Ok crafter friends...help!

I'm looking for a product or technique to give a piece of water colored art, a 3D look..a China glaze, raised smooth look. I've tried, but the water colors under seem to get wet again and run. I've tried different sealing stuff...still runs. Any ideas?

Have you tried salt? It may not be as smooth as you would like but it would definitely raise the image.

Also, maybe try mixing the watercolors with a texture paste? Those will harden and stay. The nature of watercolors really prohibits them being wetted multiple times without them scooting around all over but if you mix the colors themselves with something that will form the image you're looking for, you have a better shot of getting the image you desire.

Default Wrangle reminder

Now that the deadline is less than 2 weeks away and some of the early birds will be sending their work to clay any day now, I'd like to remind everyone to include money for shipping and repackaging.

Wranglers aren't here to foot the bill for shipping and I don't want clay to have the issue that I had last round, when two people didn't send any money at all. That was a bit frustrating for me, honestly, and I don't want clay to have to deal with that as well.

Please be considerate and make sure to get your work in on time, include an appropriate amount of money for shipping given your location ($5 domestic, $10 for international) and make sure put a piece of yourself in your work.

I keep all the projects I participate in and now that I've got a designated art and crafts room, I am enjoying those projects again and again as I display them. Oh and make sure to put your information on each piece...usually on the back or the outside of the baggie if it's in one.

Thank you Gemme!!! So appreciate your posting this. Being a new wrangler. I may overlook posting something...

I wanted to add:

Make sure to include a legible return address!

If you want a piece to go to someone specifically, please be sure it is labelled accordingly, otherwise choice is up to wrangler!!

Make sure your $$ is where I can see/find it easily...thanks!!!

REMINDER:
"For 2016, the rule is if one of our projects is received by the wrangler more than seven days after the due date, or one of us drops out of a project for whatever reason, that person is welcome to continue posting but is not allowed to sign up for a group project again until January 1st, 2017. No exceptions. This rule applies to participants and to wranglers. This rule must be posted at the bottom of all new projects that are being wrangled so that members can thoughtfully consider whether we wish to commit to a new project. And for the purposes of clarification, if someone drops out before the deadline to sign up has been closed then they are not excluded from future projects because they are still following the rules."

Hey, all.

I'm a little slow sometimes, so some of you may already know about this arts and craft community project but I just learned of it and thinks it's fantastic and totally up some of our alleys. It calls for creative energy to be explored daily with little to no expectation, thus allowing for pure creativity without prejudice or self-editing or criticism.

It isn't a thread project and should not interfere with clay's project or any future projects but if you are interested, check out The100DayProject.

It was the first time I had that happen and just want to make sure, especially with some new artists joining us, that it doesn't occur again.

If someone doesn't put money in maybe it's because they forgot. Yes, maybe that is a little careless but we get excited about our projects sometimes and make a mistake. I think it is fine to either PM someone or mention it directly on the thread, Hey, so-and-so, you forgot to include the shipping costs. I would assume most of the time it is an honest mistake, and there's no shame in speaking up with a gentle nudge to let the person know they must have forgotten. Now it's a different story if someone is not responsive when the wrangler reached out to them. The nice thing to do is to apologize and send it right away.

Agreed. It happens to all of us at one point or another but I don't like bill collectors and I don't like feeling like one. I think everyone knows if they did or didn't send money. It may take a day or two, but they figure it out, usually in an 'aha!' or 'I forgot to turn the stove off!' moment. Usually, they'll contact the wrangler and send it out by itself like you said. That's how it's worked until this last round, anyway. I wanted to put a little emphasis on that will some new crafty blood entering the fold, so no one else has this issue going forward.

3.Project deadline for mailing out to me...will 04/24 ample enough? That gives 21 days crafting time...or do we want to give til 04/30...that would give 27 days creating timeframe...let me know ASAP please....

4. The medium can be of each crafter's own choosing......fabric, watercolor paper (hot pressed kind), any kind of paper that will allow for wax resist & watercolors...or maybe something one of you tries/tried and found to work also....I am totally open and leave each with free reign for their choice & creativity....

5. ATC's are very popular with this group, so I am amenable to anyone doing them...with size being their own choosing...inchies, twinchies, rinchies, et al....be creative just HAVE FUN...

All typical rules are in play:

#1. "For 2016, the rule is if one of us is more than a week late or drops out of a project for whatever reason, that person is welcome to continue posting but is not allowed to sign up for a group project again until January 1st, 2017. No exceptions. This rule applies to participants and to wranglers. This rule must be posted at the bottom of all new projects that are being wrangled so that members can thoughtfully consider whether we wish to commit to a new project. And for the purposes of clarification, if someone drops out before the deadline to sign up has been closed then they are not excluded from future projects because they are still following the rules."

