Thanks, Diane B. I'm new to everything polymer, so tips and advice are always appreciated.

This is another spoon I made today. It's easy to get addicted.

Thank you for the compliments, everyone.

25  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Tetris silverware: Classy. on: January 13, 2007 04:29:28 PM

Last year in my art class, we had to make inexcusably dorky silverware in the style of some artist. I chose Roy Lichtenstein, and pumped out these classy gems.

It's snowing in Seattle and I'm too sick to go out and rendezvous, so instead I decided it would be an excellent idea to recreate the pure, unadulterated beauty of my original set with something I loved even more: Tetris.

You will need:[/b]
White Sculpey clay
Acrylic paint
Something to cut clay with (a razor works best)
An oven
Mod Podge sealer (optional, only if you're feeling fancy)

For now, I just made a Tetris fork.

1. Grab your eating utensil and a hunk of the clay. Cover the handle of the silverware completely, and then smooth it out and make it even.

2. Once that is complete (it takes some time to make it just right), take some clay, flatten it out a little bit and cut your shape with a razor. I used my Lichtenstein butter knife, putting it to good use. It worked fine.

3. Attach your shapes by gently pressing down pieces onto handle.

4. Shove the sucker into the oven on an aluminum foil covered cookie sheet. The directions on the package of Sculpey says to bake at 275-degrees (130C) for 15 minutes per 6mm. I put it in for 10 minutes and it came out just fine.

5. Wait for it to cool, obviously, and then whip out your acrylics and paint. My L-shape got detached, so I'll add it after everything else is painted.

6. Don't let your cat/dog/household pet near uncooked Sculpey, or his/her hair gets all up in it.

7. After I finished painting, I waited for it to dry and then I covered it in Mod Podge, just to give it that glossy shine I have come to know and love.

Wasn't that EASY? Of course, you can do anything your young heart desires, not just Tetris. They are more for beauty than practicality, and I wouldn't reccomend sending them through a dish washer (however, I haven't tried).

You can totally impress your easily-impressed friends.
26  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / 1994 Apple PowerBook 150, whatever shall I do with you? on: October 08, 2006 02:26:37 PM
I have obtained a 1994 Apple PowerBook 150, 240-500 MB hard drive, 2 bit grayscale, totally sweet.
It doesn't work, or it doesn't have the proper cords, or whatever, but basically I just have it and want to do something with it. I NEED IDEAS. A picture frame? Some sort of clothes drying rack? Use the ball mouse in some kind of motion machine?
IDEAS, COMMENCE. Thanksalotagos.

29  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / hold the phone!: A CONNECT FOUR BAG. on: July 10, 2006 07:52:34 PM
So, everybody knows that the only way to solve problems is with Connect Four, but it is difficult to do so when you can't lug around the old beat up Connect Four box everywhere you do in anticipation of conflict.

What is a girl (or boy) to do?




I'm not much of a bag maker, but I think this turned out really well. There isn't much to it. You just need Connect Four, box and all, and some masking tape (or, if you have skills, use some of that imagination of yours).

I put a piece of nice, clean, white cardboard behind the yellow plastic part and cut up the box to make the parts of the bag that weren't the yellow plastic part. I just used white masking tape on the inside and outside of the it to make it stay together. The masking tape really gives it that "Oh, hey, this is a beat up boardgame box," look (or at least that is my excuse).

I used a strap from another bag of mine on this because my resources were limited. But, I'm sure that you can use masking tape or fabric or something to make a strap.

It's actually functional, I just slid the pieces in there for all my Connect Four-ing needs. If you just want the look, you can glue them in there for maximum security. Or something.
