Broken Glasses

I really want to make these frames work again. They’re lovely, but the plastic parts are very frail. I’m considering using a resin of some kind to piece them together, I attempted to use superglue, but then the bridge broke while I was holding it to set.

It’s hard to find cats-eye frames like these now, I think these were my Omi’s from the mid-60s. She isn’t sure, but she said they aren’t her mother’s.

I guess the main problem with reconstructing the plastic is making them so lenses will still fit snugly in them. I don’t have tools to work with metal, or that would be a more sturdy option to work on.


Secret Project

Well…it was supposed to be secret, but I was impatient and wanted to work on it when my friend was here, so, bah.

Anyway, this is a peek of what I’m working on.

It’s going to be a full mask, I got most of the head portion finished the other day, but I haven’t got more pictures for you yet.

Oh, also, you can stick your hand in the nose and make the tentacles move, although you can’t wear it that way.

Is it obvious who it is? Guesses?

I’m thinking about making some kind of mask for halloween…but they take a while, so I want it to be something cool, so if I start it early I’ll still want to use it by October. Also, not TOO complicated so I don’t just get tired and annoyed, hehe

Decisions decisions…
