11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / I'm a little Tea Pot... on: August 06, 2009 02:11:14 PM
And here me shout.

Anyway, I bought this CUTE little tea leaves strainer, in the shape of a tea pot and I am thinking of making it into a necklace or something.

But know nothing of how to go about it?
The bottom is not attached to the base, the same with the little lid.
So I am not sure how to join those without burning something and possibly melting something and it go horribly wrong.

Any tips, ideas or comments in general would be fantastic!
Thanks a bunch!
12  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Sorry, i'm such a geek. on: August 03, 2009 06:53:48 AM
I bought myself some watercolour paper as I haven't done it in

I'm doing the Star Trek swap at the moment, so I have it on the brain.

Sorry I do apologise in advance for the epic suckage of my little painting.
It's actually bigger than this but the other parts ended up so hideously badly I didnt want to put it up.
So I cropped it.
This is the bit I kind of like.

I like Spock in hats. and the retro quilted red coats from the TOS based films.

It's also inspired by this little bit of Fanfic <a href="http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5071703/1/Home">Home</a>. I dont normally read this kind of stuff but I got sucked in by a friend and loved it ever since.

Was up london at a photography workshop which SUCKED
We wandered off and started taking photos of anything ourselves and I decided to stalk 2 of my bezzie mates and I think they were about to kill me by the end of the day.
However, I took some fab phots of them dark room b/w style, I think.
I love them anyway but I hope you like them too Cheesy

My girlies chatting. Southbank.

POW! Sunglasses!


I love her smile. Bare jealous lol!

I think they were amazed at the horrific clothing/fashio we were made to photograph in the suckass workshop.

Anyway C+C always welcome!

I was in the British Museum a while back and saw the utter fabulousness of the Statueophilia exhibition.

My favourite is the huge fibreglass, hair and immense skill of Ron Mueck's 'Face III'.

Hope you like my black and white (tradish dark room style albeit scanned in the computer) photos of it.

And a Close up.

16  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / What to do with latex? on: June 03, 2009 06:09:46 AM
Well...I had a project in which we had to explore different forms and fittings with unusual objects and make them into a product of some sort.
I did Technical Effects for a bit so I was lumped with a GINORMOUS sheet of latex which smelt SO BAD!
Like cheesy feet and rotten fish...bleurgh

Anyway, I've kept it as a halloween accessory because everyone was freaked out by it when I walked around in it...

SO, here is the delightful hat (as modelled by my friend)

And just as a little extra I had a massive load left so when I started on the next project of making something out of things your find. I had an umbrella and some inflatable jacket thing...sooo

Okay...you need a lot of imagination to make it look like an cuttlefish/octopus type thing but still
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / One Man Shirt = Many recons on: June 03, 2009 05:58:13 AM
I've just finished my Art foundation course and decided to put up a load of some of the stuff I got up to.
We had to deconstruct a shirt and reconstruct it into loads and loads of ideas and these are just a few I came up with.

Hope you like them, because I thoroughly enjoyed making them  Smiley

The Man Shirt before it got gobbled up:

Ok...this was my first try so dont laugh at its poo-ness:

OOOOh, I just love ruffles!


And some roses toooooooo:

Thanks for looking!
18  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Gory Photos on: June 03, 2009 05:49:41 AM
I know I have been posting a lot today but I finally found my memory stick with all my old work on.
I did these photos for my Art A-level which I got poo grades for unfortunately but I think the whole thing went well despite this hiccup.

The were done all just using facepaint and a splattering of vaseline to stop the drips running away and to make it look yucky...I swear my arm and hands were dyed red by the end of it all as well as the school nurse thinking I'd actually been beating up people as she found me with one of my 'victims' in the corridor and scared to living daylights out of her...
haa ha ha good times.

Obviously noone was harmed in the making of these...unless you count being a funny shade of red for a week harm. Grin

Sooooo...here they are:

My friend with a gunshot/stab wound:

My chummly with a slashed neck:

And another with her face smashed in a little:

19  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Brain Fart on: June 03, 2009 05:40:55 AM
I did this for my Final Piece in my A-Level year (and got a D  Cry )
I was really having a lot of brain fog and originally tried painting the whole thing but that turned out like a massive piece of crud.
So I did the whole thing in pencil which I think looks quite nice actually.
I am really proud of the skull...i spent hours on it (though it may not look like it)

And the whole Kit and Kaboodle

C+C Welcome!
20  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / A rose by any other name... on: June 03, 2009 05:35:54 AM
I did this a few years back (wow, it really has been a long time) for my Art A-Level (which I did dismally at for some reason  Cry)

Anyway it is basically a reproduction of a Mark Ryden painting called Rose which I absolutely love and I think it turned out ok, especially as I did it when I trapped a nerve in my wrist making it hurt and twitch like a b*tch. Anyhoo, no matter what my grades say, I think it didnt come out too shabby.

C+C welcome!

The whole thing

A close up.
