How do you make a fire star?
First, you take a glass blowing class, and make a paperweight.
Then you go to Maui on your second honeymoon, and get a cool little glass bulb with an etched jellyfish inside, that comes with a stand… or base… that has color-changing LED lights in it, and, in a dark kitchen, you take super close up photos of the paperweight using a macro lens, as the colors shift.
Then, using that cool website I am always telling you about, you put that macro photo through the ‘kaleidoscope’ filter.
Then, using the new image, you just use some other digital magic filters on it.
See, nothing to it.
I mean, this will work on any other images you have floating around.
So I guess the Hawaii trip and the macro photography and glass blowing class are sort of optional.
But art doesn’t like laziness.
Art requires dedication, if nothing else.
Art wants you to try…
So at least go to Maui.
