1  Re: Pictures of craft fair setup - Please post! in Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs by glitterkick on: July 06, 2011 12:00:21 PM
I have been doing a ton of shows lately so thought I would share some pics. Most all of the boxes are Xerox boxes covered in fabric. They are great for display and at the end of the show, take off the lid and load everything inside the boxes - tablecloths, jewelry, bracelet stands, etc. Makes for easy storage and pack up at the end of the day.

Hey - thought I would add a few more pictures to the thread. These are from my current line taken at shows I have participated in over the past month. I've been experimenting more with painting on the spoons.

Large spoons:

4  Challenge 1: Sea Spoon Pendant in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by glitterkick on: February 10, 2010 07:17:06 PM
I made this pendant from an actual soup spoon. It has a bit of blue paper layered over a sea green background, then just added bits of chain and pearls and covered the entire spoon with resin. That's pretty much it  Grin

I have been trying to put on the backgrounds (pictures, scrapbook paper, etc) without flattening the bowl of the spoon but the paper wrinkles and isn't a smooth finish.  Any suggestions?

I am experiencing the same thing!  I have to assume that each background paper is individually cut and shaped since each spoon may vary in size and shape, but I just can't seem to get the paper to lay down without wrinkles!  I'm hoping to make a special one for my mother for Christmas, so hopefully I can get a little advice.   Wink

Great work.  You truly are an artist!

Hi, sorry for the late reply. Yes, each background/paper is cut individually. The wrinkles have a lot to do with the thickness of the paper as well as the depth of the spoon. For a really thick paper, I try to work the wrinkles into the design. For example, the spoon below I used a very thick paper (paint chip) and you can clearly see the wrinkles around the edges:



Another option is to layer the papers so that you can avoid wrinkles by only using small strips of paper. Like this:


Or just use half the spoon for paper like this:



In general, the more shallow the spoon and the lighter weight the paper, the less wrinkles. Try to work with the paper by pressing it into the spoon and working out the wrinkles, make discreet cuts to the paper if needed, work the wrinkles into the design, cover a wrinkle with a charm or something, etc. Hope this helps!

6  More spoons and resin in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by glitterkick on: October 01, 2009 01:20:42 PM
Have been playing around again with resin and spoons. Although my favorite are the large round soup spoons, have also found out how cute and little souvenir spoons are for pendants.

7  Resin and Spoons in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by glitterkick on: November 05, 2008 07:59:11 AM
I am always looking for things to put in resin or to put resin in . . . and I have lately been obsessed with making resin spoon pendants. They are the perfect size - I particulary love round soup spoons and little tiny souvenir spoons. Anyhow, here are some pics of my tons and tons of spoons (my friends always find me at the thrift store by following the sound of a hundred spoons clanging together):

From a show in Atlanta:

8  Dollar Tree Jewelry Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by glitterkick on: May 09, 2008 11:49:50 AM
The bird is from the dollar store as are the pink beads from a couple of necklaces they had in their jewelry section. The round piece with the two pink flowers is actually one of a pair of dollar store earrings that I poured resin over and added to the necklace. I like the way it came out over all.  Wink

9  Lounge Lizard in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by glitterkick on: July 20, 2007 09:04:04 AM
I don't know if this is technically reconstructed or not, but since it used to once be alive . . .

This lizard died of unknown causes - just so you know I don't make a habit of going out and killing small animals for jewelry. I found iton my front porch completely mummified. (In case you don't live in Florida, this is a common thing - lizards and giant cockroaches are two important things they leave out of the Florida tourist flyers.)

So instead of sweeping him into the bin, I thought hey, necklace? So he is encased in resin forever and ever and maybe even longer. I made the background pink because it seemed more cheery for a dead lizard.

Ta-da!

10  Watch Out Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by glitterkick on: July 12, 2007 12:05:39 PM
I have had these watches forever that I have dragged with me across 7 states, determined that I would eventually figure out something to do with them. I finally figured something out - a watch bracelet!  Cheesy None of the watches actually work, but oh well, now it can always be 5:00. There is a lobster clasp to close the bracelet (I didn't actually get a pic of that part). Well enjoy.
