Craftsunderground - I'm so glad you like it!! AND I'm super thankful it made it in one piece.  There was some mad anxiety lol

The ship was formed out of a wire coat hanger (definitely not the most easiest thing to bend as I smacked myself in the face a few times trying to tame the thing) plus regular wire and cardboard.  Then I paper mached tissue paper over the form.  I didn't want this to be very heavy considering I accidentally made it sort of...well, huge.  I'm not great with scale sometimes... The figurehead was molded afterwards from wire and plastic rings then also paper mached as well to blend with the ship.  I will def post this in the Misc thread with my progress shots later Smiley

That insect is definitely fun!  Wouldn't a whole curio-cabinet full of interesting insects made like that be cool?

Geekgirl - those skull flowers really are to die for  Grin and I've seen the whole rusty nail thing, but the pencils!?  That adds such a nice touch to the atmosphere of the piece.

I received my package from Craftsunderground, and guys - she did such an amazingly wonderful job!

Behold, "Cookie" -










She even came with her very own shelf AND interchangeable accessories!








My goodness. I can't even think of where to begin; I love every single detail about her.  The salt and pepper shaker caps for earrings? so clever. The measuring teaspoons as an arm and the cheese grater body? I can't even.  The fact that she came holding a martini and a paint brush is so perfectly me. How did you know?

I love all the accessories too! and the shelf is definitely a nice touch.  I couldn't have dreamed up a better crafted gift than this one, so thank you!!  My husband was even tickled, and he is a fickle one when it comes to crafted things. Wink

It was a busy weekend so I didn't get much work done on this thing but I'm putting some time into it today.  Everything's coming together nicely but there is so many different little components.  I should probably make myself a checklist lol.

Here's another little teaser because I couldn't resist -



Hope everyone has a good monday! <3

made some good progress on the thing this weekend as well Smiley so far I'm pleased with how things are looking.  Going to try and experiment this week with a couple techniques to try and achieve the look I'm going for - Fingers crossed!

this epoxy sounds interesting, I may have to look into that for future use.  currently I am using tacky glue and E6000 and its so true about the fumes. sometimes I wonder if I'm seeing visible plumes from it lol, but then again my studio could just not be properly vented in the first place LOL.

Thought I'd post a little teaser since I'm feeling mischievous today  Grin
