Here is the morton salt handbook for making homemade dough:


Is this what you are looking for?

I hope someone out there has some suggestions. I have small children also and have wondered about this as well.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Rovel Watches? on: September 07, 2005 05:00:44 AM
Hi - I've seen rovel watches at flea markets and at various stores with fantastic bands. There may be other brands out there, not sure. The one I have has a great cheatah skin pattern band. I'm wondering if you can buy the watch bodies do different bands yourself. But I can't find a website or supplier for these watches. Anyone out there know of them or know what I am talking about?

Hi - I don't know how old this thread is, but it has been very helpful to me. I am interested in trying Easy Cast and using some of the molds, but I can't locate a store in Maryland that sells them. Does anyone know of any?

Great idea. Thanks!
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / how to flatten silver wire on: May 23, 2005 11:10:00 AM
Hi - I saw a segment on DIY Jewelry making on making your own silver earrings with silver wire. The shape was made and then flattened by hammering. I tried it, but my silver ended up looking bad (scratched, uneven, yucky). I just used a regular hammer. Is there a special hammer I should be using? Or a really soft wire? Help!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Art Clay? on: May 11, 2005 11:37:16 AM
Has anyone tried making silver jewelry using Art Clay? Here's a link:


I'm intrigued because it seems much easier to do than lost wax method, but I wonder if the finished result REALLY looks like silver. I'd hate to invest all the money in the starter kit and butane torch and then not really like the result.
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Working with silver? on: May 09, 2005 11:51:19 AM
Hi - I've just become totally inspired by a few episodes on DIY Jewelry making. I'd love to learn the lost wax method of casting in silver. I understand you just create your piece out of wax and then send it to a caster. Anyone done this? If so, do you know of any resources to learn all this? And how do you find a foundry that will just cast one ring or one pendant?

I saw this bracelet on DIY - the jewelry making show. I've been going through the episodes listed online, but I can't find it.

Wow, I'm inspired by your pictures and I want to try. But I've been trying to find some jump rings locally. Michaels has some but they list their sizes in mm's instead of inches. You used 1/8" right? What would that be in mm? Michaels offers 4mm and 6mm. I guess 6mm would be best to start since its a little bigger (though still pretty tiny).
