    The arts and crafts thread

    I hope this isn't a duplicate thread.

    Anyways my wife is on a huge Harry Potter kick and we have our place decorated with Harry Potter stuff for Halloween. Anyways I surprised her with a set of wands from the Harry Potter series, all made by hand and painted by my untalented ass!

    My g/f is making things with fabric and yarn. Take a look at her Instagram, she has some cool handbags for sale on Etsy, suitable for holding arts and crafts supplies. Plus gratuitous photos of Panda!

    I went HAM and made 15 envelopes, dyed them with coffee and hand made little wax seals for them. We don't have a fireplace so a vent had to do. Here's the extent of our decorations for the time being.

    Turns out all you need to make wax seals is a carved potato for the emboss, hot wax and red acrylic paint. Then you just dip the printer paper in coffee, let them dry and then go to town!

    Looking to make some extra rent money this month. Everything on my Etsy page ships free in the US and I ship everything with free old nu-metal stickers and promo items. Got some art prints as well as a few hand-made Zines. I'm REALLY proud of my Zines, especially the Modern Mixtape Zines, where I've made a bunch of fake soundtracks and such, and the third issue is a Covid Issue, with all playlists about the Pandemic, etc.

    Please check out my art, and feel free to throw me some dollars if you like any of it. None of the people I know here in KC really give a shit, so I'm just sitting on all this stuff.

    So quarantine has made me a bit restless so I decided to dust off my old camera and snap some shots of some Star Wars toys (while adding in some photoshop effects). This then prompted me to look into building dioramas and I've had mild success (sorry for the large photos)

    I learned quickly that certain types of spray paint dont mesh well with styrofoam and it ended up eating away at it. I tried to salvage this piece but ended up giving up as I was not happy with the look...


    I have since moved on to a bigger set and used acrylic paint this time around which yielded better results. It's still a work in progress but I like where it's going. Now I'm waiting on a 3D printed door to come in from eBay to help tie this all together.


    and finally, I watched a YouTube video on how to make fire/explosions for a diorama set and I must say I was pleased with my first attempt at making one - Made from cotton balls and a tea light. Here it is in action
