Fabulous Hair/DIY

Hey Bloggers!

I am so sorry I have not blogged in a while. I have been so busy with school. I just finished AP Exams and took the SAT last Saturday. I am currently in the week of finals and I have the ACT this upcoming Saturday. I’ve been extremely busy and stressed but i decided to take a break!

I am so excited for this tutorial! My dear friend, Allie (aka allietheunicorn) and I decided that we wanted to buy real rooster feathers as hair extension! They look pretty fabulous!

We bought these from a sweet etsy shop!

The feathers feel nice but look even better!

1st, we took the beads that the feathers came with and put the beads in our hair using a flossing thread. We kinda struggled with this. (maybe i will post a video on how to do it, coming up soon!)

Then we put the feathers into the bead, which was really easy and used pliers to close the bead and secure the feathers!

The feathers are relatively cheap and fun to accesorize with. They will usually last up to 3 months and can get wet, curled, or straightened. It’s like real hair!

PLUS! It looks fabulous on short and long hair!

Bringing Color to Everyday Life

If you are in ceramics and or like this kind of stuff, it’s extremely fun! My idea came from being aggravated at my cups for taking sooo long to make so I took an easier route and decided to experiment with glazes. Glazes are a special kind of paint that when fired at hot temperatures, seal and protect the clay to be used ( in this case, the cups can have liquids in them and you won’t get poisoned! 

On to the cups! If you have a pre-made cup, good for you! If you don’t, then you take a slab and blend it into a cylinder and add a bottom to it and blend that on and then a handle! If I could, I would take pictures but it’s awkward to do that at school! 

After you fire the clay, You put on a base coat of whatever color you want  (I used Mardi Gras which is a white with pebbles of blue that explode to get a splatter like effect)  and after, you take a bunch of different colored glazes and dip a paintbrush in water and then in the glaze and splatter it all over the cup! ( In some cases, you need to flick the paintbrush with your finger). 

You then fire it again to get to this amazing product!

The colors are much brighter in person but i am extremely proud of these!

I love being creative and this is just me sharing one idea to you all!

I Promise…

I promise that from now on, i will try to blog at least twice a week! It could be my new resolution 🙂 

 

I plan on doing a collab. once a week with the fabulous Allie aka AllietheUnicorn. I also plan on doing How to’s, reviews, and begin showing my art and how i got to the finished product! 

SO stay tuned for some amazing stuff! 

 

Yours truly.

Sigh…

I want to do so many things with my blog. I want to DIY and do reviews and post pictures and all that jazz but i don’t have a camera!!! My camera broke and i feel like i fail at blogging. 😦 

I need to save money to buy one but i already use the money i work to get for school, bills, and i’m trying to save for a car. Money just keeps on slipping away. Maybe i’ll get a car in 5 years at this rate and a camera in 7 😛 

Yours only.
