This dress form had been sitting in my living room forever.I stripped it down and covered it in encyclopedia pages and pages from Alice in Wonderland. After many coats of mod podge, a little glitter and gold paint plus some crocheted doilies and pearls and this is the result.... Please tell me what you think.....

Thanks again for the nice comments!

hollylynne - The resin was no trouble at all I just mixed up a little poured it on top. I used a popsickle stick to guide the resin to the edges.

Just a little deer that used to be a vintage playing card modpodged onto a blank pendant found at the thrift store. I poured a little resin on it to make it shiny and adhered little beads and a plastic flower to it while it was curing. I'm really happy with it cause it's so cute. Comments please...

I made this for my moms bday in May. I took four shadowboxes from the dollartree and glued them together. I took my trusty modpodge and glued strips of dictionary pages to make the frame one piece. The background in the pictures is also dictionary pages painted with watercolor and then ripped to pieces. I painted each picture of my mom with a wash of watercolor and added some dried flower and other bits and pieces. Here name is made with scrabble pieces with the beginning of dictionary chapter letters. My mom loves to read so I felt the dictionary pages where fitting. Comments please  Grin.

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Is this plaster of paris safe for my kid??? on: May 25, 2008 10:59:21 AM



I picked this brand new box of plaster of paris up at the thrift store the other day. I just read the back of it and although it says that hand prints can be made with it it
also says that:

"WARNING: When mixed with water plaster hardens and becomes hot. Do not submerge any body parts into the plaster as severe burns may result. When plaster is being mixed, dust may cause irritation to eyes, nose, throat or upper respiratory system. If eye contact occurs, flush particles from eye with water. Do not take internally. Call a physician immediate if ingested. Children should not use this product except under adult supervision. Warning: This product contains crystalline silica, known to the state of California to cause cancer."

I remember using plaster of paris as a kid to make handprint molds but this has kind of got me shook up about using it. Would they suggest that you could use it to for hand prints if it was going to burn? Maybe they mean submerging for a long period of time? THOUGHTS? Thanks!

I also found this website talking about it. I do not think that the guy used it but he too found it ironic that they would say you could use it for handprints although it may burn etc.  (Scroll down to see it)
