71  tshirt with vintage Ursa Major design in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by worthwhilegirl on: February 28, 2005 07:37:38 PM
I drew this design based on a few vintage astronomy pics from the 20's. It is for my husbands band- cyanotype.

I printed it using the photo emulsion method & I am soooooo pleased with how it turned out!!

I printed 50 of them for his tour next month. I used various color inks on lots of different color shirts.

This color combo is my personal favorite so I will be keeping this one for myself! I mean I am his biggest fan! Wink

-excuse the funky face I'm making!-

Whadda you guys think?

YAY! I am really glad that you guys like it!

ooh! i think i might cry!! law & order will never be the same. rip jerry.   do you mind if i use the stencil?

Please do! I would love to see more tributes to him!

Here is the original I used since my tote picture isn't that great!

I changed a few of the lines but it was pretty fast to do (about 30 mins cutting time)!

74  Jerry Orbach Stenciled tote! YAY!!! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by worthwhilegirl on: February 26, 2005 07:45:11 PM
I love Law & Order & Jerry Orbach is was my favorite! I was so sad when he passed away that I wanted to pay tribute to him. I did a shirt with the sulky iron on pen with a pic of Jerry Orbach this morning https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=27006 & I wasn't thrilled with the way it turned out so I decided to go back to my first love- stenciling. So, here is my new knitting bag complete with Jerry.

I think I may add some text later but I was just so excited about how it turned out! YAY!

75  Jerry Orbach shirt in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by worthwhilegirl on: February 26, 2005 03:42:13 PM
So I have been dying to make a Jerry Orbach shirt- Lenny Brisco from Law & Order. I had some free time this morning & decided to play around with the Sulky iron on pen mentioned herehttps://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=23933.0 & this is what I got:

and of course one with my cat:

I wasn't as satisfied with the color saturation as I usually am with stenciling (I like my blacks really black) so I think that when I have more time I will turn it into a stencil. The pen does work well & is easy to use but I may just stick with stenciling & use this to make outlines for embroidering or maybe just for words.

Any opinions?

Wow guys I'm glad everyone liked it! I won't lie it was a ton of work (we did 250 Cd's & stamped the CD itself & the cover- it took about 3 hours of serious labor). But the results are so awesome that it was worth it!

The StazOn ink is a little more expensize (I think it was like $7.00 at michaels for one pad) but it did all 250 of our CD's & it still has a ton of life left in it. The information on it is here:


This is what the site says:
StzOn is our only solvent-based inkpad, designed for decorating non-porous surfaces such as glass, metal, shrink plastic, cellophane, aluminum foil, leather and acrylic. Thanks to its mild smell, StzOn is much safer to use than other permanent inks. Its also much easier to use since there is no need to re-ink the pad before each use. Inkers are available for all 10 colors to periodically rejuvenate dry edges. For everything from industrial projects to garden art, and home dcor, StzOn is sure to become a classic!

I had never tried it on a silver CD but I did a test print for housepig. I could only find one that already had writing on it but it still worked OK.

Unfortunately the scanner caused the shadow but I think it looks really good on silver too.

I hope that helps everyone out. Let me know if I can help with anything else & good luck with those independent releases!

My husband & I did this for an album a few years ago. It worked really well. You will need to do a few test runs to make sure that you are using the right amount of paint & that you can get everything off without bungling the whole thing up (It probably took us about 12 CD's to get the hang of things). If you silkscreen often it might not take you as long (this was only the 3rd thing we had ever done).

It is also important to make sure that the ink will dry on the CD without looking too uneven. Doing a test run will help. There are also CD's out there that matte white on top & those take any ink or paint a lot better than the silver ones. We used those for the last CD's we made.

I also recommend making a stamp. That is what we did for his latest album & it worked really well. We hand cut a stamp and used stazon brand ink (it works on every surface). Here is a pic of his new Cd.

Good luck!
