1  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Stenciling glass- with enamel paint issues on: April 21, 2019 09:18:35 AM
Hi, I need some help here.
I am making a drinking glass for a friend. We are having issues using a stencil from Cricut, we applied the stencil on the glass. Before we did that, we cleaned the glass with rubbing alcohol, and when we used the Folkart enamel paint, we applied the paint twice to make sure there are no streaks, when it dries, the paint peels right off with the stencil!!  HELP! Any suggestions? We don't want to use etch stuff because it is going to be a candle, need to be black paint. I tried using glass painter's marker, and sharpie paint marker, it washes right off! We want it last longer! Huh Huh Huh Huh

I apologize in advance if I am in the wrong area... :-D

I found a few free bottle cap images, and I was wondering where can I get them printed without the copyright issues? Home? Fork over color ink and photo paper? Any other ideas? Huh Huh

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Basket Weave hat HELP!! on: November 29, 2014 09:52:01 PM
I have made a basket weaved slouchy hat from this link- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLj9qowOzRk&index=15&list=WL by using a 41 peg loom and thick yarn. I want to make it smaller (not slouchy) on the 36 or whatever is smallest from that one with worsten yarn doubled. Is there a pattern or something that will work on a smaller loom with a mesh edge that is not so small, not so hard to get pass the mesh edge?

*Hope this is clear, my first time posting in loom knitting *
4  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Best wool roving to use to be dye... on: June 15, 2014 04:56:12 PM
I am a newbie in needle felting, and I want to get into learning how to dye my own wool rovings with kool aid or easter egg dye. Does anyone know a good supplier or a good website that sells maybe 1lb of undyed wool, or suggestions on which one is the best wool to use and still able to use the wool to use in needle felting projects?  Smiley
5  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Microwave Glass Kiln on: March 17, 2014 11:53:19 AM
I am brand new at this Fuseworks Microwave Kiln. And I am wondering why I have these several huge bubbles at the top of my piece, can anyone explain to me? What I did is, I made sure all my glass pieces were 90 COE, and I might remembered I mixed up Fuseworks glass and regular 90 COE glass that I got from the glass store, does that affect the product? It had everything in there were from the glass store, except the white broken pieces were from the kit that it came with the kiln. Help!  Smiley
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Miniature House Terrarium on: March 07, 2014 12:51:04 PM
I decided to take a month off from school to cool down and decided to purchase this kit to keep myself busy, and I had a blast making it!! I purchased the kit from Ebay- The glass globe was shattered in million of pieces, so lucky Michaels sells it.

Close up:

Tree: I added it at the last minute-

Sorry for the mess on the table! :-D

Thanks!  Grin
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Teesha Moore Patches swap? on: January 30, 2014 02:24:45 PM

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / DIY bra strap? on: December 14, 2011 11:42:33 AM
I have big boobs, but small shoulders, so sometimes the strap goes all the way to the bottom to shorten, but its too long still. Shoulders are crooked so sometimes bra strap slips off. I want to make my own, to hold both sides together. I used string, but its just silly. Any suggestions? :-D
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pocket Knitter question on: December 01, 2011 12:03:52 PM
I purchased a pocket Knitter on sale on a great price while back. I was waiting for the perfect yarn to knit with. I found one that I really like, its 100% Acrylic yarn and I started using the yarn on the knitter, and I noticed the stitches are large. I was wondering, when you finish knitting to the right size, do you wash it to "set it"? I can't remember the formal word for it. That would shrink to tight stitches? HELP!  Undecided
