1  Zombie toy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Lizzybethdotnet on: May 27, 2009 08:28:44 AM

This was for a toy project at school back in the fall.  I knew I wanted to do something with magnets because they're just plain cool, and that eventually led me to the idea of making a zombie that comes apart.  He's got small rare earth magnets in the connecting parts of his torso, appendages, and the bottoms of his feet.

Made with super sculpy (half baked, then carved with flathead screwdrivers, then fully baked), 1/4" diameter rare earth magnet discs, super glue, spray primer, acrylic paint, and a lot of time.

2  katamari shirt in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by Lizzybethdotnet on: May 23, 2007 04:53:01 AM

This was a heat transfer poject for class and I've been wanting to make this for a few months now.  The katamari is made up of googled images, and a photo I took of two friends who've now graduated (Cry).  I used two transfers (you can see the seam...) to get it to wrap around, and it's on a black anvil tee.  I love t-shirts without side seams Smiley.

Based on the wounderful game Katamari Damacy.  If for some reason you haven't played it yet, well, you should.

3  squid in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by Lizzybethdotnet on: December 06, 2006 03:02:59 PM

Silk screened at school. It's a two color one wrapping around to the back a bit.
I did one on a camaflage shirt, a brown shirt (pictured here), and a charcoal shirt. The squid alone was also put onto a friend's white jacket

The story of the camoflage shirt is funny because it was for ryan but it was the shirt he was wearing that day, so he went around half the day without a shirt and had to keep his jacket zipped up. Fortunately the shirt finished drying right as the bell rang.
There were only two real problems with the shirts. I was using two transparencies laid over each other for the ink to get a larger design, but they shifted after I put the screen over them so ther'es a vertical shift of about half a centimeter where they meet. Also, on this shirt, one spot didn't get enough ink. Also, it came out kind of messed up on the seam, but I wasn't expecting anything spectacular there anyway.
I helped two other guys silkscreen today. We got 1 color on three shirts, 2 colors of a jacket, and the two colors on my three shirts done, along with all the other things like cleaning, masking, and mixing inks. I was in there for three hours and it was pretty sweet. Plus, all the shirts came out really awsome, even the fine detail of the squid.

4  acoustic racoon in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by Lizzybethdotnet on: September 09, 2006 07:34:06 PM
hehe, my first post in this section, or heat transfer for that matter...

A design for a friend which I drew/inked/scanned/photoshoped and was able to conviniently turn in as a project in graphic arts.  music =D
After a couple of washes it totally turned color though...

eww...  It looks like the magenta ink ran away or something...  Anybody know what exactly is the cause of this and how to avoid it reaccuring.  I don't want to screw up another shirt, even though I'd still wear it :p.

I got mine from SoonFamo-Artiste Friday morning and couldn't resist trying to put it together in the car before it was even light out.  It's like a puzzle, and in nine pieces.  Grin

7  reversible fabric cuff w/ watch in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Lizzybethdotnet on: July 18, 2006 01:09:13 PM
My first cuff made out of two of my favorite fabrics while at the beach.  Features a button on each side for reversibility.

action shot.

I just realized what to do with my watch which had broken off from its cheap plastic band, put it on cuffs!  I attached the red ribbon to the back of the watch, then the safety pins under the ribbon to attach it to my cuff.  I like the fact that I'll be able to put this to use with other cuffs I plan to make and wont be stuck with the typical watch.

8  little coin purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Lizzybethdotnet on: July 18, 2006 12:29:15 PM
I made this for my mom's birthday and she loves it.  She likes greens and cream colors so I used two green fabrics on the outside and a light gold one for the lining.  At the end I realized I hadn't cut enough fabric for it to close so I had to so some troubleshooting :/.  It's about 3"x3" and closes with velcro, made from some of the fabrics and threads Stephen Weaver swapped me.

here it is shut

9  Pineapple book in Completed Projects by Lizzybethdotnet on: July 12, 2006 08:57:32 AM
Another graphic arts project, to create a book with a creative binding.  I made up the little story and drew/photoshoped all the images, which probally took at least if not more time than the actual pineapple.  It's made out of different size circles of cardboad hot glued together.  The courogated edges were covered up with masking tape and the catches made of matte board scraps.  I then spraypainted the pieces which was fast but made them kind of stick to each other :/.

^Here's the pineaple put together

^The "pages" disassembled.

^And a shot of the little catch system I devised.  You slide the pages from left to right to "turn" the page and right to left when done with that page. The inside of the pages are hollow to allow for this, and I left an opening so you can take them apart.  I love making crafty workarounds for my crazy ideas.

10  faux silverware in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by Lizzybethdotnet on: July 11, 2006 01:34:08 PM
what a happy little family Smiley.

Sorry the photo's a bit blurry, the print actually came out clearer.  I touched up some of the areas that didn't go through in white with a tootpick.  This was made from a doodle of mine from almost a year ago that I've just been itching to put on a shirt.
