Thank you. The injections are a hardship sometimes. But I guess it beats the alternative. But who knows what'l happen in the long term?


I think if I were to use a syringe in a project,I'd love to have something like this.




And now, back to  the spider web.


Have you tried distracting your dentist and pinching one?  Grin

Stainless steel icing syringe.

I think this would adapt quite well.

Hey who doesn't love old-fashioned wax sealed letters and scrolls?
I found an easy way to simulate it is to use cheap craft paint.
Here's a batch of small scrolls drying.

Did you burn the edges of the paper?
Wax seal looks good.

Thanks. I'll have to experiment on a letter and see if it'll take a stamp when its half dry.

As for the edges, I find that burned paper tends to crumble and flake away over time.  I like to kick at the edges of the paper while its wet from the tea stain to make the edges ragged. Once these were dry and rolled up, I spritzed them with my trusty can of Glossy Wood Tone spray. Though I think I overdid it in a few spots. Smiley

Meanwhile, here in the workshop, I'm also setting up the Spinning Tower of Paint, made from several Walmart lazy susan's.

You're welcome sir.

 Sorry for the lack of updates on the egg sac. I decided to set it aside briefly and mull it over. I'll be getting back to it though, since it's due to be handed over to its new owner on Friday.

 You know, looking over this page, I'm wondering if we need a sub category just for all the metaphysical creations.

The eggs went to their new owner tonight. I'll post plenty of photos of the final product tomorrow.

Next up a journey back into actual steampunk with a mask.

And here we go.

A few details. The branches are real. I picked it up on a trip to a Puget Sound beach near where a friend works. I need to go back and grab some more.

 The sacs started out as paper balls from Michael's. https://www.consumercrafts.com/store/details/catalog/basics-paper-mache-specialty/2847-16?gclid=Cj0KEQjwjoC6BRDXuvnw4Ym2y8MBEiQACA-jWdRkYSPRrKuhbWtCy3f4dbctwHc0UAf8DVF3WThUxBYaAghG8P8HAQ
 They were covered in layers of paper mache and liquid latex. Then a layer of textured paint, various shades of brown paint, Then white glue and unravelled pieces of black yard. Then painted with glue, and giving a coating of tan flocking to make them slightly fuzzy.

 The webbing is everything from straightened paper clips, the fishing line, and plastic strips. all coated with God knows how many layers of latex, poyurethane, matte varnish, and paint.

Obviously up to your usual standard of excellence. Love the scientific notes. Nicely done connection to a real event. 

I'm sure many others will know what it was.  I only know from science fiction television mentions and do not want to put a spoiler in.  Those who know will be amused and those who don't will Google it and be impressed by your thoroughness.

Looking forward to how many others pipe in with the answer. Linking it to a real life event seemed like a bit of fun since th be honest, I didn't have a fancy back story for this one. So I'll let the readers fill in the details.

Without too much braining, I'd go for the Bigbadaboom... not too far away, geographically.

Masterful work, by the way! I keep expecting to see something poking out!

The level of realism is, and always, stunning; I hope the new owner of the piece is suitably chuffed with it. As to the event, would it be across the Bering Straits?

Yours,
Miranda.

She said she had a 'minor' nightmare about it. You can't ask for better praise than that.
