[QUOTE=namelesswonder;924376]That would have been nice, but the paint was all in terrible condition (and so was the fiberglass of the fenders). Also the hood was black. I was going to go pumpkin-inspired and have some black on it, but never got around to it. I also had some purple and leopard/zebra print seat covers :)[/QUOTE]
Ooh that hurts my eyes just thinking about it :-)
So much beautiful work. I don't know how I missed this thread!
I've done a lot of different craft stuff, I especially like drawing in charcoal, painting with encaustic (that's a pigment and beeswax medium) but right now I'm devoting my time to felting: here are some of my masks:
i seriously dig the disco skull
i really really do
I quilt and do machine quilting and art quilts. Been slow lately with my posts but have my backgammon board on my blog modern day designs below.
I've been looking into getting blacksmithing equipment.
I meant to say before that I love the disco skull as well. I really like metallic/shiny works and mixing it up with something so organic makes it that much more interesting. Lots of creative people here, love the masks and quits and photography. Alex, have you already worked with metals? Could you get an apprenticeship working with a blacksmith? Looking back to when I was your age I wish I had done something like that (welding would have been great too) and learned some useful skills.
I've been messing around with the corian, cutting, drilling, polishing, and getting a feel for it. Nothing ground breaking yet, but fortunately I have a ton of the stuff so I have plenty to practice with.

i just wanted to say thanks re: disco skull. It is a very organic thing, the skull. I'm still learning. I just love to work with the skulls b/c of their shapes. The sutures/seams of the skull kinda tell you how to put the pieces. And i love the horns!
my dream is to be able to be able to one day live in the mountains, go for bike rides in the AM and work on skulls in the PM. Just a few more years of wage-slavery and hopefully we'll be able to do it.
I do a bit of illustration in my spare time. I have a website too!
