This scale has never worked properly. Seriously. It is always off one way or the other. Finally, I got frustrated and decided to make it the "Perfect" scale. One that all women should have.
Before


During








After





On this mosaic I used stained glass, millefiore and gray grout. If you would like to see the WIP, check the set on my Flickr. Smiley

Feels good to be mosaicing again. Smiley Comments, suggestions and questions always welcome!

can that be used as a garden/stepping stone?
seriously, those are amazing.
you should sell those, it's cute and it'd get girlies everywhere feeling good.

great work!

It could be used outside in the garden. And I did think about the idea of selling them, but no time right now for making them. Smiley

these scales are amazing - ive never seen anything like it. i gave up on scales a while ago as they do nothing but make me feel double worse about myself. but these remind us all how weight isnt always the most important part of life. you have another guarenteed sale if you ever start selling these  Smiley

The lettering is printed on cardstock, then put under some clear water glass to make it look "real". The feet I cut out on my Score1 cutter. It rocks!

I think it would be impossible, however if you could get it to say perfect when you stepped on it I would pay more than $100 for it.......not even decorated!

pretty sure someone thats handy with electric wire could figure it out. just backlit it with leds and have the switch turn on from pressure when stepped on. have the black lettering against a dark background so you can't see it until the light turns on, something frosted over the lights to diffuse them...
sorry rambling thoughts. but it is possible and shouldn't cost much!

I've never liked scales because I think it's a waste of floor space. My weight doesn't change much...if I ever see my stomach grow then I'll worry, hahaha. But I do adore this and wouldn't mind it on my floor at all!
