1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ceramic Tile Coasters - SEALANT HELP! on: February 28, 2012 06:03:31 PM
HI Lisa,

I have sort of found an answer to my problem.  I noticed that I can use multiple layers of Polycrylic with the proper drying time.  They do seem to hold up.  I searched google using search term:  "polycrylic tips and techniques".  Although this took me to many wood crafting forums, the information is very useful.

I hope that is helpful.

Good luck on your sealing!

Hi All,

I have been creating stock in a business that I am starting, but am at the point where I am ready to formally file the proper paperwork for Sales Tax, state, IRS, etc. 

My products are coasters, magnets, key ring plaques and coat racks, most of which are hand painted.  I do not want to limit the company name to just these products, as I have a 1,000 ideas Wink

So far, I have thought of the following:

Jenny's Junk House
The Squared House
House Squared (House2)
This Squared Home

I am NOT good with words.  At least not as good as I am with paints, which doesn't say much!)

I respect all the crafters on this site and could not think of a better group of people to ask.

Thank you in advance.

Nobody has offered any advice so far, but this is my second attempt. 

I have decided (as of today) on Craft Charmer.  Does anybody have any helpful feedback?

Thank you very much
Thank you

I have been looking into resin, but am starting to think its just too expensive.  It would raise the cost of my products to be too high to remain competitive.
Thank you for the information.

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Key Ring Plaque with 3 emblems (4 pics) on: November 03, 2011 06:56:29 PM
I have created this Key Ring Plaque, but it is not complete.  As usual, I am not saavy with a camera and could not get a good picture.  I have not put the hardware for the keys on yet.  Also, I'm not sure how to finish the edging.  Right now, it is just the plain wood.  I was thinking of painting the edging white. 

Any opinions, good or bad would be appreciated. 

Thank you!

9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: Trying on Items at Craft Fairs on: November 03, 2011 07:40:45 AM
Hi Lindsey,

Sorry for the late reply, but I had to tell you that the mirror is a great idea.  A friend and I went to an Art Festival and we ended up separated.  Later she told me that she wanted to buy a pair of earrings, but the booth did not have a mirror and I was nowhere around to give my opinion.  LOL. 

So, moral of the story, don't forget the mirror!

Here is another set of coasters that I have free hand painted.  I am having a hard time getting a good picture that shows the richness in the color, but hopefully you get the idea.  They look much brighter/better in person. 

Any good or bad advice would be advisable.  I am going to sell these for approximately $25/set.  They are one of a kind and hand painted, so I am hoping the price seems justified.  Please give me your feedback, good or bad. 

Thank you
