Holy crap, I finished a project! [Aug. 31st, 2008|12:32 am]
simple pleasures of everyday life


[mood |contentcontent]

I am pleased as punch with how it turned out. This feeling is definitely a simple joy for me.

This thing has been in the works for a year at least (by which I mean that I bought a hoodie, fabric paint, and stencil sheets a year ago.) I tried to cut out one stencil, f-ed it up, and then forgot about it.

I free-handed it. The glows were a quick solution for a mistake that I ended up liking.

Closeups of each Chakra will be posted if you're really interested. :P

So, anyone with fabric paint experience: I heat-set the paint, but I'm not sure it will stay put- am I going to have to hand wash this or can it go in the machine in cold water or what? Paint bottle gives me no answers!

That's awesome! I myself have been meaning to make a hoodie with fabric paint but have also been afraid of the paint running/fading/bleeding. I think I may just use spray paint anyhow. Lol.

I used textile paint, which (after heat setting) isn't supposed to run... we'll see how that goes.

It's a very satisfying feeling, no? Since you have some time on your hands, maybe you should work on one?

LOL! It looks great, but also makes me laugh, since it's like a visual quip. That's pretty awesome! I like the glows.

I spent about seven months of doing nothing between the beginning and end of a creative project myself, and yeah, that's just a good feeling. Especially if you like the end product. Glad you finished yours!
