2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Roctopus - Hand Painted Guitar Strap on: January 01, 2013 08:43:29 AM
After racking my brain for months trying to come up with a Christmas gift for my picky boyfriend, that was not only dirt cheap, but awesome and meaningful as well, I had the idea to make him an octopus(we've got a mutual soft spot for the critter) guitar strap. It turned out pretty well and he loves it!


I bought an inexpensive leather strap online and used acrylic paint with Liquitex gloss medium & varnish to seal it. The strap had some texture to begin with but I sanded it to give it a little more. I used double sided tape to stick in on to a long piece of cardboard to make working on it (and storing it) easier.

I made this for my cat Steve. Sometimes I use it too.


I think it's working.



Here's a little flower tute. I'm SUPER bored today.

GeekyKiki~ Yeah it's all by eye. I just take one little piece at a time. Doing it in pencil first makes it a lot easier too! I always stress about "mistakes", we are all our own worst critics.

I have been compulsively doodling for the last few weeks. I love it!
I made this one for a friend. It's 9" x 9", made with pens and markers.

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Nature inspired shrinky earrings on: October 10, 2009 12:01:30 PM
I haven't posted any jewelry here in FOREVER and I'm really bored today so....

These are three pairs of earrings I made with shrink plastic. I use Prismacolor pencils on translucent shrink plastic that I sand with fine sandpaper so the pencil will go on nice and thick. Once it has "shrunk" I use a sharpie to color the sides and back black. Then I spray on several thin coats of Rustoleum crystal clear enamel to protect the whole piece from scratching.
It can be a little tedious but I think it's worth it in the end!

nom_de_plume~ I just use scissors and then after it's been shrunk I sand all the edges smooth.

Oh the tutorial. I know I promised to do it FOREVER ago and I will. Sometimes I just need I just need a swift kick in the pants about these things!
