Who would have though?
That this shot of my clay tags all waiting very patiently to be cured would be a HUGE success!
This was taken in the lead up to the 2010 Easter range and I though I ‘work in process’ shot would be good.
Well, it seems to have become a big hit with Pinterest.
The traffic it has created is mind blowing…a good thing I might add,
…THEY ARE NOT SALT DOUGH!
In the comments under each ‘re-pin’ there is a recipe for a salt dough mix with my tags as the advertisement.
I could foresee what would happen and I was right.
Emails asking how I got the finish as their salt dough mix didn’t turn out and had I forgot something in the ingredients
…no, because they are not salt dough, but earthenware clay.
So, I spent a bit of time typing this under some of the re-pins so hopefully I didn’t have to keep saying the same thing.
It is amazing that such an innocent shot of my humble work has soared to new heights,
but I just don’t want to have to answer hundreds of emails asking how I did my mix, because
ITS NOT SALT DOUGH.
It is amazing, this Internet pinning phenomenon that has taken myself and many others under its grip, and sucked us in to pinning images we love…it’s addictive…it really is!
I just hope when they follow the link and come to my blog, that they will see this and I have answered the question…I hope.
Otherwise I was STOKED for the added interest in my blog and Shop,
so thank you Pinterest.
