cripery's 'customizing'

Post  cripery on Tue Jul 01, 2014 6:25 am

So, I dabble a little at customizing and thought it'd be nice to have a topic of a few pieces I've worked on.. Really just kitbashes to be honest.

Anyway, I posted on IG this guy a while ago when I was working on him.  Cr[ooze] missile:




- modded silenced smp5
- modded [cr]ooze missile RPG
- custom meat knife
- custom lenses

I probably made it unnecessarily complicated but I wanted to try a bit of mould making and resin casting, plus I didn't want to 'ruin' a real rpg.

So, I took the green rpg off of a spare SA launcher I had.  Just heated it up and tugged and twisted it until it came free.  The fins are separate to the main body of the rocket, so they needed gluing back together.

I then made a two part rubber mould of the original rocket.  That allowed me to then cast a couple of blank copies of the original rocket that I could mess around with trying to get the ooze effect.  After a couple of aborted efforts I eventually got something I was fairly happy with, I basically used Milliput rolled and laid and sculpted onto the rocket copy.

Then, I made another mould of my modified copy, as I wanted to be able to make multiple copies of the ooze rocket as I knew I'd probably have to experiment with painting it before getting something decent.  So, I made a couple of resin casts of the ooze rocket and basically painted it.  I found a suitably glossy black model paint that when dried looked fairly close to the glossy plastic of the retail ooze.

The only other thing I had to do was because my cast was a solid piece of resin I had to drill a large hole in the centre of the fins (about 8mm) so that the new rocket could actually be slid onto the original launcher.

The whole process was very time consuming but it was a good learning process too.  It also made me really appreciate the amount of time/effort and huge amounts of skill & patience that professional customizers/designers must have to come up with some of the amazing creations we see on a regular basis.

Re: cripery's 'customizing'

Post  cripery on Fri Aug 22, 2014 6:03 am

So, I've been making a couple of custom tees lately using iron-on, inkjet printable, transfer paper.

It seems that there are pretty much two types of paper you can get - the type intended for application to dark fabric and the type intended for use on light fabric. The difference being that the white paper stays white on the dark fabric type (therefore obscuring everything beneath the transfer), where as the white paper turns transparent on the light fabric type (thereby allowing the fabric colour to show through on any white areas of the transfer).

I ended up buying 4 different packs. 2 light & 2 dark. One of the light packs and one of the dark packs were more expensive than the other two packs and I think it is a case of you get what you pay for.  Whilst the cheaper paper worked OK I found the finished transfer ended up looking very 'plasticy' and glossy and raised from the fabric itself.  I also ended up accidentally melting a couple of these transfers.  The more expensive type produced a much more matt looking end result, as if the transfer were more melted into the fabric.

I remember using this type of paper 20+ years ago when I was printing band t-shirts (ahh, the good old days ;-) ) and it definitely seems to have improved somewhat in the interim.  The quality is much better and there is no need to mirror the image before printing like I remember having to do in the past.

So, I won't do a real detailed tutorial on actually using this stuff.. - There are plenty of guides and videos on the Interwebs and the paper I bought came with some decent enough instructions on use.  Here's just a quick summary with some pics of my latest one:

- You're going to want to use a reasonably hi-res source image, so that when you print it out it's nice and smooth looking with no jagged edges.  Here's some logos on the PC, ready to be printed out:



- And here's a similar set of logos printed out on the dark-type transfer paper:



- It goes without saying that you're going to want to do some test-printing on plain paper before wasting your valuable transfer paper.  You need to make sure you leave enough room between images to cut them out, unlike what I've accidentally done in the picture ;-).

- Then you need to employee your very best cutting out skills... though depending on what paper you're using and what colour tee you're printing on, it sometimes doesn't matter how neat your edges are.  If I do many more circular ones I might invest in a little circle cutting tool of some description. :



- Then you just remove the backing paper from the transfer and apply it to a tee.  I always test a couple of these on an old human sized tee of a similar colour before trying it on a valuable Squadt sized tee!:



- You then cover the image with silicon paper before applying a hot iron to it:



- I used a standard household clothes iron, set to the highest temperature it would go, with no water in it, so there would be no steam.  I pressed fairly hard for about 20 seconds or so.  Though I'm sure this will vary between types of transfer paper.  Here's a few test transfers ironed onto a human size tester tee:



Here's the redjack logo ready to be ironed onto a Squadt tee.  In this case it's the back of the Fort Burnout shirt from PAC 6. I thought this would look particularly fetching on Redjack, as the arms of the tee will match his grey beanie hat ;-) :



And here's the finished article with the transfer ironed on:



Finally, here's Redjack enjoying his new garment:
