Did everyone enjoy the Superb Owl?
Here’s a particularrly UGLY and FOUL piece of SH*T at HP
I reported him to moderators
I put a base coat of paint on one of my newly cast Hobbit door, and the swan, and one of the lion heads. That way I could use the smaller pieces with the door. Still trying to think of a use for the swan.
Morning, Boy – the swan could make a wonderful sign for a pub.
great idea thanks cg
a Hobbit pub…perfect
I think I’ll go find some more surfaces to copy with aluminum foil. I should look into other ways to make impressions besides foil and playdoh. the playdoh can stick to the water putty, and the foil can tear and leave creases or wrinkles…….hmmmmmm?
a thin copper foil might be an option, my great aunt did crafts that you rubbed copper foil over molded plastic.
There’s a silicon product used to make molds for wax castings for jewelers. Rio Grande Albuquerque carries it. If you want to check it out, I have an account with them.
So tell me, sis, how did you win the box thingie? I never figured out what it was all about! But I did come close to guessing the final score – I said 35-31!
It’s all a shot in the dark – you pick your squares and the numbers are added in after the squares are filled. Then you hope you win with one of them. You are not betting on a score, you just hope your squares have good numbers.
thanks, Beau has accounts to quite a few wholesalers.
Rio Grande is a jeweler’s supply, another favorite is Dick Blick for art supplies. There may be some good ideas there, too.
Oooh, some fun stuff here…http://www.dickblick.com/categories/modelingcompounds/
When I have some space, I might try some of this – love doing sculpture!

thanks bookmarked it
loved the pompous, quasipatriotic, emotional blackmail used as suberbowl commercials this year. If you love America buy a jeep or the terrorists win.
And if you want a juicy kiss? Use Go Daddy? Even C3 was grossed out by that chit!
Good morning, Everyone!
Hiya, Poco! I enjoyed the game, hope you did. Did you guys win your game?
we did indeed. It was far closer than it should have been but we opened up a big lead in the 4th quarter.
Congrats!! Did you stay up for the whole game?
yup, the team booked a nightclub and sold tickets. Good night all round.
Congrats, Poco – good job!
They were bringing a big blitz all day so we just burned them with short passes over and over and over. Occasionally running a double back run inside to keep them honest.

Back from making more foil impressions, I did one of half my sundial face, that I hope turns out, and some concrete, and bark textures, I also took an impression of a moroccan looking platter that looks like hammered metal.
morning poco and Ricki
Morning, BiB! You’re really making great progress with your Hobbit project! Where are you planning to put it?
I haven’t quite decided if each Hobbit House will be in a large pot, or if I’ll build a boxed in garden, where a whole cluster of homes could be staged. The problem with the box, is weeds and armadillos, and fire ants can ruin that. Fire ants go up in pots too…so I’ll work on the buildings, and figure out the final plan…..after.
I’m leaning towards a cluster of large pots.
A village display would be cool though. You could always put down several layers of landscape cloth. We have horrendous fire ant problems here, too. I really have to stay on top of it and it’s hard with having the cats outside – always afraid I’m going to poison them. Either way, it’s really a neat idea!
large pots also gets the garden up to a level I don’t need to kneel to work on.
True, I didn’t think of that! Much easier to maintain, indeed.
I came up with a couple ideaa to use the swan medalion, either on a chimney or the gate of a fence.
Hey, you could make a fortune selling that to Repub supporters!
lolz! Morning, Fi!
Thanks, need that.
here’s a pic of the bark textured door and the original door. I have a dark wash over the base coat of the bark door.
I hears NOLA did very well profitting from the Superbowl
NCP charges £20 daily x 500 years.
I hope King Richard 3rd’s descendants have some money!
dumped in an impound lot….how the monarchy has fallen
It was Shergar they were originally looking for!
Here’s a pretty Hobbit House pictures,
I’ll add a window to my next door casting, by putting a piece of pvc on the mold standing upright leaving a hole, that I can add a piece of acetate or plastic to the back i like the lichen on th fence boards too.
That looks like the one from the set that Peter Jackson kept as a guest house on his property.
here’s where I found a bunch of the pics….it was a GREAT find for ideas
Cute – nice model to work from, too.
All the stuff I glued to that brick are still stuck,… me likeee the loctite!
When you least expect it.
Not funny, my hubby does that all the time to me!
Off to the showers and off to do errands. See you later – be well.
later cg…happy trails
See you later, sis. Have a good day! 🙂
