Thank you for telling us. This is Important.
You're telling me that your cat actually enjoys wearing clothes?
I made my own clay stuff today!!
And then made 1/2 shitty statues for christmas
Will post pictures in a bit, when I take them.
The statue is of Lilith from Binding of Isaac Rebirth,
Well, it will be.
I am going to attempt shoving yarn in the holes I poked in her head, for her hair
taking a small piece of fabraic and tying it around her head for the blindfold
everything else (sans the blood on the blindfold) will be painted beforehand
rn the statue part is drying though
I made a ton of wire wrapped tourmaline pendants :D
The clay statue as promised! (however only upainted version. currently it also has some shitty hair and is painted)
Okaaay and space project I did
Spoiler: When I set it up at home
I am still needed to send the pictures my teachertook of it AT the fair thing to my computer, so I will be back. (again)
That looks rad! It's obvious that you put a ton of work into it.
You know what? I'm linking @Void and I's disaster table in here, just because I can.
#an attempt was made
that poor bastard table...
I looks too low to be a table. Might make a decent bookcase or bench though :P
solution: put it on another diminutive table.
(STACKING IS JUST A WEAK TACTIC TO MAKE SMALL TABLES TALLER)
*crashes into thread with Christmas present pictures*
Spoiler: Lilith (Binding of Isaac) Statue
How I did her hair (double sided tape, yarn. when the tape started un sticking, I used red paint as glue)
Spoiler: Zergling Statue (Starcraft? (cartooned starcraft show on youtube)
before I added eyes and mouth front
angle (also this picture is funny cause my camera focused mostly on lilith in the background, instead of the zergling)
Babby's first (theoretically successful) attempt at wire-wrapping!
Plus a US dime for scale:
Stainless steel wire and... some kind of pearl bought at a renfaire. I wanna say freshwater but I honestly can't remember.
I was gonna make some gold-and-citrine stuff too but noooo the gold beading wire's too thin and flimsy to hold onto the little bitty stones I've got... *plots a new trip to the craft store*
That's really pretty!
My mind just went on a free association crafting journey and now I'm imagining kind of...gnarled wooden pencils with a wire-wrapped pearl like that on top. Wizard's staff pencil. I bet those would kill on Etsy.
I actually have two pearls that I found in an oyster once and I kind of want to do something with them so they're not just sitting in a box forever. They're really small but you can still tell they're pearls. Any suggestions?
Ooooh yes, I like that idea :o different woods and gems for different aesthetics...
Dangit, I'm still getting the hang of this jewelry thing, I don't need to take on woodworking too :P (even if my sister would love the hypothetical staff-pencil...)
@Bel Capricorn, earrings maybe? Or a matched set of something (rings, pendants, etc)? I still don't know what I'm gonna do with the pendant I just made :P
Unfortunately I don't have my ears pierced and I don't really want to get them pierced. A ring or a pendant might work, though.
*comes back late with more suggestions* Depending on budget and aesthetic you could maybe look at pearl cages too? (Linked image was the first I found that showed both "open" and "closed" positions, there are plenty of other designs that don't involve ridiculously expensive diamond embellishments :P) Not sure how you'd go about making one, but I'm sure there are places to buy empty ones that a thirty-second Google search didn't turn up :P they make for nice pendants and bracelet charms, and depending on the size of your pearls you might be able to fit both into one cage.
That looks worth a try, thank you.
