Testing....

I'm just testing to see how this system works.


Model for 5 inch tall standing ankh

Apparently Dreamwidth doesn't store images, they must be imported. Fortunately, I do have my regular website for storage. That's the model for my 5 inch tall standing ankh. It made it safely to the foundry!

The clay I used is a bit tacky, especially in warmer temperatures. I learned about a more heat resistant clay, Chavant NSP Medium, which isn't available via Dick Blick, but is through Amazon. I have five bricks of the stuff, waiting for transformation into statues of Set and Horus (Heru-Wer). First step, the throne. I've decided they will share the same throne.




(Testing the html abilities of DW, can a large image be made to fit a smaller space with pixel display constrictions? NO! I had to edit to put a smaller image in.)

But really, the first step: I got the bricks of clay out of the box! Hah!

DW does have image hosting; you can access your 500Mb of space here.

Your original image constrained
And you can size large images using inline styles within the tags:
(The old html width and height attributes can be overridden by the site's style sheets, so may not appear to work in some journal styles)
