Details of swap:

Your mission will be to find something you have in common with your partner and craft to that. Maybe you dig the same TV show, or types of books.  Maybe your hair is the same color, maybe you both just love Mexican food, or you have the same number of kids.  Perhaps you both play an instrument, or both love to run.  Whatever it is, you can craft something that has to do with your commonalities.  

This swap is for 2 small items and 1 medium item -OR- 2 mediums (whichever works best for whatever inspiration strikes you) that apply to your commonality.  Give your partner as much information about yourself as you feel comfortable sharing! You and your partner DO NOT have to find the same commonality! This will be a great way to "meet" new people and make some new crafty friends. Please post in the thread at least once per week, and when you post your pics, make sure to tell us what you and your partner had in common!

Prompt:  Big Time
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points: Community, Epic!
Project Name: The Laboratory of the Nefarious Dr. Hedwith
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451875.msg5436484#msg5436484
Brief Description: It's finished! It's finished! My fan art for Dr. Potter's Medicine Show is finally done. I had so much fun putting it all together that I'm not sure if I'm happy that it's finished, or sad that I don't need to putter about in there anymore. It's hanging in the Mom Cave, above my computer monitor. I'm loving it!

There are so many little bits and pieces in here, and they all took a ridiculously long time to put together. That little mouse took about 2 hours all by himself. Yikes.

For more detailed pics, check out the link and be prepared for lots of blathering.

6  The Laboratory of the Nefarious Dr. Hedwith (gobs and gobs of pics) in Completed Projects by bunny1kenobi on: March 17, 2017 10:02:42 PM
So, I have been working on this little lab for quite a while. TheMistressT's honey wrote a novel called Dr. Potter's Medicine Show, many of you have heard about it. Well, I freaking loved it!  And this is an homage to it. My very own fan art! And I'm ridiculously proud of it, so you'll have to put up with some "proud parent" pics. Sorry, not sorry.  Wink

Here's the finished product:



As you can see, as the project progressed, I moved things around...



Ok, so back to the completed lab. Let me show you around (she said with pride)!

Here's Dr. Hedwith's worktable. He's been making some notes in this alchemy book. There's a lantern for a little extra light, a scale for precise measurement of nasty bits, and a mortar and pestle for grinding said nasty bits. There's a handy syringe, waiting on just the right victim patient, and a large bottle of green mystery stuff on the floor.  I'm a big fan of the fancy clock on the wall and the esoteric hand, too.


Oops, one of Dr. Hedwith's patients who didn't make it. Like all good scientists, he's going to lop the head off and keep it for future study.


Ah. lots of juicy bits! A jar of eyes, and a jar of bones. (Ingredients for experiments, or souvenirs?) I wonder what he's got locked up in that little box that Mr. Skull is resting upon? Lots of potions and icky concoctions, and lots of books, too. Never let it be said that Dr. Hedwith is not a learned man! Candles, scissors, a test tube rack. The mouse who lives under the bookshelf has made an appearance for a photo op.  


There's a bureau and an apothecary chest in the corner, just beneath an interesting alchemical chart. The good doctor is letting a little mail pile up. I wonder if any of it is from Lyman?


And, of course, this is where he keeps the "big guns":

Yes, I'm pretty tickled that the drawers open.  Cheesy

Another little shelf of potions and another interesting box, along with some more alchemical reference material.


And the reason for the lab in the first place - the dangerously addictive Chock-A-Saw Sagwa Tonic. Here's a case ready to be delivered to Dr. Potter.


On the outside of the side walls:


The top:


And the end credits (you made it through the whole thing, thank you)!


I made this just for me, and I am pretty excited about it!

Thanks for taking the time to check it out!

Special thanks to craftylittlemonkey for her contributions to the cause, and for lots of crafty support from TheMistressT, Gozer, Chr1stchan, and the rest of the Nerd Games crew!

He does look happy in that shirt! Yay! And I'd all but forgotten that Scooby shirt, RBR- so funny!

Ok, I need to ask your advice on this. As you all know, I've been working on my lab, and I'm getting fairly close to completion (hoping I'll be able to post it early next week, maybe even this weekend! Pretty excited!) I'm wanting to post it as a Big Time project with Epic bonus points. However, in contemplation, I'm reminded that I've posted many of the components of the lab in separate posts. I know that for a research project, that would not be allowed. What's the consensus for Big Time with Epic?

Just in case, here's a progress shot (I've actually done quite a bit since this pic was taken, but I want there to be a few surprises  Grin):

Weddings are so fun! It sounds like you are making great progress!

Those rugs look super cushy and easy to care for. I bet they'll be perfect!

I made more teeny stuff! Squee!



I also posted a tutorial, if anyone's got a hankering...

Prompt:  March Brave New World
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points: Brain Power, Community, Engineering
Project Name: Teeny flasks
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451834.0
Brief Description: I wanted tiny flasks for my lab, but they are crazy expensive to buy! So I started trying to figure out how I could make them. At lunch the other day, I looked at my straw in my cup, and as I pinched it a little it created this little flask shape and the idea was born! I posted a tutorial (above) for anyone who has a hankering for making stuff like this. They were definitely mass produced!
