Thanks

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / How Do I Treat & Preserve Dried (Brown) Corn Husks for Crafts? on: October 13, 2013 08:58:09 PM
I've gotten some just harvested dried (brown) corn husks from a Uncle's crops and want to use them for crafts but have three questions..

1) How do I treat them for mildew or mold - just in case?

2) How do I treat them for bugs?

3) How do I preserve them for crafting purposes; I want large pieces for a wreath or corn doll so no shredding!

Thanks

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Fire-PROOF DIY Clay Recipe.... anyone? on: October 13, 2013 08:52:50 PM
 I am trying  find a do it yourself recipe (preferably  made out of household/common materials but it's just a preference) to make claythat I can mold into a bowl-shape.

The problem is that I do NOT have a kiln. 

This is a big problem because 1) The clay can't be the kind that needs a kiln to be dried (Duh!),

and MOST IMPORTANTLY

2)  I want the end result bowl to be Fire-PROOF .... (if you were a genie and I would add another request I would say that I'd like it to be a reciep for clay that won't shatter/come apart over time as this will be a gift.)

.....sorry for the tough one!  Any suggestions?

Thanks!

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Distilled Water ... Help! on: December 23, 2012 12:37:58 AM
I need to know how to make distilled water WITHOUT the fancy equipment or by buying it.  I'm using it for a snow globe!  I heard that you could make Distilled Water by boiling water and then letting it cool.

Is this true?

If not... ideas please!

Thanks!

I've seen this before on another site but they flattened the bottle caps out with a hammer first.  Question for you though, (bear in mine I'm new to the craft world,) how do you attach the clasps to the bottle cap (to thread the necklace  chain through)?
