1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Shrink Plastic Chairs in 1:18 Scale on: May 25, 2011 07:12:06 AM

Click for a slideshow.

So I got creative over the weekend. These are 1:18 scale shrink plastic chairs. I regret not taking pictures of the process, but I will be doing so.

The chairs are drawn out flat, in 1:6 scale (Playscale) and then are decorated, in one case, with a French provincial-ish design, the other is flat out Hello Kitty love in the form of Charmmy Kitty.

The other two are a frosted version, that was actually the very first chair, and a clear chair that I am calling a mini-mock Louis Ghost Chair.

After the shrinking process, I quickly wrap the still hot around a can on Avon powder. Semi cooled, I then would pull together the center front. If you look close you see that I'll have to glue the center front together. I'm currently debating glue of choice. I'm torn between super glue and beading glue. I've also hesitated on using my glue gun but an experiment with the very first chair which was a black ladder back. The glue just didn't hold. Super glue might melt the plastic is my concern. So we'll see what happens.

On a side note, the black SP is utterly terrible with the curved chair. With the ladder back it worked pretty well.

The CK chair, has a seat for it, although in a couple photos using it as a table top for the hot pink legs. It's actually the seat to the chair. It's a hair off in measurements, but I'll fill that in with a glue or something and Sharpie it.

So I made these yesterday, I think they turned out pretty decent considering the burns I acquired.

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / My metal fairies on: April 11, 2011 10:59:55 AM
I did these over the winter but I'm just starting to thaw out and catch up on all my sharing.

These are fairy figures that I cast using model metal and a mold. Two different poses and you can make the figures into charms or magnets.

4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / How to find cameos wholesale? on: August 25, 2007 09:46:49 AM
I really want to find cameos wholesale. I'm looking to buy a dozen at a time. Looking for the modern resin ones though. I see the skull and crossbone ones all the time, and I did find a source for them that is fairly cheap, but I want to buy 12 at a time and at a $1 each sometimes, that can get pricey. I want to do cameos f or gifts this year for all my goth type friends and all my not so goth type family. So I need a pretty wide selection and cheap.

I went to go get some new patterns at http://www.needlecrafter.com/patterns.html today, and keep getting a "403 Forbidden" message. Anyone else having issues with it? Has it been changed?
6  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Can I just do a woo hoo?? on: April 23, 2007 04:28:49 PM
I got my first SS sheet today. Sushi Bar. I can't really decide just yet what to do, I'm wavering between a simple pillow case, and embroidering a blouse with sushi themes. Thanks for making me want to embroider again!!

A fast question, does anyone know how many transfers each sheet is good for? And how do you all use your sheets? Do you trace? Or iron?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Head bows for EGl on: April 19, 2007 09:10:57 AM

So for those who have no clue what EGL is..see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gothic_Lolita I'm told that info isn't the best, but it will suit to explain what these are.

Anyhow, cotton broadcloth and some lace. They're about 4" wide by 2" wide. And both have head straps and there will be more as a gift to someone on another list I'm on. My first try with this type of headdress though.
