1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Canvas Decoupage Question on: March 20, 2012 05:43:35 PM
Hey folks, I've decoupaged a few pairs of shoes now, but they've all been that fake or cheap leathery/vinyly material. However, a fellow I know asked if I could do a pair of canvas shoes for him with comics.

So my question for you is, can I? How well does it work on canvas? Or does anyone have any tips for working with canvas shoes? Also, slightly related, should I be sanding down the leathery/vinyly flats and heels I've been working on; I hear people say it helps the glue stick more.

So, I've accepted that it'll be impossible to make this into a dress without cutting it. I'm wondering now how I can sew it together keeping the image as imagey as possible? The internet seems to not be able to find anything on lining up fabric, like you would do for stripes.
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Latin T-Shirts! on: May 15, 2010 02:09:39 PM
One day, the girls from Latin class and I decided to have a stencilling party. From this came some of the nerdiest shirts ever. Sorry about the pictures. Each shirt has our Latin nickname on the sleeve and some words on the back.

From left to right: Vici (Not actually Latin), Papillae (Breasts), Avia (Grandmother), and Ebriosa (Female Drunk)

Again, Left to right:
Carthage must be destroyed!
The English language has no future.
Because real men have rocks fall from their mouthes
I came, I saw, Latin conquered me but I conquered history.

Hm, this would probably help. A picture of my excellent fabric.

It comes down to about my knees for length aprox. I'm thinking it'd be a wonderful dress with some hemming, tightening and adding a zipper so I can still fit into it. But yeah, the picture would need to stay as is and any slack would be taken from top, bottom and sides.

Alrighty folks, so I got this most excellent peice of fabric and I've decided I want to make a strapless dress with it. Now, problems lie in that it's a panel type of fabric, with a single image thing going on (if that makes any sense to you) and also I'm not the best at sewing.

I've been scouring the internets and having trouble finding a pattern/tutorial for an easy strapless dress that wouldn't require me to really cut or change the fabric too much. I'd also like to put a zipper into the back of it. So I figured I'd come to you lovely folks who might have some rocking ideas. I greatly appreciate any help you can give. Thanks a bunch!

What kind if fabric paint did you use?

I used plain old Tulip fabric paint in black.

This is excellent! Although I'm wondering how it worked when it got so big? As in holding the two pages together and stenciling it. I'd also love to know where you got the stencil, I'm sure the boyfriend would like it.
8  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Archie Shoes on: October 09, 2009 04:17:47 AM
So after seeing some of the great shoes on here I decided I needed a pair of decoupaged nerd shoes. I of course picked Archie comics because besides being super awesome when I was little he pretty much taught me to read. They're holding up pretty well, I sprayed them with some acrylic protection spray of some sort.

I'm in the hate on chemistry club as well. Also, you're studying reminds me so much of my very own, this is me writing an essay. It's super funny though.

So here are my first stenciling projects. Took me forever to post them cause I wanted to wait til I could put up pictures.

DPS stands for Damage Per Second for those not in the know.

Close up.
