This almost made me cry.  This would be a great thing to get as a present!

I think it would be impossible, however if you could get it to say perfect when you stepped on it I would pay more than $100 for it.......not even decorated!

pretty sure someone thats handy with electric wire could figure it out. just backlit it with leds and have the switch turn on from pressure when stepped on. have the black lettering against a dark background so you can't see it until the light turns on, something frosted over the lights to diffuse them...
sorry rambling thoughts. but it is possible and shouldn't cost much!

I've never liked scales because I think it's a waste of floor space. My weight doesn't change much...if I ever see my stomach grow then I'll worry, hahaha. But I do adore this and wouldn't mind it on my floor at all!

oh so beautiful! I can relate to the finding them cheap. It's so easy to find them at the goodwill here, I just never have a use for them. My herbs in their various ugly pots would look so much classier. Maybe the dead leaves would be more camouflage too!

umm....envy much? I just adore adore adore the shelving units, especially the one for glass jars. That would be perfect for my bead and tiny stuff collection. where did you find such a stepped shelf?
I also think the cactus is rather clever and I am rather sad that I dont have one. haha.

Haha, almost the same story happened to my sister. she had a chair like that and even bought a book on how to do the diamond back. a few years later she was working for a furniture designer and for a short year was a furniture major.

you did a lovely job with it, and I'm sure you have plenty more upholstery/furniture projects still ahead =)
(I too am incredibly jealous of the $6 price tag)
27  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Re: Printing with turpentine on: June 25, 2008 08:08:06 PM
you -might- need to tape the image to be transferred down, or hold it in place really well. then apply the turpentine and rub down more then once, just to make sure your getting everything. I know when printmakers do a solvent transfer, they use a big press and apply whatever chemical they're using and go through the press multiple times. One time through won't get everything down, and the image wont be as vivid.
Hopefully the helps!

I would just love to see audience reaction. always priceless.

great job as stated! I love how they don't look like cheap prosthetics, because I am always put off by what I see in stores.

30  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: empty aquarium - what to do to make it creepy?? on: October 18, 2007 03:41:22 PM
mmm, if you could get a hold of a real fish skeleton that would be sweet.

but little tiny gravestones for your fishy friends would be appropriate! foam or sculpey or some such?
or a sunken ship, a snake/eel, black painted sticks and twigs...loch ness monster...

I really wouldn't dye the water (if you put any in there) or put -any- harmful chemicals in there for fear of future fishy friends. It would be safer to decorate dry then to have all this painted stuff and add water, unless it was well sealed.

how big is the tank? I just keep thinking of lavish scenes appropriate for my ....ill-fated 50 gal.
