1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Stenciling in eXtreme Heat?!? on: June 26, 2005 06:34:03 PM
I finally made the boondock saints shirt on here.  The front turned out fine- little bit of bleeding but not much.
The back looks awful!  The text that I painstakingly cut out for hours & then re-did it anyways, bled horribly!!!!  So the question is....... Did this happen b/c it's 90* in the house today?   2nd question:  black shirt, white paint, if i paint over the white text with black, how noticeable will that be?  could i then re-do the text on a cooler day?
someone, please tell me that this shirt isn't ruined?!?!

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My praises to Zombie Teeth on: June 13, 2005 06:43:09 AM
Praises to Zombie Teeth because every time I had a question about how-to, she'd already answered it somewhere on the boards.  Thanks!  Yesterday I made my first attempt at stencilling!  I was feeling pretty impatient because I still hadn't found freezer paper so I used card stock instead.  I just made a quick & easy stencil since it was my first time & all.  Well, I stencilled the shirt, life got busy & I completely forgot to take the stencil off until this morning.  It was stuck.  I got most of it off, but will the small bits of paper come off in the wash (pic 3)? 
I chose gnarly because my boyfriend has been saying it 20 or so times a day for the last couple of weeks & it is beginning to drive me crazy!  Oh, & I found freezer paper last night so now I can get started on the 3 shirts I'm making him for Father's Day.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Yarn Substitution Help Please on: June 06, 2005 02:20:58 PM
I have a pattern that calls for this yarn or equivalent:  http://www.yarns-and.com/ClassicElite/CEflash.htm  So how do I know what size that is so I can substitute it?  I don't know how to determine if it's fingering, sport, worsted weight, etc.  I'm stumped.  What do I do?

4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Father's Day Soap: packaging question on: May 31, 2005 11:13:15 AM
Here's the MP soap I made for just about every dad I know.  I used the recipe found here: 
http://www.soapdelicatessen.com/soapmaking/soaprecipe/meltandpour/peanut/ but modified it a bit.  So any suggestions on how to wrap them?  Since it's durn near edible I thought packaging it like food might be cute.  Not sure how, though.  Any thoughts?  Thanks.


5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Shea Butter on: May 18, 2005 02:32:40 PM
Other than online, does anyone know where to buy shea butter?  I don't even know what types of stores would possibly carry it. 

6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Boondock Saints Stencil Help Please on: May 16, 2005 06:27:55 PM
I absolutely love the Boondock Saints shirt that roxy nova posted.  My SO is a huge fan so I thought it would make the perfect father's day gift.  To the back of the shirt, I wanted to add the cross from their rosary (seen here:  http://www.theboondocksaints.com/store/category.cfm?Category=17.)  I can't find a similar stencil, though.  Anyone know any great sites that have Celtic cross stencils?  Thanks.

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Fabric Paint??? on: May 16, 2005 10:42:31 AM
What is fabric paint???
I've never stenciled before but decided to give it a go.  I went to my local craft store for fabric paint, but not sure if I found the right stuff.  It was sold as dimensional or 3D paint.  That's "puff paint" right?  I want something that will go on flat.  If I use a roller to apply this paint will it work or is it the wrong stuff entirely?  Huh

thanks, alicia
8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / MP Soap Recipe Help Please on: May 03, 2005 10:38:00 AM
I made my first mp soap over the weekend.  I used the craft store stuff & made avocado cucumber soap with chamomile & cucumber melon scent, and olive oil soap with chamomile & green tea scent.  It was fun, turned out fine.  For Father's Day I'd like to make some sort of coffee layered soap, I found this recipe:  http://www.fromnaturewithlove.com/recipe/recipe.asp?recipe_id=328.  Sounds great but could I add coffee grounds instead of cocoa powder?  If so used or unused grounds?  Advice please.  Thanks.
