1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Silkscreen gel??? on: July 09, 2005 07:53:52 AM
I was watching Crafters Coast To Coast and they showed this lady silkscreening with this gel stuff. Basically it was two layers, a green one and a clear one. She cut away the spots on the green layer that she wanted the ink to go through and then applied lacquer thinner which disolved the clear layer and attached the green layer to the screen. I searched online for vinyl-based silkscreen gel (which is what she called it) and the only thing that comes up is the website for that episode of the show.

Has anybody heard of this stuff? It seems so much simpler than other silkscreening techniques.
2  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Question about Spark on: June 30, 2005 01:49:04 PM
So I'm moving to back to Boston in the fall, and getting an apartment either in Davis Square or Central Square. I've been reading about Spark at http://www.sparkcrafts.com. My question is this: Are there any men there? Are men even allowed? They always refer to it as a place where women can go and do crafts. It seems like a such a great idea, but I wouldn't want to bother if I thought I wouldn't be welcome for some reason.

And now I have the shirt to prove it:

I got the image from http://www.brandonbird.com/lno_color.html. It's a Law and Order coloring book and has lots of great high contrast images of Jerry Orbach, Sam Waterson, S. Epatha Merkerson, Angie Harmon, Benjamin Bratt. It's perfect for the aspring Law and Order stenciler.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Big Man Knitting Patterns on: June 21, 2005 09:21:37 PM
Okay, so I'm just getting into knitting. Now we all know that most of the patterns out there are for women. But even the men's pattterns out there are for smaller men than I am. FOR EXAMPLE: the mittens pattern that came in my beginner book is for hands that are over an inch shorter than mine. I'm 6'6" and I want to knit myself some stuff, but I don't want to be relegated to the land of hats and scarves. I'm big (read: tall and average build, not fat) and I need some big man patterns! Who will help me?
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / my first 2 stencils! on: June 12, 2005 07:28:34 PM
Two stencils. The first is a picture of my friend Bengali

The second is a tribute to the late Mitch Hedburg. It's hard to read in the picture, but it says "Yoplait, Fruit on the Bottom, Hope on top"

The colors are screwed up in the picture too, as the Bengali shirt is supposed to be red on yellow and the Yoplait shirt is red on black.
