Is there anything current going on?
Also, anyone know about sewing classes (preferable free) in the rochester area?
I inherited a Singer and have no idea how to use it but would love to start modding my own clothes.
Thanks!

Hi.

It's been a while.  But it's also gift-giving season and I decided to make all my gifts this year.  Here are my two stencil'd gifts.

First - A simple two-layer stencil of a Goonies image I found online.  Done on paper with acrylic paint and freezer paper.  Friend loved it and had never heard of stencilry.



Catch up, Data.


Second - A scene from "Spirited Away".  This is 3-layers on vinyl (Olivia Newton-John).  This was my second experience with spray-paint and also with vinyl.  It was my first experience with spray adhesive.  I'm pleased with how it came out but it could've been better.  I also used sharpie on the soot-balls.



Sorry about the blurrrrrr.



I think the grey was enamel based.  Lesson learned.



Tips/tricks/secret codez
-I used manila folders for my stencils.  They worked very well.
-Spray adhesive is wonderful.  But it's friggin' deadly.  Use it outside.  Also: let it dry on the stencil for 2-3 minutes until it's tacky, not wet.  Then slap it on whatever.  Do this too soon and it will leave residue on whatever you put it on.  Or it will rip the paint off.
-Let each layer dry 1+ hour.  Bake apple crisp while you do this.  It's delicious.

That's it!
Enjoy the holidays dudez.




4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / help with covering up print on blanket on: January 16, 2007 07:13:52 AM
So my girlfriend wants a sweatshirt blanket (those blankets made from the same material that sweatshirts are made of).  Now the only place that carries them around here is the college i used to attend.  So on the blanket it reads "Fredonia State" across the middle.  She doesn't attend Fredonia, so I want to cover up this somehow.  I was considering stitching fabric over it to make a design but i'm not that good at stitching. and short of a design idea. 

anyone?

hi.
it's been a week or two, but i'm back.
here's a new one that's a gift for a friend.

i took the dinosaur from stencilry.org.
everything else i designed on my own.
i'm somewhat pleased with how this turned out.
the dinosaur came out a bit messy and i put him
a bit higher than i should've, but oh well.
could i get some feedback on that? thanks.

actually i usually ask the person to give me a shirt to stencil on.
just because if i buy a shirt, i'm never sure if it'll fit correctly.
however, i've heard nothing but good about
american apparel.
www.americanapparelstore.com.
it's sweat-shop free, tons of colors, etc etc.
