382  Re: Coasters and Trays and Magnets Oh My! (aka Fun with Resin!) - VERY IMG heavy in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by HSG on: November 27, 2006 07:13:50 PM
Okay, PinkyK you inspired me to try this, and here is my first try. Yet another project to add to my list.  Wink I like how it turned out except...it turned yellowish. Is that because of the type of mold I used? the mold was a plastic top to one of those aluminum pans you use for baking.

Also I was in Dollar Tree today (one my favorite stores), and they have silcone cooking molds, and ice tray molds in various shapes and sizes. Some I got were shaped like lemon wedges, but they had moon, stars, etc.

So here is my test:

So what do you think? If I can get this clear I would like to sell some of these in my shop.
Thank you  Smiley

383  Mucho Mosaics (Warning: Picture Intense) in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by HSG on: November 23, 2006 08:23:24 AM
Been doing mosaics for about 4 or 5 months now, and I am completely obsessed! With each new one I learn something new I did not know before.

I'm using most anything in the pieces that I can figure out how to use. Making pendants is fun, and make great one day projects. My new thing now is experimenting with coloring my grout myself, and adding glitter or other things to make it more part of the piece than just boring grout.

At any given time I have about 3 - 4 projects in various stages. Next week I am going to be trying stained glass techniques, and metal.

Meantime, here are some of the more recent pieces I have finished. ANY comments are completely welcome, and encouraged. Smiley

Here are a couple of beads that were the result of my first time playing with polymer. Please let me know what you think. I did do some canes, but have not had time to do anything with them yet. Smiley

As long as you do not damage the inside portion of the thumbdrive, it will still operate just fine.

As for me I think this is a great idea! I have made one of mine into SpongeBob.
Sponge Bob Thumb Drive Mod

This is a fast fun mod and craft.

Essentials needed:
SpongeBob stuffed keychain (or similar toy)
pair of scissors
seam ripper
needle and thread
thumb drive
Pictured here:

We have the technology we can rebuild him.....
First we need to give SpongeBob a little breathing room in his pants. Don't worry Bob this won't hurt a bit.

He looks to have taken that pretty well.

Next is to open up the seam in the top of his square head. After that is done some of the fiberfill inside will need to be removed to accommodate the thumb drive. Only remove about a quarter size amount.

Push the thumb drive into the top seam, and oput the hole made in SpongeBob's britches. Then you need to stitch back up the top of his head so it looks the same as before.

Now let's see our handy work.

Here is SpongeBob getting his thumb drive on.

And now he is ready to go anywhere.

Here are two more I made from the petal pattern. The square one I like the idea of other shapes, and the black/tan one is reversable.  Smiley
