So, I discovered the style of Pastel Goth and I really want to include some of that in my currant wardrobe. I started with vest and that's where I have messed up. For starters, I took a thrifted vest and didn't read the wash instructions. the actual dye turned out alright, but then I learned the vest is dry clean only. So when I attempted to dry clean it with an at home kit, the cleaner cloth clung to the vest and created a huge splotch. Now I'm just experimenting with it to see if I can fall in love with it again.
I tried using the RIT Dye fixative stuff to soften the edges of the splotch and that worked pretty well.
But the question becomes, how to I fix the center of the splotch? any ideas?
this is how it looks right now:
And this the close up of the splotch remains:
I'll be adding spikes and studs to the collar, just as an aside.
So, I bought a pair of leather pants, the leather feels extremely thin and soft (Like amazingly soft), to make into a bodice. Then someone mentioned that leather requires all these special tools im order to work it. I have a little sewing machine, it serves me pretty well considering the machine's quality. But I'm wondering if the leather will be safe if i just force in through the machine anyway. The pretty side of the leather won't be touching the dogger feet, therefore won't be damaged.
Will a machine cope though? Or should I start counting my pennies for all those special tools even though I'm sure I'll never use leather again?
This was an assignment from my senior year of High School, from portfolio developement. It's nothing but words. Words written over and over and over again until I felt them engraved into my being.
It's an ink drawing (maybe it's a writing?) i didn't measure it but it's somewhere around 12x16. The words are loneliness, cold, dismal, alone, companionless, etc...All the words reflect the emotion of loneliness.
Comments and Critiques appreciated <3
EDIT: Here's the closeup it may still hard to see but that actually now has more to do with the amount of words on top of each other and how terrible my handwriting is.
For the currant drawing I'm working on, I want to have monsters under a bed in the back ground. However, as previously mentioned, I misplaced my monsters. Not misplaced like i had references and lost those...I actually lost their place in the drawing. But I still want them.
The drawing is (so far) a figure holding a fake flower while sitting amongst paper flowers. The drawing and I are arguing. I think the drawing doesn't want the monsters, but I'm not sure that the meaning will get across without the monsters. Sooo....The question becomes is there a way for monsters to be there without being a monster? Or should i tell the drawing to get over its attitude and accept the monsters?
Thank you in advance for any and all advice <3 ~Aryante
So I made a couple ami but I lost interest in reading patterns really quickly I also wanted a ball joint doll, however that tis a bit expensive for me. With a combination of these situations, I made stuff up while crocheting and this is what happpened:
She stands about 9inchs. Made for worsted weight and her dress is crocheted embroidery floss. However, that's not her wig That's her friend's wig, she'll be posted soon hopefully
To show the ball joint in her head
Eventually, I'll get some pipe cleaners to assist the joints in her limbs
I just completed my portfolio development at my school, however several pieces have yet to be completed. Usually I wouldn't be bothered by this; however, my art teacher informed me during the portfolio review that i will have to display all the work from the class in the art show.
But I'm not motivated in the slightest to finish any of these pieces.
So I'm curious to know if anyone is unmotivated to finish their pieces as well and how they correct that behavior.
only problem is that it's midnight, everything's closed, and i get to school at like 6:30am when no one's open yet; so i can't go buy face sparkles...but i really really want to include some sort of sparkle. Any suggests on how to achieve the sparkles without using my friend's suggestion of nail polish? (Which i do already know that nail polish is a rather terrible idea)
Any and all help is greatly appreicated <3 <3 Aryante
