1  Remote Controlled Cloud Light in Completed Projects by dablondeemu on: January 10, 2013 09:08:19 PM
This is a project I created for a Digital Art and Installations class, but I gave it to my little brother for Christmas.   The class covered basics of several types of programming, and our projects were meant to be an interactive cross between art and technology.  This was a fun and easy project with really impressive results (if I do say so my self).  The same technology could be applied to many different types of types of projects.  The technology is very easily altered as well, for example, I was considering using a distance sensor or a light sensor.  I had everything on hand, so it cost nothing.

It does several different weather functions, and each color light is also individuality controllable, to create any combination.

Sorry the photos don't really do it justice! Check out the video to see it in action:

5  Beach Glass Sun Catchers and Pendents (image intense) in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by dablondeemu on: July 29, 2011 03:13:13 AM
A big thank you to the craftster moderators for the feature for July and August (for my other post) on the Glass board  Grin Grin Grin

and for this :]


First of a series of what I can feel is going to be a very long craft addition for me. All of them are wire and beach glass some of them required drilling through the glass.

Also, I want to be able to photograph the translucency of the glass with the light showing through, but cant seem to manage to show it,it comes out totally back lit. Any hints? I'm new to photography, just got a DSLR camera, so Im learning...

The first piece I made, freestanding mermaid statue

Some sail boat pendents or ornaments

Little Mermaids 1 and 2

A Big Sail Boat

SAIL sun catcher

A sun catcher "Love is sandy toes and salty kisses"
any one have any idea where thats from? I know I read it somewhere...

thanks for looking :]

The cupcakes are also rainbow layered  Cheesy There are bunnies, chicks, eggs, flowers, ladybugs and a bee. My littles cousins loved them!
I used powered sugar instead of icing sugar, any one know if that makes a difference?
