61  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Duct tape dress forms (with tutorial) on: August 10, 2004 09:28:59 AM
Thanks to the person who posted on how to make your own dress form. I came up with this:

First I made the duct tape dress form of me and then stuffed it:

Then I made a stand out of 3 shelf mounts and an adjustable shower curtain rod (that makes the dress form adjustable to your height) and I painted it with automotive puple and blue paint:

Added some hemp and beads (I wrapped the hemp around and hot glued it to add sterdiness to the whole thing)

And now I'm covering it with material, not quite done yet, but you get the idea:

I still need to add my purple painted doorknob to the neck. But its almost done. Couldnt wait to post it!  Cheesy
62  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / painting a snowboard? on: August 03, 2004 10:11:23 AM
Is this possible? My brother gave me his old snowboard and I was wondering if someone has done it before, or has heard of someone doing it, or if its even possible at all. I don't even know where to begin! What type of paint would I use? Man, so many questions! Any tips would be nice.
63  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Doors shirt reconstruction on: July 28, 2004 09:45:33 AM
My doors t-shirt was pretty worn out and ripping everywhere. So I made this out of it!



You can clearly see one of the rips there that I sorta patched up from the inside. I think the rips with the black fabric behind them make it look pretty "unique" though.


Sorry for the abundance in pictures. I've been a little camera happy lately!  Cheesy
64  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Jim Morrison stencil on: July 06, 2004 10:08:38 AM
I used to wear my Jim Morrison tshirt so much that it ripped to the point that I couldn't wear it anymore as it was. So I decided to make my favorite tshirt live on by stenciling Jim Morrison onto another tshirt. So I took my stenciling paper, laid it over the old ripped tshirt, traced it, cut it out and applied it to the new non-ripped tshirt! It turned out well considering it was my first stencil.


65  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Van Halen flag into a pillow. on: July 05, 2004 03:17:05 PM
My bf had this old Van Halen flag that he wanted to put up on the wall but I wouldn't let him because it was all ripped on the corners and stuff. So I took it and turned it into a pillow for our 4 year aniversary!
Sorry for the blurriness. My camera sucks!


66  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / I had this boring ugly fish tank and... on: July 05, 2004 03:14:06 PM
I decided to take some hemp and an old bamboo beach matt thingy and glue it to the frame. Here are the before and after pictures. It turned out quite well and it hides all the wires! YAY!



67  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / First time poster here... on: July 05, 2004 03:09:09 PM
Yep, it's my first post! I figured I should make it an art one since I will be a Fine Arts student starting september. Here are a couple little paintings and things to show everyone. I accept criticism with open arms.  Wink

(acrylics and black marker)
That one is called "the american dream". You may not be able to tell but the silver tags on the pictures read as the following:
- We shall ignore those who speak freely -
- And silence those who protest and pose a threat to our so called democratic conformity -
- We are the United States of America -
- And we are the land of the free? -

Dying to Live (acrylics and black marker)

The City (watercolour, acrylics and black marker)

The Karate (acrylics and black marker)

Utopia (coloured pencils, watercolour and black marker)

Suicidle Tendencies (black marker and coloured pencils)
This one is actually about a dream one of my friends had. It's pretty creepy but I like it anyway.
