I've been making wooden bangle bracelets on a lathe for awhile now. Lately I've been experimenting with different things to make the bracelets more dynamic and interesting. These bracelets were turned on the lathe. Then the lines were burned in with a wood burning tool. Then I hand painted and sealed them. I think they're kind of neat. Does anyone know of a good shiny sealer for wood and acrylic paint? I used a polyacrylic sealer but it makes white paint turn brownish. Thanks for looking!
It's been a long time since I've posted anything on Craftster. Like whole years... But I'm trying to get better about sharing my work so here goes. I'm posting these dolls on this board because I feel like they're more dolls than crochet. But they are crocheted using the free spirit doll pattern. I made Circe first and she currently has no clothes because I decided to make the other doll, Cinder, for my girlfriend for Christmas. Thanks for looking!
I've been doing some bikram yoga lately so I started looking online for the special yoga towels that everyone seems to have. Now I don't have $50+ to spend on a towel. Does anyone know what these things are made of to make them worth that much. Or is it just expensive because it's for yoga. Any ideas on what I could make them out of? It's just a rectangle of absorbent fabric. Some of them have little nubs on the back to keep them from slipping. Puff paint might work for that. I really want to make one of these. It can't be that hard. I just can't bring myself to spend that much on a towel.
that's a really good idea. I'm against white onesies because they get so dirty so fast but perhaps I could do it to some of my son's other clothes so he can still use them in the winter. Owen is so cute and stylish
