Muses Mechanique!
Or, I had two last old disc drives to dissect, and a small stack of art postcards.

I have three done, another that should be done tonight,and that's all I can do unless I come across more old disc drives. ^_^  I'll do a post for them when I can hopefully take a decent set of pictures tomorrow.

Yet more rayguns! three on a rack,a pair on brass frames, and one on a plaque.

And rejiggered a couple of display stands by attaching cheap picture frames.

I love the stumpwork and the weaving!

5  Raygun rack,ect. in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: June 08, 2014 06:47:49 AM
rayguns! I bought this long green metal rack for 1.00  (I love Goodwill), hoping I could adapt it to hold a rifle sized raygun. Nope, but it holds three small ones nicely! You can't see it,  but it has two small built in loops for hanging. I still need to get a plaque that says something like 'Home Sweet Home',or maybe 'Home Security System' or something to hang from it.

I had two fancy brass frames that I bought for cheap at a thrift store, so I did a matching pair of small rayguns for them.

This one is a work in progress. I found the wooden piece at Habitat ReStore for 1.00, stained it with a small bottle of burgundy color I picked up for a quarter, them did a raygun in blue and gold. It's not attached yet-I've bent some copper hanging tape for now, but it's not fastened down.

6  Display stands for craft show in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: June 08, 2014 06:03:43 AM
Don 't have a  before pic-I found a couple of ' capitol I'  wooden display pieces at Goodwill. Now, I always need more display height at my table, especially at the upcoming comicon since one table was all I could swing. These aren't bad, but the top area was too small. So I bought two 1.00 frames from Dollar Tree, took them apart, sprayed the backing so both sides were black, them centered it on the top of the stands. A line of e6000 glue and hammered in thumbtacks (painted black) hold it on securely. Then I slide the frame glass and frame itself back on. I have a wider display area, one that now has a lip around the edge to boot. Obviously this wouldn't do for anything heavy, but for lightweight stuff it's perfect.

9  Three Top Hat boxes, and a raygun in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: May 08, 2014 03:49:42 PM
The three  cardboard boxes were holiday clearance for 25-50 cents,and covered in either red or green glitter and sequins. I ripped  off the plastic holly, spray painted a base coat, did several layers blending acrylic paints and also some rub n buff, then added ribbons and doodads.

I should have taken a before picture of this-it was made from clear red plastic, and said merry christmas! Added the heavy spring at the top, various doodads, two receipt tape rolls and an old film canister.

10  Gotham's Villains! plus a Rocket Red box, comrades. in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: May 08, 2014 02:58:45 PM
No heroclix were harmed in the making of this-they're held down with poster putty. Goodwill tray I hammered a hanger into, a coloring book, a torn up children's book.
Killer Croc, Twoface, ManBat, the Penguin, the Joker, Scarecrow figurines, images of Mr.Freeze, Poison Ivy, TwoFace, the Penguin, the Joker, and of course Batman himself.

Editing, hit post too soon!

Rocket Red!
