2071  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Recycled costume jewelry? Wire Wrapping Binge - pic heavy on: May 26, 2010 01:25:21 PM
Wow. Beautiful.
And thanks for the in process pics-not that I have any skill at wire wrapping-yet! But it was neat to see how it came together.
I looove taking apart old jewelry. Goodwill is my friend. I'm always digging through the odd and end and broken bin they sometimes have.
Again, wow!

2074  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Bowl o' melted beads :) on: May 26, 2010 12:01:50 PM
I just had a bowl idea...but I can't do it until I get a chance to work outside. Tiny house, kitchen window doesn't open. And you did mention plastic fumes, so I want to try a torch or grill outside instead.
Anyway-y'all were mentioning that it's hard to stack the beads very far up the sides of a bowl, so you end up just baking them flat and molding them to a bowl instead?
What if you had two metal bowls that were very close in size? Nest them, fill up the narrow space in between with beads, and melt? I'm thinking that with the beads sandwiched between metal, they may melt faster, too.
Just an idea...
I love all the melted goodies-so awesome!
2075  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Steampunk???? on: May 26, 2010 11:10:45 AM
Okay...it has a strong Victorian flavor. Science, but with steam power and clockwork. Elegant brass and wood instead of steel. So, say you'd still have a raygun, but it would be more like an antique pistol than a buck rogers or star wars look.The Instructables site has some beautifully modded computer keyboards, ect.
Very drool worthy.
Think Jules Verne, H.G.Wells. And for those who dress steampunk-think corsets, top hats, elegance-but punked up and modified. It's one of those things that's hard to describe, but you know it when you see it. Retro-futuristic. And yes, we tend to like the look of gears and watch works. Check out the amazing webcomic Girl Genius-it's where my icon is from. (Although its creator prefers the term Gaslight Fantasy)
I'm a steampunk nerd....I play the steampunk mad scientist ChicGeek on another forum. Smiley

Oh, this is tempting me...
2077  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Looking for ideas for restaurant decor on: May 14, 2010 05:10:41 PM
Somewhere on here, someone used beer/soda caps for a table top, coated with resin. And someone else cut apart metal soda cans, and made an awesome frame for a mirror.
Look in the old finished craft swaps. I was part of a Jimmy Buffet swap, and some of the crafts people made might be adaptable for a bbq restaurant/bar.
Some kind of mobile? Umm...
Corks. That one's tough. Again,  maybe glue a bunch on the frame of an old mirror or something? Look at the Goodwill/thrift store for kitchsy wall art?
Anyway, good luck! It sounds like a fun place.
2078  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: 101 Ways to Continue Crafting Without Breaking The Bank on: March 27, 2010 03:51:16 PM
40:: Find out when junk day is in your neighborhood-it's 3-4 times a year here.  Keeps walking/driving around, people put out stuff well before the day, and you can score neat stuff. I've found beeswax and wicks, (new-guess someone quit candlemaking), beautiful frames, ect.

41: Go to the library, and check out the craft books. You'll get lots of ideas on how to use stuff you never thought of before.
2079  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Tarot Cards on: September 11, 2009 06:46:36 PM
Make little notebooks. Decoupage a tabletop. Cover a folder or binder with them.  Make a purse.
2080  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Akira fanart madness! on: September 08, 2009 08:38:55 AM
Thank you! I didn't even know they made paints just for leather. I am strapped for cash-don't know yet if I'll wait until I'm flush, or go ahead. I have a long leather coat. Didn't cost me anything, hand me down from sister in law. Shop didn't want it-long coats not in style. So, why not paint it? I want to do something steampunky before a convention next year. Thanks for the advice, and I'll be sure to post when I finally do this.
