2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone know where I can get wholesale blank shirts for printing? on: March 05, 2006 04:29:10 PM
I ordered 6 dozen shirts from Baselin Clothing a couple of years a go.  I dealt with  a guy named Al.  He was very helpful and the shirts were great.  I was able to get six dozen assorted sizes and colors for $18.00 a dozen.  I think that was the price.

I think I'm a horrible person. The first thing that popped in my mind was "It's not funny to kick a pregnant woman in the belly." Then I realized you meant the baby was kicking, but yeah, I'm going to hell.

I thought the same thing, at first.  See you there!

A friend of mine had a similar shirt, although it was just created with sharpies, that said, "When I'm an NFL kicker, I'll buy my mommy a Benz."  That may never happen (although I wish it would!) because the baby they were SURE was going to be a boy turned out to be a girl.  Surprise!

That's crazy!  I've always joked that if I had a boy I would raise him to be an NFL kicker.  That was an inside joke aspect of the shirt.  I figure If a kid is raised from the get go to be a kicker, he'll be the best damn kicker the NFL has ever seen.  Then Daddy gets a Cadillac.

Thank you guys for your kind words.  The kicker shirt was a huge success.  She loved it so much, she wore it to Christmas dinner (both dinners).  Everyone got a "kick" out of it. (nice one mims!)

That is very interesting.  I do believe I will attemp some multi color prints now.

Here's a shirt I made for a friend's son.  I stole the idea from a shirt I saw on the internet.  Turned out pretty good, I think.

I just finished this shirt for my pregnant wife.  The image is located around the belly area.  I'll take a pic of her wearing it after Xmas.  It's gonna be a gift.  I hope you guys like it.

I would say any number of things could be the problem.  Did you use the celedon on any other pots (without the dots)?  If so, were they murky?  If you didn't quite reach cone 10 or hold cone 10 long enough, that can make some celedon recipes milky instead of nice and clear.  If I'm envisioning what you are describing correctly, it probably was the amount of iron dots, actually changing the recipe during the firing.  All that iron could have mixed with the celedon during melting.  Or I could be totally wrong.

I should be a potter.  I have a degree in fine arts (pottery) from UF.  But after I graduated, my big dreams of making a living as a potter were replaced with bills and mortgage payments and "real" jobs.  I have a studio with all my gear in it, I just never use it.  I have no way to glaze fire my work.  I work in cone 10 porcelain and stoneware, with celedons mostly.  Soda firing is my ideal atmosphere, and unless the kiln fairy shows up with a load of bricks and some burners, I don't know what I'm gonna do. 

I've been inspired lately and I may just clean up my studio tonight and get my hands dirty.

It would be nice if their were a pottery/ceramics board here.  Might keep me motivated and inspired.

If anyone has any questions relating to pottery, I likely have the answer or could at least get it.  Feel free to ask.
