231  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: stretched earlobe jewelry on: January 12, 2008 10:40:28 AM
thanks! the clay isn't the problem, although wear in freshly stretched lobes isn't recommended since it's porous, what I didn't want in contact with my skin is the golden paint I put on the clay, I didn't know if I could react from it but I didn't want to take any chances Wink but polymer clay alone is nice to ears^^

I've got an earlobe at 00g and my other one is at 4g. you should go for it and stretch those ears a little, there's something nice about being able to see through your ear:p

this was my first time using polymer clay, so it's pretty basic. It's hard to see, but the snake is golden. it was made for a circus/cabaret styled show in which I played the ring master. the tape around the snake is to prevent the paint from touching my earlobe (it can't be good!).

the crescent was made for casual wear and is surprisingly comfortable!

my character. it's hard to see but the shiny thing in my ear is the snake!

234  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Clown costume / tailcoat on: January 12, 2008 09:58:02 AM

I presently work by contract as a clown in my area, and use & wear has brought the need for me to get a new costume. I can't afford a custom made clown costume, and I haven't found any for sale that met my requirements, so I decided to make it myself. I progressed pretty well, but now, to fit my vision of my costume, I need a tailcoat. I was wondering if any of you had a pattern or instructions to make a one? I know i'm probably asking a lot, but any help would be greatly appreciated!
235  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: Painted Converse -- these are a few of HIS favorite things -- Img Rotund on: January 12, 2008 09:28:36 AM
awesome shoes!! they make my old black chucks look pretty bland Cheesy

next time, try diluting your acrylics in a little water, or, even better, in textile medium. This medium takes time to dry, and you have to iron it once it is, but when this is done, the paint clings on the canvas for good, becomes totally water proof and remains flexible, so the paintjob will last a loooooong looooong time. I also suggested water because by diluting the paint, it makes it a lot easier to apply, you can take my word for it!

239  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Zombie Head (warning: gruesome!) on: January 11, 2008 11:38:18 PM
Hello, there!

for my first topic, I thought i'd share pictures of a zombie head I did for halloween a few months ago. I made a duplicate of a plastic skull as a base for the head, added old dentures (yeah, gross, I know Wink ) and covered it with a mix of cotton and liquid latex. I then glued down hair from a cheap wig and painted the whole thing with acrylic washes.

at the beginning

added some flesh

finished with the cotton and latex flesh

all done!

it was a pretty simple craft to do, the hardest was waiting for the latex to dry :p if you'd like more information just pm me!
