1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Christmas Gift Idea Help on: November 29, 2008 09:37:01 PM
Okay so ideally I would like to decorate a store bought ceramic platter for a friend. However I can't find any paints that are food safe, which this gift really needs to be. Does anyone know of any paints that are permanent and food safe?

I've heard that my best bet might be to go to a ceramic studio that way it can  be fired to a permanent and food safe state, however it is hard for me to find time during business hours to go do this. So my second question is are any of you interested in helping me out with this if you have your own studio and/or the resources to do this?

If you are interested please PM me and we can talk about what it might cost.

Thanks for the help!

Okay, here she is! Thank you so much for the pattern Ghilie!!

I've named her Adalia. She was so super cute naked but I decided it wasn't lady like to have her running around in the nude so I made her a dress out of some interesting fabric I picked up a while ago. Also I really liked her cute little bald head and couldn't decided whether or not she needed hair so I made her a wig Smiley (See photos)

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Camo & Polka Dots Bathina Bag on: September 03, 2008 09:48:19 PM
This is a "Bathina Bag" that is recon'd from old clothes. This was originally a really cute skirt with camo on the outside and black with white polka dots on the inside. I thought it was a super cute combination and couldn't just throw it out since it no longer fit. Unfortunately I forgot to take a before picture so I did the best I could after the purse was finished. You can see where it used to fit into the skirt. (This purse isn't really as small as it looks in the picture compared to my giant hand, it is approximately 9" wide).

Here is a link to the pattern I used:

4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Plastic Company Pens on: August 18, 2008 02:17:50 PM
So my work ordered a ton of ink pens with their name & address stamped on them. They are very brightly colored but most of them are garbage and either won't write or won't twist to extract the ball point. All these pens have just been getting thrown away and I couldn't bare to see another go to the landfill and have taken to rescuing them all from the garbage. I've also recruited other pen-savers to help collect them for me.

Now what I need is some great idea for what to do with them!

I was thinking it would be cool to come up with a desk set for my office made from them glued together or something?? A pen holder for instance and maybe an "inbox" like tray thing. I don't know.

Anyway, I know y'all are full of great ideas so PLEASE help me Smiley

Thanks in advance!!

Here's a link to a photo of the pens:
