1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / newsprint paper mache costume on: November 02, 2006 03:42:18 PM


start with an old tshirt and some duct tape. I used a method for making a custom dressform. I wrapped duct tape around my torso, on top of the tshirt, for the bodice. my boyfriend helped me wrap the tape and also cut the finished "mold" off. he cut straight up the middle of the back. then I put the mold on my dress form, and sewed it back together. I applied paper mache (strips of newspaper held together with flour and water) over the duct tape. after a couple of days and thourough drying (it's humid here, it takes forever)

 I finished the surface folded strips of newspaper applied vertically with a glue and water wash. after I finished, I applied a sparkly water color wash to make it pretty. once dried, I used a seamripper and scissors to remove the stitching that held the corset in place on the dressform. then I put in the rivets and lacing. for the skirt, I folded the remainder of my newspaper and scrunched up the edges for volume.

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / screen printing on plexi-glass on: April 15, 2005 12:20:17 PM
I'm experimenting with layering over my photos. this is my first time printing on plexi-glass. I used speedball acrylic, not meant for plexi per say, but I got good results. however, it scrapes easily.
now I'm working on a whole series
