause I love living in the sin

Boy you never told me
True love was going to hurt
True pain I don’t deserve
Truth is that I never learn

[2x:]
I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cause I need something that can wash all the pain
And at most I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Stop the haunting baby

Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
No more haunting baby

I keep going to the river

[2x:]
I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cause I need something that can wash all the pain
And at most I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

Tuesday’s Tune ~ Indigo Girls “Galileo”

I woke up this morning singing this song – it truly is “Tuesday’s Tune”.

Enjoy~

Galileo’s head was on the block
The crime was lookin’ up the truth
And as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
I try to trace them to my youth

And then you had to bring up reincarnation
Over a couple of beers the other night
And now I’m serving time for mistakes
Made by another in another life time

(Chorus) How long ’til my soul gets it right
Can any human being ever reach that kind of light
I call on the resting soul of Galileo king of night vision
King of insight

And then I think about my fear of motion
Which I never could explain
Some other fool across the ocean years ago
Must have crashed his little airplane

(Chorus)

I’m not making a joke
You know me I take everything so seriously
If we wait for the time till all souls get it right
Then at least I know there’ll be no nuclear annihilation in my life time
I’m still not right

(Instrumental)

I offer thanks to those before me
That’s all I’ve got to say
‘Cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime
Now I have to pay

But then again it feels like some sort of inspiration
To let the next life off the hook
She’ll say look what I had to overcome from my last life
I think I’ll write a Book

How long ’til my soul gets it right
Can any human being ever reach the Highest Light
I call on the resting soul of Galileo
King of night vision king of insight

How long…
(Til my soul gets it right)
(Til we reach the highest light)
How long…
(Til my soul gets it right)
(Til we reach the highest light)
How long

Tuesday’s Tune ~ “Glory”~ John Legend & Common

Breathtaking, poignant, beyond important:

One day, when the glory comes
It will be ours, it will be ours
Oh, one day, when the war is one
We will be sure, we will be here sure
Oh, glory, glory
Oh, glory, glory

Hands to the Heavens, no man, no weapon
Formed against, yes glory is destined
Every day women and men become legends
Sins that go against our skin become blessings
The movement is a rhythm to us
Freedom is like religion to us
Justice is juxtaposition in us
Justice for all just ain’t specific enough
One son died, his spirit is revisitin’ us
Truant livin’ livin’ in us, resistance is us
That’s why Rosa sat on the bus
That’s why we walk through Ferguson with our hands up
When it go down we woman and man up
They say, “Stay down” and we stand up
Shots, we on the ground, the camera panned up
King pointed to the mountain top and we ran up

One day, when the glory comes
It will be ours, it will be ours
Oh, one day, when the war is one
We will be sure, we will be here sure
Oh, glory, glory
Oh, glory, glory glory
