1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: Wee House Craftalong-Ongoing 2011-Forever! on: May 05, 2013 10:06:35 PM
Since I finished my Wee House of Alice last year, I took a long break before tackling my new project which is a Wee Room not an entire House.  I didn't have quite the attention/time to finish doing an entire house anymore, so I'm focusing on roomboxes that will hopefully help me finish them faster!

Here's a WIP shot of it - it's going to be a bakery =)

I think your best bet is to make a dome armature out of aluminum foil and cover that with polymer clay to attach your sculptures to.

I used Aleene's Tacky Glue for everything in my wee house - it was super strong and didn't take too much time to dry or for things to hold in place.

Why don't you try using a tiny cone shaped bead to act as the vase?

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Miniaturists/Shrine makers: How do you organize tiny things? on: July 21, 2012 06:10:30 PM
I have those divided boxes meant for bead work which are great for the tiny items.  I also use Ziploc bags, label them with a Sharpie, and then organize them into plastic storage boxes that I can stack on the corner of my desk.  I found that is the best way for me to keep track of random wood pieces, findings, and found objects!

Those look awesome!  Where did you find that key fabric?
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Gothic Inspired Bag using Blue Tape Stencils ~~~~ w/ Mini Tutorial on: July 05, 2012 05:10:25 PM
I made this bag using stencils made out of blue tape and some fabric paint.

It started out it's life looking like this but after a year stashed in the back of my closet, I decided that it needed a fresh coat of paint in order to motivate me to carry it out more!

All I did was Google some images and transferred it out on pieces of blue tape layered together.  I used an Exacto knife to cut out the parts (on a cutting mat - not on the purse!!!) that I wanted the paint to fill.

I mixed some acrylic paint with fabric medium (2:1 ratio) to make my own fabric paint!

I painted about 3 coats on the bag - letting it dry 1 hour in between coats or 20 minutes with the help of a blowdryer.  

After it is completely dry, you just need to carefully remove the blue tape with the help of tweezers or an Exacto knife!  I cleaned up my edges with some Q-Tips soaked in nail polish remover.

You might want to lightly iron the bag with a piece of fabric on top of the stenciled portions for 20-30 seconds to really set the fabric paint if you didn't use a blowdryer during the stenciling process.

You can use this method on most bags, but just make sure the blue tape sticks really well to the material so that when you stencil the the images, the fabric paint only goes on the areas that you want it to go.  I hope you have fun breathing new life into purses that are hiding in your closet too Smiley

I really want to start another Wee House but I know that I really don't have any time or space to make a new one, so I did this with scrap pieces of wood to help feed the addiction!
