Oh my CRAFT!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

inspired by the crap i make in my spare time- often crazy, unusual and down right weird, the things on here are usually made for a purpose- either for my own use or for my display for my work. and others are projects i hope to complete or i think are really rad.

I currently work full time with a company that sells art products. I've finished process photography at tafe & half-completed a diploma of graphic design. i have taken many short-courses including glass bead design, silver jewellery, silver metal clay and polymer clay and folk art.

happy crafting.. and shiz!

So my dad found this hand made wooden doll house at the thrift store a couple weeks a go and I think I will make this into a little project. It needs a bit of tlc especially on the inside. I’m not totally sure what I want to do with it though, in terms of how I want it to look anyway. So suggestions are welcomed :)  It has a vintage feel to it and I would like to keep that feel.

Undersized Urbanite Update

So, I’ve actually been working on it.  I’ve tried my hand at doing paperclay stone and it turned out ok.  You can see my efforts above.  I still need to clean it up a bit and paint it, but I’m pretty satisfied and liked working with the paperclay for the most part.  There was a lot of trial and error and some things I would do differently next time, but I think paperclay is going into my repertoire.

The problem I have now is that I’m unsure what to do with the roof.  I’m considering a couple options:

1. More Paperclay!

I’d eventually like to try making a roof in paperclay like this Rik Pierce creation for Sally Wallace.

Pros:  Still have a lot of paperclay left.

Cons:  More trial and error, may be more time consuming.

2.  Traditional wooden shingles

Pros:  I already have a bag and I can paint to look like slate.

Cons:  Very time consuming.

3.  A Moss Roof

Pros:  Quick and easy to do.  Already have some bags of moss.

Cons:  Not sure how it will hold up over time.  Not entirely sold on how it looks either.

Opinions and suggestions welcome!  So what do you all think?
