2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / removing sticker gunk from terra cotta on: March 25, 2016 03:51:26 PM
a friend suggested acetone.  I have acetone based nail polish remover.  it worked!  and it didn't even stain the terra cotta.  so maybe I can just leave this here as a tip for anyone else who may have this issue.  Smiley

so I bought a terra cotta pot and saucer to make an item I've had on Pinterest for a while now, and unfortunately the company that makes them felt it was necessary to use the stickiest stickers known to man for their barcode stickers.  I tried peeling it off, but we all know how that went.  so I tried Goo Gone.  BIG.  MISTAKE.  it did allow me to remove the sticker, BUT, not only did it begin to soak into the saucer, it left behind sticker gunk.  now I'm afraid that my paint won't stick plus I don't want there to be visible sticker gunk lumps.  any suggestions on how to get that stuff off?

and if you're wondering, the bottom of the pot won't be visible, so I'm not worried about that sticker.  however, the bottom of the saucer WILL be visible.  makes you wonder what I'm making doesn't it...   Wink

thanks for the tips, FG.  there is a little place (by little I mean the store itself is kinda small, but they have at least 3 locations that I know of) that sells fruits, veggies, juices, etc. that they grow and produce themselves.  they're known for their peaches and peach products (jam, juice, salsa, etc.), but they sell lots of other stuff too.  they may just have honey and I didn't see it because I was just there for one thing that time I went; blackberry cider.  yummm...

well, your pin came from her Flicker account.  but she used the same username there that she did here.  Tongue  I looked at your pin, looked at mine, and the names were the same, so that's how I knew they were they same person.  Cheesy

thanks guys.  ♥

and I've heard of people using raw honey like that.  it sounds like it could really have helped me.  kinda late now probably, and I don't know where to get raw honey in my area, so I'd have to look into it anyway.  Tongue

hey all, I'm still alive...barely.  when I went on my little crafting spree, I was at the beginning of a cold.  well, I'm not sure when I got over that cold because at the same time, I was dealing with allergies.  so now the cold's gone, but my allergies are acting up.  I'm tired all the time, I can't breathe, my head feels like it's stuffed with cotton, I can't hear, and I can't always see well.  so I'm in no place to craft at the moment.  I've been looking at things and thinking about starting something, but then I get tired and change my mind.  I was even at a craft store on Tuesday and only managed to spend $4.55 because I wanted to buy stuff that caught my eye...but then the idea that had started fizzled out.  of course the alcohol and allergy meds probably weren't helping (it was my birthday and I had a thingy of sangria.  I was also not driving).  the things I did buy were kinda basic supplies; a couple of simple little frames for smaller cross stitch projects, another bottle of paint in a color that I already have but I know I'll need two for the project I need it for, and a fat quarter of candy corn fabric to use for the Teesha Moore patch photo album cover I want to make.  I'll reappear with a project at some point, hopefully soon.  until then, I'm lurking and looking at things others are posting here and on the site in general.  keep up the good work!  ♥

love it!!!  I've always loved the soot sprites.  they're just too cute!

also, that hoop was created by fellow Craftsterer loveandasandwich!  I got very confused when I saw her hoop on my Pinterest hoopla board thinking I had somehow stepped into the future at some point and pinned your hoop.  turns out it was hers!  lol
