1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Interesting info see article donate/re-use art supplies. on: March 10, 2017 04:07:34 AM
I am always looking for inspiration art supplies and came accross this article about donate/re-use art supplies in USA.
See www.artistsnetwork.com/art-supplies-thrift-store-creative-reuse
There are other cities that have this, one is mentioned in the comments. Article is february 2017. If anyone knows of more places like this add them here. I am not in US but think a list of this would be helpful.
2  EUROPE / ITALY / Fabric & Beads shops Italy online? on: February 27, 2017 05:10:27 AM

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Renaissance Saccoccia pocket diy? on: February 27, 2017 12:38:47 AM
I was google searching images for ideas for leftover beads and saw some accessoire on 16th century Italian paintings which caught my eye. I looked up what it is. Is a sort of pocket/pouch called saccoccia and a sort of precursor of the modern handbag.
Not sure if my post is for the bags/purses forum or more for the Costume clothes forum. Has anyone made this?
There are some pattern diy sketches if you search images.
I do not have much apparel fabric and only some too thin silk. No taffeta no brocade etc. Are there places that sell online small pieces of the richer fabrics? Does it exist fabric lookalikes of Renaissance era to buy online?
I did not use use interfacing as mention is made of inbetween fabric so used some cotton fabric.
I have plenty of seasonal Xmas/ holiday quilt cotton fabric leftovers so yesterday I spend sunday afternoon on a poinsettia saccoccia.
I have no camera so no picture alas. I handsew and go slow. Still have to do the ribbon attachment bit. Some painting show it attached to the pouch and some site write about it being on a slider/tube so it can  move around the waist.Today I continue to finish it hopefully. It is a fun project to do.
4  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / EUROPE / Kozo paper where to buy online in EU? on: January 12, 2017 12:34:30 AM

5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / AcrylicosVallejo acrylic paint Burnt Dark Rose? on: January 09, 2017 06:23:43 AM
Has anyone managed to mix something of a color similar to this? Paint chart is found at www.acrylicosvallejo.com . I only see it in this brand. In Spain they sell a small size 20 ml and in UK they sell the 60 ml have not seen the 20 ml in any online shop in EU.
Has anyone in EU ordered online  from www.artemiranda.es ?
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Stopped buying sets of coloring items, which single colors to buy? on: January 03, 2017 08:36:39 AM
Used to buy coloring sets of pencils, watercolors, acryl, pastels etc Since sets is usually the same standard colors I got thinking about buying single colors in more unusual colors/hues. A few years ago I got some single oil pastels of the gold/metallic type. Now I am looking at watercolor pencils. Things like venetian red and pompeii red caught my eye. I did buy a magenta single watercolor pencil some time ago and a pink not sure what color exactly as its number is not at the site I bought it from.If anyone has unusual single color watercolor pencils would like to know what you bought?
I like vibrant colors and seldom use neutrals. What do I buy? Smiley
