i had the idea to scotch tape the normal printed sheets to the back of the canvas, then hold it up to the light and trace it. i think that would be easier than trying to iron on a canvas. but if you try it let us know!

Do the different pieces fit nicely together or is there like little spaces in between?

I am ADDICTED to rasterbator. at first i had no idea what it was but now i'm so glad that missy posted the awesome link. i've reasterbated like 5 images so far. none are over 10 pages tho. last night i made an austin powers for my door (i didn't turn out that well though). i'm working on coloring one of the rasterbators i made with colored pencils... i'm losing patience though.

about the spaces, rasterbator tells you that when you print the pdf file (it makes your image in pdf) you need to go to the printing options and go to page scaling then fit to paper so there will be no margins. i have yet to figure out how to do this tho. the spaces really get in the way of a striking image.

my door with austin powers (spaces really take away from image) and the one i'm coloring can be found @ http://img78.photobucket.com/albums/v298/sarahzz15/rasterbator%20rocks/
i tried to upload photos but it was a nightmare.  Embarrassed

then looking upward i strain my eyes & try, to tell the difference between shooting stars & statellites, from the passenger seat as you are driving me home. "do they collide?" i ask & you smile. with my feet on the dash the world doesn't matter.

i think every normal household printer is going to give you margins--i have a cheap-o hp and it leaves about a 1/4 inch margin around all the edges. if you dont like it, you'll just have to trim it with scissors or a paper cutter like at kinko's. i kind of like the margins, but my wall has a 50 sheet image so it's not as noticeable.

i like the margins too - but for some weird reason my image printed with margins on the left right & bottom of the page?  not the top?  ugh! it was all messed up!  I was so mad!  My printer settings don't have a fit to paper setting either.

i have a fairly good printer...I just cant figure out how to get the top to have the same margins! wahh!

And lastly...did you notice it using alot of ink?  i had 1/2 a cartridge filled & it went empty trying this one image!!!

I was so excited when I saw this, I did a fifteen page picture of our oldest cat and hung it on the dining room wall.  My husband thought it was so cool when he got home.  I've been preoccupied with this, and I keep thinking of what else it would be cool to use it for.  I thought, window sticky paper for a neat window treatment.  The right picture would let in light, but block the view into the apartment, I think.  Also, Bumper Sticker paper!  Couldn't you just see one of these on the side of a van or something?  I think that would be so awesome!
I'll have to get a picture of our huge cat face poster when the battery on the camera charges.  I add it later.  I'm turning into such a rasterbater.   Wink

I had the same idea. I have these two yucky plexi windows on my back porch and since it's an apartment, I can't replace them. So I'm going to cover them with this image:



The windows are together but have a wood divider in the middle, which should fall in the middle of Jon and Vince. All in all, it should be cool.
