Pedeka comes from when I was in college and taking a Russian language class. I had to do my homework in long hand cyrillic. The letter aren't even close to English. One day when doing homework the neighbor frat guy came over to borrow some beer or a sweeper or something that he never manged to have at his place, and he saw my name, Rebecca, at the top of the paper. But it was in cyrillic letters and he couldnt read it. He just kept asking me who " Ped-ay-kuh" was and why I was doing his homework. It just has kinda stuck with me since then.

Ive never seen the peel off paints "in action" but I have been tempted in the store to pick some up. I'll trust you if you say they work well then. I'm not sure about etching. My husband wants a monkey in a fez playing the bongos under palm trees.... plus the wording......that might get a bit complex for etching. Thanks so much!!

Ooohhh such a housewarming gift for an officemate of mine...........I'm thinking about using the Cowboys and Indians I saw at the Dollar Store . The hats and headdresses  might have more surface area to stick together so it won't look as fragile as the Army Guys.

How about bobbins as deedly bobs for curtain trim? Use tape measures as tie backs.

Candles remelt just fine... just careful about mixing scents if you use more than one candle. I learned that the hard way. I used to do aromatherapy candles in antique teacups. Its very simple. I used to hand the wicks from straws balanced across the lip of the cup. If you can get milk glass cups, they glow beautifully when lit.

I have cheated before and just taken and old comforter from Goodwill, washed it up really well and covered it with a "bag" made from 2 flat sheets. If the comforter isnt too fluffy you can get away with a double sheet for a double comforter. Measure first.. if any doubt go up one size of sheet to a queen. You can put buttons or ties at the open end of the "bag" to make washing easier. ( OK soooo its a duvet cover...it still works)
329  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / How to paint a mirror tiki bar sign on: July 12, 2005 11:10:45 AM
My husband brought home a very large "curb rescued" framed mirror in great shape. I opened my mouth and told him it would be no problem to paint it up as a bar sign for his fantasy Tiki Lounge. I've got a design, but I dont know what kind of paint to use. I dont want to do faux stained glass with this design, but I'm not sure if regular acrylic won't look flat and reflect wierdly. I also will have to clean this. Has anyone had any experience with glass paints that you dont have to bake on? Sorry if this has been covered somewhere else, but I looked and couldn't find anything. Thanks!!
