    Kim I do so enjoy your posts. After my initial "Nah that won't work" when I read your rays WIP, I managed to keep my sceptisism in check.

    I was wise to, it will look great - I know it.

    Good Luck
    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

      Thanx Mayo for your kind comments! I know what you mean...every time I start one of these crazy projects I wonder "what was I thinking!?! Then when they turn out better than expected I puff up and say "That's exactly what I was thinking!" - lol!

        Superb. Once again. You need to stop setting the bar quite so high...You will get a nosebleed from the altitude before long.

                Mike - Nah...ya gotta keep reaching for them stars...maybe one day I will be a 'superstar' - lol! However, I will watch out for those nosebleeds - hee hee

                Jim - Thanx a bunch!!! I still need to get back to "Mischievous Grace'...but my orders come first so maybe after the holidays. Did you figure out the subject yet? Glad you joined me on my journey!

                StephenD - thanx for the kind comments and thanx for taking the time to follow along. Hoping to have some more photos/progress posted by the end of the weekend.

                Trout - I know the title 'Liquid Barb Wire' kinda threw people off...and didn't really get it, but that's what makes them so much fun...making your imagination work overtime. The lady that commissioned the jelly stopped by today to see the progress. When I went to show her the strands of glass beads I didn't see the lizard (evidently he decided to take up residency) and he jumped on my bench...kinda startled us both as I did not see him. Hung the beads back up and within the hour he was back to hanging out...go figure! So I promise not to melt him...however, he might just become another addition to the jelly - lol!

                Thanx again everyone for following my progress and the kind comments!

                  It's a real stinger...





                  In my initial post I discussed the beginning construction. So here's somewhat of how the remaining process went:

                  Lighting - spend hours on internet researching light sources, spend more hours and gas going to local stores, buying several lighting systems, taking them apart and trying to rewire them so they work for what I need...oh, did I ever tell you that I am NOT an electrician!?! Now I have a pile of designer dismantled light systems...perhaps I will find a use for them somewhere down the line as I don't think they will make good firewood ;-0 But have faith, there will be light at the end of the tunnel, or under the jelly fish! After going thru several different types I was shocked to find the best one (for my purpose) at Wally World made for under cabinets; battery operated, remote control, led light bar...oofta, say that three times!



















                  Thanx for following me along, any and all comments, criticisms and such are welcome!

                  HEAUX, HEAUX, HEAUX & HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!!

                        Oh Wow! Kim!! He looks fantastic!
                        I don't know how you do it - not only coming up with the designs but figuring out how to light it too. Great job!

                                SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                                Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                                Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
