11  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / First try at canes! on: April 22, 2009 08:15:32 PM
These are my first EVER attempt at canes. I think they came out okay for my first try, don't you?

(btw they are miniature, because I think most things are cuter when they're tiny Smiley )

Sushi cane


Lime cane



I also made a few mini books
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Sushi in-a-bottle Necklace on: April 22, 2009 08:03:20 PM
First of all, my absolute favorite type of food is Japanese. So naturally alot of my projects are focused around that theme and during my spring break last week I got a little bored so I thought I would try to work with some polymer clay(last time I tried, I didn't seem to have the patience and I got frustrated and quit) But anyway, I tried making a Sushi cane and it actually came out better than I thought it would! My love of miniatures and a love of tiny bottles brought me to make my new favorite necklace Smiley

Its 4 pieces of a sushi roll and one little piece of tuna nigiri. i also added some tiny marble type balls I had to imitate fish roe(it would be cuter if they were red though)
then I made a little gyoza dumpling to go along with the rest of the food.

Comment and criticism welcomed!





This is the first try but the cork started to yellow my liquid for some reason Sad
13  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Placebo hoodie :) on: January 24, 2009 07:27:33 PM
Sooo its been a while since I've stenciled/sewn anything. Lately I've been making cell charms for my friends but I decided to make something for myself.

I have tons of TH stuff, so I wanted to make some gear for one of my other favorite bands, Placebo!! I also looked at their official merch online and didn't really care to much for it, so why not make your own? Lol I knew I had to do the signature wings, then decided on a lyric on the front.

Tell me what you think!! (the hoodie is actually a greenish/tuquoise color, but for some reason my camera made it come out gray...?)


 
14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / (RINGS) my shrinky dink experiment?! (img heavy) on: April 27, 2008 03:38:37 PM
Well a weekend with nothing to do turns into a weekend of crafting :]


i was inspired by Star's post on shrinkydink rings, and decided to give it a try.
(http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=236569.0)

i thought id make some merch from one of my favorite bands, Tokio Hotel, because you cant get alot of their merchandise stuff here in the states, and shipping from THEIR merch store cost about $40. ya, my parents aren't really up for paying that either.

**i advise if you try this for the first time, practice on a scrap piece, not on the good one you made because it most likely wont turn out good the first time you try and you would just ruin your good piece of shrinky dinks.

so here are 3 of the ones i made (i wanted to do something simple):</br>

gotta have the band name, and the Kaulitz twins :]]
