21  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / R2-D2, come here right now! on: September 17, 2008 05:41:42 AM
Boopity-beep-beep! [Yeah, that's totally what R2 sounds like..]

I'm currently studying Fashion Design at Tafe [college], and one of our classes this semester is fabric printing. I whipped up this pride-n-joy one class. I'm extra proud of it as each colour lays directly over the other, so it has to be perfectly aligned, or it just looks completely silly.
Alas, when I tested the stencil before printing onto the t-shirt, I didn't really concider the fact that having paint on the stencils makes it very hard to see through the plastic to line everything up.
The white is very rough on this stencil because:
1] The shirt fabric was thinner than I wanted, and started puckering and bubbling because the white area was so large.
2] After one coat, I kinda liked the retro look.

So far he's been a big hit with everyone who's seen it, especially the Star Wars costuming group I'm in. -cough/geek/cough-

Oh, oh. And I'm studying Fashion Design because it's the only bridging course to get into Costume Design. I'm reaaaaally not into fashion.
And so my geekdom comes full circle.

I should say, the layers are:
1- White body and appendages
2- Blue features, panels, and wiring.
3- Grey/silver highlighting and extra detailing.
