It's called a ladder. :)
That's far more complicated/uses more materials than any other cuff of this variety. Though it looks kind of cool with the embroidery string.
Uh. Then how'd you make it?
He looks like an old man...I think you might've over-emphasized with some of his facial lines.
I just want to correct you- they are not called gauges. The gauge is only the size. I assume you're making plugs (and using silicone tunnels for the molds), just be super careful with stuff like that- resin can be incredibly toxic, especially for your ears.
But I really do think that's an AWESOME idea. C: Just be careful.
...Cleaning solvent won't stop an infection if you stick something that dirty in your ear, especially if it's too large and you stretch the hole. You end up with micro-tears in your skin, and...oooh it just makes me shudder. >.< The only way to get something like that sterile is to autoclave it- no amount of boiling or alcohol or bleach is going to sterilize a paperclip.
Just wanted to let you know that I did a tutorial on the 3D mushroom, and it's up!
Hey, I'll make a tutorial for the mushroom tonight, and I'll let you know when it's up! ;3
Yes, it will wash out in the wash- I used to have a pair of jeans that a bunch of my friends had signed with sharpies and the like- I no longer have them because I washed them too frequently.
The anatomy is....really, really frightening. I like the shading though.
Hey, just so you know, I saw your comment on the Kool Aid hair dying project, and no, it's actually NOT damaging to your hair. At least, no more than taking a hot shower is.
It's much less damaging than something like bleaching, or even just dying, your hair, plus, it's not a permanent thing (and one other thing, most of the 'weird' dyes for hair are essentially just ink, with no ammonia or seriously damaging chemicals).
You're welcome! And thank you, very much. C:
I would love a how-to on this...it's ADORABLE. C:
I think we're confused because none of these are really crafts. I don't mean to be mean but...they're kinda just things that you can google and then copy/paste onto anything. They're just...not really crafts. Is all. Again, not trying to be mean. Just...confused.
Which one would you like a tutorial for? C:
No, Mi.ezekatze. You are not.
Ahh, they're so bright and happy! I never even thought about doing this, but now I have ideas for kandi. :3
So THAT'S why I designed my first tattoo?
And no, it wasn't the silly stars, those were an incredibly old idea to cover up a scar, and they aren't going to happen. It's not as if that's an incredibly popular project anyways :P. I'm not an idiot, sir or madam, I just know my tattoo artist well. I couldn't have described precisely what I wanted at the time to him, as I wanted a specific design that I ended up drawing out. If a person wants a specific thing on their body, or even have an idea that they want to share with their tattoo artist and let said tattoo artist improve upon it, and they happen to have the capability to draw, why not let them?
Thanks for your thoughts, but they were really rude, and it seems as though you signed up simply to post on that.
This pleases me a great deal. I love Dexter. <3
Oh my goodness, that's the cutest little tail ever! :3 Could you make a how-to for just the tail?
Thanks for faving my Christmas Eyeshadow. :3
:) They're adorable! Nicely done. ^^
It's...really amazing to see a true artistic process put into the form of a tutorial.
I love it!
Thanks for faving my transformers kandi. ^^
No more awkward than a swimsuit!
I think they're adorable.
This is absolutely awesome.
You see Freddy Kreuger sometimes on Halloween, but never any victims. :3
This is really creative. Nice job!
:/ Just saying, I have a tutorial up already for 3D stars...the method is a little different...but still...
Oh my goodness! <3 There are so many possibilities!! I'm so excited about getting my nose repierced now.
Just a side note, this should only be used for well-healed piercings!
But oh my goodness this is so adorable. I can't wait to get my nostril repierced. <3
You can use whatever words you like, doesn't have to be the 'f' word. I just happen to already be a vulgar person.
The green looks a little...flat. Try using a couple of different shades next time. =) But otherwise, nice use of textures.
So...what is it? Sea salt and water?
Not really all that 'steampunk' unless it's added in with an outfit. >.>
But it is really cute!
It's...got two elements directly taken from Emilie Autumn's usual makeup style. The lips and the heart below the eye (though I've never seen anybody pull it off well but her).
The colors don't look too great all together. =/ Sorry.
This seems to just be a doll-maker. O.o I'm not sure that that really qualifies as a craft.
Oh wow. I've been wanting a pillow pet for forever! If you could make a tutorial, that would be absolutely AMAZING. <3
Oh my goodness, please make a how to! I've been trying to find a good tutorial for pants like these for ages, and I can't seem to find any.
I just love them!
Haha, it sounds like you mixed up the two words "riff raff" and "bric-a-brac" a little...rick rack is "a flat narrow braid woven in zig zag form".
Though I do really like this idea! It's very cute, especially if you're like me and you end up with tons of miscellaneous things that don't match anything else.
Actually yes! Yes I was. I read the first few Anita Blake books before I read Twilight.
