1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Painting rubber soles on: September 27, 2006 02:01:10 PM
Does anyone know what type of paint to use for painting rubber soles?
I tried acrylic paint once. It flaked off when they got wet...

I'm thinking something that's not water based...?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Purple tartan pleated skirt on: April 16, 2005 06:01:00 PM
Well, I've been registered for a while, but since then, been too lazy to finish making anything. But thought I should really post something.

So, here's the first thing I made. I made it last year or the year before.

You can't really see the pleats in the picture because I remember when I was making this, I spent ages working out where to pleat the fabric so the pattern matched up!!

I mananaged to make it a few sizes too big though. Oops! I think I measured an existing skirt and worked out the measurements to use from that, not very well obviously.
To remedy this, I sewed one of the pleats on top of the next one (if that made any sense) to take it in a few inches which worked quite well.

Something went a bit wrong with the zip situation but it functions.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Has anyone used Dylon fabric colour stripper? on: March 30, 2005 12:40:40 PM
This one...


It says it strips up to 2.5kg of fabric in one go, but I only want to strip one small skirt! (It's red, want to dye it black but don't want it to go burgundy.) So I don't think I need to use anywhere near the whole packet.

But... the instructions say 'the full contents of the box must always be used'. Does anyone know why this is? Do the chemicals start reacting with the air once it's opened or something or do dylon just want to sell more product?
