I made it out of an old journal and just some magazine strips and clippings. The front is just random strips woven together and taped on. The back is all perfume bottles. You could pick any theme: Rings, flowers, eyes...just random stuff. Whatever. I really like how it came out. I've already gotten requests from other people.
I did this for my friend's birthday. Sorry I don't have pictures, my camera is retarded.
Anywho, here's what you do:
Take a spiral. You know, the ones you get at walmart for like, 50 cents. Pick a theme for the back. I used perfume bottles. Tape them onto the back on the journal. The front is a bit more complicated. Basically, you weave strips of magazine ads and tape them in place on the front of the spiral. It looked really cool, I'll try and get some pics later.
Okay, so I just made a bunch of poly clay stuff. I'm wondering how to seal it. I have this spray gloss acrylic stuff ((PLAID/ Patricia Nimcocks?)) , but I'm a bit hesitant to use it for a few reasons:
1. I'm not sure how big the spray range is. I mean...the things I want to spray are pretty small, and I don't want to end up sealing everything in a 5-foot radius, you know what I mean?
2. I don't know if it's okay to use for the clay.
3. I'm kind of scared that this stuff is going to kill me! LOL I mean, there's all this warning stuff on back, going on about harmful vapors and containing a chemical known to cause cancer in the state of California. It seems a bit hyperbolic. I mean really, if it were that dangerous would they let people sell it?
So, can someone help me out here, give me some information on this stuff? Should I use it, or just get some paint on sealer or nail polish or something?
Alrighty, so I have my very first package of plolymer clay and I'm terribly excited. I wanna get started. BUT. I'm making christmas presents, and I want to make heart necklaces, but I don't have a heart-shaped cookie cutter. I looked all over the freaking store, but there were NONE. Soooo...could someone help me to make decent looking hearts? Or maybe come up with a solution for an improvised heart 'cookie-cutter'? Please and thank you!
