3  The Rocketz!! in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by red_pen on: October 12, 2007 08:18:59 AM
i think i'm getting better at this, and the curtain sheer actually give quite a bit of detail. so i made the screen yesterday and then i didn't know what to burn on it and i was trying to draw things that would be cool and i looked on the internet and nothing was working and then it popped! The Rocketz!! they rock! i need a t-shirt! totally. so it's technically supposed to be white ink on black, but i wasn't really thinking and pulled out the first blank shirt i had in my drawer, but it's cool. this time i was really patient and i got a small fan so the screen dried in an hour, and i put the fan on it after i washed out the screen and it was ready to use! i was thinking that most of the detail would get washed out because of the bigger mesh of curtain sheer but it did surprisingly well i think, you can even see that it says rocketz on the skeletons jacket!! and the name of the artist johnny crap, they're really distorted but you can tell for the most part. whew that was a lot of blabbering

5  first screen print!! in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by red_pen on: October 06, 2007 10:51:27 PM
man i've been waiting to do this for so long!! i finally bought photo emulsion on a whim last week and then i gathered up all the other things i needed. i found a picture frame for a dollar and thought i could use the glass and the wood frame for my first try and it totally worked!! i just need to work on my patience.

i couldn't decide on what to do so i just went with a simple skull and cross bones

here is my little screen i have to remember not to use hot water when washing this out and remember to let it dry afterwards cause i got green stains on my shirt now, but i LOVE how the print came out. also i didn't use regular silk screen i used some curtain sheer that i bought for the mod podge style printing and i think it worked great, but obviously not for high detail but it worked great for this one. please tell me what you think and share any tips, also can i ask what is the usual drying time for photo emulsion when you first put it on, for an almost 8 by 10 size frame? everywhere i look it says wait until it dries, is it just that it's so varied that you just have to wait? it took hours it seemed for me.

6  Crocheted "leather" Motorcycle Jacket (pic heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by red_pen on: July 30, 2007 10:47:31 PM
well at long last i finally finished this after working for weeks to work out my own pattern from complete scratch and then just working it up and then having to get more yarn to finish it. i'm pretty happy with this. it's bulky but so are real ones so i'm cool. it's not completely finished i still have to completely reinforce the main zipper and add some more snaps(have to get more) to the lapels to hold them in place and make them look better. also i will be adding a belt to the bottom to make it more accurate to a real jacket it will be crocheted as well as will the belt loops of course.

here it is layed out

here's the little money pouch pocket deal

here is the diagonal pocket which was a real pain to do

real jackets have zippers on the cuff too but i didn't think i could handle any more

here is the collar and the lapels, they're kind of ify but they'll do

and here it is in action modeled by yours truely Smiley

7  the clash and two misfits things in Stenciling: Completed Projects by red_pen on: June 10, 2007 10:40:13 PM
ok so i know i do a lot of misfits stuff but i mean it's just good stuff so here they are

misfits skulls on the outside of my boots

i did them a week or so ago so they're starting to crack and look cool.

my girlfriend wanted this shirt so i made it for her i think she looks quite hot

i was looking for clash images on google and i found this one it's the cover for the Straight to Hell single (a very good song i love it you should listen to it) but i had never seen this before but i fell in love with it. it took me awhile to get everything perfect in photoshop and then i took a week on and off to cut it out so i wouldn't make any mistakes but of course i did but i love it any way.

9  secretions in Stenciling: Completed Projects by red_pen on: May 26, 2007 02:00:13 PM
so i say to myself the secretions are f'in great so i made a simple stencil and i finally caved in and used the freezer paper method and i f'in love it too!! i like how i can be more reckless while putting the paint on cause the stencil stays down and the no bleeding creates really crispy edges. say hello to a converted man.

10  MISFITS! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by red_pen on: May 23, 2007 08:43:05 PM
so i've had this sweater that i stenciled the crimson ghost on the back for awhile and recently i decided that it needed to be a zip up! so i went for it i cut up the front and "sewed" in a black zipper. i wanted a pink one but i couldn't find one, but i guess i could always change it if i wanted. also i thought this had to have the words Misfits on the front so i did that as well. here it is.

i forgot to take a picture of the front before i put in the zipper

close up

misfits kick ass and i think this turned out perfect
