Yay! I'm glad it helped!  Cheesy

Absolutely!
Do you think that is the method or similar, to make that great piece from CF Originals:

I just adore her work, and that ivory/bone look!  I am so excited to try it out,
and Michael's has Sculpy for .99 this week Smiley YAY!

I just did my first bottle cap pendant this week, just with ribbon and beads and glitter, sealed with
the fab 3D Crystal Lacquer.  I bought my bottle caps on Etsy, like $4 for a hundred.
good Luck!

3  ~Stevie Nicks Forest Fairy Sculpted Pendant~ in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by TimelessBarbara on: March 03, 2008 09:45:55 PM
Hi everyone!

I made a neat little Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac singer, for those of you under 25, LOL)
domino pendant with Polymer Clay over the weekend.
I hand sculpted the little leaves, added three small flowers, with AB Sworovski crystals for centers,
and then dusted with some gold powder on the tips of the leaves.
I am going to drill the top, and hang as a pendant.
Here are some pics~




For the back, I covered with matching clay, then used a decorative rubber stamp to make
an inlay look, and rubbed some gold over that, too~


Then, baked, cooled, and glazed with Eberhard Fimo Glaze.
I am enjoying this clay stuff! LOL.
Hope you like the pics Smiley

This one is a Christmas Ornament for a friend, I hope you like it Smiley

5  Re: RESIN - Embedding in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by TimelessBarbara on: November 18, 2007 11:49:37 AM
What do you like to embed into resin?

So far I've tried beads, glitter, shells, stickers, eyeshadow (to give resin a cool frosty look).  I'm going to have a try at embedding natural objects like leaves and seeds.

Any other ideas?
Tiny screws, mini shaped confett (moons stars hearts, etc)i:

holographic shreds (at a party store, the kind you put in gift baskets, just cut/shred into tiny pieces), tiny squares of fabric or some of the new fancy yarns, coloured candle chips, small decorative buttons, vintage stamps, tiny keys for locks, etc.  Does that sound good? LOL..

Thanks everyone.
First I do a thin layer of clear resin and set the bones in that. Once it's cured I mix up a batch of resin, add pigments and  pour it into the molds.

here are some pictures of the finished jewelry






WOW.  I love to see new and unique pieces,
great job!
These should be especially big sellers this time of year, with the great Pumpkin just around the corner...
LOVE them all!

8  Stevie Nicks on Fabric :) in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions by TimelessBarbara on: July 27, 2007 09:39:57 AM
Ok, just tried this Smiley

First, after trying to iron the wax paper to the fabric for 20 minutes, it still fell right off the back.
SO, I got out my Krylon Spray adhesive I use for embroidery.
Sprayed a REGULAR sheet of printer paper, the plain kind, with a little weight to it.  Then laid my fabric, a thinner white cotton, flat on top, and smoothed it out.  Spray is VERY sticky, so I trimmed any excess edges of the paper so it was all fabric and paper together, no "more" of either one hanging over the edges.
Ran it thru my inkjet printer, a Canon i3000 or something, LOL.
Set it at "transfer paper" setting (which is why my first one's letters are backwards, DUH me!) and then highest resolution setting.
Here are my results, I didn't make anything pretty out of them, they are just sheets of fabric.  BUT...the good news, the regular paper just peeled off the back after printing, and the fabric is not sticky AT ALL, ready to stitch into a amulet bag, or any little thing.
Before I flipped the image, LOL:

Now knowing to flip the text:

Now, I have to figure out how to treat the fabric to make it washable,
but for now, am overjoyed THIS worked!
I have a serger so can make little wall hangings or all kinds of fun stuff..thank you guys so much for your help!

10  Adding Scents to Tags/Papers? in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by TimelessBarbara on: July 24, 2007 11:57:28 AM
  Hi everyone!
I have seen some very cool "Scented" hang tags on eBay, and I would like to know if anyone here has added scent to their tags, or papers, etc. and if so, what did you use, and how did you add it?
I would love to add some scents like vanilla, cinnamon, woodsy/rain,
apple pie, etc. to them.  I am thinking candle/soap scents?
If so, how would I add that to PAPER?  H  E  L  P!  LOL..
Here are the tags I looked at, I asked the seller how she added the scent, but she never replied:

Also, is there a tutorial for the distressing/staining of them? I know you can do it somehow with coffee or tea soaking?
Thanks for any help!
Barbara
