Save you old expired non-stick frying pans. Don't junk them yet.
I may have a project to show you guys soon.
OK, so now I'm so curious I'm about to pee my pants, So Whats UP??? I wanta see...
What a tease !!!!!!
No kidding. I will be awake all night, just wondering what it could be.
Yes I am a teaser! LOL
Here is before, a useless scratched up frying pan:
Oh great...something else on my to do list!!! LOL
I'm trying to make things outta all the glass I have collected, let me catch up first (hehe)
(but I am anxiously awaiting)
***************** Please don't let it involve drilling or cutting ..........
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.
CAN. NOT. WAIT. MUST KNOW. NOW!!!!!!
I have always saved/bought old frying pans! LOL
Now just need to know what different thing dcarch
plans to do with them!!!!
well, some people use them to make large scoops for garden dirt...think it was posted a while back. Or maybe a clock. Or maybe a weapon...lol.....like to bonk a person who spoils a surprise.
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.
Will it be an animal sculpture?
Oh I can't wait to see what it is! I am going to the Treasure Chest this morning to find me a couple!
Tennis rackets? LOL
Also be prepared for a complete let down. You may not like what I have in mind :-)
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:
Wow! I like Calamity's fry pan. Sounds like we should all go buy some, lots of options!
I was just going to post my frying pan from the swap !
I love this ........
Have frying pan(s)
Have Hi-speed drill
Whoops, strike that last one.
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
Rusty, if there are "flying saucers"(ufo), why not flying frying pan!!!lol! TMG: I won't visit you anytime soon...I seem to have the champagne of blood...lol!Good to see your frying pan, was that the one you made or the one you recieved?
That's the frying pan I recieved . It was one of the most awesome gifts I ever got :)
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.
Butter-fry frying pan
Butterfly frying pan!
Too clever! (and beautiful)
Sorry for the delay. The solar pump arrived finally. Here is the almost finished thing. A bird bath with a solar fountain.

WOW is right!!! SUPER COOL! Okay, HOW did you engrave that detailed pattern?!!! Explain Everything...our inquiring minds want to know....!!!
Another WOW!!!! Love it!!!!

Will post instructions if interested??? Are you kidding?? Of course we're interested...we're junkers! Beautiful job dcarch....and a very unique idea!

Hey, I just had a thought...wouldn't this look TOTALLY AWESOME on Halloween with a little dry ice in the mix?
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.
WOW!!!!!Is so true great !!!!
I am not that talented! LOL I'll just order one for one of yall! Simply spectacular!
Oh my, that is inspired - absolutely wonderful!! Photo tutorial please!
Great reuse!! Looks like lot of work. Directions would be good! Jan
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.
Dcarch's posts never cease to amaze me!!!!
Always something beautiful and/or useful---
I am always seeing those big old non-stick woks at the thrift store, or GW. Those should work too, right?!
I never would have guessed it's former life was a beat up frying pan! Beautiful job! I'm looking forward to your instructions.
That is just so cool and it doesn't look like a frying pan at all anymore.
Love to see how you did that!
I have my tools waiting ......... !
May have to try it....too cool!!!!
