Mixed feelings Review by Berni
Rating

There are several great things about the video. I learned about painting and stamping rice paper and how to turn that into a fabric-like material that can be sewn. That's awesome. I truly, however, wanted to make the bra which is the first sculpture shown. I ran into several issues. First, there are no dimensions given which would have helped. Second, we aren't told the gauge of wire to use. I found that 20 seemed nearly sturdy enough, but it was hard to loop & secure. Trying 24 for the cross pieces of the straps was easier, but they kept sliding down the side pieces. Ultimately,once I got everything secured, the one of the base loops just snapped. That project failed, twice. Now, the free-form project at the end (which I think might have been better to have been the first demonstration) was very successful, as was the paper creation. So, while I'm not 100% happy, I did learn some new techniques and the video - while lacking some helpful information, was well-produced and interesting.
