Can't help you on the medium thing...but how about "Snorlax:  Sleeping and eating is always in style?"

Love snorlax.  Think I'd go carve a stamp with that image on it now.
832  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / I blame the acetone... on: January 13, 2010 06:51:21 PM
So, being a novice stamp carver - I had confidence that I can work on tiny areas with not much trouble.  (I had a bit of practice.)  Until I decided to get fancy and carve a small portrait of a certain electric mouse.

Things that went wrong:

1)  Spilled almost 1/4 of the jar of acetone on the eraser.
2)  Using a very soft "for big mistakes" eraser
3)  Didn't change the pikachu to black and white
4)  Carved it in low light settings.

The stamp looks like a soul-sucking pikachu.  *creepy*  Pikachu!  Use soul-suck!

Thanks!  I'd keep an eye out for those!

-  When you always have ink on your hands
-  when your desk/work surface is covered in test stamps!

-  you start to like the smell of vinyl being carved
-  you find stamp shreds everywhere!
-  you rescue used, "unloved" erasers, and turn them into mini art pieces
-  you have way too many erasers in your stash
-  you like your cuticle remover!
-  you don't know how to use photoshop, except to make stampable images

Edit:  Quick question:  Anyone have a good inkpad brand to recommend?  I've been using office type inkpads, and the not so intense color is driving me up the wall!
835  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Capsule Toy balls? on: November 17, 2009 06:20:53 PM
Nice.  I think I'd do that.  I had several in my freezer, holding catnip and stuff.
836  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Capsule Toy balls? on: November 12, 2009 09:13:02 AM
So, yeah, I'm a big fan of capsule toys.  (I have a Totoro plushie from one of them sitting in my purse right now, and my girlfriend has the catbus one from another machine.)  Problem is, I don't know what to do with these little plastic capsules.  They are bigger than your average cat toy and have some holes in the bottom of them.

What do you guys suggest?  I have about a dozen of them - I've given some away as cat toys with some catnip stuffed inside...and those are rather successful.

The capsules are generally clear plastic "eggs" that open.  Some have holes in one end, and some have threads to screw into the other half.

Silent Hill - I pulled this from a couple of versions of the mask/outfit.  It's not from the actual movie (that mask was longer and darker).
838  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: aayla secura - twi'lek jedi on: November 02, 2009 10:01:12 AM

Love the makeup and the headtails - how did you pull those off?   Shocked
839  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: "Take Chances, Make Mistakes, Get Messy!" Miss Frizzle! [img heavy] on: November 01, 2009 09:28:01 PM
Truly awesome!  As soon as I saw the quote, I almost screamed - it's Miss Frizzle!  Even in high school, I would find myself watching that show...terribly entertaining it was...!
840  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Chibi Pyramid Head, now with bloodstains! on: November 01, 2009 09:20:27 PM
Helm:  Foam board + cardboard at the back.  Bits and bobs are water bottles and other things.

Apron/Shirt:  Shirt is repurposed tee shirt with tea stains and acyrlic paint as the bloodstains.  (Large red handprint on the back of the shirt.)  Apron is broadcloth distressed with dirt and tea.  Same blood stains.

Gauze:  medical gauze soaked with fake blood (corn syrup, chocolate syrup, food coloring) and dried again.

Pants:  plain black pants.

This was fun to wear, plus I had a lot of fun making it!  Cheesy  The helm took all summer to design (maybe about 1 month), and the apron and shirt took me about 1 day to repurpose.  The next challenge is making the great knife (oversized meat cleaver) that the character carries.

Too bad a lot of college kids didn't play the game...
