Too cute!  Cheesy  I just might have to make one of these... thanks for posting the pattern!

I may have to take up knitting again just to make this scarf. Thank you for sharing the pattern! Smiley
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sacred Objects on: June 29, 2007 06:44:11 PM
I used to collect "precious" things when I was a kid, too... I still regret losing the little brass key my grandmother gave me. Although I recently found something that I once that was beautiful and magical and lost forever... and it turned out to be a rather tacky earring. I'm keeping it in my little box of treasures, of course.  Wink

My current "sacred objects"... hm. My grandmother's rolling pin, which I do use (although I nearly got in a fight with my housemate who wanted to thwack at a coconut with it. Angry) The pride bracelet I bought when I was still only half out of the closet... I don't wear it any more, but I'll always keep it. A shell that my best friend gave me in fourth grade.  And I can't bear to throw out my old teddy bear, though he's a very battered-looking creature these days.  Roll Eyes

I'm sure I have more, scattered here and there throughout my life, but those are the ones that come to mind.

Yeah, I bought the stuff because it wasn't polyester resin... as far as I can tell, it's less toxic. It might still self-bond, though. I'll definitely try that first -- thanks for the suggestion!

Yeah, it's clear, and maintaining the clarity is kinda important. I was hoping clear resin bits + clear glue = clear sphere. You don't think so, though?

I just got some EasyCast. The shape I want to make isn't flat-backed -- for simplicity's sake, let's call it a sphere. I'm wondering if I can avoid using a two-part mold, with the resulting headaches of pour sprues and air vents. I'm thinking of making two one-part molds, and gluing the resulting casts together. Would the backs be flat enough? And are there other problems with this idea that I'm not seeing?

Input would be appreciated. I can always figure it out through trial and error, but I'd rather not waste the time + materials.

I like the spiral. Smiley

I also have a suggestion for the chainmail part... a few weeks ago I found this hairband thing at Acme Surplus that looks a lot like chainmail:

I bought it thinking I'd make doll armor out of it, but I've decided it's one of those projects that I'm never going to get around to. And it's  the right size to be a bookmark -- it's even got rings on the end that you could attach the chains for the dice to. If you're interested, I'd be happy to swap it to you for some random crafting supply you might have an excess of.  Wink

FYI, here's a pic with a standard size hardcover for scale:

I like the long arms. FYI, cuteness is mostly in (relative) head size and in facial feature placement. In general, you want the eyes to be halfway down the head or lower. Bigger eyes / smaller mouth is a pretty good recipe for cute, too. But I think your little guy is charming as-is. Smiley

Zucchini bread! It's actually a quickbread, so it's more like muffins than anything. And it tastes nothing at all like zucchini, but it's good. Smiley

Pretty. Smiley

Some sort of wire wrapping technique might be a good way to avoid drilling.
