I'm thinking of taking one of the "weekend glass blowing" workshops because it sounds like an interesting thing to try. It's not cheap, though. Has anyone taken one of these courses before?  Is it worthwhile?

Yeah, I pop 'em too.

Is there anything to make them appear less red?

I have heard that you can use Visine or other eye drop remedies on zits -- they can "get the red out" of your skin as well as your eyes. But I have not tried it myself so I make no guarantees.

That's gorgeous! I think having around the ceiling fan works nicely -- sort of a chandelier effect.

Hello! I'm new to the boards and am quite happy to find other folks who appreciate oddball craft projects.

Lately I've been playing around with painting the various wooden things one can get in a commercial craft store and putting my own weird sense of humor into the projects. I thought I'd share as a way to introduce myself.  Cheesy

First up, the Invaded Birdhouse! This poor birdie came home and found that a very unpleasant creature had taken over.

The "tentacles" came from a glow-in-the-dark vinyl jellyfish toy which I cut up into pieces and glued into place. Boy was that stuff a pain to work with.   Tongue  The bird came from a craft store, but I put googly eyes on him so he'd look startled. The birdhouse also came from the craft store; I cracked a chunk out of the back so that the tentacles could reach out. It's also smeared with glow-in-the-dark paint.

I recently finished the Goth Birdhouse as well -- perfect for that mournful vampire sparrow:

The birdhouse is painted in black and red, with a green base and a silver ankh above the entrance. The tombstone is also a wood craft piece, with a red ribbon rose glued on top; it says "Memento Mori". The candlestick is from the dollhouse section of the craft store. The stained-glass window was intended for use in scrapbooking; I painted it white on the back so the colors would stand out more.

I'm currently working on a rocket ship birdhouse too. The main ship is done, but I have to finish the bird's shuttlecraft.  Grin
