671  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / stenciling text on walls??? on: May 30, 2005 01:54:29 PM
I've recently visited a few websites where you can buy either wallpaper borders or actual stickers with phrases on them.  Of course, they cost an arm and a leg and since I'm a new homeowner I can't really afford it.

Has anyone here stenciled text on walls?  Know of any good methods I could try?  Do you have pictures of examples of what you've done?  I'm concerned with keeping things straight and level.

Any and all help/suggestions would be great!

Not sure if this helps but I always heat-seal after letting my paint dry for a week.  Certain brands of textile medium recommend this but some claim you can heat-set as soon as the paint dries.  I've waited the week on some of the more recent shirts I've done and after many, many washings there's no evidence of cracking or peeling.

Michael's was selling a rather large bottle of it for $1.75 this past weekend around here.  I stocked up.  It's well worth the money spent.  I also let the paint/fabric medium application on my shirts dry for about a week before I heat-set them.  Haven't had a problem yet!

Good luck!

I could be totally wrong here but I think if you used plain old acrylic paint it should do the trick.  You could also try spray paint.  Most spray paint brands hold up pretty tough to the elements, including water.

Please, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Hmm, so it sounds like I should just do it.  Thanks everyone!

You know, i've always wondered the same thing and recently stumbled upon a solution to my problem.  Give Sephora's "Whipped Body Delight" lotion a try.  I'm sensitive to most perfumes also but I want to smell good.  I tried this stuff out and it had no negative effects on my skin.  Plus, I thought the smell faded within a few minutes, but everywhere I go now people comment on it.  I get lots of compliments and yet the perfumey smell is definitely not overwhelming to me or anyone else.


And, just as a sidenote, these people will have your stuff shipped to you in no time!  Good prices, too!

Yeah, I've heard it hurts pretty bad, but I'm one of those weirdos who actually likes the pain of getting a tattoo.  Since it's so close to the bone, I'm sure it's gonna feel pretty weird, but I'm up for it.

Thanks for your input.  Anyone else have any comments?

I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, but...here goes.

For any of you who have tattooed feet, have you noticed that the ink fades quickly?  I finally convinced my tattoo guy to do some work on my feet but he's still a bit hesitant.  He claims they fade really fast from wearing shoes/socks, etc. and thinks they're a waste of time.  Weird, considering that would mean more business for him if I went back for touch-ups.  Anyway, I've got tats everywhere else on my body and this was the one that I've wanted the most for a LONG time.

Any info would be great!

680  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: can you really spray-paint a ceramic cookie jar??? on: May 25, 2005 07:12:43 AM
Unfortunately I don't have access to a ceramic shop to have it refired.  I thought about that, but it's not really an option for me.  It's too bad, really, I'd love to try my hand at ceramics.

Krylon paint, though, that might work.  I'm not using the jar for cookies, so storing food in it isn't a concern.  My husband and I use it for things like spare change...you know, like a rainy day fund.  I came pretty close to just ditching it completely, but the shape of the jar is really cool.  I think I might try the Krylon option.
