My ex fiance and I actually called things off a while ago and I threw the ring in a fire for dramatic effect, but I've been trying to learn to make rings with gemstones, so if you can manage to use clay to make it'd work I'd love it if you let me know, or if you find anything else that works out
I've used an ordinary pen a fair few times to draw pattern pieces onto fabric and it always comes out pretty easily, or you could find fabric pencils at pretty much any craft store or you could do a test with magic marker to see if it washes out okay
I had an idea for a Harley Quinn inspired Victorian costume, the skirt came out almost as I had planned, and I had intentended to wear a red and black underbust corset with it (Roethke tutorial), but with the liner I added it looks far too bulky kind of defeating it's purpose. My sewing machine isnt with me and I have no way to get to it before the con, so anything I do would have to be hand stitched. I still have a surplus of black and red fabrics but no clothes that I could just stitch together in a makeshift thing. Any ideas would be so helpful.
So my friends birthday is coming up in a few months and I would love more than anything to give him a Cthulhu flask. I was originally going to get a flask engraved to have the picture on it (I already have the flask, it's stainless steel) but according to my engravers it would run me about $50 just to get the image into their computers and then another hundred or so for engraving and I'm poor. I know I could just put a sticker or something on there, but it would eventually wear away and would only look cool for a week or two. I want something as permanent as possible, color isnt completely necessary but it would be nice. I have till March to make this a reality, any suggestions would be really appreciated.
I was out shopping yesterday and saw a necklace made out of a fork. So, instead of spend $14.95, I got a fork out of the kitchen, bent it up with jewelry tools and wire cutters, glued on eyes and added a length of hemp for a chain.
The band is super nice, they'll sign basically anything and if you stay after the show (or are 5 hours early like I was) you can hang out with them a bit. Captain Robert is hilarious by the way. They're on tour, check to see if they're going to be near you, the tickets aren't that expensive (mine was only $15 and the show was almost 4 hours long).
I have well over 1000 bottlecaps by doing this, go to a Frisbee golf course (or really anywhere else that people drink a lot, frisbee golf just seems like the best in my area) and every few feet there will be a bottle cap. You can get several hundred in about an hour.
So I was at an Abney Park concert and got the entire band (and their infinite amazingness) to sign my cane. It's a polished (or stained) body with a brass cobra head on top, all the signatures are on the wooden part. What's the best method for making sure the sharpie never comes off, even if I keep carrying it around. I was thinking of coating it in a thin layer of resin, would that work?
