  • Going dotty--thanks a lot, Kim!

    Needed a bed for my "furniture suite" and figured it was a good time to try out those fabric paints that I bought with a 50% off coupon at Michael's. I really meant to use them for a decorated cake box, but I haven't had a chance to get the thick maple I needed.

    So, here it is--the dotty decorated bed box!

            Glad you all like it--it's certainly different from my usual stuff.

            Kim's advice about using the paint was very helpful. The only thing I did differently was to use tiny parchment cake decorating bags to get a finer dot than the container's tip allowed. Those little bags are made from parchment triangles and can be used without metal tips--you just cut a tiny bit of the point off.

            Kim said to finish things off with a coat of lacquer after everything's dried up well, so I'll do that in a day or so. I gave it a coat of lacquer before I began, and that didn't seem to keep the paint from adhering well.

            And Gloria, how about dressing up some of your bows with dotted borders or just polka dot ribbons? I used to pipe icing dots and borders on gumpaste loops and tails. If I get a chance, I'll give it a try, unless you beat me to it!

                I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

                The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

                Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
