11  My First Sock Monkey! Vegas-style! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by theantihipster on: May 28, 2008 05:58:44 PM
I made my first sock monkey!! from a tutorial found here: http://www.web-goddess.org/writing/tutorial/Image0.html this tute was WILDLY helpful, she didn't make it look too easy or too hard.

so here's the Ruby Casino sock monkey, up close:

and the whole she-bang:

I made this monkey for one of our jeerleaders, Ruby Casino. I play roller derby in St. Louis and we'd be lost w/o our support staff! It's even constructed from gen-u-wine roller derby history, I wore these knee-high socks my first season.

I've got so many socks that are out-of-comission I could make an army of sock monkeys, and I just might. The outfit was ten times harder to make than the monkey, I'll stick to people clothes from now on thanks.

have a great day, thanks for looking!

12  Resin Jewelry Variety Hour! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by theantihipster on: April 20, 2008 04:22:28 PM
Alright, I made this stuff a month or 2 ago & FINALLY have some time to post it (even though our internet is still pretty messed up).
Ta DAAAAA!!! I made the molds for these fox pendants all my myself! they are 100% one of a kind, designed & executed all by yours truly. I'd give a tute if you like but the whole process was so infuriating I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

here's my springtime pendants (P.S. hallelujah for photobucket's new edit feature!)

some repro pendants:

I definitely want to start making more rings and other objects besides pendants, but obviously you've got to start somewhere.
Some fun, craft maven-y pendants w/embroidery floss & glitter

I made this mold, too!

thanks for looking!
here are some older posts of resin jewelry:

13  Re: Record Bowl 2.0! (sealed! waterproof! they hold anything!) in Completed Projects by theantihipster on: March 23, 2008 06:51:15 PM
so here's my question:

what would be cooler?

1. record bowls how they are, they look clear but actually aren't

2. the hole in the middle has a great, cheesy picture of the band, like this:

obviously a better quality image than that, but I've got Jefferson Starship "We Built This City" & I love Grace Slick's big hair in the video, so I would sink something like that in the resin.

so... what do you guys think?

15  Record Bowl 2.0! (sealed! waterproof! they hold anything!) in Completed Projects by theantihipster on: March 16, 2008 07:12:35 PM
 Grin I'm a million times more excited about this than anyone else, I've accepted it. Please read my post anyway.

So you know what sucks about record bowls? the hole in the middle!
especially when you've got alot of super-cool 45s your sister played to death in high school. They're no longer playable, but still embody memories from your childhood...

my solution: seal the bottom of the record w/resin, now it still looks like a record but functions perfectly as a bowl! (or coaster! I made those too)

et voila! see? 45 records that hold tiny beads!

here's the bottom of the bowl holding beads

...and coasters

assortment of coasters:

issa miracle!

close up (Dude Looks Like A Lady by Aerosmith, hahaha)

I'm so glad I finally figured it out! I've literally had these bowls sitting in storage for years waiting for the solution & here they are Smiley  let me know what you think.
I think I might start painting the bowls or adding pictures in the record hole or sometin.

16  frosted votive holders/rocks glasses? *lossa pics* in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by theantihipster on: March 09, 2008 07:23:09 PM
so I've literally had these votive holders for at least 5 years, I've had about a million ideas & I finally decided to try my hand at hand-etching. It was SO fun, really labor-intensive but definitely worth it.

they're supposed to be votive holders but they're really big, more like a rocks glass, they would definitely make for a fun party & interesting bartending  Grin

so here's pics w/ votives in:

and here's more pictures of all the animules:

the retro starburst pattern (which took a million years):

the drrrty birdies!:
there's a bird, a penguin, an owl (my fave), & a duck


and the barnyard animules:



cow & more lamb-

so there they are! I'd like to label all my containers at work if I could find the time. So many options! let me know what you guys think, I feel like I can't decide where to go from here

17  Vintage toiletry kit *more tattooed stuff!* in Completed Projects by theantihipster on: February 05, 2008 02:18:02 PM
okay, so if it's sits still, I'll paint it.

my other posts with tattoo design themes:

so here's the latest creation:


all the parts pulled out of the kit:

the piece was a one-in-a-million find & I wanted to give it as a gift, but that didn't pan out & it's been sitting around in my house, I finally decided to give it new life. It is easily one of the coolest things I've ever found & i'd like to think I make it just a hair cooler by adding my snake girl.

thanks for looking, have a great day!

20  my million-dollar idea: yer-face-here frames *pic obese!* in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by theantihipster on: February 03, 2008 07:38:47 PM
so my boyfriend and I have a little running joke that's kind of sad & motivating at the same time. He's a bartender & I'm a tattoo artist, but we hate working for other people so we're both on our "race to a million dollars", if he becomes a successful musician, or I a successful painter, then the other one doesn't have to work & we can do our own thing.

hoop dreams obviously, but it's nice to think about
I'd love to sell this kitschy little idea to knock-knock.biz or something, they're always a big hit at craft shows.

so here they are *DUN-DUN-DUN* Yer-Mug-Here photo frames!!

starring YOU as the virgin mary:

the voluptuous vamp in Man's Ruin:

a cute widdle bunny fufu (based on a great Tara McPherson print *my hero*):

here's some action pics at Indie Valentine:
she's a reproduction of original Sailor Jerry flash art

here's a happy customer buying her buddha!

I made a geisha that one of my fellow rollergirls bought before I could take a pic
(it's extra great cuz I was going to name the art "Shanghai Lily" after my team-mate, who ended up buying her! crazy...)
I'm getting better about this whole archiving deal...

more images to come:
koi fish based on this half-sleeve I've started on Mr Josh:

american gothic
circus freak posters
more geishas & japanese prints
more off my favorite rock posters

all of my frames are rescued from thrift stores & cleaned up/painted, I use as much upcycled (I love that word) materials as I can, waste not want not!
let me know what you think!!
