WOW OH WOW

I totally love this mask and I REALLY LOVE the idea of taking it a step further for other costume items.

As a belly dancer I'm always looking for new and creative costuming ideas. Do you think this technique would work to make a bra or belt that could be backed with fabric?

As a belly dancer I'm always looking for new and creative costuming ideas. Do you think this technique would work to make a bra or belt that could be backed with fabric?

This could absolutely be used to make a bra; here are your options:
--Find a plastic mannequin to use as the mold form; follow directions as written. make threads on mannequin, dry, and lift away. Then, attach threads structure to bra or belt front with hand stitching
--Get a firm bra that will hold its shape; do this technique right on top of the bra cups, and then DO NOT lift away (ie: you are draping the glue-y threads over the bra and then LEAVING it on) use a thread that matches bra (black on black) and then use Treasure Gold wax paint to highlight texture. secure with a few hand stitches. should be permament--glue will bond to the bra material.
--probably a million other methods that i can't think of yet Smiley

Also, Check out this awesome mask that KyaStar made using my tutorial:

My husband thought that it was your hair also, until I made the picture bigger for him. Then he was all "Whoa, that's pretty spiffy!" And he's not a crafty person!

I think that using this method might be possible to create interesting works of art - I'm thinking Christmas ornaments, armature for beaded objects, possibly even a fake bonsai tree. I have a lot of thread and other stuff just lying around. It would be nice to do something pretty with it.

Oooh! Earrings! Pendants!

Well I'm going to have to use this idea. ^_^ Thanks so much for being willing to share!

I love it when people think off the beaten path. It is SO much more of an interesting road.

JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby both have them.  It's a pretty common product for craft stores to carry. ^_^

This mask is so pretty! The effect of the gold leafing over the brown thread is just beautiful. What a great idea!

Love this. The tutorial is wonderful. Love all the ideas that stemmed out of this. Intimidated for sure to post my entry, but will anyway. I actually love this. Can you get that gold rub on in different colors and metalics?

you CAN get the wax paste in other colors, tho i think it's only silver, other shades of gold, and *maybe* a copper or something.... Smiley

happy crafting

You can get RubNBuff in more colors than that - its not quite the same as the wax paste, but the effect is similar. I once had RubNBuff in a lovely shade of iridescent blue.
