Hey ... back during the server melt down i actually replied to your post.  Sorry I didn't notice until now that it got eaten by the server monster  Shocked

I used Jacquard Textile paint.  I had some fabric paint laying around that my mom gave me but its the kind that you dint iron.  Everything I read on craftster used textile or acrylic with textile medium, so I went with my textile paints.

I am the favorite... i was here first!  Squatters rights ya know  Grin
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Problems with IronOns on: December 09, 2005 08:57:44 PM

I followed the iron on transfer instructions and also consulted craftster and read the tips here.  What I want to know is if anyone else has had this problem/what the solution for next time might be.  The transfer looked good after I spent 4 minutes ironing and i peeled off the paper backing when it was cooled.  I took the shirt, turned it inside out and washed it alone in cold water.  When i took it out of the washer, it was all crackled and peeling off.

So, before I spend more time and effort trying this again... what can I do differently?  I should mention that they were Avery brand transfers and I printed the transfer with my HP laserjet a few days ago and stashed it so the BF didnt see the present I was attempting to make.  Where did I go wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Hi.  This is my first official posting of a project other than a craft challenge--its also my very first stenciling project.  A little background info:  My uncle is a wanna be rock star, he has a few bands that he plays drums in, and he goes by the name of Bad Ronald (yes this is a grown man of 42 who acts like a 22 year old hee hee).

Here's my shirt I made him.  It was supposed to be for Christmas, but I got so excited about it I had to give it to him early.  He went nuts!

The shirt:

Close up of the detail: (here you can see my messiness! eek)

I found a font called "rockstar" on the web and the stencil was based largely on one of the pictures in the font.  I had wrote the "Bad Ronald" and "Rock Star"  I printed it on normal paper becuase i had no card stock.  I put the paper and a piece of heavier paper that was part of a piece of junk mail together and put clear contact paper over both sides to laminate them and cut the stencil out.

Hope you like!

This is really cool. I like the use of those round wirey looking things in place of straight wire to hold the washers together.  Nice job!

That looks really elegant.  THat's totally something I would shell out 15 bucks for at a store because I am not crafty enough with jewlery to make one myself.  Good job!

Nice job.  I haven't gotten my tree up yet either, but these would be part of my special precious to me ornaments.  Good job... handmade kicks the butt of storebought!
