3971  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Metal Dapping/Doming questions on: December 16, 2013 01:03:19 AM
I have been using soft, non ferrous metals like brass and copper for stamping, and working with, and use metal shears for it, usually 18-22 gauge.  Unfortunately if you put a large piece of into a dapping block, you may pucker the one side, and may have to go back and flatten it out again.

Maybe you didn't let it dry long enough - especially if it was a thick layer.  Have you tried other methods of image transfer onto wood - I found that using a citrus solvent (Citra Solv, or Orange TKO) works very well for me onto porous surfaces, or a blender pen, like Chartpak AD for smaller surfaces, and those are my preferred ways to transfer onto wood now.  When I used the gel mediums, I let it dry really well - but it is more labour intensive I find, personally.

OMG - you are the best sister, you resuscitated a terminal loved one!  He was loved to near death obviously! What a treasure!

I have been working on different techniques lately, and would love to expand my general arts/mixed media techniques in the new year; I would be interested.  Does it matter what the chosen medium is, or does it have to be paper/canvas?

Let me think on this.  I have been in a few past soups, but I was thinking of taking it easy on the swaps after Christmas to recoup some of my Christmas debt...

OK, I got home late last night and just about fell into bed, so I opened this morning, but that's OK, because I got to open two!!!!

I also found extras, so I am going to reward myself for my patience by leaving those to the end (I hate for gift opening to end).

Rockmygypsysoul - I love your wrapping.  It is brown paper with red striped twine - similar to mine, but I loved that she used a white snowflake stamping on her paper, and she made little stamped tags for hers too - there are sparkly white bone tags, and green tree tags, and I saw a red gingerman too.  I am trying not to rifle through the package too much so I don't break anything, or lose anything - she has it all so carefully packed!

Anyways, here are the pics.

Just opening the big box here...

One example of the tags...

Day 1

An adorable felt Leg Lamp ornament - DH's favourite Christmas movie is A Christmas Story, so he will love this on the tree.  He used to have a small Leg Lamp, but, go figure, it got broken Smiley

Day 2

This sweet little leaf bowl - I love fall leaves and this must have been off my pinterest.  I think it will be perfect on the window sill to hold the rings or watch when I have to take them off - a nice splash of colour.  It is so cute!

She also stamped a sentiment inside - you can just see it here

I am terribly intrigued by the other packages - some are quite large and light, and some are quite dense and heavy feeling...  This is like slow torture!

I received from gala_apples...

For my vintage Christmas theme

For my Christmas Story and snow themes - that first tag is definitely going on one of DH's gifts

For my Christmas cows theme - awesome that someone did go with that theme!

... and finally, my dogs theme - these will go on two bracelets for my SIL and niece - they love their dogs as much as we love ours Cheesy

Love 'em!  Thank you gala_apples!

I have been updating the list... and checking it twice... but in case I made any mistakes in the statuses, please check and let me know.

Are those ones tags in little envelopes?  Cute!

Loving everyone's tags - so cool to see the different styles.

Angielou1 - your request for a recycled theme stuck in my mind and a large number of my tags were made from recycled cardboard - like the smaller snowflake tags, or the die cut snowflake elements and the stamped clear acrylic tags in flygirl88's batch of cards - the cardboard came from glove boxes at work, or cereal boxes, and the acrylic from clear packaging I saved.

One project started.  Was going to start number two as well, but the materials I have are a bit old and brittle, so I need to get some new pieces of ________ next week after work.  Also found some ___________ in my stash that will work for a small as well.  So.... have the tea, and have started!
