Hello,Thanks for the heads up. Would surely be careful with the soldering irons. I had my 'initiation' burns a while back, and thats how the iron ended up in attic :D
Looks beautiful! and nice vid too! Thanks for sharing :)
Hello,I watched a few vids off YouTube about pyrography. It looks so awesome! Its like burning thin lines into wood. I can see what you mean by "cutting the fibers of the wood". I would like to try your suggestion of using soldering iron. I already have an old soldering iron lying around in attic. I am dying for this weekend to try out your idea! would definitely post an image for you :)Thanks again for the great idea!
Loved your mini OUIJA board :DPerhaps for slightly lesser cost (and quality!) I guess we can even transfer the print on the wood using thermal paper. Cant wait to try this out!
I really hope crimping works out and you have a wonderful bracelet ready :)
Simple Quilled Cube Earrings
Easy Memory Wire Bracelet
Hello mrsmerwin,Thanks for dropping by :)The memory wire I have is quite pliable. In fact, I was able to easily form it into a loop using nose pliers. I can think about a work around to the problem you are facing. Perhaps you can Super Glue a bead at the open end to prevent the beads from slipping out.Another method that would work is using locking beads (also known as crimp end beads) to lock the ends in place. I could find a source for you here
Amazing work!Can I use polymer cay for this? would this give the same result?
Hi TheCraftMaster419, I am glad that you liked it! :)
This is pretty neat! A brass template like this would last for years!!
Loved how you transformed a simple toy gun into a plasma gun :D

Hey,This looks like a nice idea! It is indeed gives a wring to your creativity, when you dont find the right material :) Its not very difficult to mark the center (Equator?) of the bead. It wont really affect the results even if you mess it up a bit, later on you can cover it up while wrapping.Would love to see your idea when you are done :
This is great, thanks for sharing!Some green colour, and you have a halloween scare :D
Hey, Thanks for the encouraging comment!There are 4 work around I can think of...1. Like you suggested, cut a spherical wooden (or even plastic bead) in half.2. Use a small (about 3/4 inch diameter) ball, pierce a hole through it and cut3. Quill one out :) How? Roll sufficient quilling strip, then pull the centre up, so you have a small dome4. Cast one out from resin, using an hemispherical mould.If I get time, I will sure post an 'ible how to make those. I did not realise that it might be difficult to get the material needed there. Sorry about that.
These are so cool!!Nice work using simple tools :D
Very pro looking bracelet :)Hot gluing while holding the work piece in hand looks scary!Maybe its just me, since I am clumsy with such things and had my share of glue burns :|
This is awesome! The blue really stands out with natural woody texture Congrats on your first 'ible :)Waiting for more!
