Starch it! Join me in new Flickr group!

gunsTwo700You all know I have made 3D pieces with filetcrochet and sugarwater :)

Today I started a new Flickr pool called Starch it! (Edit 2018, This Flickr-group is not active. It is no longer possible to enter)
My plan is for you all to join in and we can explore what we can make with this technique together.
You don’t have to crochet – you can use pieces of old Doilys, filetcrocheted bedspreads & other flea market finds. We can share recipes of starch (I only know about sugar/water but I’ve heard about glue and potato/water etc)
What do you say?
I would love if you joined me ! Just email me or make a comment here with your email and I send you an invite to the group.

Kind crocheted regards from Inger Carina

The Craftzine blog liked the idea. I’m so excited!!! :) > Craftzine blog

I get a lot of questions if I have a pattern for this piece and I’m sorry to say I don’t have a pattern.

This sculpture is a see-through 3D piece, crocheted free hand in several pieces and moulded to be able to ”stand on its own”.
Even if I would have a pattern for the different pieces, it would unfortunatelly not be possible to make a copy from it. Because you must have the exact same guns (to fit the pieces) to make the mold from. This is my old play cowboy gun from 1977 which is not on the market anymore. :)

    I know the sugar and water technique along with diluting PVA which also makes a great starch. There is also corn starch which is another excellent product make with cornflour.
    Loving the guns. They’re fantastic
