1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Cute Polymer Stuff I made~ on: October 13, 2008 12:01:42 AM
Hi everyone!! Just wanted to share some of the things I recently made with polymer clay.  Please tell me what you think!   Smiley

These are teddy bear and panda bear earrings!  The pair on top is mine :p

I just wanted to make something different this time! What do you think?  Should I add some arms and legs?

I think I should make more of these!  It's really fun picking out the colors~

Gingerbread man and lollipop!  I looove making lollipops~ I should try some special colors next time.  This one's really girly.

2  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / CANADA / Canadian Seller Shipping Fees on: October 08, 2008 01:38:26 AM
I sell on Etsy and my shipping fee has always been:

Canada = 2.5
US = 2.5
International = 4

But then recently I 'accidently' made this polymer cupcake that's over 20mm!
When I looked at the shipping guide, it said those are now 'Small Packets' instead of 'Light Packet/Letter', which I normally ship with.  And the cost is..

Canada = 11
US = 5.05
International = 5.65-20

What am I supposed to do?  How are we supposed to sell/ship anything?
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My first origami earrings! - Neon Stars - on: September 26, 2008 06:04:04 AM
I've been making origami's all my life and I've finally decided to try making them wearable!  Tongue  What do you guys think?  Does it look weird?

Here's how I made them:
I covered them with a water resistant sealer so they're more durable.  Then I poked a hole in the from top to bottom so they turn into beads.  Then I put a wire through and bend it into a hook-like shape.
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a good Pasta Machine for polymer clay on: September 24, 2008 01:32:02 AM
Hi everyone, I'm looking for a pasta machine and I noticed that many people found problems with some machines.  I noticed that Michaels sells two different ones (AMACO and Makins).  First one is 34cdn~, second is 75cdn~.  What's the difference?  What machines do you guys use?
5  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / CANADA / Where to buy Resin Dye and Mold? on: September 13, 2008 01:54:12 AM
I'm trying to find resin dye and molds, but all the online stores that carries them are from the U.S and resin and resin dyes are considers hazardous chemical, it can't be exported.  I live in Vancouver and I already checked Loomis and Michaels.  Michaels only carry 1 kind of resin mold but I don't want that one.  Anyone know where else I can get dyes and molds?  Do they have it in Michaels in the U.S?   Huh

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / RESIN: My first attempt on: September 04, 2008 10:45:51 PM
Ahh! My first post! 
Ok so I finally decided to make something out of the resins I bought a while back.
Here is what happened. I tried saving money by using some random plastic as the mold  Sad
So now everything is stuck...BUT..I cut them out and since the mold is clear plastic, they turned out ok!
They're now actually more shiny than it would've been.  I don't get why the castin craft molds would work and not my mold! Even plastic paint palette works too right?  Anyways here are some pictures!
(I used Easy Cast epoxy resin and only mixed in 1 plastic cup)

These are all cut out form their molds.
My sprinkles looks funny. Maybe cuz I didn't coat them  Tongue

This is the plastic mold I used. You can see I cut some out lol.

Ones with sprinkles.

With stickers

You guessed it. I used a DHC soap container!  Now if only I can get rid of those words.

And now I have to figure out how to drill holes in them. I only have big drills at home..sigh.
I really should get some real molds, but there's only one kind and it's around $7 in Michaels in Canada.
Guess I have to order them online.  Sorry for the long post!
