21  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Acrylic w/Fabric Medium Logo on: February 10, 2006 06:14:36 PM
I don't know if this is the right section....Anyways- here it is. 

Though I really want to learn how to use a silkscreen, I have found that for the one time deal - using acrylics with fabric medium mixed it seems to work pretty well.  I just draw the logo out with pencil then paint away.  It's important to use a small stiff brush to get the lines to be ultra straight.  One draw back is that the medium I use says to wait 7 days!!!!! before heat setting with an iron.  I can never wait that long, but nothing really bad has occurred, so maybe that is just a "guideline."  Does anyone know a medium that takes less time?  Or any other experiences using this kind of technique?   Here is an example of one logo I did.  (sorry for the image quality)

22  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Better late than never: Jeans + Pillowcases + Sweater = XMas Stocking! on: February 10, 2006 05:56:35 PM
I know this is a little late for the XMas Season, but I just got up the nerve to post Shocked)  So this is My XMas stocking I made out of an old pair of jeans for the "stocking;" the top is a pillow case; left patch is a pillow case; and toe is a sweater that kept rolling up at the hem.  The whole thing is hand sewn. I basted the jeans "stockings" together and reinforced it with the large yarn stitch. I have made this type of stockings for some of my friends.  Everyone seems to agree that using the back pocket is an added bonus because its other place to stick stuff!  Hope you enjoy.  Thanks! (sorry for image quality)

23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tank Top Recon w/Painted Logo (Image Hvy) on: February 10, 2006 05:47:22 PM
This is my first post ever, so please be kind.  I was bored at work yesterday and I came across this Recon Project Sunnyb64 posted back in December, so I decided to try it.  Here are my results.  I used 3 different shirts and painted to logo on the white with acrylic mixed with fabric medium.  I also used a black sharpie to make the lines extra sharp.  The logo is a joke between my friends and I. Overall I think it turned out pretty rad.    Here is the link to the Tut Sunnyb64 put up:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=44466.0

Thanks for the great idea and tut Sunnyb64!  I look forward to making many more Tanks!
