1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Safe to bake shortbread in this painted mold? on: July 07, 2014 02:51:29 PM


I just found this at a thrift store. As far as I can tell, it's a vintage Hartstone shortbread pan that somebody gussied up. The reverse side is painted pretty colors and glazed, even initialed RR by the artist.

Do you think it's oven-safe at this point? The glaze and paint make me wary. I suspect that RR hung it on her wall after painting, and never baked with it.

I can always use a cookie stamp dough which I invert onto a cookie sheet before baking, but of course it would be nice to be able to bake shortbread right in it.

What would you do?
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / How Can I Make Art Lockets Like These? Techniques? See Pics on: June 22, 2014 10:36:08 AM




Hello all,

The jewelry forum directed me here.

I love gorgeous lockets like the ones above. I purchased one myself, but haven't yet managed to reverse engineer how it was made.

My question is, how how how can I make them? What technique is being used to get the gorgeous pictures onto the lockets? Is it some kind of image transfer? Where would I find them, and how could I use them?

I know this would be a great way to make super cool personalized gifts for friends. Can somebody tell me how these are made, and with what materials?

Many thanks from a jewelry lover,

How lovely!

I would never have guessed your stunning creation would come from the humble origins of your first photo - tracing circles! It is so detailed. I LOVE the color pop of turquoise in there. The centerpiece jewels are awesome too. And all of the carefully-made petals! Fantastic stuff, it's such a pretty, fresh piece!

Wonderful work! I bet your friend is thrilled! The weeping angel has so many great details - did you quilt the wings? You found such a perfect fabric, too!

He's totally adorable and looks just like himself! Cheesy

You did an amazing job with his hands. I love his expression too!

My sister would go bug-nuts if she found this cutie under the Christmas tree. I'm guessing that many Spock fans feel the same!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Stamped Jewelry Pendants on: December 11, 2013 12:51:07 PM


I've just gotten into jewelry stamping and I'm loving it! These pendants will be Christmas presents for my friends. I'm still really new to it all but I'm optimistic about how well it's coming together.





This last one is just for me - after stamping up a storm, I decided to make something I would love too!

It's from one of my favorite children's books, "The Voyage of the Basset," and is supposed to translate as 'By believing, one sees.'

Fingers crossed that the recipients are as happy with their gifts as I am! Grin

One of the cooler poppets I've seen. I can just imagine him recruiting the teddy bears to his army... "You have heart!" Tee-hee!
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / How to apply an image to a locket? on: July 22, 2012 03:58:56 PM
I just recieved a gorgeous locket from a kindly internet seller. The picture on the front is shiny and beautiful, with vivid colors. It's been applied to a vintage locket.

It occurs to me that this would be a great way to make gifts for my literati friends (using public domain illustrations, quotes from their fave books, etc.).

I have some jewelry-making experience, but no idea how an image would be applied to a locket so seamlessly. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I would love to get crafting!
