My favorite kind of crafting! Here's a HUGE list of T2T craft ideas!

You may be all done with your project by now, but this is how I'd do it....Sand the surface with a fine sandpaper, use polyurethane or marine varnish (they sell it at home depot & lowe's) to stick the pics down and then a layer over them. Wait however long the product says and put a few more coats on. If you lightly sand between coats, it will have a nice, waterproof, heatproof surface.

I use regular white glue (elmer's, school glue, whatever is cheap). You use it like the regular stuff sold as crackle finish (but thin it with just a little water, let it dry about 20 min, then paint over it). The crackle happens in a way that looks like when you have painted furniture outside in the weather. I think it looks more natural on large pieces that some of the expensive stuff. If you use a heat gun (like the embossing guns) or a hair dryer, the crackle is bigger (?)...and kind of fun to watch happen).

Do you have any more info now?

5  Ohio / Ohio: Northwest / Does anyone in Findlay craft? on: May 19, 2004 05:13:23 PM
 Huh  I moved to the Findlay area about a year ago from Indiana and only know about 3 people in the whole state! I'd be interested in getting together with fellow crafters of any kind. I have tried almost everything (except knitting) and have tons of supplies. I'd love to be able to exchange know-how!  There's nothing worst than a lonely crafter....

I LOVE vintage patterns!!! I just bought a couple at a garage sale for $.75 each. I wanted to buy them all, but the lady had so much cool stuff, that was all I could afford! I live just outside of Findlay (AKA "Land of No Cool Junk Shops"). Where is Westerville from here?
