Gooooooooo, Graffiti!

This challenge would be so ridiculously fun because graffiti runs the gamut of styles.  I'm crossing my fingers...

I really like the mood of your metal work. 

Anodizing is my Favorite!!!  A close second is Alcohol Inks on solder/silver, etc. 

I want to take a class just for the instruction on the little cup.  It seems simple enough in theory, more of a feat of patience than anything.
 Anyways, Kudos!

784, Thanks! Yeah I figure that's from whence it hailed, the hairy knuckle thing was a tired attempt at humor.

Hippie, I wish I could say that stitch is my design, but a dear friend taught me the basic idea.  Yes it's resin, and the cab is held in by sheer tension.

Your harness is super fab-o!

I started making these for friends a coupla years ago, and the only thing that I changed from my original design (which was similar to yours) was that I made the loops (for the o-ring) snap open and closed with a heavy duty snap.  Much easier to insert *ahem* larger tools into...hehehehehhhee.

Also, then you can take out the steel ring and wash it! well, yours is suede so perhaps not...

kudos to your ingenuity!  this rocks.

Hi, I'm in Asheville!  I've been here about 2.5 years and am full on in love with it.  I'm a crafter/artist of the ADD genus.  I'll try anything multiple times just to get the gist of it, and continue working with the materials that spark me.

The staples of my life are resin, fabric, yarn, glass, metal, wax...

Love crafting in groups and even have a decent studio that can accommodate several people at once.  Long live collaboration!

I full on love jasper, and that silver leaf specimen is just stunning.

I really like your setting.  The simplicity caught my eye and kept it. 
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Using fabric with resin on: November 23, 2008 08:16:35 PM
Hi.   I work regularly with fabric in resin.  I embed the fabric.  At first I poured close to the depth I wanted and then embedded it...(tend to the air bubbles!) but now I pour a thin layer first, let it cure- mostly, and then pour more and embed.  then you can do a third layer (or more!) of color.  Or I mod podge the fabric so it maintains its shape and then 'drizzle' resin over it.. makes thinner pieces and you use alot less resin.

I am not a huge fan of adhesives.  It is my opinion that all adhesives get weaker with age and wear.  I have not found a glue that works well long term on things that get pressure exerted on them.  (nope, not even the much exalted e6000.)  I embed my findings now too.

Hope this helps.
