1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tacky clock to wall art on: August 22, 2013 07:08:07 AM
Been wanting to try this for a while. I bought a tacky picture frame with a nature scene and a clock in it from the 70s and replaced the nature scene and clock with sticks ( basically I just reused the frame with silhouettes of leaves on the glass

Not sure if I put this in the right board

The clock I started with

Process pic ( sticks still needed to be spray painted)

Finished product

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Leather belt cuff on: May 13, 2013 11:02:43 AM

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / geek cred on: August 15, 2008 09:28:31 PM
just some quickies i made the other day when i was bored

the other day i was  cleaning my closet and found a pile of tuxedo shirts from back when i was in highschool band (I played oboe)... i decided that i didn't want to waste them, and just happened to find a leftover package of iron on transfer paper, which usually all flakes off (probably because i buy the cheapest stuff) anyways since the tux shirt is 100% cotton and going to be washed significantly less than a t-shirt i printed out some enlarges sprite images from super mario bros 3 (my fav game) and gave it a little geeky cred

I also had this old hat which i decided could use a face lift
super mario world feather sprite+ iron on transfer+ white craft felt+ twist tie+ a little hot glue= a nice new feather
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Stone pendant on: August 15, 2008 09:20:53 PM

unfortunatley this is a very bad pic of this project... its a stone i engraved and turned into a pendant... the stone is actually a dark blue green, and as the photo was taken in photobooth, its a mirror image of the real thing. The symbol on it is the Chi-Ro, essentially its the first 2 letters of the word christ in greek. I was tired of always wearinga  cross so i looked into symbols of the early church and found this
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / first silk screenings on: March 03, 2007 04:06:31 PM
my first silk screenings, been wanting to do this for year, did these in texiles class, palnning on doing many more, this is the type of silkscreening that uses paper stencils though, not quite as cool but still great, getting good with an exacto blade

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Silver casting on: February 17, 2007 09:13:01 PM

so this was my first ever silver cast piece, I only made the cross, not the chain...  I figure its pretty good for a first casting...except where my teacher dropped the wax version and reattached it crooked, but thats ok he was a good teach so i'll forgive him,... I'll prob not cast silver again as I don't have the set up for it, but it was fun to try

(the color is a bit off in the pic... my scanner was acting up.... it does have a bit of a gold shine to it though as its got korean silver in it (mixed with sterling silver))

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / resin cast pieces on: December 30, 2006 07:31:49 AM
made the originals out of plasticine then made molds off those and cast out of resin.... they are actually shiney and black but i had to lighten the pic so that detail would show up. The Bracelet is made of binding and has a resin bead I made on it, the angel necklace is made of braided fishing line, and the keychain is a resin piece attached to part of a keychain i ripped apart
10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / this painting took forever! on: November 21, 2006 07:52:40 AM
well not forever... then it wouldn't be done now... but it took a few days working all day on it... anyways, first attempt on a really realistic painting of a person (and my painting teacher doesn't allow us to use black paint, so getting those dark skin tones was a challenge), sorry bout the weird reflections from my camera flash... couldn't get it to work without the flash yesterday

this piece is part of a series... the rest can be found at
basically any painting with people stareing at the sun on there is part of ther series
