heres my fur babies:D


lovelys almost 14 and has cat dementia. she loves boxes and (not to furry) blankeys. she is in a previous box that a swap loot came in Cheesy so she would probably be happy just with a box lol!!!


dachi is almost 4 and has depression, anxiety attacks, sensitive skin and stomach problems. Tongue
but she has the nicest personality and is so funny. she loves toys, sitting near my chicken and watching her peck for food, sitting on my shoulder and having me scratch her tummy or head

Sylvie,  the sugar skulls usually aren't edible but that's simply due to the handling and the non edible things on it. There is nothing toxic in them, so if you want to eat them I wouldn't put the sequins on them, since I have no idea what they used in making them. But the sugar skulls themselves are sugar, meringue powder and a little bit of water.

if you make edible sugar skulls, use gloves and use a royal icing mix(for decorating) if you want to eat them, like i did for this one

remember, if you hold them too long they will start crumbling

64  first ever sugar skulls + halloween/day of the dead shrine. 8 pics in Halloween Decor and Parties by deadbathducky on: October 19, 2009 07:38:10 PM
a couple of months ago for a multicultural art thing at school i made sugar skulls. im posting them now because its almost halloween/ day of the dead time! yay. (forgive my old looking craft table lol)

these sugar skulls arent traditional, and arent the best ever i know, but i like them :)plus they didnt break, which almost never happens when i first try something! lol

i used this recipe
http://mexicansugarskull.com/sugar_skulls/instructions.html
i already had molds at school, but the same place(as the recipe) also sells molds
http://mexicansugarskull.com/sugar_skulls/index.html
then i just made up a royal icing recipe for the outside(the blue and big one). the other i just used glitter glue lol(i kinda like it. its more zombie-ish lol)




now this one i made just recently for a more halloweeney shrine for metal vyxen(she said i could post a pic) it isnt quite complete, but i like it so far. maybe people have suggestions??
the skull is made like the others, but has little gems and sequins on it too. the background is tissue paper with skully scatters glued on. and a little charm bat
i bought the skeleton at a 2 dollar store and cut it in half then glued it to the box. maybe ill put fake grass or dirt around it? the pumpkin is like a little lantern in its hand.
the other side shows candy. a bottle of filled with small handmade polyclay donuts(im going to add a ribbon around the cork), a "nano" style chupachup (strawberry and cream flavour),a warhead(sour candy) and some mini candy skulls.





everything in the shrine is shiny because i put acrylic sealant on it.


c&c welcome!

quarantine opened my parcel so some of the items were floating in the box, but thankfully none were brokened Grin im kinda tired so there will be spelling errors, sorry!


first off, four cryptid stamp magnets. we have two giant animals (giant shark and i think giant dog/guineapig? i should know what it is but im soooo tired from exam study. maybe wildfyre can illuminate better lol)
also sassquatch and... is that? YES!!! even through wildfyre lives in usa she found me an australian stamp with a bunyip on it (aboriginal cryptid i love!) that is so totally cool!!!!


next is for my neice. my sisters is alot older then me so im only 2 years older then my neice. good thing about us being so close in age is we like the same things. i asked for a nessie or dragon pendant/ jewellery item for her and got these!!(dont worry she never goes online and wont see. she alreayd knows shes getting something cryptid from me lol! Tongue)

and the bestest of this bestest cryptid package..... shrine!!! dedicated to the old sideshows which had those attractions like mermaids, mothman and such!!each "exhibit" has a little sign and theres a gorgous replica of an old map in the top half! i think she made most of the items too !!cryptid heaven lol!!!


closeups. the sides and top. plus a little bead thing on the inside on the bottom draw. i think its meant to be a golem(rock cryptid) at least thats what it reminds me of lol! left side shows "unknown alien" and the posters of mothman and gargantua the gorilla!other side shows a baby giant octopus and a stamp of it, plus a mothman lavea!!! squeee!!


inside contents. dedicated to proving the existance of cryptids! sassquatch embryo and mongolian death worm, customs took label off ;(. plus beads, jewel and dragon!!)bottom has kraken tentacle and sea monster eggs, plus my fave spider,a spiny leaf spider!!!

I haven't done studs yet, but it's the same basic concept as putting in a snap (possibly easier), and I know how to do snaps.

I'm not too varied in my leather skills, I know belts and bracelets and coin wallets. But with two sets of alphabet stamps and a few different colours of dye and acrylic paint you can get a lot of variety in what you can make.

on the studs issue, they are kinda easier then snaps. 1 piece for each stud.

CRAFT TIP!!!!
another way to do studs is to use split pins. i had this bag to stud in the RHPS swap and didnt know how i was going to do it(i had the wrong studs at the time and couldnt find any in the shops)

i made a small cut in the seam of the lining and then poked the pins through and "split" the backs lol(use a nail file or something to split the backs so your fingers dont hurt lol).then sewed the lining back up. it takes more time then normal studding but worked fine Grin
