1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Joker T-shirt on: July 21, 2008 12:11:54 PM
thats awesome. Was the lettering stenciled as well or did you do it freehand?

It's stenciled...I just put down a base of white and let it dry before I put the red on top.  For some reason the white bled under a little bit while the red didn't.

My boyfriend and I made matching joker shirts last night after seeing The Dark Knight.  I only got a picture of mine, but I'm wicked proud of it so I just HAD to post.  The glossy-finish paint doesn't really show it's true colors in the picture, the hair and eyes are nice and vibrant in person.  I think I've finally figured out how to get stencils to show up on black t-shirts...hurray!!!

Thanks for Looking!!!  Grin

I was just coming by for my last minute "what do i get the boy for valentine's day" inspirations...when I see my cube in featured projects.  Awesome, I had no idea!  I'm glad so many people like it and as soon as my college workload slows down, there will be a tute! Wink

That... is totally amazing.  I've been thinking about making a little mini companion cube... but that freaking ROCKS!  Just... don't throw it in an incinerator, ok?  (note: that part took me forever to do, because by that point I'd been literally talking to it... I was distraught.)

I promise that I won't let my boyfriend incinerate it!

I started talking to it when it was about half finished...my little sister named him 'Cubart' Grin

oh my, that's amazing. I'm making one right now.. but mine is only 6"! A tutorial would be nice! I was wondering how you did the corners. It looks like you machine appliqued everything but I don't get if you put it together first and then did the applique work or the other way around. Great job!

I did the appliqueing on the faces of the cube before I put it together, simply because I couldn't imagine trying to get the complete cube to cooperate with my machine.

Truly awesome - what are the dimensions?  Would also love to know how you did it ... my boyfriend's birthday is coming up and I think he'd love one.

Mine is about 21x21x21.  I actually looked at those exact foam ottomans before I started the project, but I felt that it had to be big enough to serve as a chair as well.  I think turning one of those ottomans into a companion cube would probably yield a very nice result; It's what I would have done if I hadn't gone for the extreme life-sized version.

That's wonderful! Very well done. Is it comfy?

It feels like a giant firm pillow. I think it would make a great gaming chair or footrest.

Hahaha, yes! A cake! For Valentine's Day, that is a wonderful idea, tied-in-knots.

That companion cube is awesome. This makes me want to play Portal again (actually, I mostly watched my boyfriend play it...so fun...and funny...XD).

You did a REALLY good job. Mind sharing how you went about doing it? I would love love love to make one...and cherish it...

I took step by step pictures of the entire process, so if you'd like, I could probably write a how-to.  It's a really long project with a lot of little details, but now that it's finished, it feels totally worth it.

The cake is a great idea for a valentine's day gift!  I think that's what I'll do! Wink

Oh my god! Good job, it looks perfect. Whats inside? And is the zipper to remove the outer covering?

Thanks. Smiley  I tried really hard to hide any mistakes I made since it's a gift and all!

It's stuffed with about 11 pounds of fiberfil.  The light gray areas are padded with foam so they stick out a lil more.  I added the zipper so I can change the stuffing and clean the outside covering.  I'm guessing I'll need to add more fluff once people start sitting on it and squishing it.  Later down the road when I have some money, I might want to just buy the boyfriend a nice big cube of foam to stick inside it.

It's been ages since my last post, but I'm really proud of this one.  It's a late Christmas present for my boyfriend.  I actually started it in the middle of December but just finished it this morning .  I'll try to get some better pics with his camera after he unwraps it:P.

Thanks so much for looking, It's good to be back. Grin

I made these for my sister's 14th b-day.  I looked for a tutorial, but I couldn't find anything other than directions for covering an existing slappy bracelet.  And then I had the bright idea to destroy my dad's tape measure and these suckers were born! Grin
Thanks for looking!
