1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: I'm such a nutjob! on: July 12, 2010 07:11:22 PM
How did you attach them to the headband?  I have had a "Lucy, Daughter of the Devil" costume in mind for a long time, the sticking point was the horns, and you are spot on.
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Feta Cheese Making Question on: June 12, 2010 09:59:50 AM
Hey all, I keep dairy goats and decided to make a batch of feta cheese this weekend.  The recipe I have calls for a tablespoon of yogurt, which I thought I had.  I was mistaken, we are out, but we do have sour cream.  Can I sub the sour cream for yogurt, or are the bacteria too different?  Any general tips for cheese making are greatly appreciated!

The original beads.

I was planning on making base beads with my large collection of waste clay and then overlaying a heavy layer of clay over those.  I'm not deeply committed to any certain size yet, but they do need to be large.  I haven't decided on whether I'm doing the carving before or after I've cured the final layer, but as for cutting the patterns I will probably use my v-gouge lino carving tools.  I plan on doing grids and stripes, nothing majorly intricate.

Rory's almost 2, so she's not still into the major mouthing/chewing/sucking, but I'm sure that they would go into her mouth at some point.  I am planning on doing them with polymer clay, they're BIG beads, at least two inches per side and I'll probably make them two or three inches long.  I was concerned about sealing them because from my understanding polymer clay contains phthalates, but I have been reading that the new batches have a much lower concentration so they're not really considered toxic anymore?
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Non-Toxic Waterproof Sealant? on: February 25, 2010 04:50:02 PM
Hey all.  My best friend''s middle daughter Riley is cognitively and physically delayed, and her ot/pt recommended that she get a set of learning beads for at home.  They are basically BIG cube shaped beads that have patterns carved into them. The problem is that they run about $70 for a set of TWELVE.  She asked if I could make some for her, and I readily agreed.  Riley doesn''t put stuff in her mouth anymore, but her baby sister Rory does.  Any ideas on something that''s both non-toxic AND drool proof?  Thanks for reading!
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Thing with hinges to make multi-colored lino prints? on: February 23, 2010 05:16:27 PM
Hey, thanks for reading!  I have recently gotten into carving my own lino stamps and it is SO fun!  I have just done some simple smaller stamps, and would like to start exploring multi-colored lino printmaking.  What are those things called that have the hinges, that you put the block on to make sure that the ink broadcasts correctly without getting shifted?  I asked my boyfriend to help me make one and he told me to see if I could find plans for one, but I don't know what they're called.  Thanks if you can help me out!  I would also deeply appreciate any other tips or advice you might have for me, I'm open to learning everything I can!

I did end up greasing it and just wiggling the hell out of it while I pulled as hard as I could, it eventually popped out.  I bought a cheap gun to try it out to see if I like it, and I am happy with the results I get, but that thing is hard on the hands!  I am planning on upgrading.
