Sorry these pictures are so awful. I cant even say my camera was acting up, I am just an idiot.... so yeah, used that technique with liquid Sculpey and origami paper. THis was my first one, and I am starting to get the hang of it. I will post more successful versions someday soon....
These are done with fishing line and increasingly large beads-- the turqouise obviously has a few more sizes of beads to it. Turquoise is finished with a kind of awkward crochet end loop/bead closure (it was my first time trying it)-- the white one is "river rock"-- whatever that means, but that is what it was labeled, finished with silver ends and a dangle chain. These are very technical terms, everyone, I hope you can understand my jargon. Dangley chains with hangy balls.
these are about 2 years old, but I am trying to impress you all with my history of crafting, so my next post after this one will be the paint dot butterfly from second grade..... hmmmmm.. so, two versions of a cast from the same mold, one autumn colors/gold highlights, one spring colors/silver highlights. The gold/autumn one is casted in neoprene, the silver/green one is latex. Painted with acrylics, lined with felt. made to fit my face. please excuse the thread running across the bridge of the nose-- they were hanging on my wall. I give you crazy eyeball looks.
My roommate has a thing for dachs.. weiner dogs, right? and so I thought I would make her one for her birthday to eat.....
It is homemade chocolate cake cut into shapes and then all frosted together. Tastes just like the real thing. first shape cake I ever made. I know it isnt proportionately long enough, but I was limited to the size of the cookie sheet and I wanted there to be as much cake as possible... so he is kind of fat. and short. For a weiner dog. cake.
I am doing a stop motion animation starring this guy
I dont know if this is the best place to post him, but his face is polymer clay. he has a wire armature with a soft sculpt body made out of nylon and polyester fill. He is somewhat mummy-like, and is supposed to look very hand-made. He is touching his mouth in this shot. His eyes are freshwater pearls, and his face is set, but I am making him blink and whatnot in photoshop in my post production time.....
This is from not this past summer but the summer before.
The pattern is a pineapple based off of a vintage poncho pattern I found on the crochet pattern directory online-- I just modified it to not increase. I am wearing a slip underneath. I have no idea how long it took, as I crochet on the bus. Maybe 20 rides? I'm pretty happy with it...... for my first article of clothing. I like pineapples. mmmmm. pineapples.
So this is a turtle I crocheted for my roommate. Technically it isn't freestyle, as I did base it on the infamous "Baby Misty Turtle"-- sans diaper. The shell does come off, though. if you like naked turtles. This is the first animal I have put together. I didnt have the velcro closure on the shell yet when I took the photos-- hence the safety pin. I like his eyelids. I bet you like naked turtles. pervs.
Hello-- Does anyone know where I could find a tute for a seed bead necklace (like a previous post, sea-weedish necklace)-- it looks like a vine, (I am sorry I dont have a better description) hang on I will draw it in paint.... http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/lovelyplayfellow/itistooanecklace2.jpg and I think I understand the general idea of how to make it, but I dont understand if you should only have one strand of string throughout the whole thing, etc. anyone have any tips, or know of an online tute? Thanks----
