1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Safe glaze without a kiln on: May 11, 2010 03:44:28 PM
Okay, so I made a flute out of an air-drying clay (darwi, should that be important), because all the other clay available to me was of such poor quality it literally dried in my hands. Also, the other clay needed firing, and I have no access to a kiln. The flute worked out fairly well, but needed a bit of sanding, which caused the dry clay to start 'chalking' up my hands each time I hold it. Since I'm probably going to actually use it to play, I was wondering if there was a way to add a finish layer that is mostly non-toxic.

Any thoughts?
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Favorite "Weird" Food? on: February 07, 2008 05:12:02 AM
My favorite weird concotions (Aka. Exam food) are...

1. Instant tomato soup with bread and white chocolate as a side dish
2. Microwaved pita with crushed, filled chocolate bars
3. A sandwich with ham, mayonaise, ketchup and paprika flavored fair-trade yuca chips (though pringles or something like that work, too)

I've got an idea for this... Providing it doesn't die on me. Shocked

This is the kind of thing I could make for my brother's birthday (Ack! That's 28th!). I even know where to get a duck (with keyring and all), but then I'd have to be able to explain the other... 19 of them. And find a USB stick. Undecided

I'm just gonna ask if you used microwave cake (as in the kind that takes zeven or eight minutes to cook) or just classic oven cake?

Thanks. Now I just have to steal my bro's rainbow LED kit after the exams. Wink
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Lit clothing... Possible? on: November 30, 2007 11:42:06 AM
Okay, so I have been banned from all things crafty for the following threee weeks or so, which means I suddenly get these weird, craft-related questions popping up.
Putting a whole series of LEDs (I blame it on my brother's LED-studded pc keyboard with glowy LED-powered scroller bit on top of the matching mouse) into an article of clothing (jeans, T-shirt, hoodie,...) would probably cause things like electrocution, burns, death and freakish explanations in ambulances. But then news spreads and you learn that a town uses glass fibre for its lit christmas decorations to save energy (and probably loads of money, too). You know, like with the portable UFO lights or some kinds of christmas tree lights, lighting one street-width of decoration with one bulb. Questions at the nearest EA-ICT semi-specialist tells me that
Quote from: my bro
"Glass fibre won't get any hotter under a lamp than your glasses would."

So my question is: is it possible to put glass fibre in anything made out of cloth and then light it up with the use of a low-heat generating light source (like a blue LED similar to the type used for lit juggling balls) in a (hidden) pocket, linked to the glass fibre?

These are meanly deceptive. I saw a thumbnail and was like 'CAKE!!!'. Turns out it's cotton, which is less chomp-able.  Sad
I give them all a 12.8 out of 10 for their incredible ability to look real and yum.

I'm gonna have to join the 'OMG vise grip?' army you're creating here. I was like 'tool in foam with plastic casing', 'heated tool thingy', 'tool crotcheted into pot holder--how does she fold it?', 'oooh, like that'. Won't the transfer get all melty when handling something really hot, though?

Looks like Santa's trying something a little more aerodynamic this year. Wink
Great idea!
