3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / stiff-ness on: April 15, 2007 12:11:33 PM
ok, so I printed a white design on a light blue-ish shirt but it ended up stiff and un-bendy... did i just use too much ink or do I have to actually wash it for it to be soft and t-shirt esque?
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / emulsion problems... on: April 02, 2007 11:03:24 AM
Ok, so I've been reading up on all the other problems out there with emulsion, and I'm not sure if I have the same problem...? Alright, so I coated the front and back with emulsion in a dark room,m then let it dry overnight.  The next day I exposed the image for about 12 minutes, but when I go to rinse of the image...

1- The part that should be rinsing out just gets lighter, and the regular emulsion gets lighter too. 
2- Eventually i get frustrated and start rubbing it, which just takes EVERYTHING out.  Ahhhhh. I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing wrong.  Thanks in advance for all the lovely help I will hopefully be getting. Grin

Advice would be loved mucho.

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Yet another take on the bottle cap necklace on: February 18, 2006 06:13:19 PM
i know that this has taken forever to get back to, but I'll try to walk you through a tut. 

Ok so first you get 3 loverly bottlecap like these...(I'm a master at paint, cant you tell?)

and next you get your chain, which I'm not going to even attempt making on paint...okay so now on all your caps, punch 4 holes, note that the holes are in different places (the hole punching is done with a good old hammer and nail, i would also suggest doing this on a surface your not really attached to, as it left several dents in my table)

now that the hole punching is done onto the chain! For this I'm not that much help, because i really just eyeballed it, although i can tell you that the chains the farthest down are about 3 links longer that the ones above (oh god now i sound like a math problem!)
So after all of you lovely people who are good at eyeballing things are done with that tighten with pliers, and add another chain for the neck and tada your finished. 

This being one of the first times I've done a tut, yes i know its vague and i have no problem if you keep asking me questions about it.  i hope that helps at least a little bit, but like i said if its really unclear just ask away!
