Thanks Jim. The sticker paper is described as "photo sticker paper", so I guess that it's photo paper with a sticky back. I might have to try it. I used regular photo paper on my contest pedal and used a viscous superglue to attach it.  You've got to be very careful when using glue because it's easy to get a little smudge on the graphic. That wouldn't be a problem with the paper that you use.

Great idea with the different pour on layers, that would look really 3-D. I just got the Aristocrat pour on but I haven't tried it yet. Finishing enclosures to look pro AND be durable is definitely an art. Besides etching, I haven't found a really solid way of doing color graphics. I've tried waterslides and they seem to stretch a bit, and photo paper is just too thick to hide the edges. Your Mutron looks fantastic Jim, and is the reason I bought the pour on  ;D Do you have any tips for a first timer?

John, you might try protecting you photo while handling and gluing, with frisket film. It's a very low tack plastic film used for masking on paper,  protects well and releases with ease. To further reduce the tack you could apply it first to another piece of paper before applying to your art. (And of course experiment with it on a non-critical piece of art just to be sure.) Available at art supply stores.

Thanks Dave. There's an art supply store nearby and I'll look for the frisket.

If you're lucky they might have it available as single 8x11 sheets so a very  small investment to check the feasability of the material for your needs.

Take care,

Just some resources for ideas:

Two editions of a modernist journal (Vorticist to be precise) called BLAST

http://dl.lib.brown.edu/pdfs/1144603354174257.pdf
Edition 2 with a few more clear graphics

http://dl.lib.brown.edu/pdfs/1143209523824858.pdf
Edition 1 - longer and well worth a read anyway. Sounds crazy/awesome now, imagine the reaction in 1914!

Hope those inspire some awesome new industrial ideas etc

Those drawings in that journal would be great for etching, I would think.
Those remind me of the poetry magazines that were around in the sixties/early seventies

Great fonts in Blast, been a while since I read those, thanks for posting. Dig the numbering graphics, think I'll rip those off too, thank you very much!

Funny how many things are still pertinent, despite his heavy-handed judging of entire nations. He always qualifies his stereotypes, at least.

I studied a little bit of Modernism, and its seems that the point was to tear everything down - whether other nations or your own. There's a big theme of existentialism and stream of thought, so he might be highlighting how blunt the thoughts of society around him are, not just what he feels. Very interesting stuff indeed :) But maybe a little OT...

This thread is great btw. Really nice to have such a huge variety of ideas to spark that next design

.....it's what Friday afternoons are for!!

I really like the racing car idea, so I did this as a first draft.  Don't know if it's any better than Arma's graphic, but it's more shiny!



I drew it in MS Word, if anyone's interested.

Hey Mark, I did it ... at the end!!!

Originally named it mad professor compressor before realising that name was not such a good idea.

Hey! Im posting graphics for Madbeans Krankasaurus and Fulltone OCD along with Beavisaudio Noisy Cricket Mark II. Im also posting modelled enclosures in Google Sketchup for Fulltone OCD and Noisy Cricket, so you can use them to make your drilling templates. Krankasaurus graphic is based on the drilling template in the project pdf.

http://speedy.sh/yktR5/CookieCruncher.pdf - thats the graphic design for Krankasaurus, I called it Cookie Cruncher
http://speedy.sh/BtPSx/Fulltone.pdf - Thats for Fulltone OCD, called Lip Driver. I found this cool graphic on google, but Im sure Im not supposed to use it for commercial use, so I will just keep it for myself :)
