It’s official. I am obsessed with making domino pins. I just bought a huge box of Mexican Train dominoes and am heading out to pick up some alcohol inks. These dominoes are slightly wider and thinner than regular dominoes. I also saw some curved dominoes for a game called Bendomino and these could well be my next adventure.
I think this qualifies as an addiction. I can’t stop thinking about it and how I will get more of it. I spend all of my free time doing it. I have never used alcohol inks before but I am already in love with their potential. They practically melt into the surface of the domino and create a wonderful marbled effect.
Despite my earlier hesitation about selling my work, I am going to move forward with opening an Etsy shop. I have already saturated the local market of friends and co-workers and I have so many pins to sell! Making them is still fun and making money off of it is pretty fun too, so I am going to pursue online sales.
I love the feeling of being passionate about an art project. It energizes and focuses me. There is no question of what art I will make today-I must hurry home and work on dominoes! What is your current passion? What does it take for you to become engrossed in an art project? How does it feed your spirit (and possibly your wallet)? I am interested in hearing from others about what you are working on and/or what the obstacles are to becoming fully involved in a project. Warm wishes as you pursue your passion!
