22  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Have you tried to highlight your hair at home? on: April 10, 2006 06:33:35 PM
I have used all kinds of foil...like supermarket brands, I have never had a problem, and I have never personally heard of that problem. However, if you use a metal dish or utensil to MIX the bleach...it will ruin the color. Although some manufactures recommend not using foil at all, but these normally aren't sold at the supermarket.

Also when you are using the foil, like PrincessAmanda said, you need to be pretty quick. Start at the top of your head, since hair is naturally lighter there it will be okay to go a little longer. But always check the color, wipe a little off with a paper towel, if you like the color as it is wipe off all the bleach you can, don't rub! and then just spray with cold water..that will stop the bleach from processing your hair any more. That way it wont matter if you are not finished with the rest of the weave yet.

Also they have papers to use instead of foil. They are much more expensive, but easier to do ( you only fold once ) and they stick really well, unlike foil you usually have to fold up the edges to prevent them from slipping. You also want to leave 1/8 to 1/4 inch gap between your scalp and where you start applying bleach since it will swell. This helps prevent the blotches you sometimes see at the scalp.

I know this wont help you much this time...but next time maybe.
I don't understand what you mean about using permentent vs demi for maintaining it..did you darken up your highlights?

I can't remember the name of the book, it is possible that I saw the picture I am thinking of on the hgtv website, I just remember a how to book on making cd clocks, I thought it was in there. It was just one of the books in the altered book series.

25  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Re: Polymer Clay Board? on: April 07, 2006 01:43:44 PM
I'd love to see a board for clay also...I don't understand why there isn't one?! Because there are a few types of clay, and I find them all interesting. But I like the poly clay personally, I stash a bunch of it when it is on sale. ( I have no place to work with it right now...but soon I hope!) Also I am just a beginner with it...I love looking for project ideas and such to get good ideas what I can do with it (whenever I get a chance) I guess everyone has a folder that they collect good ideas with, most the time when you see something it makes you think of something different lol. But seeing one project gives you like 50 ideas so I always scribble them down for later. Anyhooow my point was I would like to see alot more pictures, projects, tutorials, whatever about clay!

They look 1000000 no, infinity times better than before! I can't believe you did that, wonderful job!!! I have to say...I am SUPER proud of you too.. and I don't even know you! lol
No I just can't get over it.. I mean I know they are supposed to be dyed, but you did that beautiful color in koolaid...I am just like flabberghasted...something like that. I never knew shoes could look so good, and that's not even my style. I would wear those EVERYWHERE. And if someone got sick of it, I would kick them with that pointy toe. Hard. I love them. (I think this is my last edit, seriously I am using all my willpower)

It works for me, can I join? I have read the topics on how to do swaps, but I haven't done one yet... Sad How would this one work, I mean what would we make?

Thanks, guys! The fabric was faux stitched, I probably should have noted that, huh, haha. I picked the last couple yards of a bolt up for cheap, the pants I'd intended to use are in the process of becoming something else! The fabric is a very, very soft moleskin, I think. It's nice and light and comfortable to carry even loaded with all my crap!

LOL... well it looks great just the same. LOL (my husband keeps asking me what is so funny, cause I am really laughing out loud) I was so excited about the stitching...
