1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / That's What She Said Stenciled T-Shirt on: March 04, 2011 01:46:32 AM
As I said in my previous post ("Geek In The Pink...") this was done for a friend from high school.  This was actually the requested t-shirt that lead to the other.  I'm sure it's been done tons of times before by now but I actually think he used to use this phrase in high school which was long before "The Office" came out.  I saw one of these in an ad back in August though and told him I could make him one a lot cheaper and just as good.
If I'm remembering correctly, I used a pearl white soft paint on this one with a stencil that was a pain to cut out.  Font turned out nice, but not easy to deal with.  Ended up taking about an hour or so to do the cut outs for it in the end.  I remember having two white paints sitting there and I think I finally decided that the pearl would look prettier (even though it was for a guy).  I've already shipped them off to him so I can't look back at it.   Undecided
Thanks for looking!
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Geek In The Pink (Jason Mraz) Stenciled T-Shirt on: March 04, 2011 01:35:11 AM
A high school friend and I were talking about t-shirts and I volunteered to make him one.  That quickly turned into two when we were on the phone while I was shopping (AC Moore's $2 t-shirt sale) via phone and I found this pink.  He jumped all over the idea....as long as I was willing to come up with a design, make up the stencil, paint the shirt and eventually ship it to him.  All of which, I agreed to do.
I used a light pink soft paint with a freezer stencil.  It did take a couple of coats...but with working on two, I was able to switch back and forth.  I did learn - the hard way - that my little Tulip mini craft iron is NOT hot enough to iron freezer paper onto t-shirts.  Next time I will carry my heavier model.  (I had gone along with a friend to their office to utilize larger surfaces - thus the cubicle wall seen in the photo where I hung them to dry for the afternoon!)
Thanks for looking!
