ok, i'm turning to my fellow craftsters to figure out how to make this really cool frame.
http://www.motherdigital.info/archives/2005/01/3d_frame_object.html

obviously I would need some heavy clear vinyl from JoAnn's or something.
i was thinking instead of making a wooden frame, i could use jar lids, cookie cutters or something a little more interesting than wood. some other shape than round.

i just can figure out how to connect everything without making the object permanently sealed inside. which i guess would not be bad, but it's not ideal. and if the frame is made so that it can be reopened, how can i keep the vinyl taut?

i'm sure with some experimenting, i could pull something together. but i just want to hear some other thoughts.

thanks Smiley

The first thing that comes to my mind is embroidery hoops and springform pans, and although I'm not sure how the pans would work, you might be able to use the same kind of latch to tighten things up. Other that, some other mechanics would have to be involved, and I'm certainly no expert!

maybe you could reproduce it with clear bowls , use two place you item inside and the use some sort of band to hide the join .

i dont know how the object would be held there though ......

bowls and plates have rims though which could be a problem.

You could also use perspex , maybe melt it around a plate the same way you would a record bowl , hmmmm

I dont know the dangers of melting perspex in a oven though .

Actually if the perspex worked you could just drill holes into it and it would be held with nuts and bolts so you could remove the item if you wanted


That was proberly no help at all lol

I haven;t had a chance to reply but we are on the same train of thought.
yesterday i was at AC Moore, had to pee really badly so i ran to the back of the store to use the potty. i'm stolling back out, felling very happy and light. i look to my left and there is a mecca of embroidery hoops. the lightbulb went off, so i bought some.
i didn't have enough cash to go to joanne's and buy vinyl so i made a prototype with some sandwhich baggies and tape. it worked really well. now i just need to work on ways to attach actual vinyl to the hoops....glue i guess.

i will take pics and post them later.

i had another frame idea today. so i may as well share:
remember the game connect four? i thought i could take a bunch of pics and either crop them in interesting ways or shrink them, glue them to the checker and use the board itself as a frame. when you get bored w/ the layout you can rearrange the photos too Smiley
i'm gonna buy a game and try it.
