11  Ladybug ring! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by marmalade_skies on: September 30, 2012 08:46:57 AM
I found an old mold of creepy crawlies that my nephew got and forgot about a long time ago. It wasn't made for polymer clay so I had to be extra careful about using some sort of mold release. I painted it with four coats of acrylic paint after I baked it then used a red, sparkly nail polish to add more interest. I mounted it with E6000 to an adjustable ring band. I really love the way it turned out.

13  Measuring Tape Cuff Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by marmalade_skies on: September 11, 2012 11:58:05 PM
I found an old measuring tape in a barn a few years ago and just recently figured out something to make out of it.

14  Resin Bug Jewelry in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by marmalade_skies on: September 11, 2012 11:45:08 PM
I have to admit, working with resin is one of my favorite things to do. And my most favorite thing to cast in resin is beautiful bugs. Don't worry, they are dead when I cast them. Also, I never, ever kill a bug for this. Mostly, I find them dead but recently, I have become the lady that little kids save dead bugs for. I'm okay with that. I love preserving the beauty of these small creatures.

These first two are darkling beetles that a friend of mine gave me.

This one is a beetle that I've never seen before, but my young cousin found it for me and I love it.

15  Freddy and Jason BFF!! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by marmalade_skies on: September 11, 2012 03:07:03 PM
This was a custom set I made for an old high school friend. Made with resin, printed out pictures (the art is not my original design), and stickers (the letters and the hearts). I love these and my friend does too Smiley

17  White Flag Warrior T-Shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by marmalade_skies on: December 19, 2011 01:09:59 AM
My seven year old nephew has the most amazing taste in music that I've ever seen. One of his favorite songs is White Flag Warrior by Flobots. I like the song and what it means. So, for Christmas, I made him this shirt.

I used the Cricut Cuttables Adhesive-Backed 3 mil Vinyl to make the stencils, cut out by hand. This stuff sticks to the shirt surprisingly very well. I was afraid it wouldn't at first because it doesn't feel very sticky.

I'm excited about this shirt though.

18  O-H-...? in Crochet: Completed Projects by marmalade_skies on: October 02, 2011 02:28:30 PM
My friend asked me to make him an Ohio State hat for him to wear while he's delivering pizzas during Ohio State games. I made 6 hats before I settled on a design for his. This isn't that hat. But this hat was born from the idea of that hat. I was brainstorming with my sister for a design that was manly enough for him but still was Scarlet and Gray. Just as a joke, I said, "Hey, I'll make one of those mohawk hats to look like an Ohio State helmet!" We got a good laugh out of it but the more I thought about it, the more I thought I could pull it off.

Anyway, here it is:

I don't know anyone that would actually wear this hat...

19  I can't stop smiling because of this Squid in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by marmalade_skies on: June 06, 2011 02:21:55 PM
I came across this a couple hours ago: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=380268.0

And instead of studying for finals, I made one!

I did the eyes differently than the pattern said. I started them with black yarn and changed to orange after the first round. Oh and for some reason, I only ended up with 7 short tentacles but I think that makes him more special. I'm still trying to decide on a name though.

I love it <3

20  Bee (wasp?) cast in resin in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by marmalade_skies on: May 12, 2011 06:22:25 PM
I love this necklace, with a passion. My sister gave me this dead bee. Yeah, my family knows to give me the dead insects. I don't kill bugs for this, I usually find them dead.

Anyway, here it is:

I'm sorry the picture isn't very good. I used my webcam.

So, I cast the bee in the resin then wrapped the wire around it. I get a lot of compliments on it.
