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,

4  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
5  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!
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sitting Bear From Estelle Ansley Worrell's Pattern on: July 26, 2011 01:39:23 PM


I finished this little guy a few days ago.



I'm so happy he turned out well!

I used Estelle Ansley Worrell's "Sitting Bear" pattern from her book "Classic Teddy Bear Designs - Heirlooms to Make and Dress." I borrowed it from the library, and liked it so much that now I have a copy of my own. Smiley
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Where to get a nice, cheap mini sewing machine? on: June 20, 2009 12:39:43 PM
My full-sized machine is in storage. I don't know how long it will be before I'm reunited with it, LOL! I'm looking for a small, inexpensive sewing machine that is nice enough for basic sewing (easy dolls, etc.) and does not have a ton of lead - seriously, I saw one for sale that said "WARNING:Lead in Wire Parts. Wash Hands After Use." That's certainly chilling! Shocked

Can anyone recommend a nice model of machine and where to go to buy one?

Thanks for any advice you can offer. Kiss

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Where to find craft mirror I can cut to size with scissors? on: May 04, 2009 08:02:56 PM
I need a piece of mirror cut to a specific size, and the one provided in this kit (a kit for a small mirrored box) is poor quality. The local craft store didn't seem to carry any bendy mirror material that I can cut to size without special tools. Where can I get something like that? It doesn't need to be heavy duty at all, just something to glue into a wooden frame. The mirror should curve at the top and the craft store does not carry any regular mirrors that are the correct shape.

Thank you everbody! Smiley
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Any simple patterns for an adult human plush(Dr. Horrible doll hopefully to be)? on: January 13, 2009 12:12:24 PM
Hi there! Cheesy

I haven't used my sewing machine yet (I'm sort of nervous about it!). I want to make someone a Dr. Horrible doll, complete with lab coat and goggles. Can anyone recommend a simple pattern for a man doll?
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Waldorf(ish) Doll Made From Socks! Picture heavy on: September 12, 2008 01:28:13 PM
Heartily inspired by Daisy the Dollar Store Dolly (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=237733.0) I decided to give the same thing a try myself! Grin She is hand-sewn.

Here is Chaussette, saying "Bonjour!"  Cheesy "Chaussette" is the French word for sock!


She has no shoes because they were more difficult to make than I thought they would be. Embarrassed It's okay though, because her name is Chaussette, after all!

Her dress is made from a baby skirt I found at a dollar store. The sleeves are the top parts of socks, and her socks and panties (not pictured) are also made from socks.

She is made from socks too. Wink


I had no idea how to weft in doll hair. After a long time I decided I would give it a try.




Just right for a tea party or telling a secret to! Cheesy
