I definitely LOVE this. It seems like you can give it either a vintage-y look by not rubbing the image as thoroughly, or a polished look by running it through a press.

I definitely would like to know how washable this is. I noticed you put it on things that normally don't get washed very often. Have you tried it on garments? Aside from the obvious use on t-shirts, I could see this as an interesting way to make your own printed fabrics.

What books are you using?  I alway am looking for clip art like this, but either don't find it or it has a big watermark I can't edit off.

Please share.

Thanks!

Ok.  I should probably learn to read before I post something. 
I'm definately going to look out for those books.

Thanks.

Wow, I'm super flattered by all the comments!!!  Like the previous poster said, yeah, you can use it for any colors as long as you've copied w/ toner.  I personally like black and white because 1) Craphound images are in black and 2) I like the simplistic design.

I washed the CD case, and it stayed on.  But a word about doing it on plastic, it'll ruin the finish.  I'll try it on fabric today and wash it to see how well it holds up.

Also, if you do this on teeshirts, be sure to use a shirt with a very very smooth surface because the print may not make it into the grains.

Craphound is just amazing. You can't tell from the photos, but issue 5 is WELL loved, and issue six is getting there. I use them all the time.  If you like in the Portland, OR area, you can pick them up at most Powells or Reading Frenzy (which has a website for those of you who live in the area: http://readingfrenzy.com/)

i used to use a similar technique, but instead of laquer i used Wintergreen Oil(synthetic is cheaper and works also).. The only perk I would say wintergreen has as opposed to Laquer is that it smells GOOD!:)

Sorry to bother you with questions, but I have another one: What's a good ink to use if you hand-draw images? Is it better to scan it in and print it out on toner, or is there something you can use to draw directly on paper that will transfer well?

im pretty sure it wont work if you try to transfer a drawing.. you would be better off xeroxing the drawing.

someone did something like this but with genuine turpentine. where do you happen to get Lacquer thinner? and does it work on all surfaces?
