A lovely set of latex Gauntlets! Nicely done.
‘My Heart on My Sleeve’ G-loves… done!
Latex Crafting Corner:
What a lovely workspace for your latex crafting! Watch out that you don’t leave your projects out in the sunlight though.
The latex is suceptable to sun damage when it is “fresh”… once a garment is complete, you can treat it with Armor All or another rubber conditioner to help protect it from sun damage, but you can only do that when all your seam work is done - silicone based stuff in your seams will make them very weak.
Store your latex in a cool dark place, and don’t leave projects out “overnight” as the morning sun sometimes will give them a whiteish stain before you remember to put them away.
I can’t wait to see what capsulecouture starts making!
Set up the studio today and low and behold the first shipment arrived! Also Skippy seems to think it’s his studio as well, lol!
I had tons of photoshoots in the last two weeks, which means awesome pics of awesome things I’ve made thanks to elasticaengineering.com! Can’t wait to share!
Another one joins the www.sheetlatex.com crafting army!!!
I made a latex shirt for my first project! I cut up a shirt I didn’t like for a pattern and gave it about a half inch extra for seam allowance. It came out ok for a first try, and I think the hardest part was probably a toss up between cutting out the shapes with the rotary cutter and gluing the sleeves on.
Thanks KE for the latex and making it easy to try my hand at something new!
Thanks so much! Because of what you do, this is now what I can do!
I have four more yards of latex on the way! Weeeee!
(Those are hearts.) :D
Note from Elastica Engineering: We’re always super happy to see people all proud of their projects in latex! Great job on everything!
Purse by Anli: via sheetlatex.com
Oooh! A customer of ours put together a first project recently. With a mix of 4D rubber and some from www.sheetlatex.com she built herself a nice little purse. Just big enough to carry around some shiner and a sponge to touch up her outfit at a party!
This is a great example of the sort of thing you could make with our Latex Crafting Starter Kit.
Anyone else done something cool with our kits yet (and willing to share?) drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
