This time it’s no tutorial for the necktie flower brooches, but I really liked them and want to see if I can make one.
It cant’ be soo hard ;-)
(The brooch on the photo is a fake, I didn’t want to cut my necktie ;-))
I always wanted to make moulds from plaster but I never quite knew how to. At craftster I found now a tutorial on how to make positive plaster moulds.
I’d like to begin casting the stone, so that I eventually have something to wrap, paint or bead.
Or I try it first with half a cork, I think that could be a nice pendant.
Here at unikatissima: Wrap a Rock (with lace or poymer clay or paint, embroider, felt, crochet, bead)
Sometimes I don’t want to simply string the beads but create some ‘ears’ on both sides like at the bead on the photo.
How to do this shows the bead wrapping technique tutorial where she does those ‘ears’.
Something else for my ever growing just-try-it-sometimes-list ;-)
Bead Wrapping Technique
If you need a boa quickly (with accessories!) the tutorial on how to make a 10 minute boa will be helpful.
Although I never needed a boa quickly up until now ;-))

I found at craftster a tutorial on how to make DIY Shrinky Dinks. I liked this (I don’t like to buy new materials, especially when I haven’t tried the technique yet).
Additionally I made a little research and found more (very similar) tutorials (see also Links below).
I really must try this, although I will wait until summer when I can easily ventilate the kitchen, because I’m always afraid of toxic gases.
Until then I can find out perhaps which of the odd plastic dishes I can use ;-)
