Thank you, everyone! Your comments are greatly appreciated!

Thanks, guys! I actually used a toothpick dipped in the icing to "paint" Kermit and his banjo on there! It definitely took some time, but it was perfect for getting his thin arms and fingers on there.

Oh!  That song makes me teary-eyed every time I hear it (not in a sad way though, not sure why it has that effect on me). 

Haha! My brother started tearing up in the movie theater when we went to see the new Muppets Movie that came out in 2011 together, so you're not the only one!
3  COOKING / Dessert / Rainbow Connection cake! on: September 02, 2013 08:22:32 PM
Any Muppets fans out there!? Well, my brother and I definitely are! So, of course, for his 23rd birthday, what could be more appropriate than a cake inspired by Kermit's beautiful song "Rainbow Connection"? This is a chocolate-coffee cake decorated with buttercream icing and peanut butter M&Ms. Everything is made from scratch (except for the M&Ms of course)!

I just finished my second semester of my school's sculpture class, and this was the big project that took pretty much the entire semester to complete (including working on it during most of my off periods as well)! Yeah, I was waaaay behind the rest of my class and had to rush to finish a couple quick pour pieces and a pop art piece to meet the quota to pass the class, but it was totally worth it, After all, Hellboy is my favorite super hero (if you can call him that), so I wanted him to look as perfect as I possibly could! Of course, there are a couple things I would have spent more time on if I had had more time, but for my first clay sculpture (first semester we did things like coil pots, mugs, and soap carvings) I am EXTREMELY pleased with the results! I currently only have this one picture. My camera makes him look orange, so I had to steal this picture from my sister's iPhone. Unfortunately, she only had this one picture, but hopefully I can get some more pictures up soon!!

As always, comments and critiques are welcome!!

Life-size ceramic bust of Hellboy, painted in acrylics.

The fishing line idea, I think, would work really well. It's clear, so you can string the CDs together without worrying about it making lines in your picture. Or even a thin piano wire. That would give you a little more stability, and I don't think it would be noticeable from the distance that would be required to see the image.

Walmart is half the cost of Joann's.

Haha! That doesn't surprise me one bit. Thank you!

Yes, you can try Joanne and I've also seen them both at walmart.

Okay, thanks!

How fun are these!!  If your hot glue starts to peel off (it might), you could maybe try shoe goo or E6000.

Yeah, I've been kind of worried it might, so thanks for the advice! Could I get that at a craft store like Joanne's, or would I have to go somewhere else?
10  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Cheetah Boots! on: March 19, 2013 07:14:05 PM
So, I took some of my mom's old brown boots that she never wears, and covered them with cheetah fabric! They're are modeled after Mimi's cheetah boots from Rent, with the brown zipper on the side and everything!

The final product:

And here's a 'before' picture:

I've never done any work with shoes before, so I'm really happy with how they turned out! They're pretty flimsy, so they look a little warped at spots in the pictures, but you get the point! They are sewed directly onto the original boot for the leg part, and then hot glued down near the sole.

If anyone has any tips to give me for revamping boots in the future, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for looking! Comments, critiques, and advice welcome as always!
