Someone on the shoe forum made awesome Archie covered shoes,with mod podge,I think.
But seriously,you'd be suprised what some of them might be worth.Even the ones that aren't old.Why not take them to a comic shop,and see? If they're crap,craft away! If they offer you enough money-buy craft supplies,and a few comics from the sale bin to play with!

Someone here made needle books out of them-picture a matchbook,but holding needles and some thread instead of matches.Someone else-I have no idea what thread-made a mosaic table top-she cut up paint squares into pieces,made her mosaic,covered with glass or resin,I couldn't tell.Very colorful.
Mat board for tiny,postage stamp size,images?Maybe as part of an ATC?Cover a small notebook?Send them to me? Grin It's funny,my daughter begs me to let her pick out a couple anytime we go to the hardware store.

Someone on the resin thread on the jewelry and trinkets board made resin coasters-some she filled with tons of sewing pins imbedded in the clear resin.They looked fun.
Make a porcupine? Offer to trade for something you need?Made needle books from paint sample cards,fill with needles,and sell them or give them away?

Just had a weird thought,about resining flowers,and the fact that the color leaches out-Does anyone remember this old science class experiment? You took a white carnation,added food coloring to the water,and the flower changed color as it sucked up the water? You could even split the stem in half and use 2 different vases of different colored water for a two tone flower? What if you did something like that before you tried to resin the flower?Would a flower treated like that hold color better in resin than an untreated one?
I just bought my first jug of envirotex lite and some mold release,yay! I've been wanting to try resin forever,and I can't believe I made it through all 68 pages of this thread.Lots of good advice here,thanks everybody.Unfortunately,it's too cold to go outside and play,and I don't have a good spot set up inside yet.But when I do...

Oooh,I can see it now.
"Can you say brains?"
"I knew you could."
Sorry,couldn't resist. Grin I don't think I'm going to have time to make something for Louisville after all.One of these days I'm going to do a craft challenge!
2489  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Fairytales, Fairies & Folklore swap,sign ups 16th Feb-8th March, send 12th A on: February 22, 2008 01:20:20 PM
I've got this thread bookmarked.I've signed up for the Shakespeare swap,and I was pondering if I want to do the Science is Art swap.But this sounds so awesome! I've found out 2 is my limit-I did 3 overlapping swaps once,and it was frantic.
I love urban/nontraditional fantasy.The Teri Windling series is great.So is Charles DeLint.He does a nice urban/native american/celtic blend.And the hands down best urban fantasy novel ever is War for the Oaks,by the fabulous Emma Bull.She made Minneapolis and the courts of Fairie live and breathe equally.Amazing descriptive imagery,and a hefty dose of rock 'n roll.Oh,has anybody read The Last Unicorn,by Peter S.Beagle? If you've only seen the animated movie,you owe it to yourself to read the book-it's wonderful.
Old fashioned fairy tales-light and dark,flower fairies,nature-I love the little fairy houses and doors people set up outside.Fairy tales from other cultures also are cool.I know I've got a few chinese/japanese stories in a collection somewhere.I have to admit I'm not a big disney fan,no offence!
If I have the time to devote to doing a good job,I'll sign up.Otherwise,I'll be a faithful lurker.This is SO tempting!

I always wanted to study archaeology and dig things up, does that count? And I love anything to do with space. Hey, when you're a child of the sixties, you grow up expecting things like moon bases and personal jetpacks as a matter of course.
My little geekette was just gifted with books 1-10 of the Book of Popular Science,from 50's-60's, and she's estatic.Nice to see the kid growing up right. May I suggest a couple of webcomics sure to delight the science geek in us all?
Girl Genius-Steampunk mad science, by the incomparable Phil and Kaja Foglio.
Narbonic-How can one not like a mad scientist who dots the i in evil with a little pink heart? 6 years of archives online.
A Miracle of Science.-Outer space,police detective mad science.Lots of robots and a sentient planet.Also archived online.
I think I'm going to have to do this swap. Grin
