    After talking to a quite a few people here at Dawg's, its my understanding that I am posting amongst people who have artistic leanings and love to create. I fancy myself an amateur artist and I absolutely love crafts and refurbishing things.

    I will post pictures of some of my projects both complete and incomplete. I would love for you guys and gals to do the same.

    If you don't wish to post pictures, I encourage you to talk about your projects or help others who need advice about theirs.

    I wish I had a before picture of this...

    I bought an ugly frame that was covered in this awful gold paint. I sanded it by hand, and I distressed it with three layers of paint.

    I made the frame for the print...

    Same here. I cannot knit or crochet worth a damn.

    I'd love to learn, but the instructions on the internet confuse me. :eek:

    I once made a clay sculpture of a horse. Copied it from a porcelain one. It came out really good and the art teacher put it in its own
    glass case at the art show. And then at the bottom of a cardboard box to bring it back to the classroom. It was smashed to pieces. :bigcry:
    But I like the idea of the thread, Francisco. :up:

    That's so sad. :(

    You should try sculpting again with your girl. You could start out with that cheap art clay from Walmart and if you like it, invest more money/time.
