Hello guys,

Save you old expired non-stick frying pans. Don't junk them yet.

I may have a project to show you guys soon.

Sorry about the teasing. Don't mean to do it.

A part for the project I ordered still has not arrived. Hopefully the next two days.

I've always wanted to make on of the painted fry pans - you paint (usually) a face on the bottom, then it hangs very nicely. One that I saw was a gingerbread face.

Oh I've seen people make bird baths out of old pans. It's quite easy, all you do is remove the handle, drill a hole in the center, add a washer and rubber ring and attach it to a post.

This is what a friend gave me(a fellow mosaicer) when we had done a "frying pan challenge" on the Stained Glass/Mosaics forum...I get soooo many compliments on this, it is hanging in my kitchen...

Here is a link that might be useful:

Just another thought - I could use an old frying pan as a fly swatter in my yard --- I think the mosquitos here have evolved into flying vampires .... LOL

A thrift store just opened up in town and they have old expired non-stick frying pans up the ying-yang. I was thinking...maybe...stepping stones??

Toomuchglass, that frying pan is gorgeous! I have seen mosaiced ones but nothing as pretty as that.

Sprout, you might have a great idea there. I alway see old grudgy frying pans at thrift stores. Maybe I will pick up a few.

DOUBLE W.O.W. You never cease to AMAZE me! I had been waiting and checking everyday since you first posted the frying pan to see what you were going to create AND YOU DID NOT DISAPPOINT ME!!! I want you to know that whenever you post I anxiously await opening it to see what you have done.

You guys are just too kind! Thanks for all the compliments. You are embarrassing me!

I will be posting details in another thread. I just want to give advance warning to those of you who have slow connections that there will be lots of pictures. Don't open it if that would be a problem for you.

See you later.
