1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Unglefor: A T-shirt Project. The exhibition on: June 18, 2007 11:16:20 AM
Hi guys!
I just thought I'd let you know that my work is being exhibited right now in Manchester, Uk. You can find details of how to get there here http://www.artdes.mmu.ac.uk/degreeshow/ and I'm on the Interactive Art's course.

There was a post a couple of weeks ago here by another person who found out about my project, but there were no images included. You can get to the website that I made for the project http://www.finestimaginary.com/unglefor and see loads and read about it, but here's some other photos from the exhibition!

The project involves a range of screen-printed t-shirts that you can cut out and make a creature from. The creatures are called ungleforians and are from the forest of Unglefor Smiley The project also involved the website and a set of screen printed hand-bound books! Please check out the website for more images and information Smiley

There's more of those at my flickr account, http://flickr.com/photos/finestimaginary/, too!

Unfortunately some of my work was already stolen Sad one of the handmade books, so they're no longer being exhibited.

2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Where to start?! on: May 22, 2007 12:59:53 PM
I've never ventured into handmade cosmetics, and the closest I've got to bath products is brown sugar scrubs... I'd really love to get into this as I love love baths & sheer indulgent body products!

Any tips on where to begin? Where to buy supplies, I'm in the UK.
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / my new craft-dump blog website... any ideas for links? on: February 11, 2007 08:26:35 AM
http://www.fairystars.co.uk was my old domain, before I got finestimaginary.com. Yesterday I overhauled and turned fairystars into my craft-dump blog, a place for everything that doesn't fit onto finestimaginary (which is a more professional portfolio, and store website). I really want ideas for links and stuff for fairystars now, any ideas? Take a look at the links I have already =) If you have a nice webstore/craft site that you'd like linking, please let me know! We could do a link exchange?
4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Looking for certain artists who deal with fabric sculpture... help? on: January 09, 2007 05:11:14 AM
Hi guys! I'm looking for names of any artists, exhibitions, or even events that have primarily involved scultures made of fabric/textiles.

Basically, for my degree show I'm having a make-believe forest that's made from canvas with occasional prints etc. I've love any artists that have made flowers/trees/plants out of fabric, knit, crochet or the like. Would love web links or even 'I remember this guy who did such and such with canvas/wool/cotton' cos even that would give me a starting point! Smiley

x-posted to several comm's and boards!
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Creatures! part of a larger project. on: November 30, 2006 07:27:55 AM

more images on my flickr, http://flickr.com/photos/finestimaginary/.

First working out of some creatures I'm making as part of a larger, installation style project. Looking at shapes and surface designs with these 3, I like the results so far! Any input would be excellent, though, suggestions?
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Stiffening fabric... canvas in particular on: November 03, 2006 02:53:47 AM
I'm wanting to do some sculpture with canvas fabric, I've heard of starch spray but I don't think that will create the stiffness I need...
I need to be able to fold/crease/roll and for the fabric to retain it's shape (maybe with a few stiches here and there, and invisible gluing).
I've thought about using glue to cover the fabric before using, but that would make it shiney...

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Owls and Pumpkin's. I wouldn't say they're toys so.... on: October 22, 2006 09:02:05 AM
Hey guys! I've been busy this week working on some designs for my up and coming store opening, These tiny owl guys will be available in different sizes and stuff. I've been working on smaller ones, hopefully keyrings, this week!

made from random fabrics, with felt details. And thanks to those who informed me of ladder stitch!!!

I've also been making some tiny pumpkin's for a few halloween swaps that i'm working on...

There's more photos over at my http://flickr.com/photos/finestimaginary/

Also, I think i might include these owls, or some kind of hybrid of these owls, in my university project to do with paper/plastic/fabric gardens!!! Smiley

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / How to turn seams after stuffing....? on: October 19, 2006 12:54:37 PM
Ok so I've got a semi-finished piece, but with a huge hole where the stuffing went in. Now how do I turn the seams so they go inside and no stitching is on the outside? like the rest of the edges?
9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Blythe doll silhouette copper embossing and intricate detailing! on: October 18, 2006 03:00:22 AM
Ah! I'm posting all over the place today, anyway, this image was created in photoshop but I wanted to make an embossed piece with the image. I printed the image out, and used that a refernce when transferring it to thin copper... Here're the results!

It's a lovely process and gives great results! unfortunately, the copper isn't the cheapest thing to come by in craft stores >.<

Oh, and I made an embossed crown repeated image,too! Again, used an image I created in photoshop and printed out for refernce when embossing...

10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Blythe doll silhouette print + gem detail! on: October 18, 2006 02:55:10 AM
Hi guys! I'm pretty new here so i'm basically just posting a few past projects of mine! This project was part of my second year degree work, I was working with a vector image I'd created. I've printed this image on various media, including t-shirts, the work below however is what I made for my course...

Printed onto a shiny surface paper. Unfortunately the screen started to bleed etc. I have a new screen now with better quality fabric...

A close up!

And printing on a different paper... I love how this turned out, actually!
