101  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Prunesquallor, appreciating on: May 06, 2013 03:10:08 PM
This is a sculpture I've been working on literally for years and have finally completed molding, casting and painting.

Doctor Alfred Prunesquallor of Gormenghast:



The reason it took me so long is that I have a hard time giving myself permission to be creative just for myself, with no practical purpose (like, say, clothing or paying work).  I hope the Nerd-along will give me more opportunities to feel it's ok to make stuff for myself, even something as terrifically nerdy as this sculpture. Smiley I am probably the world's biggest fan of this character, who was invented by dark fantasist Mervyn Peake.

102  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Sculpture of race driver Jim Clark on: April 23, 2013 01:52:11 PM
Here's a portrait sculpture I finished a couple days ago of race driver Jim Clark.  It's about six inches tall, of Classic Clay.  I sculpted it for my husband to digitally scan, then shrink down in the computer to produce slot car driver figures for 1/43, 1/32 and 1/24 scales.  This is the third driver portrait I've done, the previous were Graham Hill and Denise McCluggage. 

103  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Adhering fabric to paper or cardboard - best glue? on: March 24, 2013 04:25:39 PM
This is a question so basic I'm embarrassed to ask it, but I need to know what is the best glue for adhering fabric to paper or cardboard?

104  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I am the Death Owl on: March 22, 2013 05:37:36 PM
This is the first new Gormenghast fanart I've done in a long while, and was inspired by an old post by Knickertwist.  This little guy is one of the human-flesh-eating owls from the Tower of Flints in Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast novels.  He's made of scraps.

105  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / sewing stretch fabrics without zigzag? on: March 22, 2013 03:04:55 PM
Is it possible and not a horrible idea to sew stretch fabrics such as jersey with only a straight stitch?  My sewing machine is an old one with only straight stitch, and I have generally sewn stretch fabric by hand after my previous machine with a zigzag broke.  Sad   What pitfalls and dangers should I be aware of if trying to sew stretch fabrics with a straight stitch machine?  Or should I just not try it?

Thanks for any advice, warnings, etc!

108  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Edwardian jacket on: December 26, 2011 07:37:53 AM
Here's an Edwardian style jacket I made for my sister.  My own pattern based on historical examples.  I left off fastenings because she plans to steampunk it up with buckles and things:



This was my first tailored type of jacket and it was difficult.  I need to learn proper tailoring construction techniques!  
109  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Medieval dress sew-along on: December 21, 2011 10:00:22 AM
I'm starting one here!   Smiley

Mine isn't going to be a genuine Medieval dress, but rather inspired by 19th century painter John William Waterhouse, particularly his paintings "Ophelia" and "Miranda"

Here's a page about medieval construction:  http://www.damehelen.com/cotes/patterns.html
