22  Are you seriously going to wear THOSE outside!? in Shoes: Completed Projects by Altered Angel on: January 02, 2007 01:30:47 PM
Well YES I was thinking of it!

I had these leather mules, which actually I liked as they were anyway, they are VERY comfortable!

Anyway, my daughter assured me I look like a hippy and I'm "embarrassing" and didn't I think they were a little "Granny like"  Shocked Undecided

So I painted them, in a vain attempt to make them acceptable. 

I LOVE these shoes!!!  Kiss

Still she (daughter) looked at them FINISHED and said "You're not seriously going to wear them outside are you?"

Well YES  Tongue I seriously AM!  Wink

23  Re: (Now with tutorial!) - SODA/BEER cans - Almost Unlimited Uses! Charms (5 Pics) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Altered Angel on: September 02, 2006 01:34:25 PM
WOW that was a good close up shot!!  Shocked

OK I've taken about 20 pics LOL, and I just can NOT get one that good!  So I hope this will do as I have a blinding headache tonight and I've just given up trying to get one any better  Sad

Here's what I think (although it's all guessing really)

Firstly the tin doesn't cover the foam completely.  Looks like I just got good photos in the beginning, but it doesn't really matter does it? (as long as it's not sharp)

Yours looks bent?  Did you do that to take the photo or is it just the way the light is hitting it?  Anyway it shouldn't be bent (just in case they are coming out like that)  Huh

Your foam does look a lot thicker than mine, so maybe that would make a difference too?  Like I said, I bought one even thinnner and it was awful.

And other things I thought of:  ALWAYS cut with the tin facing the die, (tin side up NOT foam side up) this creates a better cut.

'Kiss' the tin first with the die - i.e. don't cut right through the first time.  (I don't honestly know if that helps or not, it's just the way I've always done it)

And - Some people put theirs through a pasta maker first (Huh) I don't have one, so I've never done that, but it couldn't hurt to try it out if you do?

I'm adding an out of focus photo (sorry about that) so you may be able to see that you can see my foam also, but It's also thinner than yours I think.

OH - And  Cheesy Always try as much as possible to match the foam with the tin (colour wise) and then it's not so obvious.  Having said that, we have some green 7-UP cans here and I have been putting them on green foam but personally I've decided they look better on black?

It's part of the make up of the pendant anyway - so you are going to see it sometimes.  I don't think it spoils it at all.  And now I'm selling these as well and I haven't had ANY complaints YET  Wink

Hope this helps

24  Re: Soda Can BAT! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Altered Angel on: August 22, 2006 11:05:07 AM
I think he's rather super (can you tell I'm English too?) and I love recycled stuff! Especially when it looks so professional. I wonder how easy it would be to make smaller ones - he's much bigger than I would wear personally. I guess you might lose the image on the can then though.

I made some ear-rings which are much smaller (if you use the right part of the can it's normally ok) however it's the cutter that matters!  Wink  It's only because of the cutter that they come out so professional (sadly that has nothing to do with me LOL) and the only other bats that I can buy are REALLY little and don't work so well with this technique. (I tried it already with another shape)  Undecided

The ear rings came out OK but they were the left over bits from my soda can butterfly (big shape again) so that's probably why.

OK sorry folks  Embarrassed  I don't intend to bore you forever with my soda can jewelry  Undecided  BUT I have a new shape!  And I'm so proud of these cuties!

29  Hot Glue Necklace - HONEST opinions wanted? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Altered Angel on: July 09, 2006 10:04:12 AM
I haven't decided what I think of this necklace yet  Huh

Well it WILL be a necklace (I have yet to put a chain on it) although if I had wanted I could have made it a pin as well.

Anyway the main part of the necklace is made from foam core board and hot glue!  The rest is obviously scrap metal and beads.

What do you think?

30  QUICK MAKE - Keyring! (Image included) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Altered Angel on: July 08, 2006 02:28:07 PM
OK here's how it happened:

Took the kids to Cadbury World today and it was a longgggggg day.  Daughter (6) bought a keyring with her name on it (I could've bought one of those at home!!!!  Roll Eyes ) Anyway we get ALL the way home (LIKE MILES!!!!!) and she's left it there! And now there's tears.

SO.............. I say "Awww don't cry I'll make you one" (S.U.C.K.E.R.!)  I'm tired, fed up and I DON'T really want to be making keyrings!

But hey here it is!  And the best part was it was SO fast and EASY!  Wink
