Screen printing, Stained Glass, ceramic decals, Airbrush, Water color, Oil Paintings, pen and ink, pop-up cards, pad printing, video taping, photo, web page design and commercial flyers, wood work, restored a 1968 VW. We could go on, but the list of things we have done or tried is just too long. Oh yes, we even bought a limo once just for fun, not business. So we love artwork and crafts. Here are just a few of the things we have done.  

We have made signs for years and have a Roland Plotter/Cutter. The cutter is 24" and can use some professional material. You can feed a thin kitchen cutting mat through with some removable roll-on glue on the mat to hold cardstock.

We have made large pop-up boxes that took a full 24" x 30". When you open the envelope the card comes out and pops up into a house. We used this one as a Christmas card. Check out the pictures.

  Airbrushing and painting. Painting carries over to oil painting, tole painting, water color and even painting on some of the cards we make. Love to airbrush. We have airbrushed cakes, flowers, wood, Christmas cards and more. It brings out so much fine detail in everything.

Our front door. We hand picked the glass from Hudson Glass Co. in New York. The beveled glass we got in Germany. When we moved we took the glass with us. Now we plan to build a box with a light behind it for display.

free At times I was asked to make gifts for some higher ranking officers in 1983. Dieter Niebaum was an aid to a one star general. I was asked to design and airbrush the Space Shuttle in the Air Force MAC colors. The general worked on the shuttle at one time. Military Air Lift Command was planning to use the shuttle for putting satellites in space. I liked it so much I made one for me, too. The stained glass was a gift for a guy that worked in three commands. I would make the design on paper and they would approve it. The painting below was my entry for the 25 years of the Minute Man Missiles. I took first place but the design had too much detail so they took the second one. Belt buckles, cups, shirts and other items were made. That's OK, we got the order for the shirts and cups.

In 1984 I was asked to make a record and cassette cover for two singers in Germany. Dixie and Rochelle toured in Germany and sang for the troops. The name of the group was Assurance. We also made some custom shirts with the same logo on the back. We both worked on this one. Lot's of fun.

Found this old lamp at work. A little paint and I made the shades. Just like new. Got this idea to make clay leaves. Molded the leaf then airbrushed them. Put three in a stand I made and got a water pump. Used it for a party.
