Thanks for all the compliments guys! I get a lot of questions on how to do the dress form, so if you want more help on that, there are tons of good posts out there. It's just a duct tape form like everyone else's, I just covered mine in paper mache. I'll try to help with questions about the top though, so feel free to ask.

heh, thanks. Only problem now is that it's way too freakin' cold out to wear it anywhere. Now it just sits in my closet, so unloved.

Wow, totally not what I expected! It's great! I'm so glad you finally posted the finished project, I was still curious as to what you were going to do. Awesome job!

you can make french toast.
French toast was invented for the specific purpose of using stale bread instead of throwing it away! Alton Brown of the TV show Good Eats talks about it and even gives an authentic recipe- chech out foodtv's website.

If it doesn't thicken up, try using cornstarch. Do some in a cup first to figure out the proper ratio and whatnot. Be sure to mix it super well! No one like little white chunks in their paint.

What do you use to keep the front part stiff?

I don't know about thining it out, I mena, that would make it more runny. and runny paint usually makes blurry lines or goes under the stencil. I would use a thicker consistancy. Like, the consistancy of acrylic paint in the fancy expensive tube. I would probably do the stencil with an up and down motion with a foam spong thing, and do it really slowly. Other than that, I don't know. I've only done a super large stencil once (about 5 feet each side) and I could only get crisp lines with spraypaint, but then the paint wasn't strong enough.  Undecided

I suggest first using a spray adhesive. If you're super sensitive, get someone to spray it outside for you. Do that on the back of your stencil, lay it down where you want, and I suggest a foam sponge thingie made especially for wall stenciling (ask somebody in home depot). then, if you want a smoother texture, lightly roll over it. I strongly- no, make that: strongly insist that you use spray adhesive. Then it won't move and you'll get crisper lines.

Great stencil! It looks like something you'd see on threadless or in a store. But then again, people who buy shirts they can make probably aren't the kind to read the likes of Dante.
