1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Squiggly octopus, with tutorial!! on: February 25, 2007 06:13:34 PM
AHHH I love them!!! Especially the blue/green varigated...
I'm about to finish knitting the legs for one, (you had me instantly NEEDING to make an octupus over the weekend)... but I wasn't able to find those black beady eye - 9mm plastic buttons that you used on your octupus. Do they have a name? I like how they look.

Adorable! thank you soo much for the pattern. Shall post pictures soon.

 ;DGreat tutorial thanks.
I don't have soldering equip either so won't be able to do it though. You should definetely sell these.

But just a suggestion on the soldering? I noticed that the sides get lumpy cause you do all of it standing up.. like the glass is standing up? Not sure if i'm making sense here. In doing stained glass i've found that it was easier to solder the sides (the front and back) with the glass laying flat on top of a base (flat wood usually) and then afterwards go over the edges...

 Cheesy I don't know if i'm just being meddlesome.. but i'm sure you've tried it on your own and thats the best way that you've found. Well anyhows. great job and awesome looking stamp necklace... Now i want to go take another stained glass course just so i can solder stuff..

HEEY! These are nifty. I like 'em lots. I have a bunch of stamps i've made into earrings... though i'm curious to know how you made these into pendants?
did you just take copper/silver stripy thingy (its like half adhesive and used for stained glass) and solder the outside and the hook on? or did you do something else?

and is the stamp in between two pieces of clear something? or is it just glued on?

kk. But very cool!  Grin

these are awesome inna!

thanks for the inspiration. Ran off to do them today with a black cdr from memorex and they turned out snazzy. Like dark looking but when the sun hits it, it turns crackly deep red. Very pretty. Shall post pics when i get my digi cam working.

5 seconds of microwaving and then a few minutes of the oven. How long did you put them in to get them wildly blue? O.o Huh

DUDE! So awesome. I made myself a bunch of pick earrings last night (guitarist myself)...
I want to go make a bracelet now...

Anyhows, another slightly easier suggestion on how to poke a hole through:
Take a paperclip, bend it slightly out of shape, heat up the end with a lighter or in your stovetope flame, voila.
