The Delphi Glass contest
I found this on the ArtFire Staff Announcements forum:
Have you heard about Delphi's Ring of Fire Artist Challenge? The contest is open to all artist of all levels. All you have to do to enter is incorporate one of Delphi's "Ring of Fire" products into a piece of art and submit your entry to Delphi's online gallery!
To kick start everyone’s creative engine, we’re working withDelphi to hold brainstorming contests! Today’s brainstorm is to think of ways you could incorporate this FineSilver Wire from Delphi into a new project. Post your ideas in the forum between now and Monday. On Monday morning we’ll randomly select oneof the commenter’s who will get to pick out up to $25 worth of products fromthe “Ring of Fire” .
This picture is from "additional ideas for the glass block" section on Delphi. The winner on May 11 was JulieClarkArt who said:
"I would put two different colors of glass marbles in it - like orange and white - fill it with water, and use it as a vase. The marbles would give a "dots" look to it, as well as hold the flowers in place. Taking it a step further, you could paint a monogram on the outside, customizing the "vase"/block."
This is "15 Minutes in the Dark", an original oil painted from Julia's ArtFire studio:
Julia had such a fun idea! What's yours? Delphi wants to know!
