1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / etching sterling on: August 24, 2010 10:53:00 AM
Hey all,
I was wondering if anyone knew if an idea I had would work...

I was wanting to take my sandblaster that I use for etching glass, to etch some sterling silver discs. Does anyone know if this would work? Especially if the etched part was then put in a patina?

TIA.

It's been years since I've posted here!
Found a hot pink bottle at Hobby Lobby and decided it needed a sandblasted Alice in Wonderland silhouette. I love my little sandblaster. Smiley

I was looking at trying pmc3. How many charms pendants rings etc...  Will each bag size make? I was really looking at the 10 oz bag. TIA!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / cutting stainless steel on: November 06, 2009 10:53:20 AM
I wanted to get into making pendants and such, but with my sister in law's allergies I though stainless would be a better route. Will a Jewlers Saw cut through stainless? Which blades? Is there another (cheap) option? I have a dremel tool as well, will anything work with that?

Thanks!

I haven't been around in forever! I really love the stuff on preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'blackhelmetapparel.com') but just can't bring myself to pay 20-30 dollars for shirt plus shipping. So I went with the tattoo look and here's what I came up with. The back of the shirt:

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / For the Love of Horses on: September 24, 2008 01:08:34 PM
Made for a friend who loves horses (like me!) and had her baby on Sept. 9th. I finally finished the quilt. I just did what I call "crazy quilting" all over it - I guess it's a little like stippling but I went over previous stitches. I'm still learning free motion so it was more for me to learn consistency. Now it just needs a binding...

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / making a perma- cutting table/bench on: September 02, 2008 08:14:49 PM
I also have this posted in the home section, but thought I'd get better response from my fellow quilters!

So long story short, hubby and I are moving. There is a huge shed in the back yard that hubby says is mine all mine!   So of course its going to be the crafting lair. I am in the process of cleaning it up and I want to make the workbench it currently has into my fabric cutting table... I basically want to be able to cut ANYWHERE on this bench (it stretches the length of one wall).

So my question is, has anyone heard, or know of any sort of self healing spray... rubber spray, hell, even bar resin I could put down on the bench to make it so I can use a rotary cutter on it?

My first thought was the stuff for spray on truck bed liners but I figure I would make huge cuts in that stuff on top of its textured.

My next though is bar resin?? would it scratch/cut? Plus how exspensive would that be??

I'm trying a product called Plasti-dip and hopefully that'll work.

Any other ideas?

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Looking in my windows on: July 23, 2008 12:32:05 PM
I created this about a year ago, but realized that I have never posted it here. I bought an old 6 pane window at a garage sale. I sanded it down and never repainted it. My house has a very vintage and rustic (but elegant) feel to it. I then took different scrapbooking papers and cut them to the size of the windows. I had pictures from my wedding printed 5X7 using Mpix.com (love them! I even had one printed on metallic and its gorgeous!) Voila! The word family and the barbed wire was cut on my Dad's vinyl cutter.

10  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 28 ENTRIES / The Ric Rac-ish office chair! (5 pics) on: June 01, 2008 06:10:16 PM
I'm very excited! This is my first ever challenge!

The Back Story: It just so happened that I was planning on redoing an office chair when this challenge popped up. My mom called me and said they had bought my dad a new office chair. His blue one, although extremely comfortable was dusty (he sandblasts rocks) and grimey. I told her I'd take it! I happened to be going to Ft. Worth to visit my aunt. While out antiquing I happened across an entire bold (about 4 yards) of this fabric for 10 bucks! Heck yea! It goes PERFECT in my sewing room!

So, Voila, The Ric Rac-ish chair:


The Before:


And more detailed after shots:






I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!!  Grin
