Ooh my that's lovely, thanks for the tutorial! I may have to try making something like this for my wedding. Where do you buy those jewelled spacers from?

Whether you want the natural bark or not is really up to you, personally I think sealer of any kind isn't necessary unless you want the branches to be shiny. You might want to check out this site:


They show natural as well as sandblasted branches here, so you can see which you prefer. Personally, I just think ripping the bark off the sticks is entertaining, if time consuming, but there is definetly something to be said for bark.

You should consider what type of trees and shrubs grow in your area, and in what season your wedding will be. If your having a spring wedding, I would suggest harvesting branches now, before the leaves begin growing again. It's much easier to snap off old, dead twigs that way.

You don't necessarily have to be near actual sand. Pet stores often carry all kinds of interesting sand. You can usually get more for less that way than buying craft sand, too.

It's hard to tell from the photo, but I'm using black sparkly sand that never made it into our lizard tank in similiar vials for my wedding:

Okay, so originally this was going to be a chopstick sketchbook, but my chopsticks wouldn't stay in place because I was doing it wrong. Also, I had crappy string. So I used wire. It's my first real attempt at binding, and the inside wire bit is not very pretty looking, but it worked out well.

Here's the image link, I'm too lazy to split the file up and upload it on the site hosting right now:

I also have another one that I took a small picture frame, and an image of a merfolk from the front of a Magic: The Gathering booster pack that I put on a black (premade) sketchbook for him too, but I forgot to snap pictures of it before I gave it to him. If he brings it over later I'll post a photo of that too.

Hmm, that might work.. I wonder if I could make a shrinky-dink fairy that small? Probably not.. it might wind up burning or something.

Alright folks, I've got something of a dilemma here. As you can see from my wedding thread here:


I have some very, very small wedding favor bottles. Now, as gifts for the bridal party we want to put highlighter fluid into the bottles to make glowing dungeons and dragons style cure light potion 'break in case of emergency' shadow boxes, but my maid of honor doesn't like d&d as much as the rest of us do.

However, she loves Link and the Legend of Zelda games. So, I want to make fairy bottles. However the bottles are very small and I'm at a loss for what to make the tiny fairies out of. I considered sculpey, but doing it that small would be difficult and wings out of liquid sculpey that small would probably burn if I bake them.

Anyone got any ideas?

Oooh, that's beautiful. Are those liquid sculpey wings, or something else?
