1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re:glass weed ash tray on: April 29, 2004 06:54:25 PM
i used craft acrylic paint that i got from the discount store for a buck.

i used the pattern that was already on the ash tray.

and yes i did seal it, because i painted the bottom and didnt want it to get scratched up.
i used a spray acrylic sealer in matte, and used 3 coats of it.

if i was going to do this again i would use a gloss spray - because i like it more and it would look like glass!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / glass weed ash tray on: April 29, 2004 01:40:14 PM
i got a bunch of stuff from my great grandmas house, (shes not dead, just lives in an old age home now)
and she had many many ash trays, so i saw one that i knew i could do something with, i dont smoke myself, and im not telling you to either ok!
but ash trays are boring, really they are, and this one is made of glass.

so i decorated it with acrylic paints and this is what came out!
i gave it to my boyfriend for ....well what its for, and he loves it!

the ashtray already had the designs on it i just painted them.


3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / embroidery - front and back - heart on: April 23, 2004 12:42:57 PM
so i havent done any embroirdery since i was in 7th grade, and it was a lion king pillow case for my little sister, and now im done highschool and college.
ive read every post in this section and it got my juices flowing again because i started again last night, i know its just a heart but its a start.
there's 3 different colors in it too.

i posted the back picture too, because someone from another post (i cant remember which now! Roll Eyes) was worried about the back of hers, so i wanted to show the back of mine - its pretty good from what i remember me doing when i was little!
