This looks a bit like polymer clay's answer to dichroic glass. Whether it is or not, I've got to try it! 8-)
From Polymer Clay Polyzine, way back in 2004, they're peeling the the shiny, holograph-y layer of a CD off and adhering it to polymer clay. Wild, no? It's not like there's a shortage of used CDs or DVDs here'bouts.
I was wanting to get some inkjet shrink film and had gone to DeSerres but they only had the non-inkjet version. So, I checked with Opus and their nice online store where they had the inkjet version, but at 3 times the cost of the non-inkjet. So, I thought, give Michaels a shot.
You'll notice that I didn't start with Michaels because it is my unverified belief that they price all their products to give them a healthy profit even when using the regularly available 40% off coupon. In my humble (and unverified) opinion, this makes them evil so I try to give my business elsewhere whenever I can. But for $10, I thought, I can call them and check. That's what phones are for, right?
I just finished reading Intertwined: The Art of Handspun Yarn, Modern Patterns, and Creative Spinning by Lexi Boeger of pluckyfluff and it is a wonderful, inspirational, gorgeous book. The author, Lexi, spins like she is a katamari, sticking anything from felted sushi to wire springs, shredded money, doll parts and hardware store detritus into her yarn.
The instructions warn the reader that you should have acquired the basics of yarn spinning on a wheel elsewhere and dive right into unconventional shenanigans.
