1  Shrink Plastic Chairs in 1:18 Scale in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Jaie on: May 25, 2011 07:12:06 AM


Click for a slideshow.

So I got creative over the weekend. These are 1:18 scale shrink plastic chairs. I regret not taking pictures of the process, but I will be doing so.

The chairs are drawn out flat, in 1:6 scale (Playscale) and then are decorated, in one case, with a French provincial-ish design, the other is flat out Hello Kitty love in the form of Charmmy Kitty.


The other two are a frosted version, that was actually the very first chair, and a clear chair that I am calling a mini-mock Louis Ghost Chair.

After the shrinking process, I quickly wrap the still hot around a can on Avon powder. Semi cooled, I then would pull together the center front. If you look close you see that I'll have to glue the center front together. I'm currently debating glue of choice. I'm torn between super glue and beading glue. I've also hesitated on using my glue gun but an experiment with the very first chair which was a black ladder back. The glue just didn't hold. Super glue might melt the plastic is my concern. So we'll see what happens.

On a side note, the black SP is utterly terrible with the curved chair. With the ladder back it worked pretty well.

The CK chair, has a seat for it, although in a couple photos using it as a table top for the hot pink legs. It's actually the seat to the chair. It's a hair off in measurements, but I'll fill that in with a glue or something and Sharpie it.

So I made these yesterday, I think they turned out pretty decent considering the burns I acquired.

3  My metal fairies in Completed Projects by Jaie on: April 11, 2011 10:59:55 AM
I did these over the winter but I'm just starting to thaw out and catch up on all my sharing.

These are fairy figures that I cast using model metal and a mold. Two different poses and you can make the figures into charms or magnets.
