1) Making a stencil - I cannot find freezer paper in this area to save my life. Any other options out there? (A clean image...is what I'm looking for.)
2) What medium do you suggest? - I have black acrylic paint, and the jacket top is synthetic as well. I plan to heat set it, or am I going to get a crinkled look? (The last top I made had that weathered look to it.)
3) I'm making a top for a broadway party - going as Rizzo from Grease, but need the font for both the name piece and the cursive font for the back. "Pink Ladies"...
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!
So, I'm heading to Anime North...and I'm going as a crafter's corner person (I can't afford to not do this without it...) Most of my stuff is going to be stamping stuff (Flamel's logo, MK logo, whatever).
So, I'm carving away like mad to start my stock. Just now, I made three Flamel's logo from FMA.
- how do you guys/gals package your stuff for craft shows? (I'm thinking polybag with an insert) - how do you guys set a price point on your work? - what usually sells the fastest? - how do you attract customers?
