So You Want To Make Your Own Vertical Stovepipe Steamer?

I wrote a post on my other blog several years ago, but was just asked to create a new document for the Silk Painters group on Facebook.  So I thought I'd share it here! Making your own Stovepipe Steamer is relatively easy to do and certainly cost effective!  To buy one new (and made specifically for silk paintings) will easily cost you over $1000 bucks.... but making one yourself can cost under $100 (mine was less than $50!). I've had several people ask: Why do you want a Stovepipe Steamer?  Can't you just use a pot and steaming basket on your stove? Both are good questions! Yes you can use a pot and steaming basket on your stove.  But I personally, don't care for the idea of the chemicals/dyes/etc being in my kitchen. They are NOT good eats (to borrow from Alton Brown). Plus if you use a steaming basket in a pot, you have to constantly watch the water levels.  And you don't have a lot of space, which means you're probably only steaming 1 item at a time.

Our Place In This World

Are you like me and have felt that the last year has been filled with incredibly negative and divisive talk around the country?  I have been hearing more and more people talking about feeling alienated, ostracized, or marginalized.    To me, it is heartbreaking to hear that many smaller community groups (such as Elderly, Muslims, LGBTQ, Veterans, Disabled, Mexicans, Youth, etc), all have community members who feel unloved, unwelcome, unwanted, and un-needed!   In response to this rising wave of alienation, I've started the Our Place In This World community art project.  Our Place In This World  seeks to demonstrate the importance, beauty, and impact of each individual (especially those from marginalized or fringe communities), within the overall/larger community.  Everyone should know that they are beautiful, important, and hold a valued place within the larger community.  I've started a separate blog:   to provide

So you're thinking of making your own World Globe Bowl or Lampshade?

World Globe Bowl So you're thinking of making your own World Globe Bowl or Lampshade? (a series of 3 tutorial posts explaining how to select a World Globe, make a lampshade, and make a bowl). I've done alright making World Globe Lampshades and Bowls for my business Re-covered Treasures (see my blog and my Etsy store ReCoveredTreasures4U ).    But over the years I've received lots of questions about how to make them, so I thought I would share that information. World Globe Lampshade with crystal trim So this post will be the beginning of a basic tutorial on how to choose World Globes to make World Globe Lampshades and Bowls,  which I will then do a follow-up posts on how to actually make the lampshades and bowls. The first question I always get is "where do you find all of your globes?"   There are a ton of places to find globes:  Garage Sales, Thrift Stores, Friends & Family, Antique Stores, Flea Markets,
