21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Junker Jane Style Doll Swap, sign ups CLOSED; send by Jan 18 on: December 19, 2012 11:35:43 AM
I just got Leslieshappyheart's message about needing to post here at least once a week - oops!  I have been in contact with my partner several times.  I have taken copious notes on what I might make make for her, both for the doll and for the extra item.  However, currently I am working on my white elephant gift for this Saturday.  What can I say, I must finish two sets of nipple pasties for the weekend, so I can see who will be shocked at the party  Shocked

I'm beginning to feel like a small-time crafter in a group of mixed media artists.  Y'all are talking about cohesive design elements and organizing your scrap stash.  I haven't pulled out the first piece of fabric for this, but I know where my jar of instant coffee is.

I have been busy working on making fabric bags of a desiccant for drying out my sweaty workout gear, ha ha!  Yeah, I'm a standout crafter  Grin

I just now sent in my Q&A.  It's been forever since I've been in a swap, so I'm very excited to get involved in one again!  I've not heard of Junky Jane before, but I love her style.
24  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Re: Custom Logo Flag on: September 29, 2012 05:18:10 PM
That is one gorgeous flag.  I intend to make a flag of my roller derby league's logo for a parade.  I was going to paint the logo on with acrylic paint mixed with textile medium.  I like your technique better, but I don't know if I have time for all of that stitching.

Too fun!  I'm thinking several of these on my front porch will be *awesome* for Halloween.  I don't know if I can wait that long though!
26  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: aging metal with out chemicals on: March 30, 2012 12:13:46 PM
I've used used the egg yolk method with good results.  It doesn't take overnight for the metal to begin to tarnish - just watch it and wipe off the egg when you get the effect you want.  It is the sulfur in the egg that causes the reaction.
27  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Sealing Paint on a Cabochon? on: March 30, 2012 12:06:37 PM
I have some glass cabochons that I need to seal before using them in jewelry.

The cab itself is glass.  The design is printed on some kind of paper, glued to the back of the cab, and then the paper is painted by the maker to "seal" it.  I want to add an additional layer of protection against moisture since I want to use some of these cabochons for rings.  I also don't want the paint to scratch off.

I was thinking about using acrylic spray protective coating like what can be used over spray paint or inkjet photos. Is this enough protection?  Is there something better?

Ditto - what EnginerdLisa said.  My sizzix is collecting dust, and I would love to bust it out for a booze-inspired project.  Too bad The Man drinks from bottles.  I'll have to find a source for cans.
29  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: Glitterized Roller Derby Helmet on: January 22, 2012 01:10:05 PM
Aislynn - I think the other girls on my team sanded their helmets, but didn't go so far as to try to remove stickers.

After six months of use, I have to say the helmets I worked on have stood up the best.  The helmets the other girl glitterized have had some cracking/chipping off of the epoxy, and the epoxy has yellowed a bit while mine is still clear.  I don't know what brand of the other girl used, but I used EnviroTex Lite.  Since it's been six months, I should probably get a new helmet anyway for safety reasons, but I love my glitter helmet!
30  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Newborn Asian-style Top and Pants on: January 22, 2012 12:55:28 PM
A friend of mine had her baby shower this weekend.  Never one to give what is normally expected, I made two Asian-inspired outfits.  The top is the Simple Kimono Wrap.  To get the free pattern, you need to email the designer.  The pants are Basic Newborn Pant by made-by-rae.  Hopefully my fabric choices won't make the parents' eyes bleed, ha ha!
