1  Re: polymer clay and printed paper pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by iradaska on: September 13, 2012 07:31:48 AM

These are new pendants made with new materials.

This time I stick the pics outrigh with multipurpose glue and later I applied yellow sticklack on the outer side. It doesnt change its colours, luckly!!!

I should mention that the pics are laser printed. I havent checked yet whether ink printings suffer modifications when applying sticklack.

Thanks for seeing again!

2  my Ears see Ye! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by iradaska on: September 13, 2012 07:21:43 AM

Its so simple that I think its not worthy to explain what I did. Its obvious for you all, experts!!!!

I would like to ask you what other nice round things you can think of, because when I had to paint them I could only think of eyes. I dont like sport balls!

Thanks for seeing!!!

3  Crixus Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by iradaska on: September 13, 2012 07:11:12 AM

I was trying to make polymer clay beads and thinking what to do with them once finished. Then an idea crossed my head: Crixus!!! I remembered my boyfriend always mentions how nice his necklace looks when watching Spartacus and so I made it on the spur of the moment without planning.

It was a true mess. Problems followed one another and its quite weak finally. Though it looks ok, doesnt it?

The fastener of the original necklace is really cool (Theres a sort of stick that passes through a small ring and thats all!) but I wasnt able to sculp such tiny stuff and make sure it would be resistent enough.

Thanks for seeing and any tip/criticism is welcome!

5  polymer clay and printed paper pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by iradaska on: April 08, 2012 01:45:53 PM


Hey ye!

These are a kind of experiment.
I made some polymer clay pendants and then I felt too lazy to hand-paint them. I decided to print some nice patterns from my photoshop collection and the fairy is an illustration by Rebecca Daumier (that one will be a present for my aunt!)

The point is that... the process and my material are both so so so shabby...

I used vinyl-latex to stick the paper to the clay but the paper on the round edges (the heart ones mainly) tends to break...

Im happy enough for not to feel embarrassed of my anti-professional and tasteful work.

Have you ever tried to stick paper to polymer clay? what have you used for it?

any tip is more than welcome!!!

6  Wax crayon art in More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions by iradaska on: March 28, 2012 01:57:08 PM
Hey, I wanted to make a fake glazed window with melted wax crayon but I must had picked wrong the sort of paper for it. I used the waste of transparent cover for books (the one which has some glue itself). It didnt work as hoped, but I wanted to keep the amazing "stuff" that came out anyway . I tried to fix it in a usual drawing paper ironing it a little bit, but the paper sheet curls up so if I try to make it flat the wax stuff brokens -of course.

I decided to scratch the broken piece and by chance I liked the wax stains Smiley. I think I could draw something nice and keep it as a nice background. I think that if you want to keep the wax it has to be thin, and if you like the abstract backgraund it generates youd better need a thick one to scratch it easily. In any case you can reuse the wax!!!!!!!

Have you ever used this technique?
What sorts of paper keep the wax? Any idea?

Thanks for seeing and helping!!! ^^

7  Re: Fabric Christmas Wreath in Winter Holidays by iradaska on: March 05, 2012 01:14:48 PM
Really nice! Ive done an alike wreath and you may like my hanger Wink

Its made with an old sweather, some felt for the leaves and a few trinkets. As you see I just pinned some of the same fabric with a pin and then hanged it in a thumbtack.

I hope it helps!!!

8  Re: How do you make a fabric rose? in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by iradaska on: March 05, 2012 01:05:17 PM
Hey! Ive learnt how to make this kind of flowers with fabric in this way. You can use any kind of fabric I think. Its quite easy but the first attempt can be a muddle! Just try 2 or 3 times as a training before doing it for your project.

Take a long piece of fabric and sew a line near one of the edges. Youll need some fabric left so do not do it too close to the edge.

Then pull the thread and it will start to curl up. When youre happy with the flower (very open or maybe like a bud) get a knot and make some stitches to join the bottom of the flower. That could be messy! If youre tired of it just glue it! ^^

I hope it helps! Good luck!
