You could make him some flavored vodka for his bar. I have heard of skittle,candy cane,and other flavors of vodka given as gifts. All you need is vodka and the flavor that you are adding.

Also for his mug or tshirt I would think painting his xbox live name on them would be neat.
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Plastic Bag Jewelry on: March 25, 2011 12:46:01 PM
I would say use a heat gun. put it into a general ball shape and use sticks or something else to poke and mold it to your desires.
 if you did his method then as long as you use gloves and take it out with tongs and use the can, then you could use sticks or something to mold it or stick it into a plaster mold that is half a circle and add two of them together. i hope that somehow helps.
 but that video was very useful for the kind of things that i do.

Thanks! So far I've just used the kiln maker's brand. I'll have to explore other ones.

I forgot to mention that it is a microwave kiln and specifically says dont use a kiln wash. Thanks for your advice though.

The paper has a texture on both sides.

Sorry if these pics are huge and bad quality. I had to use my cell phone.

You can't see it too well but you can tell that there is a texture. it looks like little dots/squares.

I use a microwave kiln and all of my pieces end up having the design of kiln paper on the bottom. Is there a way to get rid of the design or make it not happen? I sand then with sandpaper but I seem to be getting nowhere. Any tips would be appreciated.

I fuse beer bottles in my microwave kiln. I just typically use one bottle as not to mix different types or different fusing times, which can lead to it cracking or shattering. I put it in for a few minutes let it cool, look at it and then decide if it needs more time or less. It is basically trial or error.

Thanks, Sweets & HSG! I am thinking about buying a tiny kiln that can handle small glass fusing, PMC, and ceramic pieces. Does anyone have any thoughts on what to look for or a kiln they love? I want to keep it under $300, if possible.

I'm not sure how it would work with PMC and ceramic pieces but for glass I use a fireworks (i believe it is) microwave kiln. I got a starter kit for under $100 (i believe it was around $70) at hobby lobby by using one of their 40% off coupons. But I recommend buying a pair of glass breaking pliers as the kit didnt come with one. the kit comes with glass, kiln paper, kiln, glass striker (i think that is what it is called), gloves and a few other things. I love mine and would definitely recommend it.

I even use mine to make pendants out of beer bottles.

Gorgeous. Your stuff is so inspiring.
Is there any chance that you didn't make this with a laser cutter? I want to learn this technique so badly now.
