71  Pretty Ravenclaw rubber stamp! in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by astrangeone on: March 22, 2010 05:11:01 PM


This was a custom stamp request from a friend.  Think I did the Ravenclaw house justice?  Smiley  (I'm a Hufflepuff, I promise!)

It's about 1.3 X 1.5 inches.

I got a wrapped package in Muggle mail!  It had decorations on it, and was wrapped in lovely brown kraft paper.

Apparently, I misplaced my wand when I was at Hogwarts!  Professor Sprout saved it for me and sent it through muggle mail!

It's case:


The Hogwarts Letter (signed by Professor Sprout!) & Wand:


The text of the letter:
Dear Miss ______,
It seems that I have found your wand, once again, in the mandrake roots next to the whomping willow last night.

I will ask that in the future, you keep a closer eye on it, I have done something a little special so that you can find it at night as well.  Hold me up to the light then when the lights go out it will never be lost.

Yours truly,
Professor Pomona Sprout

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, irish_chicky!  I loved the stickers on the package.  Cheesy  I now will cosplay as a random Hogwarts student in the future with this wand.

It is also soaking up some rays right now.  Thank you!  You have made my 1st swap a great one!

Nice stuff, everyone!

I've been itching to post this:



Hufflepuff Stamp!  It's just something I whipped up for a fellow fan.  (I want to keep it - it's probably my most detailed stamp ever.)

Darn it.

Hope to see more of your HP themed crafts.  (*finds HP steak sauce in the cabinet...hmmmm*)

75  Ah, the wonders of insomnia...for stamp carving! (Mini Tutorial Included) in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by astrangeone on: March 05, 2010 07:05:47 AM


Made with a "for big mistakes eraser", plus a speedball carver.  Acetone transfer (had to desaturate and print in high quality mode.)  Inspired by a piece I had to do for the One Tiny Harry Potter Thing swap!

Tutorial for Acetone Transfer:

Materials Needed:
-  nail polish remover (acetone - I like the lemon cutex, it doesn't smell like ass)
-  an old laser printer
-  good paper

Fiddle with settings.  I like to desaturate colored pictures - the original Hufflepuff house logo was in color - gold and black.  Desaturation takes it to black and white and shades of grey.

Print on normal paper.  Print at the highest quality.  Cut out the image, and place on carving medium/eraser.

Fully drench the image with acetone.  Working quickly, press down on it hard to get the image transferred.  Check image, and if the paper dries too quickly, add more acetone to the area.  (I like to use paper towel, it captures most of the run off and you can use it for a couple more presses.)

Carving:
-  don't carve too deeply - you can always go over the thing again
-  for tight corners you can always do two cuts
-  for smaller cuts, you can do shallower cuts
-  for small areas, you can approach from two angles (like the claws on this stamp) --> the tool tends to skip on smaller areas

76  Stamped Envelopes! Water lilies! in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by astrangeone on: February 22, 2010 12:02:08 PM


I had a cute, hand made stamp - and decided to make this.  It took a couple of tries to find my pencil crayons.  *eyeroll*

78  Rubber Stamp Carving Binge! in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions by astrangeone on: February 04, 2010 10:17:22 PM

Stamps!

So, in a fit of boredom, I've taken up carving stamps.  The two chinese ones read: "tae ma die" ("**** your mother), and a rather drab "love" one.  The one under the chinese swear word is "operation beautiful.com" - my reason for getting into carving.  It's addictive; even if I have to clean up a shed load of eraser shavings!

79  Chibi Pyramid Head, now with bloodstains! in Halloween Costumes by astrangeone on: November 01, 2009 09:20:27 PM
Helm:  Foam board + cardboard at the back.  Bits and bobs are water bottles and other things.

Apron/Shirt:  Shirt is repurposed tee shirt with tea stains and acyrlic paint as the bloodstains.  (Large red handprint on the back of the shirt.)  Apron is broadcloth distressed with dirt and tea.  Same blood stains.

Gauze:  medical gauze soaked with fake blood (corn syrup, chocolate syrup, food coloring) and dried again.

Pants:  plain black pants.

This was fun to wear, plus I had a lot of fun making it!  Cheesy  The helm took all summer to design (maybe about 1 month), and the apron and shirt took me about 1 day to repurpose.  The next challenge is making the great knife (oversized meat cleaver) that the character carries.

Too bad a lot of college kids didn't play the game...

80  Pyramid Head/Red Pyramid Head Thing - Completed, no blood! in Halloween Costumes by astrangeone on: October 13, 2009 09:14:00 AM


Ulterior Motive:  Didn't want to do anything "sexy" for the frat boys on campus.  So, went with scary and different.

Okay - I went with the look from the videogame - a shorter helmet (the one in the movie looks like it drapes down to the wearer's chest).

No gloves, and no great knife (because it would be clubbing).  No blood yet because of the fact that my blood is the edible kind (corn syrup + chocolate syrup + food coloring).  The apron needs to be distressed and made to look old.

I will also be binding the twins (stupid giant boobies! tape and a sports bra), wearing shoulder pads in my underwear and a packing dildo.  It's full on drag without the facial hair and stuff.

Sorry about the quality of the photo.  I suck at taking pictures!

Props:  dismembered hand + bloody machete
