First of all thank you for all the lovely comments. They didnt come out as planned but now Im happy with them. And so to answer questions.

The mold I made using brush on rubber latex and a deodorant lid. You have to apply and re apply for about a day, layers of latex. Letting them dry in between layers you end up with a rubber mold in the shape of you lid. You can re use them because rubbing alcohol can take off any old resin.

I never really did any polishing to them. And if I did I wouldnt know what to use because my dremel tool didnt work on my only test subject.

When I varnished them I used some crappy wood varnish that my mom gave me. I didnt realize that it was for wood and it made them look crappy so I When to Revy and bought krylon epoxy enamel.

Rubber Latex + Casting Resin + Catalyst- You can all get at Michaels
Deodorant- anywhere
Varnish- Revy or anywhere like that

This was my first time doing anything like this. I didnt make to many because I didnt know what I was doing.
Im pretty happy with the way they came out. But now I know what to do better next time.
I guess I forgot to menton the fact that necklaces. This is just a picture of them before the rings and necklace part were added.
The last one I some how messed up on the varnish and now it looks wrinkly. But I guess you get the point.

No actually whats funny is the fact that I have the same meat fabric that i bought from dresew and I also made a pillow out of it. I would take a picture of it right now but Im lazy so here is one with it in the background. The pillow is kind of smushed but you get the idea...

5  Re: Confused on silkscreening... in Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions by Local Girl Denise on: June 29, 2004 01:58:11 AM
I dont really know how to define what it is but, its where you take an image and you print it on a piece of clear plastic. You then take a frame with screen fabric on it (a fabric sort of like pantyhose) and you use these chemicals that are light sensitive and spread then evenly on both sides of the screen and let it dry. Once they are dry you take the screen and put the image underneath, hold it down with a piece of glass and expose it to uv light. After a certain ammount of time of being exposed you can take off the glass and the image that was on the plastic has shown up on the screen, then you just wash the screen and the chemicals where the image is have come off thus leaving you with a sort of stencil. I hope I make some sort of sense

Heres an example of one I have made

Yay I just made mine. I bought some felt from the dollar store for no reason and then I remember that i had read your post just before I went out. So just as i got home i started to make mine. It came out better than i thought it would.
Now i just need to think of a name... Im thinking about the name Mr Big Time lol but if any one has and suggestions that would be great.
Thank you.

well this was my first wallet I ever made and I wasnt sure exactly what I was doing so when i added the closure i put it on last...

now if you are adding velcro I would suggest to add that on to the inside part before you sew all the pockets together. Just line them up like you would have them sewn in the wallet and find the place where you want the first velco strip to be. And for the second piece of velcro that will have to be on the outside part you will have to sew that on before you sew all the pockets on.

The place where the paper money sits is between the first step (where the green and the grey piece of fabric are sewn together at the top) and the four pockets. When you sew the pockets to the wallet you only sew three sides thus leaving a big pocket for the money... hope this helps

I hope Im making sense right now.....

Yeah lining the inside of the pockets sounds good. The inside is raw but since I didnt line the pockets i just tried to keep them as neat as possible.

Oooo the black vinyl and pink insides sounds cute. If you can post some pictures on afterwards I would love to see them. Good luck to you

Silk screening is possibly one of the best things in the world. I have made several band shirts, but only for myself and the odd person. I like my newest one the most. I made the image from an image in a radiohead book I got at chapters for 7 dollars.
