Beautiful work!  I love it!!!  I am partial to fork art (looking at it, not making it) , so you aren't alone in your obsession!

I like your lamination pieces!  Especially Alice Cooper.

For the bleeding, encase the image in packing tape, it will take care of it.

Good tip - I'll try that!

Have your tried spraying with "fixativ" I think it's a Krylon product. I think if you seal the back first. Dry. Then the front. Maybe twice w/ the edges too. Let me know how it works.

I'll try that too.

hah! dont mind at all! im glad someone liked it enough to try and make their own! i feel so special!

Oh good, glad you don't mind!

Ooops!  I posted this in the wrong forum category.  Can it be moved to questions and comments???

37  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Diamond Glaze or doming resin? on: October 28, 2008 07:52:20 AM
I'm not sure I like diamond glaze that much.  It is easy to use, but sometimes seems slightly milky.  And it definitely is not super hard, which sort of annoys me.  Anyone else agree or maybe I am putting it on too thick?

Has anyone here worked with doming resin?  I saw that on Rio Grand and thought that might work better on my Dog Tags for People.  As a key chain, those get pretty trashed with Diamond Glaze.  Maybe resin would be more durable.

Finally, is there really a difference between pour-on type resin and doming resin?  Can you get the pour-on to dome slightly?  I am trying to avoid buying yet another product to try...I already have the pour on.

This is a Boston Terrier and it is from an original art piece that I created:


Resin - thanks Photochickskds - I saw your pieces with text and it gave me the idea.  Hope you don't mind...




Ruby in resin - some image bleeding...annoying!  Can't figure out if it is best to use photo paper or regular paper with my ink jet printer.  I used Modge Podge too and it still bled.

I made my second batch of resin stuff plus a bunch of other pendants for sale at a recent pug event.  It was a great success!  I sold all the pug pieces and donated 50% of my sales to PUG RESCUE!  I had lots of fun and will be making more for the next pug event (Pugtacular in N.California) in December. 

Let me know your thoughts or if you see things I could do differently or try.  Thanks!

40  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: broke as heck, ramen recipes? on: October 26, 2008 09:12:14 PM
I used to want to write a cookbook on ramen recipes!  My favorite easy ones (cheap too):

- Cooked normally, add slice of cheese in near end of cooking to melt into gooey-ness
- Overcook and pretty much boil out all liquid, add cheese as above for more of a gooey mac&cheese effect

- My favorite - great HANGOVER cure!  Hot & Sour soup on the cheap and easy.  Cook normally but with extra broth and maybe an extra bit of bouillon from either another pack of ramen (or buy separate).  Once cooked add vinegar and hot sauce.  Yum!
