What's that tool your using called? I can't make out the writing on it?

It's called a Styrocutter Plus. I got it at Michael's for a little over 20 bucks

This is awesome!
Love the simple "straps", they're perfectly elegant yet don't distract from the epic "fabric".

Is the dress lined? I can't imagine that those tabs would make for a very comfy gown!

I wore a slip underneath because of all the gaps between the tabs. It's actually not too bad comfort wise, unless you're sitting.

I spent two years on this baby. On and off of crocheting pop tabs together in a chainmaille pattern (6,075 of them). The local newspaper took pictures of me and my dress.

I even made my friend/date a matching tie Cheesy


I also got to hear a nice little clink with every step <3



My prom was actually last year, but i never got around to posting it. oops.

Wonderful. Must have taken you ages to do all those bricks.  What paint do you use on styrofoam?

I spray painted them with a matte white, and then used brown and red water color for the brick color. The nice thing about the water color is that it doesn't paint evenly so the brick looks more authentic. Though even after it dries it kinda has this sticky feeling. I'd probably put some kind of clear coat over it if it was going to be handled often.

Yes, it is lovely - did you add any kind of clear coat or varnish to it afterwards?

No i didn't. Though i might at some point

I made these little ones for a class project, and it turned out to be a lot of fun



I even remembered to take some in progress shots! Cheesy

this is the Styrofoam heated carving thing i used to carve the bricks out


i didnt have styrofoam, so i peeled the paper off some foamboard





some distressing

then i cut out windows, made stairs, and used those home depot granite and wood samples for the detailing and doors.


i also made some hedges and railings.

This is my first poly clay project. I'm pretty excited, i think it came out pretty well.
I bought some black clay and some metallic acrylic paint. I painted it before i baked it. The internet had left me unsure of whether that would be ok or not, but it seemed fine to me.

i carved a little stencil flower  Cheesy
