Hey, it's been awhile... how are you? I'm fine, thanks for asking.

My classmate had an awesome necklace that she purchased from H&M a few years ago. I couldn't stop looking at it so I went out to recreate it. I used gift cards to purchase a butt-ton of beads and am still constructing necklaces from them.

and here's another one... I wanted one symmetrical!

Thanks for lookin'!

so far so good. Just be gentle! but the crystal clear really helps to protect it, the water beads off the back when I wash it. They have not chipped yet!
7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Lichenstein Family Portrait on: September 03, 2009 06:42:31 PM
actually... I didn't base it off a single family portrait... the composition was entirely on the spot and I tried to capture the essence of each family member.   

I used acrylics straight from the bottle...  i used pencil and gently drew dots along a ruler to make it easier to paint red dots on the face (like a comic strip)

Other than that, just took along time and patience!

8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: deodorants give me a rash! on: September 03, 2009 02:39:39 PM
thanks everyone, you are all so helpful!  Luckily, I don't sweat a lot... so I have not had to use antiperspirant but I will definitely check out the unscented gel.  I don't think reapplying cornstarch all day will make me too happy. haha

do you think it would just warp again over time? These canvases are so big, I don't even know how to soak them!

thanks tho  I might as well give it a try!

sorry I haven't been on in awhile, computer died. Anywho... the plates are SUPER easy. I found the deep sea creatures on  this site:


***It is only food safe if you do everything to the BACK of the plate***

1) printed pics out.

2) modpodged them onto the back of the plate (making sure it lays flat)

3) modpodged the back of the image (to help prevent paint from being absorbed)

4) cleaned the excess modpodge off the plate

5) let it dry  i dunno.... an hour?

6) used spray adhesive to attach fishnet stocking to back of glass plate (you can use any lacy, fishnetty material)

7) sprayed 2 even coats of spray paint (your choice), let it dry 2 hours

Cool pulled fishnet off, sprayed 2 coats of different color spray paint over it, wait a few hours... (no rush, it's worth it)

9) sprayed 5-6 coats of Acrylic Crystal Clear (available at Lowes, A.C. Moore, etc) to the back to protect it.

***Do not microwave, do not put in washer, do not eat off the back of the plate***

or use em for decoration!!!

YAY  i've been making them for friends and family. Simple and fun...
