13  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Painting Converse...?/ Other ways of designing Chucks! on: August 31, 2008 12:24:20 AM
 I have searced and searched this thread for different techniques, different ways of using all kinds of mediums, and brands of products, along with tutorials on how to paint Converse shoes....alas I can't find a set way or any type of solid info. I figured there would at least be some sort of thread listing the ways to do this but there isn't one...yet....so I post this question to my fellow artiste's out there who paint their Chucks..

How do you paint your Converses?
What types of products do you use, what brand names, and where do you purchase them?
How do you use them on the shoes aka mini tute?

SOOO many ppl do this in all kinds of different ways lets share them all and see how they work!

Second part!!

I love the idea of decorating the Conv. with other types of mediums, ie fabrics or patches, decoupage, stencils etc. etc.


What kinds of other mediums do YOU design your Chucks with?
How do you apply these items to your shoes? IE Do you iron, sew, glue etc etc?
What supplies did you use and could you explain the process....tute?

Thanks so much can't wait to see how big this gets!! YAY!!  Grin
14  COOKING / Dessert / Re: easy cherry pie on: June 04, 2008 08:44:19 AM
Jeesh this looks yummy, I made a cherry tart kinda like this one. But so not homemade lol.
I did the pie crust in a large pyrex glass dish, filled it with cherry pie filling and placed another pie crust over it, baked it. So simple but my family loved it, Especially my grandpa, which surprised me cuz I was a lil dissapointed I love things to be sweet and it was kinda tart. Happy memory of my granpa before he passed. : ) Thanks for reminding me : )

I dunno if anyone on here has seen these but when you buy false lashes, some of them come in these little black and clear plastic cases that close similar to a compact.

Anyway after I used all my individual lashes I took out the plastic that was holding the lashes and realized that the case they come in can double as a palette. So I started thinking. I have a metal makeup spatula from my makeup class and used that with some alcohol to pry out the metal tins inside other eyeshadow compacts, and placed the makeup in the empty eyelash case.

 I took some of my L'oreal HIP shadows out-the kind that comes with two colors in one case- and placed them in one of my plastic lash cases.
Usually the bottom on the pan of shadow was sticky enough to adhere to the plastic case. But I didn't stop there. I kinda went crazy. I had some old lipglosses that my sister wanted and that I was ready to toss just so I could keep the case it came in. She insisted so I melted these down and poured them into the HIP compact. - I did this with other containers that used to have shadow in them before I pried them out. I also took my Benefit Lemonade compact and scraped the makeup out of that and another concealer and placed these two in one of my empty HIP compacts.

It was alot of work but now most of my shadows are in a few cases and I have a couple lipsticks in a new clear compact where my old shadows were.

Mini Tut- Shadow
Find an eyeshadow that you want to place into a palette. You're going to remove the metal pan the shadow comes in from the plastic holder its in and put it in another container.
Usually no matter what shape the metal pan is that holds the powder shadow, there is some form of wiggle room between the pan and the plastic case the shadow comes in, so I pried my metal spatula in a slightly open spot ( an area that wasn't right up against the plastic container) and then used an eye dropper that had alcohol in it ( I used an old visine bottle, with the label removed so as not to confuse what was in it)to put a few drops of alcohol in the open spot. This might get the shadow wet so be careful not to scrape the shadow. After a few minutes the glue underneath the pan starts to get loose with the alcohol and that makes it easier to use the spatula to pry the shadow out. I just used a little pressure and the pans popped out. When you have the free pan of shadow you can place it in any empty container, an old cd case, an altoids tin or my preference an empty lash case. You might need some super glue if the back of the pan isn't sticky enough, or you can glue magnets to the empty container and to your shadow pans so you can mix and match the shadows.
-Lipstick/gloss- I find that this will only work with gloss that is waxy/wax based, liquid gloss like the kind in the squeeze tubes will not work because they don't set up aka get hard enough to stay in a different container=runny all over the place in your purse yuck.- if you found something that works though then by all means try it.

 I used my spatula to scrape out the gloss or the lipstick. You can even use the spatula to scrape the very bottom of the lipstick out, that bit that's left over when the top part is all used up.Put it into a METAL (seriously metal only) measuring spoon, ( measuring spoons have deeper wells than regular spoons = less mess trust me ) and placed the spoon over a candle flame- not too close. When it was melted I poured the gloss into the empty container. Make sure your container is deep or big enough to hold all the lip product, if not it will run over and you'll have wasted product that's melty all over the place. ( again trust me)
Hope this helps!-J Grin

18  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Which one has a better market on Ebay? on: March 08, 2008 05:59:24 PM
I would search these things on e-bay first to see who's selling and what it looks like  and how much they've sold. Make a few things that are easy like an easy re vamp and a dress you made for yourself and see how it goes. If there isn't much of a market then you can recollect your thoughts and try again a different way.
19  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: yet another boring pricing question... on: March 08, 2008 05:43:37 PM
Just by looks alone and I'm not in the UK so my idea of money is diff. Your product is amazing and looks expensive. If your price is low people will think its a cheap product if its expensive they'll think its a quality prod.- which I'm sure it is. I don't know the conversion for dollars to pounds however I would expect to pay at least 50-75 for pants alone and 70-100+ for the shirt. Remember aside from all your hard work and materials and time plus expertise, these items are CUSTOM MADE! and made VERY WELL I might add. I they can't afford it they can go elsewhere.

I saw some really cute little makeup bags and makeup compacts with eye and lip color with Mark cosmetics through AVON, I know its not professional but I want to keep it on their level so they don't get intimidated. Also if they like the makeup they can buy more through me however I dunno how professional that would be with this whole set up. I would use their makeup and I've wanted to for a while I've just not had the money to buy through a catalog since I can buy equally cool stuff at the mall or the drugstore. Although I don't think it should be too much of a problem because part of the idea to these parties is that Anyone can do their makeup great with Any kind of budget. Any thoughts on that?
