I've written an image transfer tutorial and i thought it might be useful to some craftsters here. The tutorial is on my blog though. Can i post the link when i make a thread or do i have to copy the whole tutorial into the thread?


3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / i am a very stylish girl pendants on: March 10, 2007 07:31:58 AM
I made my first clay pendants  Smiley I never thought polymer clay could be so much fun.  I used retro pictures from the sixties and added a few rhinestones ( the hot fix type, they glued themselves to the clay while baking). I'm thinking of putting them on a silver wire choker or turn them into earrings...what do you think?

I love Irregular Choice's Blythe shoes collection, but i have very difficult feet, so buying shoes online is out of the question. So instead, i made my own pair of blythe shoes :i went shopping and found a very comfortable pair! I copied the picture of my blythe bag and used it for my shoes, then added of pink paint and a few rhinestones...and here's my new pair Smiley
I made matching earrings with the left overs:

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Digital Artwork Coat on: November 15, 2006 07:45:04 AM
My digital artwork..now on a coat! Wink I transferred the images onto cotton appliques, then i added lots of beads to each applique and sewed them onto the coat. And last but not least, i painted silver squares all over it.

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Mixing resin...i don't get it? on: October 23, 2006 06:57:20 AM
I've been looking for shops in my area that sell epoxy resin, but found none. I ended up buying  Rayher polyester cast resin, but i don't understand the mixing instructions!I asked the shop keeper, but he didn't know either. Is there anyone that can help me out and tell me how many drops i need per ml? I'm terrible at maths!

Quoting Rayher's Instructions : Polyester cast resin based on two component is a high-quality to make crystal clear objects [...] Polyester cast resin hardens after a short time by adding 1-2% hardener. (1 ml = ca. 40 drops)

The little bottle contains 5 ml, which would be equal to 200 drops. The resin can contains 250 ml, so how many drops do i need per ml?

Thanks for looking!
9  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Around the world in 80 stamps : shoes and a bag! on: October 20, 2006 06:03:14 AM

Here's a makeover of a boring pair of high heels and a vintage bag. The bag was orginally black, the shoes shiny wine red ( vinyl, i think).
I used real stamps, hopefully not any precious or rare ones as they were part of some granny's postage stamp collection.

10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Iron-on on leather and vinyl! on: October 05, 2006 07:06:43 AM
I'm new here-well not really, i have been reading on craftster a lot- it's my first post. I was wondering if any of you tried using iron-ons on other things than just fabrics? I've been experimenting on leather and vinyl and i think it gives a nice vintage look. What are your experiences with other materials ?
