1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Salt Dough on: January 18, 2011 10:51:18 AM
Just out of curiosity. I've been thinking about making a batch of salt dough, but I wasn't very sure how stiff, and well it would set. I'd like to possibly do some figure, or bust sculpting, but I'm afriad it might be too wet, and will just slowly head south once I set it.

   Any pointers with using salt dough would be RAAR grr ugggh, because I can only find tutorials for Christmas ornaments, and flat projects, which is not exactly what I have in mind for it.

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Raven with bloody heart needlework on: November 28, 2010 02:54:47 PM
Wow, there are so many really good needleworks on here right now! I feel inadequate showing my work on here! You guys rock!

Anyways, I drew out the concept art for this piece, and decided to do a small sewing piece on it.

I'm sorry, I know the heart is most likely not anatomically correct, but I tried.  Cry

The fill color on the raven was acheieved with watercolor pencils, and some water of course. Smiley I know it's most likely not a permanent fix, but I'm not planning on running this through the washing machine anytime soon.

Thanks for looking! Comments, arguments, and hugs are always welcomed!  Cheesy

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Flapper purse on: October 24, 2010 06:42:30 PM
  Okay craftster, don't take me literal on my subject title, unfortunatley you're not going to find a 1920's fringe, or beaded purse made from this lady.

I wish  Cry

However, I did come across these very cute buttons that looked flapper-esque, and decided to sit down on my Sunday night and crank out a quick purse. The dots you see are actually brads that are usually used in office supplies. They were black and white brads, and I thought they'd work out nicely for embellishments.

It also doubles as a brain protector! Very effective!  Wink

Thanks to my hubby Paul for his fabulous modeling job.

And, thank-you for stopping by and looking!!  Cheesy

 I'm glad the tut was somewhat useful!  Cheesy
5  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Day of the dead romantic couple **eat never dies** W/ attack!! on: September 20, 2010 07:54:57 AM
" They that eat beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies."

  Hey everyone! I found a really RAAR grr ugggh attack for these guys in a craft magazine, and HAD to try them out. I'm a nerd for the Dia de los muertos thing. I wanted to share my creations and give a brief attack below the pictures.

Now, for the attack.

** Hot glue gun
** Skeleton heads
** Ceramic figures
** Texturing agent, or textured spray paint
** Acrylic paints
** Fabric scraps, seed beads, misc. items for embellishment

1)  I went down to my local dollar tree and invested in these little couples, and some skeleton heads.

2.)  Well, I didn't have a dremel tool that would easily take their heads off, so I had to chisel and hammer their heads off. (Remember your safety goggles! Smiley )

3.) After their heads were decapitated I used the skeleton heads and hot-glued them. For the trickier heads that wouldn't easily set on the shoulders, I had to insert a tiny nail at the base of the skeleton head, and then hot-glue the nail to the opening on the figurine.

4.) Well, the figurines I invested in would not easily sand down due to the glaze used on them, so I had to work around it by getting some white textured spray paint to coat it down with. **Adding texture also gives the couple a nice gritty vintage look.

5.) After your romantic couples are assembled, and in place, then paint, hot glue and embellish away!  Cheesy

Well everyone, thanks for taking the time to check out my things! If you have any questions feel free to post, and comments and critiques are ALWAYS welcomed! Smiley

Well, Poo! My little sparrow clasp fell off on the wallet. Sad
  Ha ha... I'm not surprised about the handles. My sewing machine bobbin ran out, and I had to try and hand sew it.  Roll Eyes

   I'm glad you and your daughter liked it! I had fun making it!  Cheesy

I just had my first unicorn zombie apocalypse and now I'm addicted.

I remember seeing the Shaun of the Dead chainswarm a while ago, and LOVED IT.

I'm totally game for another Pegg & Posse unicorn zombie apocalypse!  Smiley

those 3 items are so ghoulish!! I eat the puppet!! How big is the purse??

   The purse is around the size of a clutch purse. I eat smaller purses! That's all I have. Smiley

I just got home from a wedding, and had a nice little package waiting for me when I arrived!  Got some RAAR grr ugggh goods...mrs_christopher rocks!!!

My camera is totally dead, so I will get her all charged up tonight and post my pics tomorrow.

I'm glad you got everything! Cheesy
