Legal Pinch on the Cheek

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 27, 2014, 6:01 PM
The things I learned this week
you can not have "inspired by LOTRS" in an item you are selling on Etsy title, even if it is NOT a direct copy of anything in the movies, or Warner Brothers will send you a little legal letter.  Can't have LOTRS in keywords either.  Or hobbit. no idea on elf.  :D  Guess I'm just that good, huh? 

Patchwork skirt by FrockTarts
Patchwork skirt
This was a fun commision. The client wanted a full patchwork skirt, so I got to raid my scrap box for the fabric. you can see past works in there, and some other odd scraps. I wanted it to be full, and I think  I got that effect.. .the hem is a full 14 feet! 

If you are interested in a similar skirt, it would start at $180
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hey! You there! Like what you see? Like what you see but want a different color/fabric?  Or have something completely different in mind?  I'm open for commission, so drop me a line at  Jennifer AT frocktarts DOT com .

Help with Resin! Color tint and type, please help!

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 6, 2014, 7:19 PM
So I'm sure the whole internet by now has seen this, but this guy wonderful glowy shelve has inspired me to do something similar for a picture frame for a Hellboy poster I have. Now, I am a fairly experienced woodworking, I work in a furniture shop, so building the frame doesn't intimidate me at all. But I know NOTHING about the filler resin. I have some really knotty gnarly cedar wood I'd love to use, and have the cracks and knot hole all filled in with red resin. The resin part is what intimidating me, as there seems to be a lot of types and pigment options to choose from, and it looks like I could spend a lot of money and royally screw up. I know what I need, I need it to sand to a fine grit well. I'd like to have it a nice deep crystal like red (glow in the dark is nice, but I'm happy with just UV reactive if that is all I can get) I'm going to use an oil finish, so and to highlight the wood grain. So, anyone who willing to give me some pointer on the types of resin that would be best for this, coloring, and just any tips in general I'd appreciate it greatly 
 


Dragon Con bust.

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 22, 2014, 10:01 AM
SO, and update...  :iconinkibus:  and I are NOT going to Dragon Con this year. Due to an unfortunate turn of events which had both our main plans of travel and our backup plans imploding, and being hit financial, we just couldn't put a plan together in time that had us not mooching off friends, feeling safe, or a way back if things got bad for some reason..... Not even mentioning trying to transport costume or food or anything.  To say were bummed out would be the understatement of the year. A it is, we're going to try again next year, and hopefully things will be more secure. SO if we're kinda scares for the next two seek, we're just avoiding the internet.

vintage style pants by FrockTarts
vintage style pants
Commission I got to make some pants out of a vintage pattern using vintage inspired fabric. I think they came out rather well, and it’s nice to do some “normal” clothes

FrockTarts's Profile Picture
FrockTarts
Golden locks and Cotton frocks
Artist | Hobbyist | Artisan Crafts
United States
When she was little, FrockTart, (Frocky for short) was the type of child who when asked, “What’s your favorite holiday?" would reply "Halloween!". As she grew older, the challenge of being different on Halloween got to be a growing obsession with her, one that had her planning costume in May. Not satisfied with the princesses and witches that were the standard fare of teenage girls Halloween costumes, she soon was creating fantastical and outlandish outfits for her self and the rest of her family. This led to sewing for other, which led to the creation of “FrockTarts” (according to the geek wisdom of Xena, is slang for “seamstress”… wither that is true or not is yet to be determined.)

She has also done more mundane stuff such as baby cloths, purses, and some upholstery on the side. Her current obsession include Steampunk, Dieselpunk , and Flemish rabbits.



Frocky is currently working on another costume for her favorite wizard, and counting down the days till Halloween. She can be reached at FrockTarts@hotmail.com or at her website, frocktarts.deviantart.com/ .

Favourite genre of music: I'm easy. Oh, wait, anything but country or Rap. Please.

Favourite style of art: I'm easy

Favourite cartoon character: Bugs Bunny, Vampire Hunter D, The Simpson's
Personal Quote: I'm not sarcastic, I just say what you don't want to hear.

Doing good. Work is well and trying to keep up with it. And just signed a TV deal. Going to shoot the pilot in Dallas in a month or so. One of those TV reality shows about artists etc. But the show has to be picked by a network first. So nothing may come of it.

Anyway. Just wanted to say hello and let you know I am thankful for you noticing my work. I hope you are well and making buckets of cash. :)