#2. Please add $5 for repackaging and postage. I'll send my address to you once signups are complete.

#3. Make panels, or pairs, or a series (I know so many of us are really awesome at these if one chooses to do ATC's) of any of the following: traditional 2.5x3.5 ATCs, rinchies, twinchies, inchies, minis or micros or a combination thereof.

#4. If you choose fabric, you can use a swatch, a bandanna, or whatever you wish, but keep in mind the repacking & postage to mail back out....


#5. The Un theme is a very literal....Glad Rags, Paper Bags, & Happy Tags. It's your interpretation, so be as literal or abstract as you want to be. Any materials are accepted within reason to be able to be mailed within parameters of the postage sent in with project.

Hoping I have done this correctly & not screwed up too badly... ...once I get feedback....I will post a sign up list....this is a proposal to get everyone thinking....joining in...

As far as supplies, with the wide range to choose from, should be good for all budgets. I want folks to HAVE FUN....step out of the proverbial box and HAVE FUN......use crayons as a "resist" OR Vaseline on card stock as one of the links I posted showed...glue & gesso...candle wax....and watercolors are inexpensive......my aim is we have fun doing & exploring a new to us technique, to be stress free...and fun to use....

Feel free to ask me any questions...anyone...at all....

Happy designing!!!

Sign up closed as of 04/03/16.

Thanks for all who have signed up!!! Let's get the creative juices flowing!!!

The deadline to receive the project is May 9, 2016....as we have extended it to allow for Breathless to join us, whom is in Canada!!! Please send me 8 projects since there are 9 people participating. In return, I will send each of you a project from all participants.

1. Clay
2. Besame
3. Gemme
4. nycfem / Jennifer
5. CCB
6. Genesis
7. FireSignFemme
8. Breathless
9. Tallulah

"For 2016, the rule is if one of our projects is received by the wrangler more than seven days after the due date, or one of us drops out of a project for whatever reason, that person is welcome to continue posting but is not allowed to sign up for a group project again until January 1st, 2017. No exceptions. This rule applies to participants and to wranglers. This rule must be posted at the bottom of all new projects that are being wrangled so that members can thoughtfully consider whether we wish to commit to a new project. And for the purposes of clarification, if someone drops out before the deadline to sign up has been closed then they are not excluded from future projects because they are still following the rules."


The medium can be of each crafter's own choosing......fabric, watercolor paper, cardstock paper, ATC cards...........any kind of paper that will allow for wax resist & watercolors...crayons for resist, watercolor, gesso & glue, candle wax......whatever resist you want to use.....or maybe something one of you tries/tried and found to work also....I am totally open and leave each with free reign for their choice & creativity....

ATC's are very popular with this group, so I am amenable to anyone doing them.......l would like the ATC's to be at least 2.5x3.5....be creative just HAVE FUN...

We will each make one item for each participant. If one chooses to do more than one, awesome. But one is the required number!

All typical rules are in play:

Please add $5 if you are in the US and $10 International, for repackaging and postage. Please send cash as I don't want to have to deal with checks, money orders, etc!!! Thank you for your cooperation in this...

Please put a slip of paper in with the package with a legible & complete return address so I can get your delicious goodies back to you......thank you!

When you mail the package to me, make sure I DO NOT HAVE TO SIGN for it....please & thank you!!

I'll send my address to you in a PM soon.

I will use the plastic bubble envelopes to mail back most likely.

Whatever medium one chooses if they use cloth or swatch....make these at least 6"x6" and can be up to 8" by 10" as cloth folds relatively flat for mailing...a bandanna comes in a generic size usually and also folds relatively easy for mailing.

Choose whatever medium you wish, but keep in mind the repacking & postage to mail back out....

The Un theme is a very literal....Resist & colors. It's your interpretation, so be as literal or abstract as you want to be. Any materials are accepted within reason to be able to be mailed within parameters of the postage sent in with project.

Thank you for all of you signing up! This will be a fun & interesting project & I am eager to see everyone's own interpretation of this one.....have an awesome week........clay.........

Wranglers aren't here to foot the bill for shipping and I don't want clay to have the issue that I had last round, when two people didn't send any money at all. That was a bit frustrating for me, honestly, and I don't want clay to have to deal with that as well.

Please be considerate and make sure to get your work in on time, include an appropriate amount of money for shipping given your location ($5 domestic, $10 for international) and make sure put a piece of yourself in your work.

I keep all the projects I participate in and now that I've got a designated art and crafts room, I am enjoying those projects again and again as I display them. Oh and make sure to put your information on each piece...usually on the back or the outside of the baggie if it's in one.
It's May 5th....Cinco de Mayo...are you finished with your Resist project? Is it mailed? Did you remember to include shipping money? Did you enjoy it? Are you ready to sign up for another project?

Hope so!!!

Deadline is in FOUR DAYS!!!
