1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / My first drop spindle attempts. on: November 07, 2010 04:59:10 PM
so, here it is...all, 18 or 20 yards of it. LOL
Its somewhere between a thick and a thin worsted.
Its been sitting around for a couple years, so its gotten a little fuzzy from handling.

I've seen this beautiful super coily yarn and i wonder what sorts of projects people have used it for? I have a skein of gorgeous purple pink and deep blue super coily thick and thin, and its been sitting on the shelf for so long, wondering what to be.

Might consider putting NSFW in the title. I clicked, to see a lipstick cozy, and instead i got a big green cock and balls.

I just went to the website of the professional photographers images, and they are drastically different from the ones posted...
The glow is gone, and we can see the roundness of your flesh. '

Thats what made me think you must have enhanced the contrast is all...

Wow, that looks amazing! The effect is astonishing. And you must be very brave to go out like that!

Please ignore the people who accuse you of computer manipulation. Sometimes people can't stand the idea that someone else can do something they can't, so they need to cast aspersions Sad Earlier this year someone accused me of using a computer transfer because they couldn't believe that I'd painted it, it's sad really. People here do plenty of amazing things I could never do, but just because *I* can't do something, doesn't mean that these talented people can't!

Calm down dear. I wasn't accusing her of anything, I was asking an honest question. I work with photographs for a living, and I've never seen anything like this before. There are no cast or core shadows anywhere on her whole body, which even paint wouldnt take away. It looks like a piece of paper cut out and pasted to the background. Its a strange effect, and thats why I asked. It has nothing to do with my inability to create are...LOL

It was not computer done, but I'm flattered that you think so. It was all airbrushed, and it took three hours to do, not counting the time it took to make the leather top and loincloth. The tail was a furry costume mouse tail wrapped in latex and then painted to match my body.

Its just...the loin cloth looks so computer'd you know? and there are no shadows or rounding on the arms, legs or torso. Even airbrushed, the body would show some form. it looks quite flat, which is what made me think it was touched up in photoshop.
