31  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: Mosaic tree table of happiness...*IMAGE HEAVY( fairly wordy as well)* on: October 04, 2009 06:12:04 PM
Cover the mosaic in resin! ah! brilliant! I have this mirror with a mosaic boarder/frame that I made in high school that tends to give me little paper-cut-like injuries if I happen to run my fingers across the mosaic parts, even though it's completely grouted. It's the varying thicknesses of the glass chunks that get me. That's such a good solution for that.  Cheesy

Thanks! I just might do it myself if I can get around to it.

uurgg... right where he belongs!  Cheesy

That is *seriously* awesome. I'd definitely wear something (anything) with a black widow safely encased in resin. The twisted kid in me loves that you can still feel his little spidery bits through the resin, while the arachnophobe in me wants to shove said kid out of danger and make flustered-nonsense noises while shaking off the imaginary spiders currently crawling through her sleeves.

most excellent, I appreciate this.

You could always do both. Adhere the fabric and then paint it with the acrylic. Or if you rough up the surface with some sand paper I think that would probably help to prevent the acrylic from peeling off if you don't feel like doing both.

Personally I think wall mounting it in front of a light would look really neat. You might also affix slides of pictures or translucent colored acrylic sheeting to add some visual interest if you feel it's too plain as is. That way you'd still get the little square patterning as well as putting more of your own touch to it. Good luck! Maybe you'll show us what you've come up with when you're done?  Smiley
37  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Do these exist? (specific tubing/straws) on: September 29, 2009 04:58:23 PM
So, while I've given up trying to do this for the upcoming competition, I'm in need of straws. Or straw advice..

I'm trying to make a lamp base and I figured that using crazy straws would be most excellent. The problem with that is that they're just so thin.. how could I wire them without pulling apart my wire? ..Assuming that half the wire could fit in there. I'm still doubtful of that.

Solution... maybe bubble tea twisty straws?
Problem... I don't think they exist.  Angry

Now I could be wrong but so far all I've been able to find are the normal bubble tea straws, or normal twisty/crazy/bendy straws. I don't want to give up! Has anyone seen anything like what I'm looking for?

Or maybe someone has an idea of what I could use to make said 1/2" diameter twisty straw? (or larger, larger is good too!)

If you can help me I promise pretty pretty twisty lamp pics with a tutorial. I'm making my own lampshades too, the whole lamp from scratch really but it won't be nearly as cool without your help guys.  Smiley

Aww, that's an absolutely perfect resting place for him. I lost my oldest ferret earlier this year also, while she was in the care of a friend of mine. She'd been ill for a while before that, then I had to move to a no-pets apartment (due to limited availability) with no notice after a house disaster and my huge-hearted friend was nice enough to take in all four of my little guys until I had my feet back on the ground. Cradles died in the night and my fiance and I went out and buried her on my friend's farm. She has a memorial rock but I wish I'd have thought of what you've done first. I'd like to keep her with me always but I feel kinda wrong about disturbing what was supposed to be her final resting place. We're moving again this month into a place where our fuzzy family can be happy together and though I hate thinking about losing any of my others, that's a really sweet way to keep them close.

Best wishes, he'd want you to feel better soon.
