As a passionate argyle and scooter fan, all I can say is this ROCKS! Grin

Could you elaborate a bit more on vinyl process, or recommend a good tute?

Im very lucky, in that we have a vinyl plotter (the cutting machine) at work we use to dress up our work vehicles. It's more equipment than most people will have access to. The idea is similar to that of the Cricket. The vinyl is like this.http://www.beacongraphics.com/supplies/avery/a9-series-opaque.html

And the plotter is like this: http://www.beacongraphics.com/equipment/gx-24.html

However, with some vinyl, an exacto, and enough patience anyone could get the same results.

I wanted you to know you inspired me to give fondant a go.

Last night I made the cakes and the marshmallow fondant. Tonight I put it all together and am surprised by how simple everything was. Sticky, but simple. And it tastes good.

Do you know why I got those strange bubble looking things that show in the picture of the cake as a whole? They weren't there as I was rolling, They showed up several minutes after I put them on the cake. It's not condensation.

Anyway, thanks for posting your lovely cake and finally convincing me to give it a try. Smiley

Thank you for posting your fondant recipe. I've been looking for a trusted one, there's so many out there and I didn't know what to try. Your cake looks so perfect.

This is my new 2009 Honda Metropolian scooter. I just got it this week and I love it. The material is cut vinyl that I designed and cut with a vinyl graphics program. The white/gray is reflective and shines very brightly in the right light.

After much deliberation, this is the design I settled on. But if I get bored with it, I'll pull it off in a few months and try a new look.

Knitwit, holla!  Do you like the one on the mirror? I've been asked many times what it's name is, I didn't know it needed a name. Maude? Winnie Cooper? Fembot?new

I've never seen anything quite like this in clay. It looks like it's carved from wood. cool.

Looks to me like you got them really close to being the same size. Nice job.
27  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Octopus, Whale, Mask and More on: December 11, 2009 09:57:42 AM
I took a pottery and ceramics class this semester. Here are some of my favorite pieces.

I didn't know if the octopus would make it with it's spindly arms and big heavy head. But there she is. I'm going to put in the 50 gallon fish tank at work. The little green container in the above picture is my very favorite project.

The whale is a teapot. And those are it's matching teacups. The bowl is version 2.0. An earlier one was picked up by a fellow student and dropped. *oops*

This mask freaks out my husband. He held it at arms length for a while.... so I hung it on the wall by the front door. The coil pot is 12" tall. Both of these have stain under the glaze.

RAKU!! Whoa, that was so much fun. The middle one turned out the best. The gray parts are unglazed, the gray is from the smoke getting into the clay.

I think I'm going to take this class again in January. I'm not a student anymore, this is just for fun nowadays. I hope you enjoyed seeing them.  Smiley

After seeing yours I used this tute too. Yours looked so good and mine turned out good too....except I hemmed it too short. It doesn't look as cute as yours so I'll have to figure out what to do to cuten it up. Bottom ruffle? No maybe a whole 'nother tier underneath...

I really like this pattern and am in search of my next project.... Have you found an affordable yarn to use?

I finished this top last night. After having set it aside for a month, it only took me 2 hours to finish it. I'll post pics later today. If anyone else made one, I'd love to see it. I may start another one, if I can find some affordable yarn.
