How to Start Screen Printing Add a more graphic dimension to your art work with this easy-to-follow beginner's guide to screen printing. The results may look far more impressive and detailed but at its heart, screen printing is basically a stencilling process. The paint is applied directly on a silk screen stretched between a wooden frame, but it is the stencil beneath which controls where the paint mix settles. Like many printing processes, screen printing has its origins in the Far East but it only really began to gain popularity in Europe at the start of the 20th century, when fine silk meshes became more readily available. In the 1960s, the process became synonymous with Andy Warhol, whose famous Pop Art renditions of Marilyn Monroe, electric chairs and soup cans were all variations on screen printing, using photo emulsion. However, the basic medium has many advantages of its own. PreparationMix up equal amounts of acrylic paint with a clear printing medium. Artists and Illustrators

Faire un moule en silicone et matrice Ultracal You'll need lots of stuff. Fortunately, it's pretty easy to find. From an SFX house (I like Silpac inc and Motion Picture FX Company): RTV silicone. From your shed: Clamps Old crappy slotted screwdriver Chip brush (to cut down) Power Drill 1/4" twist bit 1" spade bit duct tape From your trash: Old plastic container small water bottle cardboard disposable foil pan or takeout container (clean) Popsicle stick From your artbox: craft knife sulfur-free plastecine sculpting tools hot glue gun scissors (to cut down your chip brush) Also: small scale whatever material you are going to use for your final cast (I used low-temp metal, but resin, sfx gelatin, plaster, etc will all work fine with this type of mold.)

Maryland Department of the Environment - Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps As a homeowner, it is important that you know your current and future flood risk status. To help aid your research, the Maryland Department of the Environment has created the Flood Risk Application to help you make informed decisions about flood risk. This step-by-step interactive process is designed to help you understand your flood risk and what your next steps should be based on your personalized results. How Updated DFIRMs Affect You The DFIRMs are being released on a community by community basis. DFIRM Updates and Your Insurance If your building is not currently in the floodplain, but will be in the future based on the updated DFIRM, it is important to get your insurance before the updated maps become effective, as you may qualify for a plan at a reduced rate. Talking to your insurance provider is recommended if your building is in or out of the floodplain to make sure you are protected.

Hair Ties Made with DIY Pipe Cleaner Roses My niece made me a rose pipe cleaner ring for Mother’s Day and I thought it was such a cute craft, I had to make some for myself. Instead of making it into a ring, I decided to wrap the roses around hair ties to create adorable hair accessories! These would make the cutest favors for a birthday party, or you could even tie them around the top of a gift bag to add a little something extra. Pipe Cleaners in the color of your choice for the rose (I used Pink)Green Pipe CleanersElastic Hair Ties Line up six colored pipe cleaners and place the hair tie in the center. Twist the piper cleaners around the elastic band twice. Take the end of each pipe cleaner and bend slightly. Continue to bend and roll each of the 6 (now 12) pipe cleaner strands until they meet in the center. You will end up with something like the image below. Now, you will want to shape your rose. Attach the green pipe cleaner to the bottom of the rose. Bend the end of the green pipe cleaner over about 1.5 cm. About Rena

Super Sculpey This stuff is really, really hard to break once it's baked. I used it to make a set of discs for a prop on a costume, and as an experiment, baked one disc and tried to break it. I expected it to come crumbling apart, but it took a TON of force, almost more than I could manage with just my hands, to snap the piece in half. My only complaints are that--first of all--it's pretty hard to mold on it's own. The other complaint is that it smokes a TON when I bake it. This could be normal--I don't have the experience with polymer clays to say otherwise--but it does effect how often I feel up to making figurines.
