MADE: SHARK


Sharks are really having a moment. 
With the Givenchy shark tooth necklace, SHARKNADO, and of course... Shark Week. I personally am not ashamed to admit to watching SHARKNADO three times. Now, the only thing cooler than Ian Ziering sawing out of a shark... is a color changing shark tooth. All you need is some Thermochromatic Pigment. It comes in a bunch of colors, and is way easier to use than you think. The pigment turns clear at 92°F (33°C). So you can mix it in almost anything, like paint, resin, or glue. I mixed it with white resin, so room temp its black, when you wear it, your body heat turns it white.

SUPPLIES: THERMOCHROMATIC PIGMENT / AMAZING CASTING RESIN / CHAIN / JUMP RINGS / SCREW EYES /SILICON MOLD PUTTY / SHARK TOOTH
Left to Right
1. Mix the two silicon together. You have to work fast, you have about one minute before it starts to harden. 
2. Roll a ball. flatten it, and push the shark tooth in. Let set for 20 minutes
3. Mix one to one of resin together, add a scoop of thermochromatic pigment and stir together. Pour into the mold. **Work fast. 
4. The tooth should be set in about 5 minutes, remove from the mold and put a screw eye in the top. Make sure you go fast before it sets. 
5. Repeat until you have enough teeth. I used 7
6. Attach the teeth to your chain with jump rings.

MADE: PENCIL CASE

All I know is, we never had cool pencil cases like this when I was in school. 
This post is a two for one. I keep finding really cool pencil cases in the back to school sections. The hard case is from Target, the pouch (Bottom of the post) I picked up at Michaels... You can never have too many clutches. 
SUPPLIES: PENCIL CASE / E6000 / METAL PLATES / HINGE / BRADS / WIRE CUTTERS / PENCIL POUCH 


Left To Right
1. Pry the metal plate off the front, fair warning... its not easy. 
2. I bought a pack of metal plates at Michaels, as well as the gold brads. The hinge is from the hardware store. Use E6000 glue to glue the metal plate in the center of the clutch. 
3. Bend the brads through the hinge holes. Bend them so they are hidden.
4. Glue the hinge to the plate. 
5. Cut off the brad prongs 
6. Glue the brads to the corners of the plate. Repeat all sets on the other side when the glue sets. 


Just in case you wanted to know what I keep in my clutch....
**Bonus DIY**
I loved this bag as is, I carried it that way for a few days... It's also only $5 at Michaels. But after I finished the box clutch I added some hardware.... I might be adding a hinge to every bag I make. Just use the brads to attach the hinge. Boom, Michael Kors wanna be. 


Thanks for the photos Geof
