1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Straw hat repair on: October 01, 2015 04:54:12 PM
Thanks. Suffice to say, the patch is on the inside and practically disappears when the Mod Podge dried.  I did have to clip the edges of the patches so they would stay flat accommodating the curves inside the hat.

It's hard to find a good wide brimmed hat, so when the crown cracked, I repaired it with a little glue and a tulle patch. I also braided new leather stampede strings.  The fishing photo is a "before" shot.

Great idea. Ours is useless for anything but hanging bird feeders on, this would be a big improvement!

What variety were your beers? You know, in the interest of full disclosure?

We brew too, but not crochet. Really a cute project.

My memory isn't as sharp as this sword. I don't remember if I posted my owl dress/tunic. A pal actually sewed it up for me before I got my serger.

She put stretch lace on as cuffs on the 3/4 sleeves and edged the neckline with it as well.

The sword is pretty dull, actually. Smiley
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Re: how to? beading needles... on: October 03, 2014 07:14:42 PM
I started re-stringing some pearls using the pre-threaded needle. After stringing and knotting about 15 pearls and a clasp, the thread broke off the needle.

Any remedy other than starting over? I just don't think there's enough room in the pearls to thread through a beading needle because the thread would be too fat. Ever try stiffening the end of the thread with something and just skipping the needle?

Stillatthetop-  I used Innovation Boku Undo Suminagashi pigment:

John and Sophie hand carved the linoleum blocks used for the black over-prints that you see on my sumi and water printed papers. The octopus, ammonite, and prehistoric squid and trilobyte are not stamps but block prints. The second photo shows John inking the squid block.

Here are some links I found very helpful after purchasing an Innovation Marbling Boku Undo Suminagashi kit at Dick Blick (no compensation for that ad).

Copperplate paper took the pigment the best, rice paper works, coated papers do not. A white enameled tray worked better than plastic or aluminum for me, especially since it was not first washed in soap.  Select a tray just slightly bigger than your paper. Card sized pieces are easy to start with. Using a tiny amount of dish soap and water mixed with my pigment gave me the best spreading without sinking pigment.

I would like to try this on fabric next! Cause I need another craft! No, I really don't. It's taking great discipline to finish the quilting project I'm in the midst of because this sumi printing is so fun!
