very nice! I loved the first picture too but when I saw the finished piece, I was like: oooh! that's soo coooool!
A little question, how did you transfer those photographs on the fabric? I knew you could print on fabric but well I don't think you put the dress through a printer right?

Riechan - The prints were done by photocopying (sooooo many!!) photographs and then placing them face down on the fabric, and sort of ... rubbing and pressing them with some paper towel saturated with paint thinner. Sort of like transferring a temporary tattoo.

There was a lot of paint thinner!

The photos came out in reverse, obviously, because I did NOT have time to scan, flip, print, photocopy, AND transfer all the photos! It might be worth doing on a smaller project - or if you had more time than I did Smiley

I love the finished piece!  The transfer process sounds nasty though..... Tongue

If you do more of these, I hope you will come up with a safer process!

I think this design concept is definitely worth pursuing in more pieces.

aah! I tried that one time... didn't work out so well... I used the dull end of a paint brush to rub the paint thinner in the paper and fabric. I might have to try this technique again although I can't stand the smell (give migraine) oh wait! I bought one that doesn't smell! (adds another project to her list Wink )

Ludi - It's all about suffering for your art! Hahaha Smiley

Riechan - the key is to press really hard and try your best not to move the image while your printing it! Cheesy

There's paint thinner that doesn't smell!?!? Wish I'd know about this a few hundred pictures ago ...  Wink
