21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Clear Plastic Fork Ring on: January 19, 2009 01:00:38 PM
I made this a few summers ago at my grandma's house. She had a heat gun and a lot of plastic silverware. I made others using the classic white ones but they are rather boring, this clear turned out the best, I love how the heat turned it frosty, that's the best part.

So I snapped the handle off the fork, heated it till it was pliable, I used a large paint brush with news paper wrapped around it for my ring form because I didn't have a proper one. It took several tries to get it the right fit and a few slightly burned feeling finger tips. I kept dunking the ring in water as well to cool it down to hold its shape. You could try to wear gloves, they'd have to be really smooth with no texture otherwise the texture sometimes can transfer.







Thanks

Made a doughnut and was thinking of making it into a teapot, but waited too long and was too dry, so just made it into a vase, its not that bad. And the small bottle form at the back, there is just something about it that i love, kinda sharp corners, but not.

Had to make a teapot for class, so I thought all my other stuff has some wiggle to it, so why not. It's on the small side... most of my stuff is.

I wanted the jug to be a little bigger and it was my first handle, I need a little more practice on that, but I like pulling handles. The small bottle in the middle has a little notch in the middle, I made it specifically for some of my homemade syrup. Lastly the big bowl, at first I didn't know what I could use it for, but now I think its perfect for rice. I glazed them all with different amounts of K9.

Two bottles dipped in Gold Shino glaze. I love them both, but the one on the left I love more and the one on the right, I can see myself in it! Made on the wheel.

When you shake the colourful balls, they rattle, jingle, shake. They all sound a little different I guess because of the thickness of the walls and the size of the ball on the inside. I made them on the wheel and just dripped glaze on. The cake stands were also made on the wheel and just assembled after, glazed with bone.

This is actually my first lidded form. I'm proud of how well it fits... well not perfect but its decent, but I would love to practice more lidded forms. The bottle in the middle composed of the three spheres was actually an idea I've always had in my mind, now that it's out I'm happy. The one on the right is just some other squatty bottle thing.

The one on the left was glazed with celedon. The two on the right are patin green. I love the one on the far right, its like a perfect straight roundy sides but perfectly wiggly on top. If only i knew how I made it, lols.
