send them! while it's true that people might forget a thank you card you gave them, they most DEFINITELY will remember one you DIDN'T send them. they each spent time and money to honor your wedding, return the courtesy, even if it's late.
anybody else use this stuff? you paint onto already-glazed ceramics or porcelain (even metal!) and bake at 350 for an hour. so i buy plates, cups, whatever i can find on sale and paint them up. makes great gift-giving.
i really like it, but i'm curious to find out what other materials i can use to apply the paint. so far i've used sponges, brushes and q-tips, and i suppose i could rag it, too. but i want to be able to paint a pretty, smooth background color onto my pieces.
My grandmother was a seamstress for many many years. Once, she was hemming a chiffon dress (when she tells this story the word "chiffon" is said with such disdain it's hysterical) and totally zoned out. Not uncommon for someone who hems other people's clothes for ten hours a day. Anyway, the dress was sliding off the end of the table so what did she do? She reached for it. Right under the plunging needle. She says she sat there calmly looking at her thumb, now tethered to the sewing machine by the needle, right through the middle of her thumbnail.
The other woman who was working along side of her freaked out and started screaming. My grandmother said all she could think to say was "Take that damn dress off the table before I bleed all over it."
back in high school i made topiaries just like that for a stage production. but, we used green tissue paper and craft glue. it took for-freaking-ever.
we cut the various shades of green tissue into one or two inch squares, shaped them over the end of a pencil eraser, dipped them in glue and stuck them on the styrofoam. the end result has a nice, full, leafy look. they looked pretty cool from the audience, anyway.
i also helped make an entire field of red tissue paper "poppies" for the Wizard of Oz. yeah. never again.