I've actually seen stickers that say "Anita Does It Better", and they make me happy. :3
You misspelled 'gypsy'...but I do love the idea! I remember wearing necklaces on my head when I was young, because I didn't know how to clasp them around my neck. So I just wore them around on my head.
But now I have to find a necklace similar to that. =)
I'm just curious: What are these made from?
Yay! =) Thanks for getting back to me on that!
Haha. I'll make a tut for the big star. No promises on it being pretty though!
These are just adorable. ^^ As soon as I figure out how to knit again, I'll be trying to make some for myself.
Ahw, thanks. =3 It does take patience, but just try it some time! It's easy to pick up and put down whenever you want.
I'll actually probably end up making a simple one for the sake of not being harassed by parents who want to protect 'precious innocent eyes'.
Seeing as my mother just invested in a screen printing machine, I feel like it'll be a lot easier.
Just don't sell anymore...it totally goes against the meaning of kandi (yeah, I'm one of those morons who still believes PLUR and friendship still exist x_x).
You...sold kandi? The first 3D you made?
That makes me really sad.
I've read the series, and I bash it pretty much daily.
I've said it a million times, and I will say it again: Bella is an empty shell for just about any female to squeeze herself into, so of course it's easy to relate to.
SMeyer shoved those books full of prose more purple than a strangled violet for her own fantasy purposes.
I hate the books, I hate the movies, and I hate the rabid fans who attack others because they DON'T like the books. Plus, the BK Eclipse Game deal, where they brought in Twilight fans for that commercial...I'd rather shoot myself than watch it again, because those girls have fooled themselves into believing that Edward and Jacob are real characters.
Which is completely pathetic.
On the bright side, Twilight will never be remembered like the traditional classics. Twenty years from now, and I'll never hear another thing about it.
I'm not sure about a wearable one, since you tie the center shut. Hmm...but I think it's 9 through every fifth or fourth bead. Or seven. x_x You may want to try some trial and error, I forgot how to do the math for that one.
I believe that's how I did it!
Yes, yes it is.
Though I suppose since it's art for the non-artist, it's okay for it to not be original or artistic or creative.
T-T That doesn't seem very original or artistic at all...
I do think the proposal tattoo is very sweet, and probably a much better thing than getting a name tattooed on you (which I've always thought to be ridiculous and a bad idea, mostly because the majority of people who get names tattooed on them end up splitting up). And the question mark is my favorite.
Oh my goodness that is absolutely adorable. Would you consider posting a tutorial?
I don't care if he is working on himself, he should be wearing gloves. And working at home is totally unsanitary unless he has a studio attached. >.<
These are so much better than a majority of the hoodie-ears I've seen!
Absolutely adorable. I'll probably be doing this sometime. =)
I'll post a how-to tomorrow! It probably won't look as nifty for the tutorial though, cause I didn't take pictures while I was going through the process.
You're so welcome!
My mom adores rainsticks, so I figured I could try my hand at making one for her some time. ^^
And good luck making kandi! It's actually really fun, and something interesting to do with spare time. =)
Apple butter is the most amazing delicious stuff EVER.
And this just sounds amazingly good.
Most highlighters actually do glow in blacklight...just depends on what they're on.
And no, it's not toxic. It's like drawing on yourself with a Sharpie. Everyone tells you it's toxic, but it's not. Not unless you pour a bunch of the ink into an open wound, anyways. And you can wash highlighter off really really easily.
Regardless of all that information, I love the tiger-stripes kinda thing you did on your legs, it looks really nifty. ^-^ I may do this for the next rave I go to.
I don't care what anyone says, I think these are absolutely awesome.
It's just like using a cloth diaper for a baby (which is just as, if not more, helpful to the environment). Thank you for posting a tutorial!
I love stuff like this. You did a lovely job with it. =) The holder for the test tube looks like it should hold it over a bunsen burner...hmm...I may need to get my hands on one of those.
Could you maybe possibly post a how to? =)
I'd use it as a backback too! That's adorable. =)
Oh yeah, I've done that for simple things like links on jewelry, but I can't find wire that's thick enough or the right colors unless I go out of town to another craft store, unfortunately. =/
I've tried about eighteen-hundred times. And every time I try it makes me want to strangle myself with my string. It's so frustrating. x_x
I'm just wondering where the black dot in the middle of his forehead comes from. xP
Otherwise, he's cute, and I've seen that pattern many a time.
This makes both myself and my boyfriend sad. We love comic books, and his favorite is Watchmen. >.<
Next time try photocopying them! It'll save you a comic book. =)
I know! I've been wanting to try my hand at it for a couple of years, but I've yet to get my hands on any rings. I don't do much online purchasing, and I've only found one kit for making chainmaille. And then I lost the necklace I made from it. >.<
This is absolutely adorable. =)
I never have read it, but I know that it's more of a young-adult series (like Twilight, despite 40-year-old women reading it and then drowning themselves in their love of sparkly vampires and gigantic wolves [read: shapeshifters, not werewolves]), and I just can't get into many young-adult books anymore. Unless they're about drugs (Smack and Crank, for instance) or are incredibly deep (Go Ask Alice and Cut). Or they have to do with Alice in Wonderland.
