I hope this is the right board...tracing counts as an image reproduction technique, right?

I've been on a Circular Gallifreyan kick lately, I love codes and different alphabets and I think anything written in Gallifreyan just looks cool.  I wanted to combine my two great science fiction loves, Doctor Who and Firefly/Serenity, so I picked my favorite Jayne quote from Serenity and wrote it out in Gallifreyan on a piece of cardboard.  Then I traced it with a fabric stain pen onto a T-shirt.

The quote is "Let's be bad guys."   Cheesy

That is such a cool design! It turned out really great - the lines look very crisp.

I also recently got into Circular Gallifreyan.

I went for the obvious quote though. 

"I aim to misbehave"  I was planning on doing a vinyl decal out of mine though.

I got really excited when I managed to translate that without referring to the guide.  Now I feel like a nerd.  Cheesy

Are you making the vinyl decal yourself?  How does that work?

I know how what you mean.  I get excited when I can translate them without a cheat sheet too. 

I have a Silhouette Cameo machine.  That's what I use to make decals.   You can cut pretty design you want with it.  No cartridges needed.   

Here's one I cut and put on my printer/scanner (not my desgin, thankfully someone else already recreated the gallifreyan from the doctor's cot.)

And a couple of other things I've made with it. (click through for full size)
