11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Check It Out! My first resin pendants! on: June 21, 2008 12:41:20 PM
Tried my hand at resin for the first time this week. Learned a lot (especially about wearing sunscreen while outside slaving over these things! Yikes!) and I was really happy with how they turned out. So much so, I think they're actually sell-able. It was really fun deciding what to put in them, and now I have tons of ideas. The hard part for me was all the sanding and buffing to get the sides and backs looking perfect. I used a wet sanding method with auto detailing paper to get em smooth, then buffed them with my dremel tool and topped em off with an acrylic spray. Does that sound right to everyone? Is there an easier way to do this? (Other than pour them more precisely so I don't have to work so hard to fix em)



12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Online Coptic Binding Tutorial/Video on: February 23, 2008 11:39:16 AM
Hey, I ran across this great coptic binding tutorial that I thought I would share with you all. I had read a ot of tutorials online and was still having a little bit of difficulty. Watching someone do it helped me a lot! Here is the link to the youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fotqlCgAbDM
The only downfall to the video is there is no sound.
Enjoy!
13  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Help! Burning Paper & Wood with household iron on: January 27, 2008 05:33:15 PM
Hiya,
In short, I am working on some pieces (drawings and paintings) that I would like to scorch with a household iron. I picked up a cheap one to use as a "craft iron" and I plan on burning the imprint of it into paper and wood both. My concern is that simply leaving it on the surface won't leave a good impression of the iron and may be a little dangerous. I thought treating the surface of either the iron or paper would create a quicker burn and therefore a darker and safer way to make the mark. My first instinct is brushing sugar water over the area, but I thought I would see if anyone has done this before I go around catching things on fire. If anyone has done this, or has ideas for me, the information would be much appreciated.
Thanks!
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Skull Patterns, anyone? on: December 17, 2007 01:00:27 AM
Hiya,
I am looking for some skull patterns that aren't the typical skull and crossbones pirate type. Ideally I would like something a little more cutesy- maybe with hearts for eyes or something similar. It would be for a double knitted scarf and possibly some other knits.
I may try to sit down and work one out for myself, but I thought I would see if anyone knew of a pattern/chart like that already out there somewhere.
Thanks!!
