3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Dollar tree bath decor on: May 18, 2019 08:37:22 PM
We recently bought a 1978 doublewide mobile home.  It's on a really beautiful property, which makes up for the funkiness of the house.

The wall between the master bedroom and bath has these odd niches.  I suspect there used to be super classy amber colored pebble plastic panels separating the rooms.  (Which would match the window on the front door.)

I got kind of excited when I saw them, thinking what I would do with them. 
First thing involved a floral tablecloth from the dollar store, but it was much too garish.  I flipped the panels over to reveal the more softly colored back.  Still pretty bright, but better than the original white on white on white.

The other day, I found a prettier tablecloth and installed it today...

And both versions got matching trash can makeovers

I think you need to liven up your story about the source of the wooden hand.  Something about a sailor known as Lefty, perhaps...

Lovely work!

What a cool project!
 Makes me wish I wanted charcoal sticks for something.

Turns out Nick Neddo, the book's author, has a number of YouTube videos...

Art shows the artist's point of view, reveals something about how the artist views the world.
In a way, all art is self portraiture, and all authorship is auto biographical.

Art is one-of-a-kind.  Multiples are craft or artisnal, even if the first one is art.

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Model magic Air dry clay? on: April 28, 2019 12:52:03 AM
I had some Model Magic 15 years ago or so and really liked it.  It dried durable and waterproof, and felt like Styrofoam.  It stayed pliable in its original packaging even after opening.

Did they change it?  One website says it can be reused by adding water.   Another says it dries out even before the package is opened. Crayola's website doesn't say either.

Has anyone used it recently?

Or can you recommend an air dry clay that dries durable and fairly waterproof?

The problem with paint on fabric isn't that it will come off; just the opposite, it will soak in--and not get a smooth, shiny finish.

Sealing your lovely mummy with white glue or mod podge will help.  Plan on at least two coats.

I would use a spray paint that is formulated for plastic to go over the glue.  My favorite is Rustoleum 2X.  I've never tried their metallics, so don't know how they'll come out.
