I haven't ever used this in the bedroom sense, but you could easily make a thin chocolate ganache for body frosting.

Just heat heavy cream in the microwave and pour on top of a small bag of chocolate chips.  (I'd start with 1 cup and go from there). Let it sit for 30 seconds or so and then stir till smooth.  It'll start out really runny and thicken as it cools.  Add more heavy cream till it's the consistency you like.  If you let it get super thick it makes bad-ass cupcake/cake/eat directly from a spoon frosting.

I'd use a synthetic brush to paint or it might smell like wet dog when you clean it...

I know some of the kits come with stencils (I've been to way too many bachelorette parties...) and I'm sure you could easily exacto some acetate or other thin plastic to make your own. Smiley

I'm sure you'll have lots of fun.... ;-)

I love this!  I made the original case, and now I want to copy yours as well!!! Smiley
83  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Raku Bowl on: March 19, 2007 09:27:46 AM
I miss my pottery class.  Embarrassed This bowl is handbuilt (coil method)- no wheels necessary, but for the firing, I suggest befriending someone with a kiln and raku pit, or someone in a local college with ties to the art department.  I wish those items weren't so darned expensive - and were apartment friendly.  Undecided



The glaze is supposed to be all blue-green, but the red area is where it got too close to the fire and fired hotter than intended.  Normally, not so great, but for this piece, I think it's pretty.  I like leaving finger marks - they ended up like seeds - it's my watermelon bowl!

If you haven't tried pottery, but you like handicrafts - I warn you, it's addictive...you will love it and dream of owning a gas kiln...and if you're like me, you will get clay on every item of clothing you own and get it in your hair as you throw pots.

the laceup back is fantastic - it really makes the shirt extra-super-special.

That sounds good - I was hoping to have as the base of the night light a plastic or metal grid that would be permanent, so I could make black paper templates I could put on like the original lite brite by attaching the corners with four of the pegs and be able to switch them out easily.  I'll have to check out that ribbon - thank you!  Cheesy
