1  Many Moods of Dr. Herbert West shirt in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by Bargain Betty on: March 08, 2006 07:08:52 PM
This is my most ambitious project to date, mostly because of all the planning. Every square is a separate piece, including the text above.

I did 3 "passes" on the shirt - 1st 2 rows + lettering, then next 2 rows, then last row, letting each "pass" cool before moving on - which made it easier to set up, but it still took longer than anything else I've made. It was a labour of absolute love, so I enjoyed every minute. Cheesy

And here is the final product:

For anyone who doesn't know, Dr. Herbert West is the "mad scientist" from the Re-Animator series of films, played by one of my favorite men in the universe, Jeffrey Combs.  Cheesy

This is going to be proudly worn at the horror cons I'm attending later this year. Cheesy

2  Mad Scientist Shirt in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by Bargain Betty on: November 06, 2005 03:21:07 PM
Phew. This took me forever! I did the photos and text as separate pieces and for me, who can't see in straight lines, it took what seemed like lifetimes to line everything up. I love the final product though.

The "mad scientists" are all my new favorite actor, Jeffrey Combs in his many incarnations of Dr. West and Dr. Ek. Smiley

3  Master Shake t-shirt in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by Bargain Betty on: October 10, 2005 07:20:20 PM
I already made a Meatwad shirt (see the thread somewhere below) and everyone really seems to like this design on my magnets I make, so I made a shirt of it as well.

I think it came out okay. Smiley I used the Avery Dark T-shirt transfers on a white shirt again.

The shirt is definitely white. I was just lazy when I took the photo. Undecided

4  [adultswim] coasters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Bargain Betty on: August 17, 2005 11:20:56 PM
Heartily inspired by jan_on_ice's awesome pin-up girl coasters, I made my own [adultswim] themed ones.

I made them slightly differently - I used sticker paper (from BigLots) and ModgePodged the top of it to make it waterproof. I guess time will tell if my variation works. Undecided I got the awesome coasters at Big Lots - $1.49 for 6!!! Cheesy

5  Yes, it works! Dark t-shirt transfer on white shirt in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by Bargain Betty on: August 13, 2005 05:46:02 PM
I tried a test of a dark t-shirt transfer on a white shirt and it worked just as well as doing one on a dark t-shirt.

Here's my test shirt (It's "The Many Moods of Tom Peters", a character from the cartoon, "Tom Goes to the Mayor" on [adultswim]:

I will never go back to white t-shirt transfers again!!! Cool

7  Bumper stickers & fridge magnets in Completed Projects by Bargain Betty on: July 29, 2005 09:41:44 AM
I've recently gotten into building graphic stuff in Photoshop and QuarkXPress (husband is a graphic designer) and I do signatures for the different messageboards I'm on. I was in Big Lots and found some super cheap sticky paper and my little brain said, "Hey, what about bumper stickers?" And it just got addictive from there... Wink

Since I'm a big fan of [adultswim]'s show "Tom Goes to the Mayor" and its creators, Tim and Eric, I made a set of bumper stickers of their stuff first:

I made magnets too. Smiley

The sticker paper is Hammermill Outdoor Labels that I got at Big Lots. It's v. sticky and is supposed to last in outside conditions. The magnet paper is awesome! It's Avery Magnet Sheets. I got it at Walmart and you just send it through your inkjet. It prints like a dream!

If anyone's looking for a great printer to do this type of graphic work on, I just bought a Canon Pixma ip3000 and it's heavenly! I got it for $49 after rebate. Cheesy The ink is really cheap too and really lasts!
