wow!!! so many responses! thank you everyone for all your kind words! yay i am so glad everyone lieks them iw as thinking of making mroe and selling them but wasn't sure if was the only one who wanted sparkly sandwiches hanging from my neck.
i did a scroll through and i think i got everyones questions answered...
iampoison - nope they are actually surprising light and pretty durable
almostascone - i am thinking about it they actually look alot better in real life and whenever i pull them out people go nuts for them. they are really really hard to make - not so much the bling but the construction of the containers. if i can streamline it a bit you expect to see them on etsy soon
(mllejessy - the sandwich one will probably be the first to be made for etsy)
kaleesi - styrene (i'm probably spelling it wrong) is a plastic commonly used for models - liek architects make models with it and alot of train set stuff. it's pretty easy to use but it take a litlte getting used to, you jsut score it with an xacto and fold and it snaps pretty perfectly. and instead of glue you use this chemical called methelyne chloride in a syringe bottle and you sort of weld the corners together - like when using plexiglass. it's very easy for making rectangular things - very much a pain in the ass for curves (especially banana curves)
i did this project almost a year ago for my portfolio - and since i am thinking of selling them i will have to try them again - so i will try post a tut, if anyone has the patience to deal with the styrene and all the glue they have my blessing to make their own as long as they promise not to sell them
dexterchickk - it was for my senior design portfolio for the sva in nyc. i was a graphic design major (though as you can see i totally strayed from that)
you can see the most of my senior portfolio at www.boxofparts.com
i never got around to putting everything up though
misa - those are true to scale and that was a real can of soda, banana and pb sandwich. i will admit though that getting the banana in and out of the container is not really possible without it being cut in half whihc is kinda lame - but i was really more interested in the way the banana looked graphically. besides you could always fill it with banana runts
they look small becasue of the picture and the fact that my very large model friend chris if wearing them.
yay everyone thank you so much - i will get to trying to remake them and let you know how i did it.
