11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Leather? on: April 08, 2008 05:25:13 PM
I got a journal for my bf and am screen printing chapter pages within the journal. It's leather bound and I got the idea that I'd like to print the cover as well. I've never printed on leather so I was wondering if anyone had advice.

You can get large sheets of glass from auto repair shops, they'll even cut it for you. I have left over sheets from stained glass work that I still use.

Since he took the class at etsy I'm sure they told him Standard Screen Supply for the rest of his printing supplies?

Your image would come out with less detail and possible show blurry. It depends on the mesh count of the screen in the kit. The higher the mesh count the more detail will show on paper. They probably included a lower mesh count screen, somewhere around 110-160. If it's on the higher side you could have a decent print on paper, it just will lose detail.

Find out the mesh count of the screen and you should know whether or not its even worth attempting to print on paper. You could buy a small higher mesh count screen for about $12 on its own.

It shouldn't matter what side you print on. If you're printer doesn't use a toner I'd recommend printing the image then photocopying it onto the transparency. If the image is still slightly light you can just fill in with sharpie.

Thanks for the comments. I'm happy with how it turned out because my mother absolutely loved it.

Muffins, I'm sorry about your aunt. My grandma sent out magnets to all of us that say "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly." I was browsing etsy recently and there is a seller that sells a wall decal with the same phrase. just sharing  Wink

16  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Butterfly Shadow Box on: March 31, 2008 10:27:50 AM
So this project comes along with a story. My grandfather passed away in late summer, since then we have kind of affiliated any sight of a butterfly with him being around. This started when my grandmother started taking note that whenever she felt most down a butterfly would show up and stick around, sometimes even groups. The same happened to my mother, whenever she was really missing him a butterfly would of course pop-up.

About 5 or 6 months ago she found a butterfly in the backyard, its life had already expired so she brought it inside and kept it in on the counter in a little dish. I know that's kind of morbid. . .but it continued to sit there until this past weekend.

My moms birthday was Saturday so I decided to make her a shadow box for her butterfly. I used papers, stamps, metal decorations, and fake flowers. In person it looks like the butterfly is in flight or near landing on one of the little flowers I put in the box, which has about 1 inch depth

I made this shirt for my sister who has learned ASL over the last few years. She's started teaching recently.

It says "somebody loves me". I made the print for her bday.

This is her modeling one of the shirts.

My mothers b-day was yesterday so my sister and I decided to make a cake. We made our own fondant out of a marshmallow recipe. It was supposed to sit over night but we didn't have time for that, as you see it's a bit uneven since we didn't get to let it sit  Sad

We stenciled it with a gun, hahaha, because my mom is a cop. Except our gun is much prettier, friendlier looking with blue sparkles. We airbrushed it with food color spray through a stencil I cut out.

me with the cake!

my sister mixing the fondant, it was super messy
