1  California / California: North / New to SF - Looking for craft group/meetup on: June 03, 2008 02:56:56 PM
Hello everyone,

I just moved to SF last month from Providence, RI. We had a great weekly craft meet-up there and would love to find something similar here...I see there are some groups in Oakland, I don't mind making the trip across the bay on the weekends, but would also like to find or start a group here. I have a pretty decent sized apartment and when i done unpacking could host a meetup from time to time.

Drop me a line if anyone has a group or wants to start a group. Btw, I make paper crafts, cards, notebooks, stationery, etc.

Hi -- I picked up the letter stamps from the craft store -- they were located near the cement and brick kits (this is also where i found the little bag of concrete and the concrete dye). If i recall, they were under $5. Go to this site http://www.butlerscraftsupplies.com/Mosaic%20Tools%20and%20Supplies.htm and scroll down to the middle of the page under the heading "stone stamps." I used the traditional letters and numbers, but i see they have several other types of letters and some cool designs. A note about the stamps, they are kinda cheap feeling plastic, but they did the job.

As for the mold, i used a foil loaf pan from the grocery store. The pan is quite flexible, so i didn't have any problems removing the stones. I'm not sure if they would be harder to remove from an actual stone mold.

The project took a few hours, as you have to mix the concrete, add they dye, pour the mixture into the mold and then wait a bit (it will say on the concrete mix). Once the concrete has firmed up a bit, but is still soft, that's when you stamp them. And if you make a mistake, just smooth out the surface of the concrete (it will be thick like brownie batter) and just stamp again.

hope that helps

Wow, those look great!  I've been tempted by the kits but you're right.  They're pricey!  Could you tell me more about your letter stamps?  Where did you get them and are they expensive?  Were the bricks difficult to remove from your mold?  Sorry for all the questions, but you've inspired me.  I want to make some of those!

How did you bind it? Did you make an accordian spine, then attach each page to it? I too do polaroid transfers and have been tryint to think of a good way to bind them together. Since mostly do sewn bindings (with folded pages) i can't exactly use that method to bind single sheets of paper together.

It's lovely, btw.

Instead of a drill, you can also use an awl to punch small holes in the paper, though it will take a bit longer.

I made these http://www.offbeatliving.com/garden_poetry_bricks.php a few years ago and they have held up quite well, even under the huge pile of snow we had this winter. If you've got the space, it's much cheaper to buy a larger bag of easy mix concrete at the hardware store, than a small bag at the craft store.
