Creating Multi-Color Appliqu
Creating Multi-Color Appliqu?s
My day, Wednesday, started off as any normal day of mine. I slept in late, got up, checked my email and watched TV. I noticed my old case sitting in the corner, and the window looked boring without an appliqu?. I had planned on going to the local vinyl decal shop and getting something printed up for it; however, I wanted to do something different. This is what I came up with.
It's really easy to do, too. What you need to do is load up your favorite graphics program, and get your image all ready to go. You'll need to print a few times to make sure that the size is correct. Once it's ready to go, save it as 24 bit bitmap and save it to a disk, if it fits, or CD, and take it to your local Kinko?s. Tell them you want it printed out on a transparency. This is what they?ll hand you.
Take that sheet and place it onto your window. Align it how you want to, and then use scotch tape to adhere it to the unseen trim of your window- the part that hangs over the case edge that isn't visible from the outside, like this.
There you have it. I haven't added light to this case yet, but I'm sure it'll look rad with a blue tube behind it. Here is a closer shot of the finished product.
