Button's Almost Complete

Button Making almost complete...

Here's all the finished ones, I love them all for different reasons, they're all so unique and they definitely fit with my sketchbook, so they'll fit nicely with my garments to when they're made, which I'll be getting into again this week again, I'll update you on my process :)

These I think would maybe look nice on a necklace so I think I'll use them for that instead, which will be good for my photoshoot, I plan on doing a few necklaces with the left over buttons to.

Coloured clay, not as dark as we'd expected but they still fit with my colour palette and I really like them

These remind me of 101 Dalmatians haha, still love them though.

Thinking of using these on the cape I'm going to make I think they'll fit best with the design, we'll see once its part made up.

They're pure white so the flash blew them out but they're quite nice.

BIG buttons! :D

More coloured clay...

These had bits on top but they cracked and fell off, but I like them plain anyway, love the way the colour has bled into them.

Coloured clay again.

Stretched coloured clay, it makes a skin effect.

Last of the coloured clay and finished buttons...

Buttons waiting to be fired, they'll come out darker and shiny I'll show you once they are done. The white ones also have crackle glaze on, which once in the cilm it cracks and goes deep into the cracks and shows them up more, you then go over them with acrylic ink to show it up even more, but as I said I'll show you once they're done.

This isn't mine, but when putting my buttons in the line to be glaze fired, I found this! Some TOTALLY AWESOME person made a panda, its so awesome, I so love pandas, perhaps maybe a tiny bit obsessed... but yeah, its EPIC and I love it, so thought I'd share it with you :)

That's all from me tonight, hopefully have something more to show you tomorrow.

Screen Printing - Bitmapping

So the other day at uni we learnt a little tip to add depth to our screen prints, its called bitmapping
First load the image you want to use in photoshop Heres mine - its something I'm looking at using for mothers day

The you'll need to convert you image to Grayscale - to do this go to [Image] [Mode] [Grayscale]

You'll then need to adjust the contrast of the image to help add depth later - to do this [Image] [Adjustment] [Levels], play around with the slider until you get the desired effect - you can also use [Brightness/contrast] but I prefer Levels

Your image must be a minimum of 150ppi, although it is better to be 300ppi. To adjust the number of pixels within your image select [Image] [Image Size] and you can change the resolution

Now its time to Bitmap the image - to do this go to [Image] [Mode] [Bitmap] - this will open this window change all of the settings to be the same as those in the image. Depending on your type of screen mesh you may need to adjust the Bitmap output …

Roberto Cavalli Fashion Illustrations

While I was a Fashion and Textiles Design student I was forever looking for the top designer's fashion illustrations, as I always found them so inspirational. I've recently stumbled across some I really love by Roberto Cavalli, so I thought I share them with you.
This first two are designs made for Cindy Crawford and Georgia May Jagger, and they are amazing.

This one below is for the lovely Sharon Stone. The snake back detail will look incredible, and adds a perfect little twist to the classic strapped back/backless dress.

The next one was designed for Liu Wen, and it's my favourite. The colour and the indication of the pattern are beautiful. I love the expressive lines of the design and how subtle shading shows how the dress will fall. You could only expect the best from an amazing designer like Roberto Cavalli and he definitely delivers.

There is no need to try and imagine how the finished dress would look as you can see it below. The outcome is just as stunning as the …

10 Most Shocking Tennis Outfits Ever

This week sees the start of Wimbledon and as Wimbledon is the smartest, most well dressed tournament there is, I thought it would be fun if we looked back at some of tennis' biggest fashion blunders.
At number 10 we have Anne White from Wimbledon, it may have been 1985 Anne but that doesn't excuse turning up in your pyjamas to work.

Next up we have tennis' very own Lady Gaga, Bethanie Mattek, who is famous for her outrageous dress sense, although this outfit from the 2007 US Open is relatively tame for her.

At number 8 we have the five times Wimbledon champion Serena Williams with her biker inspired look from the Australian Open in 2004. Nice shin pads Serena.

At number 7 sees Bethanie again, this time dressed as a cowgirl at the 2005 US Open. You're playing tennis Beth, not attending a fancy dress party! 

Bethanie is still holding on to the title of worst dressed tennis player at number 6, sporting this design from Alex Nomble at Wimbledon 2011. Tennis balls are what…
