she did buy one i guess because she said she was holding one in her hand, and i agree if you dont want to sell it then just buy it

OK. Well Apparently I have Offended someone in this group by asking, what I thought was a simple question. By no means did I, or do I intend to offend anyone so I Apologize in advance. But, to respond to some of the responses that were left by others.

1.(This forum is great, and people share stuff all the time but that doesn't mean we have to or that anyone should just expect us to tell them exactly how they do something. Don't just expect everything to be handed to you)

I never asked anyone to sit down with me and give me a free two hour tutorial and walk me threw it step by step. I simple asked if anyone knew how this was done. I asked the woman because I wanted to know what the outside of this was made of. I thought it was vinyl or something done maybe on a cricut because it was printed on.. She told me that it was all clay and that was it.

2(This really upsets me just because you don't sell your bow online doesn't mean that she should just give you the information....if that was the case I would be teaching bow classes for free on a daily bases to people who just make bows for family and then the next day they start a business!!!!!!!)

Once again I didn't ask her to GIVE me anything. And for you to insinuate that I'm out to ripe this lady off and start a business tomorrow really hurts and offends me. I don't have an Etsy store. I don't sell on Ebay and I don't have a face-book group. I make them only for friends and nieces. I understand there are people out there who would take someone's Idea and run with it, But that's not me and you really shouldn't accuse someone of that nonchalantly.

3 (Just a suggestion but for those who aren't looking to learn this technique to sell, and just want them for family/friends...why not support a fellow (and very talented) bowmaker, and just buy them from the original source?)

Once again an accusation that I'm intending on selling her idea. But Also she is not a Bow maker. Her sister makes bows and she gives the centers to her sister. I did contact the woman about ordering the centers and it will cost me between $6.00 and $10.00 for each center. Now I don't know, but I'm sure that most of you would not pay $10.00 for a center for your bow. I could actually buy the Bow from the sister who makes them and it would only cost me $8.00, but why should have to buy bows. I'm making them for my nieces and friends and I enjoy doing it like many of you. That's like telling someone new that comes in this group, they shouldn't learn how to make bows they should just buy them from someone. Where would half of the people in here be if that was the case? There are people that come in here all the time and ask for help with a techinque or idea. I have seen people ask about making bottle caps. Where do you buy your resin? What kind of resin do you buy? How do you mix it? How long do you let it sit? People give them a step by step, in detail instruction on how it's done and where to go to learn this. I don't see how what I have asked is any different then that. I have figured out after searching on line and looking thing's up for the most part how this center is made. And still I don't have an Etsy store or sell on Ebay. I am really disappointed and hurt by the not so warm welcome I got from this group and most of it seems to be from the administration just for asking a simple question.. I'm assuming that maybe the woman who makes these is a friend of someone on here or is known by a few of you. That I would not doubt. But I really thought I was entering a group of Grown woman who had a passion for a certain craft. I though, I would be able to come in here and ask questions freely and learn new ideas. As well as share thing's I have learned and ideas with other. I feel like I have entered a group of 13 year old girl in a click that don't want any new girls in it.. I enjoy reading the post here and Learning thing's from them and would love to continue this. I would love to be able to call the women in here my friends and get to know people on a first name basis. But I feel that I have been shut down. Again I didn't mean and don't mean to offend anyone but these are my feelings.

I don't know who the lady is i can't even remember the name of her store, it is the way you approached the question and the fact you had like 2 posts when it started. YOU said that you asked her and she wouldnt tell you and you understood a LITTLE why she wouldnt. this place is great for information if you approach it the right way. Calling us a clique of 13 year old girls is for sure not the way. I had been making bows for 4 years before I found this site so I already had my technique down, it wasn't through tutorials or templates it was A LOT of trial and error. When people suggested other ideas for you you shot them down, yes we know that it is not a scrabble tile but those would work, it might not be a shrinky dink but those would work also. I have paid close to 10.00 for a bow center, and tons of people pay three to four all the time for resins.

I do not apologize for anything I said because yes you were asking us to just hand over the information because the original lady would not tell you how to make them.......

Again (I) apologize if I have offended anyone with my post. I was not my intention to have someone tell me from beginning to end how to make these. I was interested in learning and if someone knew a little more about them I wanted to learn. I apologize for my wording if I was not clear. I don't believe I shot anyone down as one woman suggested they were tiles and My reply was simple they weren't and looked like vinyl. I never stated that I would not be willing to try tiles. Another woman said they were possibly Shrinky dinks and I didn't even reply after that. Yes I may have only had two other post but as I said in the Original I am new to this group. I will try and be careful with my wording from now on as not to make anyone think I'm looking for a free hand out. I am interested in Learning and sharing as much as anyone. I can't afford to pay 10.00 for center as I don't sell my bows so I don't make a profit. I make them for the sheer Joy of making them, and seeing my nieces with there hair done up. So Let's End this at that. Thanks you to the woman for the Suggestions you gave me, I will look at trying some of them.

Wow...really stunned by this post! I'm new here too and reading this makes me afraid to ask any questions! I'm only making bows for my daughters and friends...plus my hubby complains about spending money on this stuff...so there is no way I'd spend $10 on a center piece!!! I totally understand the motivation to ask for help when you don't know what you are doing and want to put your kiddos in these awesome bows you see. I don't want to buy the bows, I want to make them...I need a creative outlet...I'm an x-ray tech...I don't get to do anything creative day to day!

Looks like it could be a glass tile or a piece of printable vinyl set on polymer and domed.
