1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Painting with Lipstick/Lipgloss and Cosmetics? on: August 19, 2009 04:00:11 PM
Does anyone have any experience painting and drawing with cosmetics on canvas? 

I have a ton of lipsticks and lipglosses that need to go, but I HATE throwing things away.  I also need some wall art... so putting two and two together, I figured it might be a really neat project.  My concern is that lip products get gooey/melted when it's hot, so what would happen if it was on a canvas?

Do you think sealing it would help?  If you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them!  Thanks!

That is perhaps the greatest thing I've seen in a while!  I wouldn't have even thought of knitting a Buddha, but it's awesome!  Did you write up a pattern along the way or base it on another pattern?

They're lovely!  Could you explain the outfits a bit?  Did you knit a very long cable for the dress and wrap it around the body?  And the bottom picture-- is the collar a long cable too?  Great job!  I'm very interested in your project!

Lovely! I was just about to start the hug me tight when I decided to pick up a project I started a month ago (and may never finish... I totally know where you're coming from!).  Awesome work!

I adore your pants!  I had a few pairs of those capri pants that I donated because they weren't flattering.  I wish I had them now so I could do that!  I think harem pants are adorable but they often have that silly dropped, um, inseam.  I'm going to need to find some pants to do this to!  Awesome job with these and with the top!

I love your stuff but I'm always too afraid I'd break acrylic jewelry.  Steel is a lovely development!  I don't know what you've been using to finish the steel, but jeweler's files are pretty standard to get rough edges off metal.  They're tiny and pretty quick too... also sold at basically any home improvement store.

When I saw the icon photo, I thought it was a wristwarmer.  That would be super cute too!  Good job.  I really like the little bees.

Citrus and chocolate is SO delicious.  You made them so pretty too!  Is this from a cookbook or your own recipe?  I'd love to try it!

Love, love, love it!  My friends and I had this long conversation about how absolutely adorable Hungry is.  I want to make one too! Awesome job.

Has anyone seen the photo of the originals on the creator's website (Ruth Cross)?  The palm and thumb look like they're a sideways moss stitch that morph into the ribs around the wrists.  I would love to figure out how to do this, but my knitwear designing skills are not up to par.  If anyone figures out how to do this, I'd be eternally grateful!  Of course, the pattern posted here is bea-utiful, but I think the texture of the originals really gives it an extra something (though I think the thumb looks funny textured).
