1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / First Aid: Strategies for hot glue gun burns on: November 09, 2012 10:28:23 AM
So... fellow craftsters, it's happend to all of us...a searing glob of glue on the skin.  But my question is when the you get burnt with hot glue are you supposed to take it off right away?  Or let it cool down first?   Huh

I ask because more forearm grazed across a dime sized dollop of hot glue and attached itself to my skin.  I tired to take it off while still hot...buuut it took a good hunk of epidermis with it - like I could actually see the layers...

Do you let it cool down so you can pick it off better?  Or take it off right away?  Because I got a hole in my arm, but no burn...
2  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Conjoined Pumpkin-Head on: October 17, 2012 09:14:33 AM
I made this for mlheran for the swap Vintage/Retro Halloween although in retrospect I went for a more antique-y look.  My craft partner really made it easy for me when she said she loved pumpkin heads and skeletons and physical anomalies.  It was like BAM! Conjoined Pumpkin-Head!

My initial plan was to make a wire armature and cover it with paper mache, but the armature was a bit too small and slippery for paper mache (or I lacked the finesse) so I switched to covering the body with sculpy.  For the pumpkin heads I ended up ditching the wire armatures in favor of plain ol balled up newspaper.  After baking, I sanded them down a bit and painted it with acrylics. The heads were attached by a rod and E6000. Im really pleased how it turned out, especially since my experience with sculpy is limited.

Entire back and front!

The Beluga Whale and Narwhal are part of the Monodontidae Family (despite the fact they both have more than one tooth)
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Moving Panorama - Undulating Fjord on: August 29, 2012 06:12:23 PM
I wanted to make a present for my boyfriend but was having trouble getting some inspiration, so I texted him asking what his five favorite words were.  A couple mintues later he texted me back and in the mix gave me these two beauties: Undulate & Fjord.

I just put the two together, wasn't hard conceptually... pull the tab "Undulate" and the water moves!

The entire thing, from the frame to the individual layers, are constructed out of bristol board colored with my trusy Prismacolor colored pensils and inked out with a quill pen.  There are four land layers (not including the background) and three water layers running between them.  It was really fun to make!
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / California Animals on: August 24, 2012 03:30:26 PM
I love living in California and all the really awesome natural features of this place!  So I did 16 drawings and put them a zine to pass out as party favors at my birthday party.  The zine measures  2 x 1 inches.
