22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / clothing? ya, well, I guess it is! first post here - maille shirt on: August 31, 2010 06:52:57 PM
hi everyone! i just have to say first that all of the things you all make are so amazingly beautiful!!! I sure wish I could sew :/  ...  i finally finished this the other day . . took about two months slowly on & off - made of bright & anodized aluminum as well as rubber rings for straps.

grrr, sorry for blurry pictures, but i apparently have a shaking problem!! had to take some without flash to show the sort of drape the maille has, scroll down for pics with flash)

with flash on = less blurry

and on white:

yay! so happy to have finally finished it!

24  COOKING / Dessert / Re: lego cake on: June 05, 2010 11:04:39 PM
thanks, guys! you can check out the betty crocker site for an actual video, though, it's not hard to figure out . . I never make cake so the video gave me some pointers on how to frost, crumb coat, and to put the cakes in the freezer
25  COOKING / Dessert / lego cake on: June 05, 2010 01:51:42 PM
I made this for my lego-obsessed four year old . . . very simple. unfortunatly I didn't have the right sized cake pans so i just made one sheet cake and cut it up. My first time crumb coating .  wow, what a difference that makes!!

just making sure marshmallows + icing is not poisonous, mom

(on a side note for this pic- yes, my dad's fridge does indeed have diamond plate and leather covering it)

and with the guys from all the lego sets he got for his birthday (snuck them out of the boxes before wrapping)

what a happy boy! the only thing i would do different would be to get gel colouring . . it took like the whole container of regular food colouring for each colour and they were still way lighter than i wanted
26  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / for my four-year old - lego themed on: April 30, 2010 10:45:28 PM

these are my latest transfers for my lego-crazed child:

the star wars one has the star wars logo on the back of it as well.

They all turned out so awesome and PERFECT . . ..
at first . . .
washed them and all the colours faded completely, the miner one peeled like crazy and the skeleton one ripped. It's not like i haven't done this before . . . I had some OLD avery papers from like 6 years ago, made him a storm trooper shirt a few months back, threw it in the wash AND dryer, paying no heed to temperature and the thing is still in good shape.
This last batch was made with brand new papers and I am thinking they changed the way they make them. I was very disappointed Sad

2 weeks of on-and-off work, savings of 25$, and a pinata you can actually smash . . . not a pull string one

just started with a toaster box, covered in plastic wrap to use as a form, paper mache'ed a ton of layers, cut up kool-aid singles tube for the dots, removed box, painted, and glued on tissue paper . . looks awesome!

smashy smashy!!!

pics of my awesome pinata getting the candy beat out of it . . .

k, you can stop! i think it's dead now . .

Thanks everyone!

Those are really cool.  I love the scales.  Do the rings come plain and you colour them?  I'm really impressed by the variety of designs.

the rings com coloured already - anodized aluminum. I buy from www.theringlord.com , though lots of other places sell rings online. I believe that the ring lord is the only place that sells scales though

It's been a WHILE . . i just got a new order of rings with a lot of different sizes, and I haven't stopped since (except to take pics)

first time scale bracelets . . they look super awesome (and no, they don't get caught on everything) . . and if you thought gypsy bracelets sounded cool, you have got to hear these!!

a new ring weave for me b/c I finally got the right sizes . . . half persian 3 in 1

right sizes for japanese 12 in 2 too:

a mini captive inverted round bracelet:

and experimenting with earrings and scales

thanks for looking!

thanks again everyone!

I will def. be trying the split. Thanks for the info.

I adore chain maille so much I purchased the Pepe jump ring maker so that I don't have to purchase rings anymore!!! Now I make them on command depending on what I want to make. Then the leftovers get placed in tiny plastic bags and "filed" away for next time! I have all my jewelry making friends ask me to make their's too! Def. a wise investment for me. Smiley

that is a good idea! maybe someday i will do the same, but right now, i don't know what all the metals are like yet, so it's nice to order a few different kinds in a few different sizes to see what everything is like. Really like the piece in your profile pic!
