1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Burnt out light bulbs on: December 17, 2007 08:50:50 PM
I saw a guy who turned retired lightbulbs into sculptures of hot air balloons. He used the paint/liquid lead stuff people buy to make faux stained glass. The liquid lead made the seam lines on the balloon, then he painted each segment a different color. A tiny wire basket attached by strong wire and- Tada!

Looked cool. Love the other ideas here.

Way to go. I love lamps, and it's really cool that you got your dad into it.
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: golden 14th birthday in December on: October 14, 2007 04:29:25 PM

I'm 20, and for a friend's 21st birthday we did one of these minus the wine. We all dressed in our suits or nice shirts, fedoras, slinky dresses, etc. The guys had red roses on their plates when they arrived, and the girls had white ones. We ate a four course italian dinner while Frank Sinatra and similar music played in the background. Fake, terrible italian accents were attempted, and we all loved every minute of it.

I know that teenagers are sometimes a bit more uptight about acting enthusiastic about something so goofy, but it was the most fun party I've been to. Afterwards we all danced to pre-sixties music. The whole event lasted three or four hours.

I think that this is really neat. It is resourceful, environmentally friendly since you are recycling, and most of all, it doesn't seem obvious! The design asthetic (sp?) here is really great, and it isn't something I would imagine someone just thinking up off the top of their head. Touche'.

What kind of sealant did you put over it once you were done arranging the comics?

This is amazing. I would love to hear about the process.

I tried calling her to check on the intellectual properties and see if she had obtained permission, but there was no answer. I doubt she'll be responding to e-mail on the subject... Undecided
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Optimus shirt on: June 07, 2007 10:54:42 PM
I really wanted this topic to be about a shirt turning into a robot.

I like that the ink went over. It looks like a graffiti stencil now!

Your work is amazing.
So they are all just hard plastic? Do you make molds, then? I'm really curious about the process.
So nice to see another puppeteer. Welcome.
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Drills and Dremels on: June 03, 2007 08:47:12 PM
A dremel could even out the plastic, but it wouldn't give it the proper finish that the rest of the piece has, I don't think.

I used the multipro to cut pvc pipe for a sculpture, to cut a metal ironing board to make a shield, to shape wood for a decoration, drill holes in various things, cut coke cans, sculpt dry clay, cut and sand a wood cutout for my wall, take apart a tv, etc.

It's handy.
