1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Gold foil / Gold luster on: June 02, 2015 02:13:16 AM
Hi everyone Smiley Sorry if this is in the wrong spot - I hope it's not.

I have been spending alot of my crafting time painted porcelain cups and I really want to start adding gold on to my designs, but alot of the bake on gold paints are super metalic rather than the super shiny gold foil look.

Is there are particular paint for this or would you use gold leaf? If you use gold leaf what seal would you use that is not toxic?

Many thanks
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help with lining and inner corsets on: April 16, 2013 03:17:21 AM
Hello lovlies!

I am having alot of trouble understanding lining, and creating an inner-corset.

Could you recommend some patterns that have an inner corset so I can practise my sewing skills?

Many thanks Smiley and apologies if this has been asked before - I cannot find what I am looking for anywhere

3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Frankenweenie Body Art (I was the model) on: March 01, 2013 03:24:18 PM
Last week I was lucky enough to work with some of NZ's best body artist from BodyFX. It was for an Academy Awards Party and I got body painted as Frankenweenie... just thought all the makeup types would love this as much as I did Cheesy

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / My (evergoing) DIY wedding list... on: August 18, 2012 08:32:15 PM
So today I woke up and nearly had a heart attack as I realised that I have a little over 14 months until my wedding >.< Since we're getting married in December I ideally want everything to be done by November to avoid rocketing Christmas prices.

Out budget is about NZD$6000  (approx USD$4500) with a safety  net of $2000 but I would prefer to put this towards our honeymoon or house. We are having the reception at my mums house as she has an awesome garden that is like an overgrown Alice in Wonderland/Enchanted garden. Our theme is 'Old World Luxe meets Enchanted Garden', I have no idea about the colors yet >.< We are also considering having our ceremony at sunset (Dec is summer time for us) and have a desert reception

My list of stuff to make..

1) Save the Date cards
usually I am against Save the Dates for people in the same country, but I have 5 friends I am inviting who live in England and thought it would be nice for them to have a written 'pre warning' so they have the option of saving for the airfares if they want to come Smiley

2) Wedding Dress

3) Bridesmaid Dresses and Flower Girl Dresses

4) Bridal Flowers

5) Center pieces for the table

6) Ring cushion/box thing

7) Art pieces
Instead of traditional programs I thought it would be really cool to do a few paintings showing what is going on and what food will be served

Cool The food
I couldnt believe how much the caterers were wanting. Our entire wedding budget would only get us about 6 finger food bits per guest >.< Lots of places were really nasty to us when we said we wanted vegetarian food and no meat.

9) A Skull candle for the unity ceremony

10) My veil/or headpiece

And the countdown begins!!
