91  My Adipose (version 1.0) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: October 05, 2008 04:36:35 PM
Having finally seen the episode, I thought I would join the crowd and make myself an Adipose from Doctor Who. I only got the white polar fleece yesterday so I knocked one up this afternoon.

It's only v1.0 and I intend to make a few more before I go to Chicago Tardis in November. I want to leave them in hidden corners at the con, and peeking out from behind things, and see who notices.

92  Is this offensive? in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by aethelberga on: July 16, 2008 06:05:49 PM
I have always wanted at least one "theme" room in my house and I am zeroing in on the downstairs bathroom. I was thinking of an ancient Egyptian theme as I already have a ton of xst ready to frame that I could hang. But I want to paint one of the walls like the inside of a tomb, like this:

Is it offensive to paint gods (even ancient ones I don't believe in) on the walls of a bathroom? My gut tells me that if it weirds me out I likely shouldn't do it but I don't have any other room suitable to do this.

93  Polymer Clay Rock Poster in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: June 08, 2008 02:44:22 PM
I love the psychedelic Fillmore posters from the late sixties. I think the art and the colours are amazing. The original artist on this one is Bonnie MacLean and I recreated it in polymer clay using teapotdkny's filigree technique.

I used Kato Clay, and broke two extruding guns doing it. Here's a closeup of the swirly bits:

I tried Sculpey on a test project (maybe I'll post it someday) and found it too mushy, but I learned a lot and applied it to this project. I still have one or two small areas to fill in, but it's 99.9% done.
Thanks for looking.

94  Rune rocks in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: February 18, 2008 09:25:32 AM
Inspired by the people on here who made WoW hearthstones, I decided to see how realistic looking I could make rocks. Before they were baked I "carved" runes into them, so they could be sort of lucky charm type things.

95  My First Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: January 28, 2008 06:35:28 PM
I just finished my first ever quilt yesterday.

I started out to do just a crib quilt, but the flannel was on sale, and so I had lots, and bigger is always better, right? It ended up about 4.5 x 5.5 feet. Consequently some of the seams towards the center don't bear close scrutiny. Still, it was made with sincere affection, and it was a real learning experience.
The back is the same yellow that you see on the borders, and was a nod to the 'girlification' of the quilt, as my boss rather uncooperatively did not give birth to a boy.
Thanks for looking.

96  Some poly clay masks (image heavy) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: January 11, 2008 08:20:40 PM
I had a full face ceramic mask that I used as a form to make some half masks, so I could play with technique. it's hard to tell the size here, but the masks are a little bigger than the palm of your hand.
This one was black spirals with Swarovski crystals inset.

This one was less spirally, more swirly, but basically the same technique (and the same crystals).

This one was a mokume gane technique.

And this one was was made to look like stone. I like this one best

Thanks for looking

97  My Spiral Period in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: January 08, 2008 05:48:27 PM
I've been covering anything and everything with filigree-like spirals recently. This a pic with all the ones that turned out the best.

This is just a flat piece now, but might end up being a mirror back, if I can find the right size mirror.

And here's a (slightly fuzzy) closeup o fthe jar.

98  Mini Goth Doll - First completed project in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: October 24, 2007 05:56:42 PM
After years of knitting dolls, I've moved on to cloth dolls. As I'm only learning how to use a sewing machine it is a slow process. Here is my first completed doll, a mini Goth Doll. The hair is eyelash yarn and really makes it. The face is embroidered.
