Let's diversify /ic a bit and share some of our creations that are NOT paintings/drawings.

Jewelry, sculpture, metalworking, woodworking, glassworking, ice carving, masonry, polymer clay, etc — you name is.
Anything goes — as long as it's an object you've made and it's at least somewhat artistic.

>>2340283
/diy is for the technical and technological part of it, yes.
/ic seems more fit for sharing final pieces.
Well, not unless /ic is now officially "drawfags only".

would like to see more sculptures here, too

Why is it covered with a condom?
>>
>>2340478
>>2340488
Actually, would you do that? A series of flowers inside blown condom forms? I think the world needs them in it. Nice to see some blown up erect ones, and some shriveled up spent ones you slumped over the edge of a kiln shelf.
>>
>>2340276
If you're talking about fandom-related crafts or jewellery and accessories, go to cgl.
There's this huge bonus that they aren't raging sexist assholes over there.
>>
>>2340495
They are selling collection condoms like that already. I mean like condom art or art made of condoms.

It's pretty disgusting.
>>
>>2340500
people already make blown glass condoms?
>>
>>2340488
The reason is quite obvious — I cover them for PROTECTION.

After all that's, you know, what condoms are for.
>>
>>2340498
>aren't raging sexist
Meh. They can't even start it properly unless they know what gender is who.

>>2340501
>people already make blown glass condoms?
Well, I've heard of glass dildos. Surely glass condoms can't be far behind?
>>
>>2340543
Thread made me look, and I hate looking at what other people are doing. Didn't find anything like that. Did learn that condom molds are borosilicate, which makes the idea art smart. I'd run with it myself, but I've got too many projects going on. Saw a couple lame things, too. Nothing interesting as the idea of delicate female genital symbol-flowers encased in phallic glass condom sheathes. It would be some kind of metaphorical inversion. Beautiful idea.

wait how do you blow glass i thought that was only done by artisans in italy and autistans in china
>>
>>2344582
You get a blowtorch, gas and glass rods and go nuts.

There's a guy on twitch streaming his glassblowing in the creative section, though he's not on right now.

I would really like a /po/ only about origami. But then that shit would be even deader.

I really need to figure out how to improve my CP paintings. Last crib hit me hard and has me wanting to repaint canvases.

You want tutorials on lampworking?

Well, that's simple, really:
1) Find your local lampworking workshop/artist
2) Take a beginners level class that includes SAFETY section and basic equipment handling

No, see you smack them gently on the nose with it, then they try to catch it, and you try to ' attack it' back with the heart pin.

My cat likes to chase things. I think they would be good cat darts. I'd tape a cotton ball tip at the other end, and throw them all over the room.

>>2340276
Anybody make any shit with clay or wax or make soap? I've been thinking of doing that too but the wire stuff is so cheap as it is.
>>
>>2350682
Cat could care less lol
>>
>>2343824
Damn. I know some koi pond owners would buy big versions of that
>>
>>2351114
I think if you had a thin enough gauge wire & bought cheap stones you could probably make your tree have "leaves" or other sorts of embellishments on any of your other stuff. Unless you wanna leave things as is, of course. Could also opt for stones pre-drilled if wire wrapping smaller things is too much of a hassle.

Also there's usually a bunch of coloured wire in the jewelry section of craft stores to help out in that regard too. You could go all out with colours whilst keeping your project completely wire.
>>
>>2351575
This is true. If I did that to a tree I would remake it. I learned a lot about how to keep the wire structures more stable. That tree is a like a semi flaccid dick in terms of wigglyness.

I was using 3 different gauges of wire but I found I can order large quantities online for cheap so I may look into it more and add gem stones or beads as you mentioned.
>>
>>2351131
I make shit with clay. You should do it. It's pretty neat.
>>
>>2351592
Where do you get it and how do you cure it? It needs to be fired right?
>>
>>2351601
I usually buy prepared moist clay from ceramics supply manufacturers or 50# bags of raw chemicals to formulate my own bodies, but I know how to prospect, mine and process clay from the wild. Use the google.

Natural clay needs to be air-dried then fired in a kiln to be permanent. They can be built, bought or rented. Once again, use the google.

If you have trouble, ask me more questions and I will share my google-fu.
>>
>>2351669
Fair enough. Doesn't sound too difficult
>>
>>2351592
>You should do it
how does one start making shit with clay?
>>
>>2351583
Fair point. I found 100 ft of 16 gauge aluminum for 10 USD on Amazon, which a portion of that is about the same price in a local store.

One option if you get elaborate and/or work smaller, you could move up to actual precious metal wire & sell that shit in the future. You can do it anon
>>
>>2352167
I want to move to copper wire first when I get better and stain it or plate it or something and then move to precious metals if I actually get good

Heat raw glass (rods) on glassworking torch, shape said glass into desired forms, weld resulting forms together as needed.
That's the process in a nutshell.

I've made a few plushes. Pic related is Super Greed from The Binding of Isaac. Stuck some pennies and nickels inside him so he jingles if you shake him. I've made a set of one's for my and my friend's OCs and I have a half-finished one of Lammy from UmJammer Lammy sitting on the table.

I am a hack though because I mostly use official art and shit as a stencil.
