hi all,

here's a little piece that I made a while ago (another school project) but a real conversation piece that's fairly easy to replicate.

there's a bit of direction on the project at:
http://projekt_j.tripod.com/projektj/id4.html

I also made up a set of visual instructions that were a part of the whole package, but I can't seem to find them now... I'll keep you posted!

That is really neat!  Thanks for the instructions.  At first I could not tell what it was.  I think glitter glue and/or colored sticks would make this project, well, colorful!

Thanks again!

For those of you who couldn't tell what it is, join my club. It's like contemparary matchstick art...shaped like a beerbottle...i think if you left the beerbottle in it, it would make an awesome vase. Maybe I'm just not reading the instructions right. *sigh*

I guess the photo is kind of hard to read, sorry.  I'm just so used to seeing this little guy around that I recognize him instantly.  this project was designed to be a 'decoy' for a glass beer bottle (long story, don't ask) so I took a picture of it where the original bottle was found, in the grass (forensics- I told you not to ask!) anyway, the sticks actually go inside the bottle before it's broken, so the matchstick sculpture is a solid. now that I think of it, a hollow decoy might have been better. hmmmm........

I did, and it was actually a spur of the moment thing.  It was all part of a larger assignment in which I had planned on wrapping the bottle in plaster, but I just didn't like how it came out.  so the night before the whole thing was due, I stayed up late filling the bottle with glue and sticks, then slept a few hours, woke up and smashed the bottle, wrapped the whole thing in cloth (to transport) and made it to school with time to spare before my grand 'unveiling'.  all in all, I'm glad I stuck with it and pulled a plan B seemingly out of my but!
