When your work goes from screen to tangible.

Ok, I previously posted some info on vectors, which are nice.
But whats even nicer, is when you can get your work from
the screen and make it more tangible. Now I'm lucky enough to
have the opportunity to be able to.

While most of you are probably thinking of printing, which is
nice also of course, I think most of you will like this also:

This one is from Afro FM.
The "print" (can't find a better word for it, but actually its being heat pressed on)
is made of a very thin layer of rubber called "Superflex".

It starts off with a whole roll of this, which is loaded into
a plotter, which cuts the pattern following a loaded vector image
(thats where the vectors come in).

After that, you have to manually remove the excessive Superflex from
around the image you eventually want.

Once that is done, it's press-ready.

Pressing is done at a heat of 170C for 17 seconds with quite some pressure,
hard to give an exact example, but you don't want to get stuck in between.

So after the 17 seconds you let it cool down a bit and than remove the backing.

The image above is one of the examples of what the end result can be.

Although the menu is still under construction, here are some more examples
of clothing I made.
