1  Beaded Animals in Beads: Discussion and Questions by missingastitch on: December 09, 2015 04:04:10 AM
I am looking to make some 3d realistic animals, but am in need of some guidance.  I am not looking to work with pony beads and those flat key chain/lanyard things.  I want to make something like this:



I am a very visual and hands on person and I am having trouble with 1) figuring out what stitches are used and 2) how the whole "3d" thing actually works.  How to make animal "skin" and get it to lay in the right shape.

Is the animal strictly beaded?  I've seen artist out there where they use mixed media, combining fabric and wire as a frame and beading on top of that.  The question is "how"?

I've tried youtube and really only come up with "cutesy" beaded animals.  Glass bead animals and flat stitched animals.  Nothing realistic looking.

2  Snowflake ornament in Winter Holidays by missingastitch on: November 29, 2011 05:03:22 PM
I made these snowflake ornaments. They're basically a wooden snowflake, painted white, and embellished with little do-dads. Add a ribbon and BAM, quick ornaments!  They'd look pretty as magnets as well.

3  Itsy Bitsy Spider in Halloween Decor and Parties by missingastitch on: September 25, 2011 05:12:23 PM

The spider is not anatomically correct, it only has 6 legs.   I tried to fit 8 in and it just got bulky.

Tutorial is on my blog.

Here is a new one, a round paper mache box, snow flake on top and sliver gems on the sides.  Sorry for the photos haven't figured out a way to take a good pic of the box just yet.




I am not sure if I like the glossy look with the navy blue.  It just seems to make it so dark...I might try a matte modge podge later on if I decide to continue to make 'em...dunno just yet.

I love 'em!  I was so excited about 'em that i made 2 of my own!!!  The glue is still wet on the stems which are brown packaging paper.  And I chose black thread to contrast the orange, I personally like how it looks.

Here is the side shot of the box:  It closes magnetically.

9  Snow Flake Box - Top (Some Images) in Winter Holidays by missingastitch on: August 26, 2011 04:45:57 PM
Here is the top of the snow flake box I am making.  It is just the top, but the bottom will just be the navy blue color.  The snow flake is painted white with some diamond dust and blue gem stones as accents.

Enjoy!

10  Oh Christmas Tree - Box?! (IMG Heavy) in Winter Holidays by missingastitch on: August 26, 2011 04:16:51 PM
Here is a bigger design of something I've made on magnets before.  I think it turned out well.  It is a heart shaped box on it's humps that has been turned into a Christmas Tree.  Next time I need some glossy Mode Podge (all I had was some wood glue, which it's basically all the same, but something glossy might look better).  I am working on a second design with a snow flake instead of a tree.

Just curious, would it be something that would interested you as a gift/item to buy?  (Hope I am following TOS by asking this, I have no shop for it and am not selling them.  If not please delete.)

Enjoy!

(Oh the top side is the lid and the bottom is just all green, I'll grab a side shot.)
