881  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Wall Art Swap 3 CLOSED! Send Out 11 Feb on: February 03, 2011 10:14:19 PM
not in this swap, just nosing in, cause i've been watching y'all (missed my chance to join, living vicariously)..... if you're sending a stretched canvas, put a sheet of newsprint, tracing paper, or plastic on either side (sticking it in a garbage bag will work), then several layers of thick cardboard or a sheet of foam on each side, sandwich-style.... then if you really wanna be safe a layer of bubble wrap around the whole thing, then slip it all into a box cut to fit snug. it's mighty tempting to put it in a big envelope, but you'll regret it when some dumba** at the post office sets a box on it and punches a hole in your canvas.  Angry  OR... if you used a flexible paint, the easiest, safest, cheapest way to go is to turn the picture over, use a butter knife or flat-head screwdriver to gently pry the staples out, and remove the canvas from the stretchers. lay plastic or newsprint down, then lay the painting on it face down. if you're careful, you should be able to disassemble the frame itself. if you don't want to, or you break the frame, you can buy to-be-assembled stretcher bars at a hobby store for a couple bucks a piece. stack your bars together, and wrap them in a layer of bubble wrap. then set them at one end of the painting and use them as a roller to roll the painting (and plastic) up on! wrap the whole affair in a couple layers of bubble wrap, then in either some stiff brown paper or drop 'em into a mailing tube! if the receiver doesn't wanna re-assemble it themselves (pretty easy to do.... if you have a pair of pliers and a staple gun) they can take it to a hobby store in their neighborhood and get it stretched for probably under ten bucks. I know it all sounds a bit finicky, but safe is better! i used to work in the registrar's office in a museum in manhattan - packing and shipping artwork was one of my main jobs. if anybody else has questions or wants me to explain how to re-stretch a canvas, gimme a shout!  Wink

hahaaha.... yeah i've been walking around grumbling THIS IS SOUTH ARKANSAS!!! it's FEBRUARY!!! where's SPRING ALREADY!!!!!!   since we generally get one month of properly chilly weather all year and may go years without snow.... the 2" of snow we had a few weeks ago, that stuck around for 48 hrs, and the maybe 8 or so times it's gone below freezing overnight, and the light flurries we had today for a half hour or so makes this a pretty cold winter for us.... but then i watch the news and listen to y'all talk, and realize i need to shut my mouf and count my blessings!!!  i'm just hoping the snow and ice they're predicting for us tonight blow over.... i'm fully booked with appointments tomorrow and after the slow christmas we've had i need to make some MONEY!!! (because i'm building myself a craft area and i wanna buy some new countertops!  Wink )

I'm not familiar with Men in Tights, but I LOVE the design of the graphic! And I know some friends who would probably crap their pants over this as a t-shirt, lol

it's the greatest! i especially like when he starts to sing real loud and she screams, and when he dips her and she drops her tiara, then tries to play it off.... and the backup singers, and the spectators with their popcorn on the cob, and, and, and..... well, i guess you've just gotta see it! =)
