1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Reflective Ink? on: December 21, 2007 02:18:31 PM
Ello peeps,

- any DIY-Supplier that sells reflective screen-printable ink in household-sizes
- dito in germany or europe (well there's only ONE eShop that sells Speedball in germany - but only basic stuff, not even the Glow-in-the-Dark stuff) :/

/atg, halfway desperate. (damn i wanna s'screened sports jacket with reflective foliages!!!) Sad

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Silkscreening extreme: Metal Foil Madness!!! on: June 02, 2007 10:45:32 AM
So i ordered that "super special leaf metal screenprinting set" cause i thought i'd order some very hard to get glue and special textile metal foil used by the industry....

Noticed the smell of the glue that was included and watched it dry...
Noticed that leaf metal foil you iron on the dried, silkscreened glue...

and got to the conclusion that: *drumroll*

- you can silkscreen that Uhu Textile Glue (it has a consistence like screenprinting colors, acts like that hotglue on the back of fusible interfacing after drying and it looks like wood glue, so you might try any textile glue that matches this description you'll find  Wink )

- those nifty metal transfer foils really survive 40 easy-care washing! (washing in delicates program was recommended) Shocked

- you can even print thin line stuff (durability depending on the leaf metal foil and the amount of glue, i tried a few from different vendors) with that! all washing-proof! (excess leaf metal disappears after washing)

*badum-tssshhhh*

Now for some bling-bling ginkgo foliage:

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Unwanted Print - Hot to get it off? on: October 17, 2006 11:20:37 AM
so, i got this almost new t-shirt with a huge (and really resistant) transfer print on it.

The print is very good (think it was that white avery zweckform transfer foil for dark shirts), it doesn't even crack, but i want to take it off cuz the motif sux.  Wink

Any ideas?  Huh
5  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Gr8 website to get some designer logos from... on: October 09, 2006 09:53:35 AM
ever wanted to silkscreen, embrioder or strass your fave designers logo on a shirt or bag? no problem!  Grin

http://www.brandsoftheworld.com

& just search for the desired brand/logo. sometimes you'll get more than one logo, and a few logos aren't that "clean" (so watch for the details of the logos).

Chanel, Galliano, Dior, they have almost everything as a vector graphic for free, just save target to....  Grin

the website of juicy couture also has had (damnit, now neiman marcus runs their site!) big jpgs of their tshirt prints (!!!) which made fakin' vewwy easy, so watch the designer's goodies sites  Grin

k, i'm gonna fake me a self-designed decent philipp plein jacket now since his originals are not saxay enuff. Tongue

have fun,
atg (who can't be (_|_)ed to spend 700 euros on a damn jacket with frouzily glued svarowskis)

Jealous faces of the brats in da' club: PRICELESS!  Cheesy

Another thing i made recently:
tank with twisted pearl chain and strass (everything detachable)
The trick are buttonholes sewn very close to / almost under the inseam  Wink some of the sewing aid nonwoven still visible though.  Embarrassed

Next thing on my to-do-list is some "The Great China Wall" outclassing Sweater. Still meditating about what strass-mix to order....size & colour mix opr just colour mix?  Undecided
