251  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Geek Quilt on: September 01, 2012 03:55:43 PM
I think this has to be the most awesome quilt ever!  I love all of the super geeky yet awesome show and movie references.  I also love the border. 
252  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Using acrylic modling paste without colors becomming muddy? on: September 01, 2012 03:44:13 PM
So recently I have been experimenting with different acrylic mediums some of which have been a success, but others not so much. One of this biggest problems has been with using modeling paste.  I have been using liquitex light modeling paste, mixed with various colors, on canvas.  I love the awesome textural effect I have been able to get, but no matter what I seem to do the colors become muddy.  Even with mixing, on the canvas, no more and in often cases less than I would normal paint the color becomes muddy and just does not look good at all.  I had thought about painting over the modeling paste but then I do not know how the paint would cover "scratching" effect and dips and grooves, would it still be possible to get a nice blending effect.  If that would not achieve a good result is there a way to blend the colors without the colors mixing together too much?

Very awesome doctor who scarf and I really cool and unique take on the motifs.  I love how you included multiple aspects of the show into one pace.  I also love the "larger than life" size.

This is one of the most touching things I have heard.  I am sorry for your loss and it takes a lot of courage and strength to find a healing and amazing way to deal with a loss.  Your light is truly beautiful in every way.
256  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: used Color Catchers on: August 31, 2012 09:17:03 PM
I don't know if you have found a use for the color catchers yet or if your still looking, but I saw a tutorial the other day for flowers made from dried baby wipes. http://embellished-dreams.blogspot.com/2010/05/handmade-flower-pin-flower.html

Since the color catchers are already colored from your clothes you probably wouldn't even have to dye them.  Other fabric flower tutorials would work as well, and you would probably get a really cool tie dye effect

I know I'm super late on commenting, but I came across this thread while looking for something to make my bestie as a bday present, and this is perfect.

Thanks for the tutorial  Grin
