11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / One can never have enough Batman undies on: September 23, 2012 02:37:32 AM
I've been rewatching Batman Beyond, plus I just bought some plain undies, so I was inspired to stencil some of them, since my previous Batman panties are my absolute favourite and always put me in a better mood when I wear them.



And so, Nightwing and Batman Beyond-style undies were created \o/



I used acrylic paints, since those worked really well the last time - they get a little faded and grungy when washed a few times, and I love the effect. The Nightwing ones went without a hitch and were finished in twenty minutes flat, the other ones were a bit of a problem because it took a million layers for the color to show properly, and that creates a bit of a problem when lifting the cardboard stencil. But they turned out all right in the end, and now I have kickass panties!

Thanks, guys! Yeah, it's subtle and elegant but still makes an impact, I have half a mind to do it to all my furniture Tongue

The past few months have been really busy, as summer always is, what with exams and me starting to work on my thesis. So I haven't been crafting much, but I saw this link on Pinterest (as you do), and I just HAD to do something similar. I've been meaning to update my bedroom furniture for a while now, so I picked my night table to experiment on.



I used a completely different kind of sheet music for each drawer - pages from a hymnal that I got in a Craftster swap with the wonderful malmow, sheet music that I got from another swap with Sajona, and a couple pages from an old solfege book from my music-learning days.



I dismantled the drawers of my night table, then I tore up the sides of the pages and crumpled them up a little, glued them on the drawers, and when they dried, I used watercolors to make the pages look even more aged and yellowed.



Here is a close-up of the middle drawer, made with the pages from the hymnal.

Thanks, guys!

Diamantyna, yeah, these are really stretchy so you really don't have to make them as big as you think you need to Tongue Also, I actually knitted those on straight needles and sewed them up later, because I can't for the life of me knit tightly in the round.

I made this little guy for my friend's birthday that was a couple weeks ago. He uses this picture A LOT as his avatar:



so I thought I'd go about recreating it in reality. (I'm sorry that I have no credit for this icon, if you've made it or know who has, please let me know!) The first thing I got excited about knitting the little scarf (which is ironic because it ended up being the thing I hated making the most), and I contemplated various ways of making the body and violin. I was all prepared to make it all out of clay, but then it hit me. Paper mache!



I used newspaper and painter's tape for the basic silhouette, which took about three hours overall while I rewatched the Sound of Music with a friend, then I put on about four layers of PVA glue mixed with water, and paper towels, which took about three days to allow for drying time. I used pipe cleaners for the fingers and the violin's bow.



Why hello there. The little coat is hand-sewn using felt. The violin's strings are fishing line. I used gouache to paint and shade him, and then glazed him. I was a little nervous, because I had never shaded a 3D object before, but it turned out alright.



The little scarf was so tedious, and I ended up being frustrated and having loose ends poking all over the place because there were so many of them and I just had no patience. So the scarf is a little bit crap, but shhh, don't look too closely at it.



Overall, I think this entire thing took about... thirty hours of work, maybe, not counting waiting time. But it was worth it, and it was one of the most fun projects I've worked on in a while!

There are more pictures and more rambling about this project on my blog, check it out if you can handle a LOT of rambling indeed Smiley
