2661  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Go go Spiderman and Mario T-Shirts! on: August 14, 2011 06:21:20 PM
It was my nephew's 6th birthday party today.  Along w/ a cake, I also made him two shirts w/ a couple of his favorite subjects on them.  I did the freezer paper method of stenciling.  The first that I made was Spiderman, using a pictures I found on the interwebs. 


I unfortunately didn't take any progress shots of this one.  I did three layers of stenciling.  I did the red first, then blue, then black.  I added in the details (including all the spiderwebs) by hand w/ a paint brush. 

I did, thankfully, get progress shots of the Mario shirt.  For the Mario shirt, I had Mario coming out of a warp pipe from the bottom of the shirt.  I, again, found my images online.
I started w/ the pipe.


So the first layer was regular green and the second layer of stenciling was a lighter green for shading.


Here is what it looked like w/ the two colors.


Next I put on the black outlines.  Afterwards, I cleaned it up a bit w/ the stenciling.  The layers get a little messy when they are applied on top of each other, but they are easily fixed.

Next was mario!  I didn't really have a clear way of adding the layers.  I kinda just cut out the layers as I thought fit, and not in certain blocks of colors like I normally do. 


I started out w/ Mario's hat, boots, mustache and side burn.  Next was the white on his hat, his top white glove, overalls, and the soles of his boots.


Then I added his mouth, shirt, and buttons.  The next layer was the M on his hat, his skin, and the bottom glove. 


I then did a stencil for the thick layer of black that went all the way around Mario, and I didn't take a picture of that step.  Afterwards, I added the rest of the black details on Mario's body by hand and cleaned up any of the areas that needed cleaning up.


TADA!  Mario shirt!  (yes, I did hum the Mario theme song to myself as I made this.)

Thanks for looking!

Ok, my lovely partner BirdBones told me to go ahead and post pictures of what I sent her, even though they haven't made it to her (after 4+ weeks now) and inquires into the post office haven't yielded any luck.  I will send her another package, hopefully soon.  But here is what I originally sent her:


Meet Frederick, a friend monster.  ^_^  He probably ended up being around 4" tall.  His wings were lined w/ pipe cleaners so that they could be adjustable.


And his sister!  (I don't remember what I name her).  I got a little better at doing the wings the second time around.




The entire package (less some fruit rollups, because I couldn't get them all to fit.  ^_^).  I made her a couple flower hair clips and a necklace for our personal swap.

I received this card from Jillybeans its striders knife from the lord of the rings! Its awesome!!! Also the background is a page from the lord of the rings itself! (I hope the book survived! Cheesy) Its shiny and very awesome thanks for sending me such a great piece of art! It will start my knife atc collection out nicely!

The book was falling apart before I decided to craft with it.  Of course I didn't throw it away, and I had been saving it for an occasion in which I could incorporate it into something.  We have another copy of the book in our shelf, this was just a very VERY old and battered one that was being used as a wedge to hold up our old computer.  lol  (sacrilege?  a little, yeah)

I'm glad you like it!

teehee that flying "appliance" is too funny!  And ABC's of a kitty's life!  What a cute theme!  I'm totally missing all of the new themes people are coming up with. 

I'm lurking, since I'm not actually in this swap.  ^_^  I hope September will be less crazy so I can join again.

Here is the whole package of hair accessory goodness!


A headband, scrunchies, and a hair clip and bobbies!  YAY YAY!

First off, my favorite item:

A headband covered in batik fabric!  oooOoooo!


A felt flower hair clippy!  The colors remind me of spring.


Crocheted (?) scrunchies!  I love the variegated colors!


Another flower hair clippy!  Totally cute!


And flower bobbies! 

Yay yay!  Thanks for the wonderful package, zigg13pra!  I hope yours makes it to you soon.  It said it was suppose to get there today, but USPS didn't post that it was delivered, so hopefully tomorrow.

2670  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Zelda and Mario Stitch Markers on: August 10, 2011 04:02:28 PM
I tried my hand w/ Fimo clay for my swap partner in the Video Game Swap.  She requested stitch markers for knitting.  What nerd is complete without a set of nerdy stitch markers for nerdy knitty?  Well she is definitely complete now! 

Ocarinas from Zelda and Mushrooms from Mario!


The ocarinas ended up having a lot of fingerprint ridges, and I wasn't sure what to do with that.  I guess I could have sanded them down, but I didn't, since they were so small.  I painted them w/ regular acrylic paint and added a clear coat to them afterwards. 





Thanks for looking!
