12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Bleach spattering? on: September 17, 2005 05:07:29 PM
Ok, so i'm making a hoodie, and i'm stencilling these birdies (hurrah!) on it. it's just a plain black zip-up. I want to do a couple bleach spatters on it too. I saw this at delias and it looked awesome, but $60 for a hoodie? my dear, i think not. So, i was wondering about the best method of actually SPATTERING the bleach....a toothbrush, paintbrush? also, should i mix the bleach with water? i'm pretty sure it's a 50/50 cotton-poly, or somewhere around there. Oh, also, what's the better method for putting these birdies on? iron-on, or stencil? thank you kindly.
13  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / bird or owl stencils & bleach spattering questions! hurrah! on: September 17, 2005 02:15:44 PM
Ok, so i was on the delias website & i saw this sweet hoodie that has birds & bleach spatters on it. so i was thinking "i can make that for LESS the sixty bucks!"
so now I'm here.
Any tips on bleach-spattering that you have are greatly appreciated, i don't want the fabric to completely fade & be terribly weak. Also, any stencils of birdies? anyone? owls are good too. thanks muchly in advance!
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Destroying Jeans... on: September 11, 2005 06:25:20 PM
I don't know if this counts as "reconstruction" or whatever, but what the hell. Can anyone post links on how to destroy jeans, or give me a step-by-step? the last jeans i did went totally haywire, & i can't figure out what went wrong. I'd like them to have a kind of dark wash, with thigh fades & whiskers & whatnot. Ok, go.
15  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Favorite Brand Of Transfer Paper? (& other newbie questions, of course) on: September 10, 2005 07:10:12 PM
ok, so I've never made a shirt with this stuff before, so I figured i do some q&a before investing anything (i'm a cheapskate) So, onto the questions, then...
1) what is your favorite brand of transfer paper & how much does it cost?
2) how long to transfers live in the wash? like, how many washes before it's totally ruined? how do you wash it, heat/cycle wise?
3) how opaque are the transfers? do they have a huge shine-factor?
4) where do you buy your plain ts? i've been stencilling for a while but i'm always looking for a good bargian Smiley

thanks muchly <3

I read somewhere that if you add wheat flour to rice it makes it sticky. I love sticky rice, and i was wondering how you make it sticky. How does the wheat flour thing work? what are other ways to make it sticky? thank you!

It's really cool, but I think I could make it instead of buying it. I was thinking dremeling all the little holes, but is there a fasterway? Also, can you buy JUST lite-brite pegs?Thanks!
19  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Stencil paint question. on: March 19, 2004 05:42:52 PM
Hey hey! I've been wanting to stencil forever and now that I have some free time, I've decided to try it. I was wondering about paint. I went a-surfing to see what sort of paint to use, and I've heard everything from spray paint to straight acrylis paint to 50/50 acrylic/medium...HELP!!! What works best?? I'm looking for something durable, I'm not into hand washing. Thanks so much!!
20  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Messenger Bag---how to re-vamp? on: March 15, 2004 06:05:22 AM
I have a messenger bag. It is waterproofed canvas-y stuff, i forget what it's called. Typical backpack-like stuff. My friends all signed it, but Im sort of sick of looking at "Luv ya 2004!" and such over and over again, so i was wondering what I should do. My conundrum (sp?Huh?) it needs to be waterproof. So, i was thinking of covering it with cloth, and then finding a spray or something that would work well over it. Does anyone have any ideas? I could do something else if you think it would work better Smiley
