I just got a lesson in stamp carving last weekend.  I can appreciate the work that went into these.  Good job, you!

2473  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Meet Our 2Q2012 Home Sweet Home Featured Member - craftewoman! on: July 07, 2012 04:31:09 AM
We've been inspired by her artistic and clever solutions to home repairs.  We're pleased to announce the 2Q2012 Home Sweet Home featured member is craftewoman!

Your "Bone" replacement faucet handles are such a clever solution to a common problem.  What was the biggest challenge in making them?
The biggest challenge was making them the same size and shape. I started with aluminum foil as an armature, and was able to get them the right shape and size, but then as I added the clay they became too long, and I had to cut off the already baked clay and reform and add to it. I think if I were to do it again, I'd sacrifice some of the clay and use it as a two part mold. Making them look like bone was the resolution to them being less than perfect in shape.

Your Legend of Zelda mural was an adorable surprise, how was it received?
I am told by her brother that she screamed and laughed when she walked into the room. When I asked her about how she liked it her eyes lit up and she smiled, saying that she loved Zelda.

What advice would you give to someone contemplating painting a mural?
Make a smaller version of what you want to make on the wall first, and then use large pieces of paper to draw the main subject matter on and then transfer with carbon paper onto the wall. There is an easier option of using an overhead projector, but I didn't have one of those laying around!

Your arched doorway repair, From Pow to WOW!, is so pretty.  Where did you get the inspiration?
I used Pinterest to pin several carvings that I liked, whether they were architectural features or just carvings. I stumbled upon an article about how to make polymer clay look like wood, and I had my answer. The "carvings" didn't have to be very detailed, and the cruder they were, the more convincing they were that they were actually carved from wood, rather than sculpted from clay.

What is your favorite project on Craftster that's made by someone else?
There are so many inspired artisans that display their work here that it's difficult to choose, but one that has always stood out in my mind was the tree corset.

On what other Craftster boards can we find items that you've posted?
I make a lot of dolls, so, the dolls and toys board is filled with my work and even some patterns that I've shared. I also cook gluten free, so, the cooking board has some stuff.

That's a crafty wall!  It would be my favorite part, too!

Yay!  I'm so happy it fits the bill of what you wanted to receive for your husband.  I couldn't send him goodies and not include something for you, too.  Grin  I hope you'll continue swapping, Harlan.  It's just too much fun!

Having seen those fabrics before they were used to make this bowl, I find it fascinating how different the finished product comes out.  Love your choices, HSG!
