i made myself some silver-on-silver (well, actually on steel, heh) and they're part of my personal collection now:

lately i've been leaning toward iridescent stuff:

2  UPDATED: stretched earlobe jewelry (IMG HEAVY) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by synthecide on: February 22, 2007 08:32:55 AM
i work with resin and i've used it to make all sorts of plugs and stuff...

so i updated this by restoring the links to old photos and adding some new photos as my technique has improved some. 

these were the famous 3/4" gold leaf-filled gold-plated tunnels i made for a friend

then i started making them with silver leaf in steel tunnels

having fun with rose buttons Smiley

winter themed

conversation heart candy plugs

more Valentine's themed

tunnels filled with sand and shells

plugs with handcuffs...haha

acrylic tunnels with resin and wisdom teeth

newsprint plugs

with faceted gems inlaid

body modification themed body jewelry!

and a bunch of random ones:

and some ones that i can put regular earrings through
i've given away a lot of pairs to friends to see if they have any negative reactions to the resin.  so far, so good.  i feel a lot more comfortable filling tunnels though, because it's safer for close skin contact

3  ideas for baby wipes cover/cozy in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by synthecide on: February 22, 2007 02:18:17 AM
i use a lot of baby wipes (not because i have a baby, but because they are useful for quick cleaning and such)
i'd like to keep them out on my bathroom counter, but they are kind of ugly.  i want to make some sort of reusable cover for the package.  it looks like this (it's not in a hard container)

i was thinking papier mache or maybe duct tape like this toaster cover thread

any ideas?

4  kitchen cabinets and contact paper (ETA: photos) in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by synthecide on: February 21, 2007 10:20:50 PM
so i've tried to read all the posts i could find on this
i just 'took the plunge'
i contact papered a corner of one of my laminate cabinet doors, and painted acrylic paint over it
i'm in a rented apartment, so i need a solution for these cabinets that is temporary.  i'm hoping once the paint dries on the contact paper, i'll still be able to peel the contact paper off without damaging the door.

i'd kill for some painted cabinets, because then i could actually DO something with them.  fake wood laminate is useless and gross.  i tried
replacing the hardware but nicer hardware didn't look right.

i'm crossing my fingers that this contact paper and paint idea could solve the ugly cabinet problem

does anyone know if contact paper gets harder to remove as time passes?  i'll be removing it in about four and a half months.

here's what my cabinets look like

here's the corner i contact papered, and the different spots i tested out paints

here's what the inside of the cabinet looks like

i think today i'm going to blow dry the contact paper to see how it stands up to heat.  i'm not sure how long i'm going to leave it up for...my boyfriend says at least a few days.  i'm trying to think of ways to 'wear' the paper, the same way it'd get worn out in a kitchen by heat, moisture, oil, dirt, etc
