Played with some poly to test out some ideas.
Little Chunky Babies.
A bit of tinted liquid poly over these pink guys. came out waaaaay too pink. I think I need to try liquid Kato, the liquid sculpey is way too milky. Though I wonder how they'll act mixed together? Hmmm...
Yeah iridescence and chunky facets, we've seen this before Marina... but wait!
Suddenly in the horizon appear the wackiest set of polys ever! Tensha decals for glass and ceramic beads used with polymer, made frosty with liquid poly and grungy with facets and paint. Oh yeah.
Look at this wack-a-doo set. I kinda love it. Would you use these together? There could be like thin chain between each element... a few white beads...
Oh, ok so see the one above that looks like it has a core? Well, that's actually an eyelet I used to cover up the fact that the hole was a mess. I'd used a toothpick to make holes on these and just decided to cook them on there and the really big beads the polymer was like infused into the wood and those damned toothpicks wouldn't come out so I had to re-drill the holes. Well, turns out a drill would much rather go through soft poly than stiff wood, thus causing destruction and other hilarity to ensue. Here:
The rest of today's stuff I think I've shown already but they're actually listed and shit now.
Playing with some of my polys that I kept for myself.
A Daytime Moon.
Aw man one of those green faceted ones would've been perfect in here but I hadn't made them yet when I made this oh well.
OK, so someone commented begging for a tute for these bangles but...
Aren't they self-evident? Like, cut strips, rivet together measuring to make sure they're the right total length for a bracelet... taking rivet overlap into account....
Sorta re-cut any that are too wildly mis-matched in width from whoever they're riveted to... sand, hammer if you want, oxidize and seal? And I got inexpensive rivets and they were kinda longish so I smooshed them apart in back with just pliers before hammering and then sanded to make sure it wasn't scratchy on the wrist. Eh? Questions? Mostly it's about collecting the tins I think, and I can't help you with that. Other than to say, "Go forth and collect tin my pretties!"
[Yeah so a while back someone asked which fanfiction I read. So ... yeah. Um, Sherlock? And it's super gayporn-y? And my parents read this blog so, um.... yeah. (I found some Thor/Loki ones that were SO pervy and hot, omg! But this is not the place! Inappropriate!! Lets just forget this paragraph ever happened.)]
Finally, can I re- post this gif because I think more people should have responded to the wonder that it actually is:
