Thats a great idea. With it being a box, could you use it to keep bookmarks etc. in too?

Thats a really clever idea.

When I read the title of this post, I had a fantastic image of you sat around chopping up all your ex-es stuff to make quilts, and then doing the traditional garbage bags full of stuff thrown out on the lawn scene and he looks at them in amazement as they're full of just the scraps you didnt use.

Its an awesome quilt, even if the story behind the material source didnt quite live up to my imagination.

Did you get that stone effect on the gargoyle by blending clay, or was it painted on afterwards? I LOVE that one. I have a room full of dragon-ey furniture type stuff which that style would work so well in.

Wow. I love that you managed to make something that is not just technichally edible, but looks (and sounds) nice enough that Im trying to figure out what would be an appropriate occasion to serve it.

The idea seems really original for the challenge too.

I have a whole stack of my favourite lolcats saved on my computer that I hoped to turn into some kind of jewellery, and I hadn't figured out how to do it yet. I love your idea.

Ooh, shiney. I think yours looks much nicer than the original one!

Could you try using a coat of your fixing spray for a preliminary seal, then a coat of clear nail polish, which should give you a pretty good seal before gluing.
Also, make sure you are sealing both sides and the edges to stop any moisture getting in, as it sounds from your experience that you have a particularly blury ink type.

I think I have found the one you meant by searching your link for "Graffiti bracelet".

It looks to me (no expert) that it has been made by cutting and shaping the underlying metal, heating it to bend, and melting the ends together.  Some kind of thick resin/enamel has been used to outline the edges, then the flourescent resin has been poured into the gaps. I dont work with resin (yet) so have no idea whether it is flexible enough that the bracelent could have been bent round after pouring, and if not then I dont know how you could get it to sit evenly on the round bracelet shape

If I was trying to make one of these for myself, I would think the easiest way to do it would be with polymer clay, although it may lack some of the smoothness of finish of the one on that site.
