So with all the information gleaned here, and some website, I've made a screen, and tested it on a t-shirt.

Here is the original picture, my cat sleeping:



Here is the screen I made (used a brooding lamp with 250 watt bulb, 12 inches away for 12 mins):




Heatset using instructions from this site:

Here is the t-shirt:



Here is a closeup of the kitty:



I got the brooding lamp for a local feed store, and the bulb from a local photo shop.

I used photoshop to turn the picture into white/black high contrast, printed onto a transparency.  You turn the picture into a grayscale pict, then use Threshold to make it high contrast.  You adjust the threshold until it's the way you want.

Will be making the real t-shirts later with some friends who are coming over to play.  Cheesy

would a happy lamp work just as well, or does the lamp need to feel the angst to be artistic?

 Wink

nice job - thinking about a shirt of my dog, so this is right up my alley.

I think it has to be bright.  I don't know if a heat lamp is brght.   I did price a heat lamp bulb and it was way more expensive than the photo shop bulb I bought.

The brooding lamp is made to hold a 250 watt bulb, and not that expensive.  Mine cost $10.  You can find one at any feed store.

That's really beautiful.  You've captured the snuggliness of kitties.

oh darn.  I just realized I misread your post.  I missed the joke entirely.

I feel really silly.   Embarrassed

But that might help with my brooding lamp.  Smiley

Thank you.  She also used to sleep right on top of my head at night.
