1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Where can I find BIG FLAT WOOD BEADS!? on: January 19, 2010 07:15:46 PM
I am looking for wood, acrylic, or bamboo beads.

They need to be flat, double side-drilled, and about 1.5-2 inches in length, with about one inch in width.  Like elongated disks.  I could use rectangular ones instead, but I can't find them anywhere!

I've looked in local craft and hobby shops, online at dozens of bead retailers, and on supples on Etsy...but still nothing.  The closest thing I've found are these:

but I was hoping for side drilled.

ANY THOUGHTS OUT THERE IN BEAD LAND?Huh?
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / HELP WITH GLAZE/LACQUER/SEALANT!!! on: September 09, 2008 02:58:42 PM
I have these decoupaged boxes that I am selling to a local business.
I'm trying to find the best sealant for them that will hide the feeling of all the seams of the paper.
These are 3-dimensional, so resin wouldn't probably work.  I need advice on what might be the best option for me.

Polyurethane? Lacquer? Shellac? Glaze? Resins? Some other magical sealant and finish that I haven't thought of?

I want a gloss finish, and I have no problem with applying multiple layers.

My current method is Triple Thick spray glaze by Krylon.  It has a nice finish, but it's too thin because it is a spray.  Perhaps a brush-on would be best.

HELP!!!
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / How do arrange all my Mary stuff? on: April 24, 2004 01:26:30 PM
I have a TON of Virgin Mary stuff from the dollar store and other places, and I need to create a kind of shrine or area to house all my stuff.  I have that catholic imagery fascination, even though i'm not even christian!     I have a limited amount of wall space that would work for it, and some of my items are bulky.  I have clocks, candles, mirrors, pictures, books, calendars, frames, etc.  Any ideas on a good way to arrange this stuff?

i use old strands of mardi gras beads to tie in my hair when i go to the club.  i put my hair in pigtails, a ponytail or a bun and bobby pin the beads to the inde of the bun, or tucked under the elastic in my hair.  it really accents my outfit!  i also use old ribbon, shoelaces, tubing, cable, wires or fabric trim, anything that will stay!

I make skirts out of neckties.  I sew them together vertically and since they are naturally tapered, they come together quickly and easily.   Plus you can vary the length to make a super short skirt or a below the knee one.  I bought a lot of 200 ties on eBay for $20 and separated them by color and pattern, so the skirt will have some consistency.
