It is easy to drink away a whole night. It is hard to realise that now unknown dude is aims his gun at the pear at your head.

Plarn

Cute placemat, right? It's made out of plastic bags you cut into strips and use as yarn. It's called plarn, and it's PERFECT for rugs, placemats, and anything that would stain or wear regular yarn quickly. It's the easiest thing in the world to make, and it's free!

I found out about it here, and I think it's just amazing.

i want to make sunglasses and was wondering, where do i get blocks of plastic in the first place? what kind of plastics are safe? i've read articles about the dangers of materials like polyvinyl and i want to know if there is a safe alternative.

i'm lost where to start with this new obsession of mine, so if you have any suggestions, i would love to read them. any links, articles, etc would be most appreciated as well.

Hey all. I had planned on using either resin or a type of glaze in a thick plastic container and was about to purchase some when I thought "Wait a minute... aren't most molds for resin made of plastic?! OH NO!" So, will resin or a type of glaze (not Diamond Glaze, since I need this to be waterproof but something similar) adhere to the plastic or will it end up popping out? If I rough it up with sandpaper will it adhere better? Or am I the only person in the world who actually wants resin to adhere to plastic instead of getting resin off of it so I will never get an answer? :)

Also, has anyone used Krylon Triple Thick Liquid Clear Glaze before for an application similar to what you would use resin or Diamond Glaze for? I saw some at my local craft store and I was intrigued, but I don't remember if it's waterproof so maybe that's a bust, too.

Firstly a question, I apologise if I've missed an entry on this but I couldn't find one. My boyfriend wants to customise some boots as part of a costume but this involves changing the colour from black to brown. The boots are moulded PVC, can anyone suggest paints that would work for this? Needs to be something flexible so it doesn't crack (as I imagine acrylic based would).

& just so my first post isn't all words here are some things I made for Christmas...

My bf and I are painting our Guitar Hero controllers, and his is the guinea pig (the back first!). So far we've done two base coats of red and one coat of red glitter. we're going to do another coat of red glitter and then we want to seal it all with a high gloss/shine topcoat. Any suggestions of something specific to use? We can't really use a spray because the front has delicate hardware/buttons.
