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.
Welp, let's get this party started.
Small glass miniature I've made in the end of December.
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.
Also, some older stuff.
This one actually floats due to large bubble.
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.
>no one dumping good tutorials
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
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.
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.
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.
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
>gr8 idea, flowers in jimmies
Less talking, more doing?
I mean, come on, you MOST DEFINITELY have access to both condoms and flowers — just do it.
Made this in a ceramics workshop a few months ago.
windchime made from turkey feathers, some other bird's bones, and raccoon skull all stuff i found in the woods, makes a really eerie rattling sound
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.
I've been meaning to pick up knitting again. Can anyone give me suggestions on nice knitting needles and yarn for scarves and knit caps? Is lamb's wool the standard?
