    I get nice little paint dots using tooth picks!

    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!

    started a topic Going dotty--thanks a lot, Kim!

    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!

    I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

    Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

    What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

    Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

    I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
