391  Re: wooooooood paneling in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by HSG on: January 17, 2007 05:49:13 PM
This is what I did with paneling in two customers homes.

This one is done with two colors, glaze and water. Two seperate views of the room at the house warming party they had.

In this image you can see the room had a tile ceiling, and I also sponge painted it an the dining room(next to it).

The other one I cannot find the image of, but what I did was take the sand paint (similar looking to plaster), and rolled it on the walls after I mixed it with a taupe color latex. then I did a smll amount of controlled paint spatters of two complimentary colors of latex to match the other room decor.

Hope that helps. Smiley

392  Mosaic Frame - Gift for Someone Special in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by HSG on: January 10, 2007 02:16:59 PM
Every week for the last 8 - 9 months I have been learning with my Rabbi's wife (the Rebbetzin). She is so wonderful, and kind I wanted to make a special thank you for her, and this is what I did.

I took some photos of the Rabbi in our temple, and then made a mosaic frame to put the picture into. Here is the result, and I am on my way to take it to her now. The pictures do not show the china pattern very well I'm afraid.

I am so pleased with how the photo, and mosaic frame turned out.  Smiley

396  Grandmother's Sewing Box - A Tribute ATC in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by HSG on: December 28, 2006 05:47:26 PM
This is my first ATC, and it is a tribute to my Grandmother. She passed away November '05 at eh age of 96. I got all her sewing kits, kniiting supplies, etc. She had things from when she was in her 20's that is just like new! But that is how everything she owned was kept.

Anyhow, here is the card made from some of the items. If you see the initials RF on the label tape, that was her maiden initials, and she was married for 51 years. I could go on about all the things in the sewing kits, but instead here is the card.


Comments? Suggestions? Smiley

This is to date the most amazing mosaic I have seen. It is the work of Faith Schexnayder, at Flatfork Studio. You can see the video on her site, but here is the finished product.  Shocked

398  DOH! Mosaic Mishap in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by HSG on: December 03, 2006 12:13:24 AM
Designed a great new mosaic pattern, and decided to put it on wood so it would be lighter than on some other backers. This one took quite a bit of special time to nip and cut for the right shapes and curves.

Well, something bad happened...as it dried the wood warped, and made the mosaic grout crack in the middle.  Sad

So it looks good except the crack in the middle. I can always fill the crack, but I cannot sell it in my shop with such a flaw. Guess this is another one to put into my wall of shame.  Wink

Maybe we could do swaps for irregular pieces from the glass forums?  Smiley

What do you think of the YinYang design, and should I do the design over on a safe surface?

400  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
