531  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Can you dye with food colour? on: April 17, 2007 04:25:49 PM
OK I know you can dye with Kool aid. All very well but there is no Kool aid in Australia. And I know you can dye with easter egg dye.
But can you dye with food colouring from a bottle? And if so, how?
I buy food colouring for use as ink in my pen because it's a lot cheaper than  ink, and I remember I used to dabble in colouring things with it when I was a kid, but is it possible to dye something permanently?

Hey....red cabbage. Once I fed it to my chickens and they then passed bright turquoise green poo. Scary. I guess it's because it's an indicator.

The blue one is beautiful. How did you get two colours? Did you tye die or something?

I need to get the other photos somehow.....
My brother seems to think every photo seems to be fantastic! He's like "that one's bad cause it's framed wrongly. Bad pose. The ears are blurry."
Why? I'm not a photographer, I'm a crafty person!
536  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A man and his horse :D on: April 16, 2007 04:26:39 AM

Unfortunately my brother has command of the camera!
I made a cute horse - I do proportionate plushies see. And the horse is about 30cm high at the shoulder Cheesy very cuddly.
They didn't seem to have any wool felt so I had to choose between 100% acrylic and 100% viscose. I chose viscose. Baaaaad choice - it tore so easily!
But the horse was finished. I did a photoshoot of him in the garden with Grantley (that's the guy) but my brother said the photos were too terrible so he stuck the good ones in a layout. So you can't see all of the horse...but isn't he cute?

EDIT:
Nabbed the photos while my brother wasn't looking! Here's a little more of the horse:


Compulsory "artsy" black and white shot:

Silly ladder shot:

And me with the horse and Grant:

There.
537  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Pokemon Dress! on: April 16, 2007 04:05:22 AM
Oh that's so great! Fantastic!

I'd love to make myself a dress as I have a small bust and it's really hard to find ones that fit - but I'm not sure something like that would stay up on me Sad

Good stencil but I loathe Panic at the Disco. Oh well...Cheesy
That's the thing that I don't like about shirts - having a square design. It's very hard to avoid, isn't it?
You did a great job!

What IS freezer paper? We have greaseproof paper over here, and waxed paper, and baking paper but nothing called FREEZER paper!
So I'm really confused!

Yeah, I know what you mean about the bandshirt. Only bandshirt I have is a Feeder one - I wasn't going to pay 17 pounds for one that was pink anyway (Hate pink) so I stencilled one myself!
I need to get photos....
540  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Re: where to buy blank tees on: April 15, 2007 05:31:20 AM
I do like stencilling but I think I was lucky cause I turned up at a sale time.
I got a $4 singlet from Tightrope - worked a treat!
However often it's a bit hard to get a shirt that isn't ultra singletty cause I don't have big boobs Cheesy Yeah, I'd try cotton on... I don't know where in Australia you are but in Canberra there are way too many shops for the population, so there are a lot of girly stores selling cheap t shirts and singlets.
