I am officially addicted. Here is my first attempt at a transfer Tee - I used Avery darks, and I read all the advice that I found in this thread on how to do it, and as a result, my first experience has been a very cool one.

Here's the shirt!

I really liked the way it turned out, even though the ironing changed the colors just a bit! Check this out....

This is a pic of the transfer on top, finished, and below is the test printout I did. Ironing seems to add some yellow to all the colors... I think.... The blues on the inside are supposed to be the same color, but just a different shade, the inside blobs being darker. After ironing, the darker blobs got positively teal, and I also noticed that my red/orange turned a really basic orange. Hmmm.... i might need to do some tests on that.    But if you don't know.... it looks rad!  I'm super happy with the way this turned out. Comments are welcome!

I got the art off of a site that was showcasing French graffiti art, i think.... I vectorized it in Illustrator, and It took FREAKIN' FOREVER... but it was worth it! I didn't know at first what I was going to use the image for, but as soon as I found out about this, I knew!

I am sorry that the pics are not working tonight, (8/21/05) I'll have the pics posted in a better place tomorrow, bandwidth razzin' frazzle @%^&#$ #$^@# @*#@^ !!!
