1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Need help sealing acrylic paint... on: August 26, 2009 11:45:55 AM
I been painting different materials with Elmer's Painters. After a lot of research, I discovered they are just filled with acrylic paint, so craft paint. I had drawn on assorted plastics with these pens and want to seal them. My question is, what do I use? Clear spray paint just eats the craft paint up. I dont know if regular glue would work since glue would become tacky when it gets wet, right?

If any of you use these pens, they unscrew so you can refill them with paint! No more spending $10+ on a set of 5.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Quetion regarding felt on back of resin... on: April 04, 2009 08:28:31 PM
My resin pieces are currently in the curing stage. In the past, I have glue a piece of felt to the back of my pendants. I slathered on super glue and adhered a piece of felt. When it dried, it was really weird looking... very bubbly looking. It is hard to explain but just imagine glued fiberous felt lol.

I have some E6000 now. Do you think it would be more successful with felt then the super glue? Does anyone else use felt backing?
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Picture Sizes for Resin... on: March 29, 2009 05:21:24 PM
I am about to work with resin again. Going to use primarily paint palettes. How do you all get the paper/picture the perfect size for the mold?
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / ICP Stencil help please! on: December 28, 2008 06:57:32 PM
I cannot for the life of me find a Shaggy2Dope stencil. I would like to find one of Shaggy2Dope that is as simple as the following of Violent J ( http://www.spraypaintstencils.com/a-zlistings/Violent-J-image.gif ). Or a different stencil that is fairly easy of the two of them seperately... particularly a good one of the face paint.

I am wanting to make pillowcases, one with Shaggy and one with Violent J. I am having no luck, please help me. Thanks.
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Necklace Idea for BF Needed... on: October 05, 2007 11:08:50 PM
My boyfriend wants me to make him a necklace ( he made me one that I cherish ). I usually have tons of ideas for necklaces but my taste might not be appropriate for a 27 year old man. I really want to make him one but clueless where to start. His interests arent that great to base upon... Hematite ( but hes scared to wear it to work in fear of breaking ), Jacksonville Jaguars, and Body Building. Favorite colors are Black and Orange.
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Simple, Childish Necklaces... on: August 04, 2007 12:39:46 AM
 I have a very immature/childish taste in jewelry. I tried to take good pictures, but the lighting just wasnt working with me. So most the colors are distorted and/or blurry.

1. Blue suade cording with a blue glow-in-the-dark star and on the length of the makeshift chains ( jumprings ) are a few tiny blue glow-in-the-dark pony beads. Also, a tiny bell at the ends of each chain.

2. This one is my favorite. The colors are actually VERY bright neons with matching trains. The trains are sooooo adorable and they won my heart over.

3. Blurry, I know. Its just simple glow-in-the-dark star beads and various colors of glow-in-the-dark tiny pony beads. It really is charming in person... reminds me of CareBears.

4. Another very basic necklace... purple suade cording with glow-in-the dark stars.

5. Red suade cording with skulls and a spider ( they was cheap halloween rings ). There is black beads on the 'chains' here too.
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Yet Another Resin Question... on: June 21, 2007 08:18:14 PM
For paint pallete molds, what do you use to cut your paper ( if in fact using paper ) and what size is the cut out of paper?

Ive searched for a 1" hole punch without luck. But then I was thinking, arent the paint palletes 1" circles? If so, then how would I be able to embed the paper I want when the 1" would be the top of the mold. Hope you all understand what Im trying to say.

I just dont know how everyone is able to get the perfect size of paper to embed into their molds.

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / 'Live' Ammo & Resin Question. on: March 19, 2007 01:31:08 AM
I have several bullets in tact that I would like to embed into resin. Since resin heats while setting, do you think it would heat up  and cause the bullets to discharge or anything? Im a bit scared because I dont know exactly how much heat  is transferred and how much heat the bullets could handle. 
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Etch cream burn advice needed... on: January 14, 2007 04:32:09 PM
The other day I was working with Armour Etch and it mysterious got on my face in three locations. I didnt know it was there until it started burning aka eating away at my face. I rinsed with water as directed but for about 30 minutes instead of just the reccomended 15. Well, them spots turned really disgusting and green. Two of the spots have started healing and scabbing up. However, the largest spot is still very green and has a hole. I know it sounds gross, and it is... very much so. I applied ointment on it and it refuses to cure. I live in Texas and we are are going through icy conditions so I cant go to the doctor to get it checked out. Also, Im lacking insurance and dont have the money anyways. Does any one have any suggestions on what I can do to speed up this process? Does anyone know if this can be poisoning my blood supply as to why its green ( I assume infection )? I know the bottle says it can be fatal and/or cause severe respiratory problems and so forth. Should I take pictures and write the company? But what would good would that do? Maybe a sympathy letter and perhaps a coupon for some more etch cream? hahah I dont want that. I think it needs to get a better warning label, at least. Please help me. I am disgusted with my looks because of this and cant stop crying.
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Wax Removal... Need help. on: October 02, 2006 03:00:34 PM
Ive got a very nice crushed velvet throw and somehow managed to get wax all over it. The wax is about 1/2-1inch thick. I dont know how to get this off the velvet without having to shave it down. Maybe that made sense. I know I could use a blow dryer and heat the wax up, but I think that will create a bigger mess. Any ideas on how to remove it better? Thanks
