I'm sad because I thought more people would be interested in this. If there is someone that would like to do a personal swap with me, please message me! This is the first one I made.

I started my first last night. Here's the progress so far. I stuck it in the oven to cure.

You can use this type of paint which is only .79 cents a color when it ISN'T on sale. I haven't bought Sculpey in a while but I think I got them for $1 each on sale? The great thing is you can paint the clay any color you need so you don't have to buy a bunch of clay colors. I just bought a new set of paint brushes for under $10 with a 40% off coupon at Michael's. They have a lot of great sales coming up for the holidays. If you catch sales you can definitely create a custom for less than $20, Pop included.

4  DIY Vinyl Figures in New Swap Theme Ideas by h-chan on: October 17, 2015 04:36:46 PM


Would anyone be interested in doing a custom vinyl swap? I think it would be really fun. It would be based on your swap partners wishlist. You can buy the blanks on eBay for about $10-12 each. There are a bunch of how to YouTube vids for mixed media, best materials to use, etc. It was originally open to Fubko only but I'm opening it to any vinyl figures of a similar size.

9  Poncho swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by h-chan on: September 17, 2011 01:38:26 PM
Would anyone be interested in doing a poncho swap? I was thinking this is a great time since it isn't quite cold yet and it isn't quite "the holiday season" so craft stores have more stuff in stock and aren't as busy. Plus if you're sewing, they don't take too long to make.

I was really thinking about a fleece geeky/nerdy themed poncho swap, but I would be willing to leave that requirement out if it will attract more swappers.

You can sew, knit or crochet and I will match partners up as best as I can based on what they want. Materials and style can also be your choice. Upcycling is cool too. Whatever floats your boat!

Anyone in on this? I'm thinking sign-ups starting October 1, closing Oct 15 and send by Nov 17? I don't know how long it takes to knit or crochet one so let me know if more crafting time is needed.

10  Super Wall Art in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by h-chan on: September 15, 2011 08:36:59 PM
I troll my local Dollar Trees pretty frequently to see what new goods they have and what one location has that another doesn't. One day, I came across this unpainted DIY frame box with 9 "boxes". Each box is 2x2". As a lot of things do, it sat in my crafting room until the appropriate project came along for it. I created it for an SO swap as my partners SO loves Superman and comic books. I picked 9 DC characters that had their own logos (surprising how many of them don't) and painted each box with the primary colors from each of their costumes. Next I googled the logo images, scaled them down to 2x2", printed them out on glossy paper and pasted each one into the appropriate box. Acrylic paints and mod podge were used.

I think it came out well despite the fact that I choose the colors for each box as I was painting. I did my best to keep similar colored boxes from being right next to each other. You'll notice Robin and Flash have yellow walls on the left. I literally painted myself into a corner on that one! Flash was the last box to be painted and before I realized the double yellow issue, it was too late. Oh well  Undecided

I think this would be a great gift for any comic book fan young or old! Plus its an easy and cheap way to dress up their room  Wink All angles are pictured. (Its hard to see but the roof of the Wonder Woman box is metallic gold.)
