3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / spray painting jeans on: February 20, 2010 01:52:00 PM
I imagine that spray paint and denim doesnt work/ast too well, so i was thinking of alternatives...

I want to spray paint through a stencil, so the coverage isnt 100%, and preferably i would like the finished image to look a little faded.

so far all i have come up with is maybe using fabric paint, diluting it to get the faded look, and then spritzing it on with a spray bottle.

good idea? or disaster waiting to happen?
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / can you create a pattern using wood stain? on: January 30, 2010 05:55:10 AM
 I have a chest of drawers that i got from a second hand shop for really cheap, but its in desperate need of a makeover.

I want to do the top in leopard print, but dont want to use paint as it would be too garish - i want it to be a bit more subtle, so if i do the top in a light wood color, and painted on the pattern using a darker colour stain, and left it to stain for a few hours,  would it work ?

ve never used wood stain before, so any tips/advice would be great
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / make me a pin up swap on: January 01, 2010 04:39:08 PM
So, ive seen all the burlesque-y pinup type swaps, and all the stuff is lovely, but how about a swap where you actually turn your partner into a pinup girl, rather than just sending her the accessories needed ?

each person would receive a photo (or several, up to the individual) of their partner, and then its your job to draw/sketch/paint/whatever your partner as if she were a pinup and send the finished picture

simple swap, low postage, potentially fantastic results...

would anyone wanna do this?
6  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / 50's kitchen swap, 1 angel FOUND on: December 06, 2009 12:13:17 PM
I have one 50's kitchen swapper who really needs an angel!

thread ; http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=312934.0

gallery ; http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=318941.0

She has been waiting for months, as her original partner flaked, and then the angel I found for her flaked on us also, so she really needs looking after.

Pantsafari-

Favourite colours:Teal and red! My kitchen is mainly red, cocacola, and ive got some pretty eccelctic things on display to make things interesting.

Colours you dont like: i dont dislike any colors, but id prefer to have things crafted more toward my kitchen colors.

Favourite fabrics: anything easy to wash! 

Fabrics you dont like: is this even possible?

Favourite patterns/symbols: i adore 50s barkcloth patterns with the fun boomerang and geometric shapes.

Favourite 50s theme (kitsch,glam,hollywood etc..): ill go with just about anything, i dont want to limit creativity.

What sort of kitchen-y items are you hoping for in particular?:  I would love some decorative hand towels, maybe some hot pads, or a cute apron...or something decorative would be cool, i have two shelves above my sink full of knicknacks that could use some friends, or some fridge magnets......honest ly, im not super picky!

anything else you want to add?:  Im so excited about this!! 1950's kitch is amazing.


earn some craft karma and help out! (the faster the turnaround on this package the better, ideally 2 weeks)

Only volunteer if you mean to finish what you start - she has been messed around enough with this swap already, and we both need someone reliable.
