3791  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Wicked Circus Altered Tin Swap CLOSED! S/O April 1 on: March 05, 2011 08:25:52 AM
Thanks for all the wonderful research and advice y'all!  I've been thinking this whole time that polymer clay would play a big part in realizing my vision (does it sound fancy when I say it that way?) and just last night as I was drifting off to sleep it occurred to me to be concerned about adhesion.  I found an old Altoid tin in my sock drawer, but still my instinct is painted clay for big parts of the exterior.

Last night I "engineered" and built the undercarriage for my wickedness!  This morning I see a trip out to the craft store for some poly-clay specific supplies!  Woo!

You would think the Altoids people would realize that many of their customers are only buying the candy to get the tins. Why mess with a good thing?

I thought the same thing, Wulf.  Not only are they  benefiting from people buying the mints just for the tin, they benefit from the "publicity" of people using their tins to make wondrous things.  Heck, even if you just used them as-is for storing or organizing things, they don't stack as nicely when embossed.  An un-embossed tin has to be cheaper to manufacture and ship, too.

I got to spend over an hour in my basement office rifling through my crap ephemera and supplies this afternoon!  When I finally reemerged upstairs, The ManFlesh says to me, "you get your tin done?"  "Pah!  I haven't even started-started!"  Silly non-crafter.

Eee!  I knew going out to a couple grocery stores would pay off in activity here!  I see that there's a PM in my inbox, but first I'm going to look at the partners in proper order.  And then that will be the last proper thing I do associated with this swap!  BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I've never swapped with anyone in this group and I honestly am in awe that I'm included.  I feel like the awkward kid sister who gets to hang around the periphery of her cool older sibling's friend group.

Sorry to keep you up tonight, MistressT.  Cheesy

Our puppy, Betty, will be relieved that she will not be taking the blame for tonight's lack of sleep.  Speaking of creepy circus and puppies, anyone know a gypsy that would want to buy a puppy?.   Shocked  Sigh.

I'm not a gypsy but I heart Betty and with as many dogs as we have in this house, we probably wouldn't even notice one more.

I'm planning on staying up late too. I want to work on some of my other swap goodies so I can free up time to focus on this one!!

Oh, I heart Betty to pieces, but... puppies!

Oh, I'm not staying up late... we're terribly elderly in our habits since the puppy and go to bed at 8:30 many nights!  I just didn't sleep very much last night and now that I'm all excited about partners and making....  ACK!  Squee!

I've read Geek Love  and it's a great book!  We have 2 copies, because neither The ManFlesh nor I are willing to part with our copies - the author is local, so that makes a bit of a difference.  Which reminds me I've not looked so forward to a Friday partnering since we started our romance!   Roll Eyes  

Sounds like most are down with vintage/old school/classic creepy circus, too.  This is such an impressive group (and I feel SOOOO honored and nervous to be included) that I'm up for letting my partner fulfill her or his vision with only a few suggestions.  I'm probably not going to sleep very well tonight (again).

Love "Something Wicked This way Comes!" The pic on this sign up is from an old movie poster for "Wicked."

I haven't actually seen the movie, but I read the book... like, uh, 26 years ago.  When I was, let's see... 4 years old.  Yup, that's it.  Maybe I should see the movie for more inspiration.  Hmmmm.

As for evil, I approve of evil as long as it doesn't involve the Pennywise/horror movie/psycho type clowns. I'm an old school circus girl.

Me, too.  I think Something Wicked This Way Comes-esque is about as horror-able as I go; there's just something creepy about the dingy and worn stuff and itinerant outsiders & ne'er-do-wells.

I've filled out the questionnaire and sent it to both organizers and I'm just about to bust!  I've been plotting, er... I mean "planning" since I first heard.  I sure hope my partner is okay with a shrine-type tin and doesn't get nightmares from the type of evil I'm hoping to build around.

I'd rather have a shrine myself, but mostly want my partner to follow the path of wickedness that beckons her/him.