I prefer Anne Rice's vampire novels and Laurell K. Hamilton. =)
I prefer functional welding goggles (with changeable lenses!) that can be worn as a headband, but this (these? xP) are pretty cute!
Nice job. =)
I understood tiny bit of it, for I took German in high school!
But onto the creation- I love chainmaille, especially earrings, and these are absolutely lovely. Though I think I'd have to go for my favorite colors rather than the US's colors (I don't like blue that much xP).
And a good way to get anger out. I used to stab pillows.
I figured it was one of those that they sell at crafty stores. I still think it's cute. <3
They're pendants, obviously.
No big thing, I love 'em! =)
I love seahorses, and this is absolutely adorable. =)
Yep. Actually I have a 3D star tutorial.
Cute combination idea.
I agree with everyone else asking for a how-to! That is ADORABLE!
I would get that tattooed on me. Most definitely.
That's gorgeous. =)
That's adorable. I just wish it wouldn't look awful on me. =P
But it's a spectacular gift idea for some of the people I know.
Those are adorable. I used to hate Pachirisu, but it's just too cute. It'd be great if you gave us a how to, though! =3
I have a tut for stars- you just have to use more beads for it!
A how-to would be great! I love the jewels/balls/those round red things. Absolutely adorable.
That'd be peyote stitch, right? =) I wish I could make the peyote stitch work.
That's adorable, and you're right...PLUR isn't dead. Not yet. ^^
I hope you post a how to or something. Because that's epic. =)
You should most definitely post up a how to. That looks great. ^^
I just wanna know how you made the one in picture 12. o.o It's really nifty <3
That's absolutely gorgeous. Very nice. ^^
Actually, the books are written VERY poorly. They are written as if a 13-year-old girl had come up with the idea. But no no, it's a 30-something year old woman. She has no style or true technique to writing. If you find some bad fan-fiction online about vampires and chicks, you're pretty much reading Twilight anyways.
Those are pony beads; trust me, they probably won't sell, as you can buy a big huge bag of them for under $5.
Plus, I make a lot of kandi (using pony beads), and it upsets me when I see it being sold, as it's supposed to represent friendship, not money. So I donno how many people in your area know what kandi is, but you might end up irking a few people.
This is absolutely awesome.
I don't mind at all, just give me credit ^^. And I definitely remember your cult from VF. =)
Not exactly gothic lolita...and definitely not an every day thing. But uhm, nice I guess.
Is there any way you could make this into a how-to? That's really awesome.
A tutorial would be awesome! =D
I love you.
I've seen tons and tons and tons of "EDWARD!" shirts here.
But none that proclaim that real vampires don't sparkle, or anything even remotely anti-Twilight.
Absolutely gorgeous. I must say, I am jealous.
Quite the awesome jacket. =)
I <3 bubble tea, so I <3 you and your tutorial by association. =)
Ooh, your decorating skills are much better than mine, and I did the same thing for the lettering.
Try Etsy! If you change what you're searching for to 'Supplies', and type in gears, you'll find some pretty cheap destash from people who've taken apart clocks and watches and things!
These are gorgeous. ^^
That's really adorable. ^^ I love cherry blossoms myself. Plus, I have a little bitty 'cabinet' that I painted a long time ago; looks like I'll be sanding that down and repainting!
Hooray for Totoro (and Totoro shirts ^^)!
I love love love Tamagotchi! This is adorable.
Oh my goodness they're so CUTE!
Ahw, thanks! ^^
Sure! Honestly, I learned from KT, but...
Most of the people on KandiTrade are awfully mean and snippy with kids who're new to making stuff. =/
I'd be happy to do a tutorial for ya!
Ahw, thanks. ^^
Geeze...I love Lewis Carrol, but I never really thought to have a little themed tea-party for his birthday...
What an awesome idea. ^^
You're welcome, and thanks! ^^
I love it. So very awesome. ^^
These cookies are delicious...my mom makes them for me, I'll be making these for my friends soon. ^-^
I made earrings out of CDs once...except I never used a microwave, and I used a candle, a pair of normal scissors, and a hammer and thin nail for holes. I never thought to put them in the oven or boil them...that's helpful!
That is completely awesome. I only just learned a few days ago how to attach them into my hair. ^^
I love Daft Punk. This is awesome. ^^
If they happen to sell actual wool roving at your craft store...I'm jealous. Soooo jealous. And..mine smell less like wool, and more like sweat and beer. Wore them to a Mindless Self Indulgence show. Not a good idea. Place was packed FULL, and there's two floors...so I got beer thrown on me.
Aww. It's so adorable! I think I'm going to make one of these for my mother's birthday this weekend. ^^
Yep, I make them as falls rather than extensions because I'm lazy. ^^
