1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I'm going to get my art silkscreened... any suggestions about graphics? on: December 30, 2007 12:41:30 PM
I am going to get my design printed... and so I posted it on threadless.com to get some comments. Please tell me what you think.
The Shirt:

I've also posted it on threadless. You can go here to see:

So far I've gotten pretty mixed reviews. The only thing I'm going to change so far is the spelling of "Disappear."

2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / PLEASE HELP with popup windows in Flash MX on: September 22, 2006 07:11:46 PM
I am trying to make a website menu with Flash, that has buttons that when pressed, create new fixed-sized pop-up windows. The website that has the flash html right now is http://www.theugly-club.com/uglymenu.html . In the action script for each button I put : getURL(javascript:openNewWindow('http://www.theugly-club.com/monthly','monthly','height=600,width=400,toolbar=no,scrollbars=yes'));
For some reason it says that there is an error with this... I also put the following code in the www.theugly-club.com/monthly page:

<script language="JavaScript">
function openNewWindow('http://www.theugly-club.com/monthly', 'monthly', 'clothing','height=600,width=400,toolbar=no,
scrollbars=yes') {
newWindow=window.open('http://www.theugly-club.com/monthly', 'monthly', 'clothing','height=600,width=400,toolbar=no,
scrollbars=yes'); }

Any suggestions?

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Polishing Resin on: February 03, 2006 07:10:29 PM
I saw a Crafters Coast to Coast the other day, about a girl who made resin necklaces with pieces of broken bottles in the reisn. When the resing had been popped out of the molds, she sanded them, then wet sanded them, and then did some CRAZY polishing. I was wondering how polishing should be done, and what is wet sanding?
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Sewing in Zippers (What kind of foot?)... CONFUSED. UPDATE with PICTURES on: December 23, 2005 10:09:53 AM
Hello! Ok, so I have a RICCAR Super Lite R916. I am kind of new to using it, and I was wondering about a couple of things. Does every different kind of sewing machine take a different kind of foot or do you just go to the store and ask for sewwing machine feet. Also, I am trying to make a zippered pouch for someone for christmas, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any good tutorials for sewing in zippers. One last question: how does one distinguish between a foot for a zipper and a regular foot? THANK YOU!
GloryB: I seem to have the object on the far left... do I need all of them or.... argh. This is what I have.

6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Tips for new silk-screeners on: September 05, 2005 09:05:08 PM
I just thought this would help.
1. Coat your screen with emulsion as many times as you want... dont worry about just spreading it once on one side and twice on the other. Just keep spreading it until you have a nice coat and it is thin and even.
2. Use a scoop coater for emulsion... it is so much easier... but dont but to much emulsion on the coater at once... cause it will drip all over your screen.
3. When putting ink through your screen, less ink is better than more ink, and only smear th eink up and down... never go sideways!
4. Black ink comes out really well for some reason.. just an opinion.
5.but somehting in between the two sides of your shirt or else the ink will leak through.
6. This is backtracking but very important... when letting th eemulsion dry... if you are using diazo, wait at least a day and a half maybe two days... it sucks ass to have a wet screen... YUCK!
If you have any question i'll gladly answer.

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Question About BDG Shirts on: August 29, 2005 12:04:56 PM
Does anyone know where to buy those soft bdg shirts? I know you can get them at Urban Outfitters, but I was wondering if they sell them anywhere else for cheaper. Thanks.
9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Want to get a gocco... have lots of ?s Can you silk screen with it or just stamp on: February 22, 2005 04:18:35 PM
Hey! I want to get a gocco for my birthday but I don't know if it is the right thing. I plan on making t-shirts and sweatshirts. It seems like when you use a gocco on fabric, it just stamps the desing onto the fabric. Does this work as well as slik screening (where I would "slide" the paint on by using a squeegee)? I plan on selling the t-shirts I make and I want them to be high quality.

Also, if the gocco is not what I am looking for, which silk screenign kit seems to be the best? (and not tooooooooo pricey)
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Sewing in straight lines on: January 16, 2005 08:16:50 AM
How do you sew in straight lines so that it looks professional... when I sew it always come out... well not straight. Also, is there a way to turn corners while sewing?(Like to make a box ?)
