21  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / HP emblems on: July 19, 2014 08:53:52 PM
Hi all,

I'm on a quest to figure out the perfect upcycle finish of a Lane cedar chest I rescue from the garbage last year. 

One option I have in mind (truly the most epic) is to make a Harry Potter chest.  I would like to put the Hogwarts emblem and each of the houses in full colour on the sides (maybe the top).  That would mean the chest would be stained first, then the emblems put on (they won't be painstakingly painted for sure!) then some sort of resilient top coat.

Any recommendations on how to do the image on the chest?  I would like the gold to be gold... and the rest to be full colour.

Thanks!

I really like these.  I need something like this for using the computer.  My hands are always cold.

I have a question though - I have big arms, how tight are they?  Should I adjust the pattern?

Ok two questions... at the top on the arm, does it roll down?  I'm wondering about finishing it like the finger area. 

I sound like I know what Im' doing but it will be a total novice adventure.

Your cable sweater is amazing.  The way the cables flow really flatter the female figure.

I love the hat too,

Hi all,

hope this is in the right place.

I bought a big wolverine poster (4x6') and thought it was going to be adhesive.  Its not.  Its a picture quality paper (nice and thick) and comes with 3M strips to hang it.  I was going to use it as a headboard and using the strips just won't work for that.

I would rather adhere it to the wall.  i was wondering if someone can recommend the right product and method. Obviously I don't want it to fall and dont want it super permanent either!

Thanks!

Hi all,

My son just turned 1.  he's going through the 'i dont' want it' phase even for stuff he used to love.  I'm a vegetarian and he is too but he has a milk allergy.  So I'm raising him vegan.

I'm an amateur cook at best (but rock at baking!) and could really use some advice on meals for him.  I need to get some beans, nut butters (little nervous about the possibility of a reaction), grains, etc. in his diet daily.  Now he still relies on soy formula (since he won't eat right) and a few staples like cereal.

I would love to hear your recommendations for toddler meals!

Thanks in advance!

I know about 8 pregnant people right now and am on mat leave myself with a 5 month old.  Surprisingly, I was able  to complete a quilt.  Its a chunky modern quilt and I love modern but always feel guilty if its not intricate.  its like I'm cheating. 

Anyway, I had this panel of 8 animals and it was too much for one quilt.  I had a hard time coming up with a pattern for a rectangular quilt (my brain always seems to turn out square baby quilts o_O).  Finally, MareMare provided the answer

I have the second quilt to finish.  Up to the top and the back being done, they were done in tandem.  But the first shower was coming up so I had to get one done.  Now I need to muster the patience for the second (I'm not one for repeating the same work twice).

The second is the same pattern with different animals. Wish I did more quilting but until plan that better, this is all she gets!

Thoughts?
