FMA decals! And a screenshot request! :)  

I made them at work. :) I'm gonna end up sticking these on every conceivable thing possible. :X


FMA Sheet Music!

I might stick some red ones on myself at Anime Expo even though I'm not cosplaying. ;b

I also want to make a decal of the Sins' tattoo...does anyone have a really clear straight-on screenshot or image of it?

Oh! It's so cool! ^_^

It's not a screenshot, but it's the best I have.

I think I can work with that. ^_^ Thank you.

Other pictures are still welcome. The more references the better. :)

Those are frickin awesome! How did you make them?

Did the vector artwork by recreating it in Adobe Illustrator. E-mailed the file to myself at work, converted it to a cuttable file, and cut adhesive vinyl material with backing using a hybrid printer (it prints and cuts!) The vinyl is basically what everyone uses for their car decals. :)

Then I have a flat sheet of vinyl with cut lines. Using an exacto knife, I weed out all the pieces that aren't going to be part of decal.

Then to apply it (because I am ghetto and don't have application tape), I used scotch tape the length of the decal to pick it up and then stick the whole thing on whatever surface. Scotch tape was pretty strong, so I stuck it on my shirt and arm and stuff before putting it over the vinyl so it wouldn't permanently adhere.

...and that's where babies come from!

That's really cool. I bet my dad has stuff at his work to make decals and whatnot. Now if only we could just figure out how to make tatoos...
Simonsfk_for_short on June 27th, 2004 08:25 am (UTC)
Well, I actually thought about making tattoos before I did decals...but the waterslide paper for it seems too pricey ($19 at the cheapest, plus shipping online, no matter where I look). There's non-water tattoo paper available, but I don't think they work as well.
Colleenwater_alchemist on June 27th, 2004 04:22 pm (UTC)
That expensive! Ah, I'm pretty sure they'll come out with tatoos before long. I'll keep my eye out for them when I go to Japan in September. They might have them in those little machines like you find at K-mart, or the bowling alley.

uwah i would love to have some of those *o* great stuff. :D

Heh, catch me at AX and I'll give you one. Or you could mail me a stamped, self-addressed envelope. ;p If you're interested, let me know...I actually have quite a few. Mostly black and red, a few white. I may end up selling the rest on ebay or something.

You mean the vector art? Or just a high res jpeg? I'm sort of opposed to putting up vector art for grabs because then anybody can do who knows what with it. >_>;;; I'd put up a nice jpeg though.

If you really want some, see above comment of mine. :)

Simonsfk_for_short on June 28th, 2004 08:20 am (UTC)
Mmm-hmmm. I just finished the artwork for my Sins decal yesterday. ;) Turned it into an icon while I was at it!
