1  Casting a Glass Ring in Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions by magpie0816 on: June 01, 2008 06:05:36 PM
Hello all. I found an old resin ring of mine that I would like to attempt to make a mold of in order to cast some glass rings out of some recycled glass. I have a glass kiln and fuse quite a bit, however, I have never done any casting...and have never made a mold of an item expressly for that purpose.

Can anyone help me figure out the best way to do this and the proper materials to use? My kiln only goes up to 1800 degress - so firing a ceramic mold myself wouldn't be an option - I don't think.

If anyone has kiln casting experience...I would greatly appreciate the advice. Thanks!

5  "Ernest" Volvo 245 Wagon Shirt w/ Stencil in Stenciling: Completed Projects by magpie0816 on: February 03, 2008 01:32:29 PM
A very good friend of mine has an obsession with his Volvo 245. Lovingly, he has named him "Ernest"...I thought a photo of his would make a great stencil -so, here you go.


The bleach bled a bit...but I really like the effect on my old brown shirt.

Here is a light stencil done with bleach. It was my first and I was afraid to use too much bleach but I think it turned out cute despite the lightness.

Here is the kiddo...just up from a nap - hence the dazed look and crazy hair Smiley

8  Whoooo, hooo - Owl Stencil for toddler shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by magpie0816 on: January 13, 2008 01:08:07 PM
I wanted to share this stencil I made for my son's very loved (ie stained) shirt. It was made with freezer paper and silver paint using an owl pattern here http://www.ottobredesign.com/fi/kaavat/pdf/APPLIQUE.pdf

Very easy to do...I am strangely very proud of it Smiley

9  Toddler Gnomey Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by magpie0816 on: December 31, 2007 06:51:07 AM
This pattern came from over at Ravelry and I think it turned out very sweet Smiley Super quick and very warm. It was done on 10 circs and 7 dpn for the top. The yarn was Licorice from Jo-Ann's - and for a novelty yar - knit very nicely. It is 100% wool and fits my son (18 mo) perfectly as it was written. I knit this up in about 2.5 from start to finish.

Here is the free pattern from Hello Yarns - http://www.helloyarn.com/gnomey.htm

10  Wrap style boy's shirts in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by magpie0816 on: December 20, 2007 07:13:18 PM
Hey guys...here are a few of many boy's shirts that I have made recently using a modified plain ol' shirt pattern for my DS. The yellow material yellow was from a shirt of my DH that he had set aside to go to goodwill (silly man - no of that crap makes it there - I usually swipe it all) Smiley The blue is a nice warm fleece jacket and the grey is terry cloth shirt with a fleece collar (there are matching pants for the terry cloth shirt in the dryer ...so no pic).

They are all so comfortable (well, I *think* they are, he hasn't complained)...and have already been washed many times.

Thanks for looking...
