wow, you inspired me to start Ogee with some leftover cotton-ease that i had lying around. i'm wondering - did you use the size 11 needles called for in the pattern? i've started with them, but it seems like it's awfully loose and floppy. i wonder if i should go down a size? any words of wisdom?

ooh, so cute! i'd like to do something similar too! whenever i see those storage bins kind of like this from pottery barn or something, i always think i want them. i'd be so organized! though i'm really not terribly disorganized to begin with.

though i'd have to make it bigger and fill it with yarn!

Bluparkart, thanks for the tips!  I am new to the resin thing also, so any tips are great!

I have also embedded some objects... look at my first attempts
Unfortunately, mine are just clear, I didn't know how to incorporate the dye yet... But thanks to you, now I do!! Smiley 

hey, good job, RoxNGemz! i like the one with the metal circles - are those jump rings? cool!

darn it, i just went to michaels for findings, but now i may have to go again for resin! Wink

very nice! i've been thinking i'd like to try resin too. i second vote for adding findings to make pendants of them. feel free to send them to me if they're not your style! Wink

29  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / help with sanding/buffing? on: September 29, 2007 11:47:24 AM
hey eveybody,

i am completely new at poly clay and have been doing some reading here on craftster and at diane b.'s glass attic. i made some flat tiles that i want to sand and buff, and maybe add some kind of polish/finish to make them more shiny. i read that using a dremel is a good way to do the sanding and buffing, so i tried it. i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong, but i can't tell any difference between tiles i've worked on and those i haven't! maybe i'm not doing it long enough? maybe i'm using the wrong tools? here's some pics of everything; i'm hoping someone can offer some suggestions. first, here's some of the tiles. the blue ones have some transparent clay marbled in. the whitish ones are all transparent clay, and have some silver leaf on them.


this is my dremel and the attachments i've tried for sanding/buffing.

and here's the other attachments i have in my toolbox. do i have the right things, or do i need to go get something different?

thanks for whatever insights you can offer!
