2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / The Eye of the Dragon on: February 16, 2011 01:01:58 PM
Stumbled upon this project online and HAD to give it a try. There was a tutorial for sale for $5 but I just kinda did it my own way and used their photo as inspiration. I used one of those cheapie wooden trinket boxes ($1.00 at AcMoore) and covered it. They eye is a flat bottomed glass aquarium stone (I drew an eye with sharpie on an index card and cut it to fit, glued it to the bottom). I used e-6000 to glue the paper to the glass, but it doesn't like the heat, and looks "cracked" under the glass, but other than that, I think it came out pretty darn good. I am going to give it to my son for his birthday, he had a bit of a dragon fetish.

4  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Fairy Embrace Etched Mirror on: February 03, 2011 06:51:22 PM
Glass etching is one of the easiest crafts one can do, in my opinion. Anything you can draw or trace onto some contact paper and cut out with a craft knife can be etched onto a mirror or piece of glass.
For a wedding gift for my sister in law, I etched this glass mirror.
Simply, I laid contact paper on the mirror, smoothing well to make sure no air was trapped underneath. Then I traced the fairy image from a printed image I found online (slightly altered to suit my taste), added the bride and grooms name and wedding date in my own handwriting, and cut it all out with an x-acto. After applying a nice thick coat of Armor Etch and waiting about 10 minutes, I washed my piece and removed the contact paper. Ta-Daaa!!!

Awesome job! Repainting furniture is my passion and you did a GREAT job on this. By BFF would cut her arm off for this piece, she is obsessed with magenta and black. Well done!

So I am artist... and a junk collector... and because of that my dear cousin has taken on the wonderful habit of unloading all her unwanted crap...err... i mean stuff, on me whenever I see her, which I absolutely love because there is often plenty of stuff I can upcycle. Last year she gave me this girly white and pink and yellow rocking horse. My daughter is 7. Too old for a rocking horse. My newborn is a boy, he didn't need a pink rocking horse. Well Christmas time came around.. again... and we were struggling for cash... again... when all of a sudden it came to me like a flash... like a vision. The boy has a jungle themed bedroom. He has a big giraffe, a huge elephant, a crocodile, a few monkeys, and no zebra. No zebra in a jungle themed room. This is just sad. After about an hour of rummaging through the basement I found that girly rocking horse and went nuts on it! Here are the before and after pics!







He loves his new zebra!

I was feeling a bit inspired during this last pregnancy, and while wistfully toying with some sculpey, I made figure of my own pregnant image. I liked her so much I made a baby for her. Then I liked THAT so much I got a little crazy and decided to make pregnant mamas of all ethnicities. Here they are. Mamas and babies. Each one has an eyehook in her back, so I got a little froggy and strung them on a mobile (which I don't have a pic of at the moment) but here they are. My girls. They aren't perfect, but I love them so much.
