  • chinese symbols

    Have been asked for a fused glass dichroic pendant with the chinese symbol for health inside, any ideas where to get a template, punch (to use copper foil) or anything else that would work. Have thought about etching the dichroic before fusing but would need to be able to get the sign precise and so would have to use a stencil. Have had a quick search on the web but to no avail. Any ideas would be welcome. Elaine

            Goldy1 just posted a link for you with the symbol - as for the rest, these things take time.............if you post in the afternoon, remember people are working at their crafts during the day, you may not get an answer immediately.

              You really do need to give people time to answer your queries .... we're not here 24/7! Goldy did post a response an hour before your last post!

                    If you are quite happy to trace it yourself them try tattoo websites - be warned though you might see things you wish you hadn't!

                      Is that from personal experience then?

                          I've got a cheek, I've got one too - had it done for years - a little black cat on my shoulder. Remember sitting in the tattoo parlour thinking what the hell am I doing here!!! But like you say some of the tattoos you can get - made be blush some of them and that takes some doing.

                          Cheers.

                            It's the piercings that get me!!! Hubby nearly had a fit when I turned up with my tattoo - only had it about 9 months or so. I'd been saying that I wanted one for ages but he hadn't expected me to have it done! I went over to my mum and dad's and my sister looked after the girls for me and I went to the guy who does my mum and dad. Didn't like him much but he was good.
