Most of you know me, i am NOT a craftsy person. not voluntarily at least. but a dear friend of mine's birthday was this Wednesday, and i realized that on Saturday
AHHHH. i had no money, but i knew i had to do something. i knew he liked Greek gods, and i wanted to make him a necklace with Apollo on it.... obviously didn't happen quite the way i planned. but i am very pleased with this result. i took a regular key, painted it, then embossed (and burned myself in the process) it. (embossed is the gold stuff. it starts off as powder, then you heat it up (hence the burning) and then it turns molten and HOT) i wrote the poem, and i'm hoping he'll like it....
so anyways, 5 hours and at least 5 burns later: WALA!! i also made/painted and embossed a glass jar with wire all over it, with his name in greek on the tag (the only greek thing on there -_-" *sigh*) haha anyways it was a lot of fun, and i'm thinking of doing similar things like this for Christmas. WITHOUT the embossing.
anyways, thats what i did today -_- now i need to go and put burning cream on my fingers... yeah. do not try and hold a metal key while trying to emboss something. DOES NOT WORK.
Poem: BY ME. DO NOT USE IT WITHOUT MY PERMISSION.
