Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your reply!

The problem with a pre-existing egg shape is that I want a specific egg -- specifically this one: http://www.fiendle.com/images/cosplay_gott_dragonegg2.png

I made it out of clay first, but I just need to find something to...mold around it. Cast it? Is that the right word? So I will have the negative space to shape the bath bombs with!

And do you have the name of the "silicon mold thing" you mentioned? That sounds perfect!

Hello!

I don't know if this is the right forum, but I did a search for "molds" and couldn't find an answer.

I'd like to make Bath Bombs in a specific shape. I made that shape out of clay -- it's a dragon's egg  Now I needed to make the mold around it.

I tried a plaster mold from Michael's, but after I pushed the egg in halfway...I couldn't get the egg back out! I even greased it up with oil beforehand, but that sucker stayed in there.

There's got to be an easier way to do this, right? Should I buy one of those cheapo "My First Handprint" things, and just do both sides manually?

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Thank you!

6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Tetris silverware: Classy. on: January 09, 2010 09:21:58 PM
Okay, so I pretty much thought this was awesome, but the safety warnings got me thinking. I talked to my scientific-type family, and they were able to verify that Sculpey Polymer Clay will leach into silverware over time -- a warning found here http://74.125.155.132/search?q=cache:G3jTrLxQo9MJ:www.jaedworks.com/clayspot/polyclay-faq/basics.html+polymer+clay+leach&cd=4&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

The argument made a few posts (and years!) back was that you weren't eating directly off of the clay, true, but baked substances can make their way into silveware.

It's probably not going to make anyone drop dead, but, yeah...these may be best as decoration only.

I don't want to kill anyone's buzz, though, because they're totally beautiful and amazing!
7  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Buckbeak Mosaic from Harry Potter on: January 08, 2010 07:01:46 PM


This was my first foray into the world of mosaics! I cracked the glass myself with a hammer! I'd really like to get back into this, but I sold all my supplies when I moved states, and I don't know a good, cheap glass supplier in town. I'll have to keep my eyes out (with protective glasses covering them, of course).

It's Buckbeak from the Harry Potter series! It's just mounted on an inexpensive plastic serving tray. I had a lot of fun doing it, but I sort of need a whole room to do things like this or roommates begin to dislike you.

Materials used: glass shards, hammer to crack glass into smaller shards, grout, grout coloring, plastic tray, protective eyewear.

What I learned: Don't shove your hand into a box of glass! That makes blood happen. The more you knoooow!

Find a pleasing wool, and it will make life all the better. Sadly, it's usually the more expensive ones. Sad Sometimes I wish I could knit with gloves on, because the repetition makes my hands soooo dry.

Adding nothing to this but...such a cute idea! Hee hee! Surely they can be adapted to fit more things around the house...
10  COOKING / Dessert / Chess Pie on: January 08, 2010 06:56:00 PM
Dude, this pie is SO EASY and when you tell people the ingredients, no one will believe that they combine to form this deliciousness! The rumor on the street is that the strange name came from someone in the South asking what was in it, and a confused waiter mentioned "...It's jes' pie."

Chess Pie About an hour

cup butter
1 cups sugar
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbs Corn Meal
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
Unbaked pie shell

Cook an unbaked shell at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Immediately stop calling it unbaked.

Sift corn meal and sugar with a sifter. This step isn't ESSENTIAL essential, but it may end up tasting a lil grainy if it's not done.
Melt butter and let it cool
Mix.

Mix everything else and cook it at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
ENJOY!

Figure out what youre going to do with all that cornmeal.
