How to Build Wood Flooring from Wood Pallets DIY Project. By using wood taken from dissembling different wood pallets, a person will accumulate a beautiful selection of wood pieces that once assembled will create a patchwork of colors. Wood pallet boards are coarse, knotty and unrefined but still usable with a little effort of sanding the boards into a smooth finish. by bbooky

JUDITH DE VRIES, colored porcelain. Made out of French porcelain clay from limoges, mixed with different colour pigments. The bottom parts of her vessels are often thrown, the top part built up by slabs with complex decorative patterns made piece by piece with multiple strips of coloured clays. Glazed interior. Burnishing w/wet and dry paper after final firing obtains a softly smooth surface. by olga

Denise Brown - slab built, the detailed images are incised by hand, then she uses a copper carbonate wash to create the colour outline of the design, and then decorates using a range of dry glazes. High firing to 1270°C gives the stoneware clay a warm but weathered look. Each piece is then finished with the hand application of 22ct gold leaf. by turnsole

We took a shallow translucent box and sprinkled some colored sand (of the type used to fill sand art bottles)on the bottom. We placed that box on one of our homemade light boxes. It was beautiful. Then we used our fingers to draw in the sand. The children loved it. They played over half an hour making designs on their own. We tried two different colors. by shari

Fran did this project with third grade, using recycled two liter soda bottles. The children cut tails, drew patterns with Sharpies on the outside and then colored in the inside with gel pens. The tails are then stapled, and they strung up using a string attached to a bead inside the bottle. Most people think they look like stained glass. Fran got this idea from the NJAE conference. by anita

Restoring teak furniture  What You Need:  Rubber Gloves  Two Brushes  Medium Grit Sandpaper  Soft Bristle Brush or Steel Wool  TSP (a cleaning agent) and a bucket of warm water  Teak Oil  Polyurethane    Instructions:    Clean: If you are dealing with teak turned old and grey you will be surprised at how this step alone will begin to transform your piece. Using a soft bristle brush or steel wool, thoroughly scrub the wood with warm water and a detergent like TSP. This gets rid of the oxidation and dirt that has built up and given the wood its silvery patina. Depending on the state of your teak this step can take quite a while and require some serious arm work. If you're starting out with some really weathered teak you will begin to see some serious transformation here as the wood's true color starts to make its appearance.    Sand: You'll need to get some medium grit sanding blocks and sand your teak by hand to even out the top layer of wood. Try to get the color as even as possible.    Dry Time: If you're like me this is the hardest part. I am so impatient that once I start I just want to keep going till it's finished, but I assure you this step is really important. Your newly cleaned teak needs a few days of drying time so that the oil you will put on in the next step can fully saturate deep into the wood's pores.    Oil: These next two steps are very toxic so make sure you are in a well ventilated area before you start applying these chemicals. Now that the wood is good and dry you are ready to apply the oil. Go get some good quality Teak Oil, a brush and some rubber gloves and lightly brush the oil over all surfaces three times each. You must do this a minimum of four rounds with an hour in-between allowing time for the oil to fully saturate the wood. Apply as many times as needed until you get the desired color of wood.    Seal: At this time your teak should be looking as good as new. After all the work you've put in you may be tempted to call it quits, but you still have one more step. You have only restored the teak's natural oil at this point but haven't protected it from further damage. That's where the polyurethane comes in to seal in the oil and protect the surface. Paint on a few coats and let dry for a few days, and you'll be ready to sit back, relax and enjoy your newly restored Teak furniture.    Store: Going from Los Angeles to Seattle I completely failed to do this step last winter so I thought I would throw it in. I used to live outside and never had to give a second thought to my outdoor furniture so upon moving to this new climate I was a bit stubborn and naive about the correct upkeep. So if you don't live somewhere that has year round summer then you should either cover your furniture or bring it into an unheated garage. I say unheated because temperature changes and excess heat can crack your wood.      MORE TEAK RESTORATION ON APARTMENT THERAPY:  How To Care For Teak Furniture by babyblu3
