I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. It isn’t that I haven’t been crafting, it’s just that February was an incredibly busy month for me.I rescued a mixed breed (possibly a Labrador mix) 8 month old puppy. I finally got to go visit my daughter and grandchildren. After nearly 2 weeks of being away from my studio, I was really ready to get home.

Update to Coat/Hat Racks

I thought I should post an update since I have been spending a lot of time making drawer pulls and Coat/Hat Racks. I’ve made a few more that I wanted to share with you. The first two are 3D printed bases that are covered with polymer clay cane slices. I dipped them in polyurethane a couple of times added some gold leafing and dipped again about 4 more times. I love the depth that is created by the multiple coats of polyurethane. Each coat has to dry at least 2 hours, so this can take a lot of time. Of course most of that time is spent literally watching the paint (polyurethane) dry.

No Smoking Plaque

My brother asked me for a simple laminated cardboard “No Smoking” sign. Of course I had to go bigger (at least nicer) and decided to make a plaque. I used vinyl lettering on a glass backsplash tile I bought at Home Depot.
The only snag was that he wants to hang it on the wall. Check out the hanger clips I designed to print on my 3D printer. They are the perfect solution!
