1  Bass Nectar Shine Hat - Glows in the Dark - Uv Activated! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by shaoono on: August 03, 2013 04:35:29 PM
I've been working on some glow in the dark hats for my festie boys this summer. BUT this one has by far been my favorite. It is a Bass Nectar themed NEON glow hat... that also reacts to UV laser pens. I like to call them SHINE hats since my nickname around lot is Shantastic Shine  Wink

Here are a few photos of it and it's creations:




This  hat was designed as a custom order and is a size 7 3/8 fitted hat.

The glow will always eventually go away within minutes. It is made to last long enough to see but disappear for continuous play time.

If you follow the link in my Sig to my blog there is a VIDEO of how it works and reacts to black light and stuff Smiley I have 5 more hats to make tonight and I would REALLY appriciate any feedback you might have on them or good ideas to put on them!

3  GLOW HAT UV activated and handpainted in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shaoono on: July 05, 2013 02:36:19 PM
FINALLY after tons of requests, and mentions of a "hat" design or piece of "artwork" I finally made The first Shantastic Shine Hat attempt.

It is a flat bill size 7 1/4 fitted hat. The back is currently white but could be dyed/painted a solid color if requested.





I handpainted this bad boy a few nights ago.

HOWEVER, my next step WAS to make this or the next one GLOW/UV activated.... and guess what I DID! I can now create ShineHats that react to the UV lasers like the Shantastic SHINE BOARDS. I am beyond excited to create a few more for the upcoming festivities I plan to attend.  They are then glazed in a thin coat of a special uv reactive paint to react with laser. These hats will glow for a few minutes in a dark place if left or worn in direct sunlight for long periods of time. This shouldn't effect the hat or design. It is based off of the same idea as the stars that children can put on their ceilings to glow at night.

Now you can have your own person glow on the go!
What kind of hats would you like to see? Do you have any ideas or themes for me? I would love to hear some input.


OH one more thing! I made a video to show HOW it glows but it's kinda "Selly" so I didn't want to directly put it on here... if someones interested check it out on my website in my signature. It's pretty nifty  Cheesy

5  Recycled Tye Dye Tee to Awesome Accessories in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shaoono on: October 26, 2012 09:52:05 PM

Today's goal was to not leave the house, but make numerous items.  That turned out pretty easy once I realized it was time to RECYCLE!

Now who doesn't have an old T-shirt or two laying around the house? I know I have a million!  So I started hunting through the bunch.
Flower Power Necklace

 I found the prefect old t-shirt laying in a pile. Lately I have been on a tye-dye kick , well maybe it's not a kick? More like an all the time thing!

        That being said, I have some rather rough  looking tye-dyes that I made with a few kids a while back. They were a bit on the lame side with not much of a pattern to them. Anyways! Since they weren't being worn I figured why not make them the perfect accessory to my new favorite tye dyes? Take a peak at my new creations! Smiley


  I also wanted to mention I got the idea while browsing around some awesome craft blogs. I had seen it on numerous pages so I'm not sure who to give the first credit to. However, I started making the Infinity Scarf from a tutorial I found on : Kojo Designs

But it was linked to this awesome page I found full of home made Christmas ideas! The Happy Housewife's list of 100 great home made gifts.



 Sadly, all my tye-dyes are in the wash due to adventure to the farm last weekend. So I had to suffice wit my favorite black tee. Now I'm wondering if I can get away with my tye-dye accents at my "all black" uniform photography job. Guess I will have to see Sunday when I go to work Wink






Thanks for checking it out! Feel free to let me know if you would like me to make one for you.



Happy Crafting.
-Shantastic

P.S. Those were all made from one shirt! I was surprised how much I could make from one tee!

7  Glass Globs? Help Please! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by shaoono on: April 01, 2010 04:11:36 PM
Ah guys I need your help. I recently posted this on the glass forum and realized it was probably more likley to get awnseres here * sorry I don't want in trouble for double posting you can delete one* I'd just like help lol.

Now there are prob a topic about this already but I couldn't find it and went through a ton of pages..... and the internet. So Here is the thing. I went to New York a few years ago and saw a vender with some of the most amazing glass glob pendants I've ever seen. Although They looked a bit bigger than the normal bag of globs you can find at a thrift store.

The thing was they were still globs just bigger and they were made to be florescent colors ... which obviously caught every tourists attention including mine and my grandma's ...  But they also had like a metal backing or something to finish them.

We've both been searching ever since on how to do it and I'm finally giving in and asking for help...
I've seen hundreds of things saying that they use those transfers to get pictures and stuff behind them. But It looked way simpler than that because I can't melt glass or anything. I've also seen were they just hot glue the backs to finish them but that isn't right either. And I've seen where people have mentioned soldiering and such. If that's the case how exactly would I do that? Or would some sort of resin work?

One in particular used coke cans as the image and had the metal side wraped around the glob... How would that be done?

 I would just like to use some of the cheapo little globs and make them pretty colors. But I want them to be finished so it won't rub off. Any Help?
Also what kind of paint should I use?

Sorry I'm a glass newbie lol but I'm so interested. I finally need answers.

This is kind of what I'd like ... just plain colors or maybe a color with some dots or just something simple... I just don't know how to do the backs


or this

9  Piratey homecoming in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shaoono on: November 13, 2007 02:13:50 PM
MY homecoming theme this year was Pirates... not the best theme in the world but it was fun none the less...... No one really goes with the themes at my school but I like to do it to stick out a bit plus I was on the decorating team so I had really gotten into the pirate theme.So I had my grandma help me with my outfit... so I'm giving her the credit but it was my idea. She mad the Corset Jacket with a simple pattern from a craft store.... It's my new favortie jacket for sure. Then the dress is a OLD one from about 5 years ago that i wore to a middle school formal... It had been a really long sorta ugly dress that was always stepped on and to plain... so we made it a whole lot shorter added a few cute flowers to cover the stitches.  and I put a little tutu I got with a costume for about 5 dollars under it to poof it out.... I was the highlight of the dance and I loved it...  I made my boyfriend dress up like a pirate to.  Wink

I'm glad it turned out so good because she only had about a week to put it all together because she had been helping me with all the other decorations but it turned out Great  Smiley

*I didn't know which section to put this in since the jacket was made from scratch and the dress was a recon  *




Whole View.... ( my boots were the same length they just look funny from the way I was standing in the picture)


Upper View


Me being silly with a piece of my little brother pirate toys haha


So pretty much I had a whole outfit for about 20$ for the fabric for the jacket and the boots and my cool hat.... not bad seeing how the dress I had wanted before was 300$ .... but I would have NEVER paid that much haha
