31  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Wheels for Cinderella's Coach? on: October 21, 2013 03:42:41 AM
Hi For a pumpkin contest at school my daughter wants to do Cinderella with the coach and clock tower. We were working on a paper mache coach but the hubby suggest we get a small gourd instead since the coach was a pumpkin. Anyway which ever we decide to use is going to need wheels. I'm not sure how to make them I found some ideas, using wire and paper mache but they're not quite what I was looking for. Of course the back up plan is cardboard if I can't find anything else, but I was hopeing with all the crafty folks on here maybe someone might know a fancy way to create the wheels so they would look nice.
Thank you.

No problem. I wasn't on yesterday myself, we were putting up paneling in our living room. Still have to fix and paint the ceiling then we will be pretty much done with that room.

Ok I will have to play with the pigments to see what works. I think I will be doing a lot of experimenting. Smiley

That's really cool and I'm sure it's fun playing with the different colors and flavors. I can't wait to get my supplies. Thanks for being so helpful.

Yes it is choatic. My living room and kitchen are in shambles right now, but I keep telling myself that it will look better once everything is done. Smiley I found a couple promising knots on the pages you linked to, thanks again.

Ok, The reason I asked is I saw Iridescent Glitter at Micheal's, I too live in a rural area so my choices are limited when it comes to stores, and my daughter was asking for something glittery. She likes those cheap glittery lip glosses you can get at the Dollar Store. This was very fine like a loose eyeshadow, and it was in with the soap making supplies. But that TKB site is great, so many colors to choose from. Maybe I'll put in a small order and try some different colors. Do the pigments tint the skin or just the lip balm?

I know what you mean about buying things and then having them moved to the back burner. I tend to see stuff on sale and go oh I can use that, then it sits on my craft shelf forever. I shouldn't be allowed in a craft store or hardware store for that matter. LOL. No worries about finding Shimmer Dust, I think my mother-in-law might have some or at least know what I'm talking about. She does a lot of fancy baking.

Thanks again, you are being super helpful. I hope I'm not being to much of a pest with all my questions.

Thanks for the heads up. I have to do my research if I decide to sell it, but for right now it's just for fun. I hope you don't mind but one more question, can I use the same glitter used in soap in the lip balm or does it have to be some special kind?

Yes, you've been extremely helpful. The shop I'm going to buy from states the flavor oils are FDA approved, so I think I'm good to go. I'll hold off on using essential oils until I know more. Right now I'm just playing, with lip balm for my own purposes. I might give some away for Christmas, hence the peppermint oil question, but it will be just to friends and family. If I get really good at it in the far far future I might try to sell it, but for now it's just to fill my own lip balm obsession. Smiley
Thank you for all the info, now I know where to go if I have more questions.

Thank you for all the information. I actually spent yesterday afternoon comparing prices and ingredients. I finally found a base I liked that was reasonably priced on etsy. I probably should just buy all the ingredients and make my own since I'm being pretty picky. LOL. Right now the order I'm going to make is the cheaper option. Because it has the base, flavor oils (yup I do know the difference Wink) and tubes.
 Quick question though have you ever used Liquid Sorbitol as a sweetener and can you use peppermint oil like the kind used in candy for lip balm? I'm not talking about artificial flavoring but actual oil.

Thanks. I did do some research before doing this, I found Crayola uses food based pigment and are non-toxic basically they are designed for kids to rub on themselves and eat. So I figured they would be ok. But it doesn't matter since I scrapped the whole idea. I'm going to buy a lip balm kit from etsy (there are a couple reasonable priced that have everything even pigment) or one of the suppliers posted in the supplier thread. I wanted a fun cheap project to try with my daughter, but it just wasn't working and you bring up some very valid points as well. It was neat experimenting and I did come up with some ideas for projects to use old broken crayons for, but just not to put on the body. Smiley
As for recipe I had some base left over from when I made lip balm a while ago, it's  Macadamia Oil, Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Jojoba Oil, Castor Oil and I used a little Bubble Gum flavor oil.

I recently found some videos/ blog posts on making lipstick with crayons. Well I tried my hand at it yesterday and the wax separated from all the other ingredients. I remember I had this problem when I tried making homemade lip balm as well but for the life of me can't remember how I fixed it.
Has anyone tried this and know what I'm talking about or how to keep everything from separating during the cooling process?
