Gorgeous! I can imagine how painful it was and then how satisfying.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Copper flatware on: March 26, 2012 08:57:23 PM
Hello! I have not logged into Craftster for over 2 years. That is because I have been very busy away at school trying to turn this crafting obsession into a profession! I will be earning a degree in design very soon. I have picked up many interesting skills along the way, travelled across the world, and fell in love with metal working. Slowly I will be re-released to the craftster community-- where it has all started-- hopefully with fresher eyes and higher standards for my own work. Taking a look around, I am so glad that the community is still going strong and vibrant as ever. Thank you all!

But here is a sneak peak of a recent project: Copper flatware.

They are not usable because copper is too soft. It was more of an exercise in forming sheet metal and a study of proportions. Tons more work will be posted when I eventually get my website going. Any feedback is welcomed Smiley

4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / breaded, baked zucchini on: August 15, 2009 04:21:54 PM
This recipe is simple and delicious! Sorry I do not have any pictures. We ate them all before I remembered  Roll Eyes

1 medium size zucchini or Italian squash, cut into 1/4 inch slices (on a bias if you're fancy)
1 egg, beaten, put in a shallow dish for dipping

Dry stuff mix, put in a shallow dish for breading
 -2/3 cup of bread crumbs, pre-seasoned if you want
 -3-4 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
 -garlic salt, freshly ground pepper, oregano to taste

Arrange your work station in squash slices, egg dip dish, breading dish, then baking sheet for an efficient work flow!

Dunk a slice of zucchini or squash in egg. Let the excess drip. Transfer slice to the breading station and coat both sides with breading evenly. Place on baking dish. You don't have to leave much room, but do not overlap the pieces.
Set oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Bake in oven for 10 minutes, then flip all the slices and bake for another 10 minutes. (7 minutes the second time if you like your veggies less mushy.)

Enjoy! Even my sister, who hates squash, said that I was the first person to cook acceptable squash.

Sorry, I don't want to give detailed instructions for this lamp because I want to keep it as an original concept. But I will post general directions for paper mache.

I used a balloon as a base. Lube it with a thin layer of vasaline so you can remove the balloon later.
The recipe for paper mache is 1 part all purpose flour and 2 parts water. Bring water to a boil, then whisk in the flour until it forms a smooth paste. Turn off the fire immediately when the paste forms, or else it will seize and burn. While you wait for the paste to cool before you can touch it, rip or cut about 4 cm x 15cm strips of tissue paper, news paper, whatever you want. Newspaper is definitely stronger but it it not transparent. When you can touch the paste, dip your paper strips one at a time in the paste, then squeegee the excess with your fingers. Slap it on the balloon all around. Keep going until you have 4-ish layers of tissue paper or 2 or 3 of newspaper. Remember to leave a hole for the balloon to be taken out of when it dries! Drying will take a couple of days. When it is ready, pop the balloon and remove it through the hole. The hole can be for the light bulb, filling candy, painting the inside, whatever. Patch up the hole with another couple of layers if you want a closed form.
Hope this helps!

What a lucky kid! You paid so much attention to details. Great job. This beats the blanket forts my sister and I made on our bunk beds. Roll Eyes
