Hoping your month has been as good as mine! I sold my last casted print a couple of weeks ago at the New Harmony Farmers' and Artisans' Market. New ones are needed so I headed out to see what I could find in the line of tracks, down in the Wabash River bottoms. It's one of my family's favorite areas to spend time in and when we've had a bit of rain, tracks can be spotted easily there.
In the past, from various areas, I've been able to cast a panther track and a few wolf prints. The little boys love them and I sell them at a price a boy can afford.
My sister went with me on this venture. We weren't too far into the bottoms when we came across some turkey, feline, raccoon, and coyote prints. They were small ones. It has been very fairly dry this month so next rain I will be out early and looking for something bigger to lay on the table for eager collectors of prints. For now what I have will do for some crafting and casting practice.
A couple bits of info that aren't included in the vid are that I carry a pencil to engrave the date while the plaster is still a little moist. Also, I carry a small bag of plaster casting in my backpack, along with bottled water and a few small, easy-fit tools that I use to mix, pour and extract the casts with.
We’re still new at videoing our little adventures, so please do not judge too harshly.
My sister, Angelia (femmeflashpoint of flashPress), and I had fun making this one. I think she did a great job throwing the stills and clips together for you to experience. Most of the photos and video segments in this one were captured by her (femmeflashpoint of flashPress), and hopefully you’ll not get confused with our voices when we’re both commenting in the video. We sound almost exactly alike.
My husband explained to a young lad at the Farmer's Market that he could practice making his own casts with his dogs prints in his own back yard. The child was thrilled and eager to give it a try with his daddy's help.
Until next month take care of yourself, huddle up around a good ol’ bonfire with your neighbors and roast a few marshmallows. Autumn has arrived here in the rivers’ land and the weather is outstanding.
I hope you enjoy the video! A share and a thumbs up and maybe even subscribing to my site and our YouTube channel will be greatly appreciated if you dig the dig and thank you ahead of time!
