11  I want to make these...Silicon Coated Teacups... in Discussion and Questions by EmotionalBaggage on: November 26, 2006 01:44:41 PM
I really really want to make these for a British friend of mine, cause they're perfect for him! I would just buy one, but $60 is WAY out of my price range.  Undecided They're coated in Silicon, and I thought maybe I could coat them in liquid latex, since I couldn't find silicon to buy anywhere. Any ideas?? Do you think that would work? I guess I'm just worried about putting it in the dish washer, and I'm not sure if liquid latex will come off. Or, maybe someone knows where I can get silicon? Thanks guys!

Here's the link for the info on the cups...

I actually couldn't find a stencil for the lips, so I had to make one. Here ya go!

After I made it the outlines on the white on the tongue and the top of the lips went away. So I just drew them in on my stencil before I cut them out. Sorry it's not bigger; that's just the size I needed, so that's the size it's saved on my computer as. Hope it helps. Smiley

13  My First Stenciling Project - Mick Jagger! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by EmotionalBaggage on: November 22, 2006 09:01:15 PM
So, I had a request for a book purse, she wanted Mick Jagger and the specific words. And I wanted to stencil it! Sooo here is my very first stencil project...

This is the front

And this is the back (these lips turned out SO good, I was so proud of myself!)

After I was done with paint, I covered the stencils with Plaid Dimensional Magic, and it made it look REALLY COOL!

Not only was this the first project, but I even made my own stencils for it, cause finding Mick Jagger (young) and surprisingly the Rolling Stones Lips was really hard! So, that's it, I just wanted to share with all yall. Smiley

14  Jewelry holder made from records - Hangs on the wall! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by EmotionalBaggage on: November 08, 2006 01:21:03 PM
After seeing the post about the earring holder made from an old record, I was truly inspired. Especially since I've got a ton of earrings that I never wear because I don't have a good holder for them. In order to maximize on space I wanted to make it hang on the wall. After much deliberating with my husband, and a few melted records that didn't stick together, I've finally finished my project! This one will be for a friend for her birthday.

I even added a small shelf for rings and bracelets. Sorry for the bad pic; records don't photograph so well close up.

I got the pieces to stay on the back by using JB Weld, that I got at Home Depot, that stuff rocks!  Grin On the back I had to drill a small slit for the nail to grab so it would stay on the wall properly. It's not the prettiest on the back. But you don't see that part so I figured it wasn't a big deal. Wink

Thanks for putting up with all my pics! This was a really fun project to do. I got to work with my Dremmel, and any craft that allows me to work with power tools is ok by me!

I need it to be a solid square on the back, think of sortof the back of a picture frame, or shadow box. Cause I need it to hang away from the wall so that the earring backs will have space to fit without hitting the wall.

I keep seeing a big ball of lights in my head. What would be fun...You could hit the thrift stores and look for hanging plant holders. Then, wrap away! I would say stay away from those ones that are wrapped in that nylon/polyester string (even though those are the coolest!) unless you want to remove it first, just because of the fire hazard.

You could get a couple of those round metal ones...

And put them together and then wrap it around and dangle a few off, I bet it'd be pretty. There are some really ornate ones out there. The work would practically be done for you. Smiley Good luck, I'd love to see what you come up with, you'll have to post pics!

17  Robot Love (a little IMG heavy sorry) in CHALLENGE 15 ENTRIES by EmotionalBaggage on: October 02, 2006 03:02:50 PM

Ok, so I was going to sew something, because that's my preferred medium, but I decided to go with origami instead.  Smiley This little guy is modular origami, meaning that he's several pieces folded separately and then held together with other folds. That's right, he's held together with nothing but folds.  Grin Well, with the exception of the heart on his chest, and the wire on his head, which are both held on with red glitter hot glue. Oh glitter hot glue is FUN!

This is what I started with...

For those of you counting, that's 29 little boxes. And I ended up having to paint the red ones, cause the smallest ones were too hard to make out of the thick red paper.

My bare bot...

gotta have a trial run to make sure he fits together correctly.

And my final piece. I hope you all enjoy him. I'm gonna put him into a shadow box and put him up on my wall.  Smiley

Take me to your lover....I mean, leader!  Grin

Alright.  Smiley I've done two of these, and I bought more books because they're addictive!

Here was my first one...

And this one I did half last night and half today. I started late last night and when I looked at the clock it was 2:30am! So I finished it today. lol
