11  Book of Pure Evil in Completed Projects by aethelberga on: July 13, 2011 06:58:16 PM
To the six people to whom this will be relevant, welcome. To the rest, there is a Canadian SF/Horror show (really, it defies description) called Todd and the Book of Pure Evil. DH and I always like to take something to our local SF con for the model show and the Book of Pure Evil seemed a good choice this year

The base is a hollow book shaped box we found at Michael's, and the rest is polymer clay, podgy, plaster & paint. Just like the real Book of Pure Evil, the pentagram lights up in a sinister manner.

Thanks for looking.

The Big Bad on Doctor Who this season is The Silence. This t-shirt begged to be made.

It is for my local SF con this coming weekend.

13  Vaguely historical things in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: July 07, 2011 07:43:19 PM
I haven't posted in ages, though I have been working on a bunch of little things, mostly historically themed, just playing with a bunch of techniques.

Here's a couple of shields (I was on a sword and shield kick for a while there).

I also like making fake artifacts. Here is a viking carved bone & a medieval tile fragment.

Dragons aren't specifically historical, and this one looks kind of bored.

And finally my little castle keep.
Thanks for looking.

14  Re: M&M Minis Tube Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by aethelberga on: May 03, 2011 06:21:21 PM
rec'd from bobbinalong yesterday, a large tube with a distinctly science fiction & steampunk theme

Here is everything. I can't believe she fit it all in there. Here are a few highlights

On the outside of the tube was this little USS Enterprise made of parts of a floppy disc. So cute

Plus there was a Tardis needlebook

And this gorgeous steampunk pin

There was also a tiny Stargate magnet which is downstairs on my fridge.

Thanks bobbinalong. I love everything!!

Here's what I received from aquiescent

My funky little ebook reader case, a cross stitch of Terry Pratchett's Death, and a character journal for all the books I DO read.
Thanks aquiescent. I love it. I hope your stuff arrives soon (I knew I should have trusted public transit instead of Canada Post)

16  Ginormous Harry Potter Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: April 22, 2011 12:51:53 PM
Okay, it isn't very impressive skills-wise, but this counts as the largest thing I have ever knitted. Plus, though I knit quite a bit, I have never posted on this board before. At xmas my niece asked me for a Harry Potter Scarf, for the final movie coming out this summer & she wanted Gryffindor, so here it is.

It's 11 feet long, plus tassels. I have enough yarn left to knit quite a few accessories though I think in July she'll be sufficiently warm in this.

Since I am a little busy to do something specific at the moment, I have raided my stash of unframed needlework & come up with these.

St Georges Day


The Fab 2

The penny is included for size reference, but these would all make decent small notebook covers or framed pieces. I will now rush over to post them on Crafts for Japan. I also have larger pieces. If anyone would be interested in a large art deco pastel sampler, let me know.

Well, it's not very Japanese, but here is my dragon tin.

Polymer clay on, well, tin.
The bright blue wasn't very well thought out, but I was extremely happy with the dragon.
It looks huge there, but it's about the size of a CD and a couple of inches high.

19  Anyone up for a Literary Altoids Tin swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by aethelberga on: March 22, 2011 07:15:36 PM

I haven't seen an Altoid tin swap in a while & I just wondered if anyone was up for a book related one?

20  It was clay and now it's metal! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: February 01, 2011 05:47:16 PM
A couple of weeks ago I took a class in PMC. I was able to torch fire one piece and bring it home with me, but left the rest there to be kiln fired & mailed to me. Today I finally received them (and after all the mean things I said about Canada Post). They came out pretty well.

They could be a teeny bit shinier. I guess I will have to burnish a little harder. The most amazing part was watching the one I torch fired go from clay to metal. I would love to do some more, but silver is a little pricey to experiment with and this studio will not fire copper or bronze, so i will have to see what I can do.
Thanks for looking.
