12  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Cool Wine Bottle? on: December 04, 2006 10:53:17 AM
I don't know if this will help, but if you have a local craft facility with a kiln, you can flatten it.  On my campus, our craft shop had a special activity where you could bring any glass bottle in and turn it into a flat decoration or even a cutting board!

This was my immediate thought as well. I went to a craft fair this weekend, and flattened bottles were everywhere. There was one place that was selling flattened wine bottles as cheese serving plates.

Am I the only one who thinks this is racist?

There has been much discussion about this in the thread. I can assure you there is no racist intent, but I can appreciate that some people might find it offensive.

looks great!

Tatting is on my list of "crafts to learn" I dicovered some old metal shuttles (with some half finished lace attached) in my grandmothers old sewing box and have been intrigued ever since!

16  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: sc, not chain foundation row?!?! rant and question on: November 20, 2006 10:25:30 AM
man, that would piss me off to no end!! I wouldnt care if that woman had the super secret technique that fixed you dinner while you work, I STILL wouldnt take a class from her. UGH!

I'd do exactly what you just did. If someone here doesnt know what she's talking about, then she probably made it up to make a quick $100.

18  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Re: Snow Globes on: November 10, 2006 08:29:08 AM
I made some mini snowglobe necklaces using tiny jars my daughter's growth hormone comes in.  I add glycerin to slow the glitter fall & some of the preservative I add when I mix her growth hormone to retard the bacterial growth.  They worked great, but I didn't have the right GLUE.

What kind of glue do you use to anchor the polymer sculpture to the base?  I used gluegun glue because I wanted the bulk to help prop up the tiny figures I used, but it didn't always stick.  I want something better to anchor the rubber stoppers to the glass jars, too. 

TELL ME YOUR GLUE SECRETS!!!

Thanks!


Sounds cool! From what I've read, E6000 (check the craft dept at walmart, etc.) will work. That's what I plan to use inside, but it should definately work great for gluing the stoppers (I assume you mean like little feet?) If you mean stoppers like a little plug to keep the water in, perhaps a silicone epoxy is the way to go. I havent tried any of this yet, this is what I gather from my research.  Smiley

We just moved out of an apartment with this very problem! I used to do that all the time! (6'1) I loved the way that chattering my teeth would cause the whole cabinet to rattle! <--weirdo  Grin

I guess that's the long way to say BRILLANT!!
