What is "Casper Crafts" all about?
This site describes core methods you can use to create and repair everyday objects, make "arts crafts". Traditionally this is called artisan craft. I dev2eloped most of the crafts and techniques on this site to demonstrate easy ways to do complex projects; like pottery and metal casting on a budget starting with mostly raw materials. I believe crafters can gain a greater understanding of their craft by starting from the ground up. I've also added up to date feeds agrigating crafts from all across the web so you can see what other crafters are inspired by right now!
This is a place for fundamental and hard to find ideas, like how to make wicking or pottery on a budget. Making wicking is a standard piece of knowlege for making a lamps. Wicks from the store burn slowly and if you want your homemade wick to burn out slowly then you add salt to your wick. Another general piece of knowlege is that pottery can be low fired in a barbeque grill. Basic ideas like these can open up all sorts of crafts to people. Some of these crafts might be done for art and other for utility. Either way, small ideas can change what people think they can do and that can open up a whole world of posibilities. That's what this site is all about.
