11  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / various acrylic paintings (quite picture heavy) on: June 29, 2007 07:22:04 PM

12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Movie designs in perler beads on: May 03, 2007 07:51:03 PM
Hey!  Smiley

I need help in looking for somewhere that has good patterns for fantasy movies that I could use to do perler beads.

Movies like star wars, lotr, the dark crystal, willow, legend, harry potter.

Does anyone know of some places that have these sort of patterns?

Thanks a bunch!

ETA: i wanted to add that i've tried searching for cross stitch patterns but i don't find much for these movies.

This is my first set of magnets.  I tried the Famowood epoxy coating stuff.  It sure can be bubbly. I just wanted to use it  because I liked the whole "hardly any smell" part of it.  I'm definitely going to get some castin' craft soon.

The whole project does make me want to really, really get serious with resin crafts, though!  I really enjoy the medium.

14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Resin Bracelets, napkin rings, more on: November 11, 2006 08:49:17 PM
I want to be able to make bracelets like this: http://www.freehand.com/jewelry/story_183.php  I haven't found any molds anywhere yet that I could use.  Does anyone have any idea where to look for them?

I'd also like to be able to make resin napkin rings.  Haven't found any molds for that, either.

One idea I came up with a while back was to make a resin clipboard.  I just haven't found any molds that would be big enough for that. Most are quite a few inches smaller.
15  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / River Stones Bowl on: October 19, 2006 05:14:10 PM
I'm not sure if this is the right spot for this.


Does anyone have any idea how that might be replicated? I know it's stones and resin.  I am going to start doing stuff with resin soon and I'd love for one of my project try to's/to do's to be something like this.
16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Finishing off corded necklaces on: October 16, 2006 11:35:44 AM
First off, I'd like to find out what everyone's favorite type of cord to use is.  The ones I'm talking about are the simple black (or any color) ones that hold one pendant.

 I've tried different kinds, from stretchy ones to rubber and I don't know what the best kind to use is.  Also, I'm having trouble finishing them off.  What do people use to keep them from fraying?  I have some of the fray glue-like stuff but don't know if that's best.  I use the crimps to smush the ends and then attach those to jump rings but it just doesn't look good to me.

17  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / I know nothing about kilns on: October 07, 2006 08:52:34 PM
I'd like to find out what kind of kilns our glass artists, here, have.

I'm really wanting to get into glass fusing - pendants for necklaces, bracelets, rings, pins.  I know kilns are really expensive so I'm wondering what the smallest one is that I could use for this sort of thing. I'd also love to be able to make slightly bigger pieces - for use and just for art.  But I know that'd probably be too expensive for me.

Is there a preferred size? a preferred style? Are the smaller kilns ones that I can put in my bedroom (which doubles as my art room)?
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Painting record bowls on: June 25, 2006 03:26:12 PM
I made my first ever record bowl earlier today.  I would love to be able to paint them, but don't know what kind of paint to use.

Anybody have any ideas?
19  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Adding to the melted bead craze - first project post on: June 21, 2006 07:48:47 PM
Here are a few pictures of some of the things I've been working on the past couple days. The flower one I'm not too thrilled with. But, I'm learning how to do this stuff so all in all - I'm happy with it. However, I do need to figure out a good way to get pictures of this stuff. I need a better set up and backdrop.

The fumes are pretty crappy.  Even with having the oven fan on high and opening a window or two.  I hope there are no lasting effects of breathing this stuff in because I am loving this process.  I'm going to make more as soon as I have money to go craft shopping again.

Let me know what you all think!


20  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Nylon Loops - need ideas on: June 03, 2006 03:00:10 PM
Hi, all Smiley

I know how to do basic stuff with the nylon loops - finger weaving bracelets, belts. That sort of thing. I got a little weaving loom because I'd like to be able to make placemats, something similar.

Any other ideas on what to do with this stuff?
