1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / HELP! What do to with a round metal tin on: October 08, 2006 08:29:17 AM
I have had a beautiful round metal tin with a lid staring me in the face for the past week, but I can't think for the life of me how to decorate it.

I want to fill it with chocolates and have a sort of nice label or something on the top, but I do NOT want it looking like a possible wedding favor. Maybe something sort of old fashioned? The thing is, I'm running desperately out of time. I only have a few days left to complete anything!

Some info:

- This is for a man
- This is a "just because/thank you" gift to show how awesome he is

Can anyone help me out? Thanks much! Smiley

Is there any way to make a transfer look "distressed" (without ruining it too much) to make it look like all of those "oldie" type 80's tees that are out these days?

Sorry if this has been asked 5 million times before.  Embarrassed

If anyone can direct me to a tutorial I'd be extremely grateful. Smiley

I've found using dark t-shirt transfers on white shirts works even better (Avery are my favorite.) I've given up those horrible white t-shirt transfers forever! No matter how hard I tried, they always cracked the moment I put the shirt over my head!  Undecided

I've done a few goofs on dark shirts where I just print out the same thing and iron it over the top of the goofed bit. It worked for me, but I'm not sure how it would look on a white shirt. Might still be able to be saved! Smiley

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Many Moods of Dr. Herbert West shirt on: March 08, 2006 07:08:52 PM
This is my most ambitious project to date, mostly because of all the planning. Every square is a separate piece, including the text above.

I did 3 "passes" on the shirt - 1st 2 rows + lettering, then next 2 rows, then last row, letting each "pass" cool before moving on - which made it easier to set up, but it still took longer than anything else I've made. It was a labour of absolute love, so I enjoyed every minute. Cheesy

And here is the final product:



For anyone who doesn't know, Dr. Herbert West is the "mad scientist" from the Re-Animator series of films, played by one of my favorite men in the universe, Jeffrey Combs.  Cheesy

This is going to be proudly worn at the horror cons I'm attending later this year. Cheesy

Thanks both of you. Smiley I'm loving it more everytime I wear it. I think I need to make a second one.

Phew. This took me forever! I did the photos and text as separate pieces and for me, who can't see in straight lines, it took what seemed like lifetimes to line everything up. I love the final product though.

The "mad scientists" are all my new favorite actor, Jeffrey Combs in his many incarnations of Dr. West and Dr. Ek. Smiley

Cool shirts. Smiley

As for getting the right "height" for a transfer on a shirt, I always measure against my store-bought graphic tees and then do a test with a template in the mirror to see if it's too high. Anything an inch and a half below the middle of the neckline on a shirt is usually okay, but I usually go 2-3 inches below. I also measure from side to side to get the transfer centred on the shirt. I've had goofs where the transfer is way too far over on one side of the shirt. Hope this helps! Smiley
