Ben finished the sandblasting cabinet, and he, Dan, and Claudio spent last night experimenting with it.
Ben has built a small sand blasting cabinet into one of our carts in the shop. Soon we’ll have the ability to do awesome sandblasting stuff. Here’s some pictures of the build.
HACKmemphis is a Memphis Hackathon event we have been helping with. Register now to be apart of this event. There will be software and hardware hackers on hand to work on projects, collaborate on ideas, and generally do cool stuff.
We’ll be bleaching colored cotton t-shirts, using vinyl stickers as masks to create personalized t-shirts:
Attendees: 5-8(10-16) with 2 classes, an hour each or so
There should be plenty of table space to accommodate that many people if desired.
When: Sunday August 18th Noon
Supplies on hand:
Small t-shirts(kid sizes included): 20-35
Medium T-shirts: 36
Large T-shirts: 14 dark (7 light)
XLarge T-shirts: 4
Vinegar (Bleach neutralizing solution)
Attendees will need to bring:
Other T-shirt sizes if desired. We only have a limited amount of L/XL shirts on hand.
Work safe clothing (we’ll be working with a bleach solution)
Claudio will want to have the artwork (one or two pieces) the week before the class. Claudio will cut the artwork that Friday to have time to address any issues prior to the class on Sunday. On Sunday we’ll peel the stickers, place on the shirts and spray with a bleach solution. The shirt will then sit for 5-10 minutes depending on desired finish. We’ll then rinse the shirt in some water and finally in a vinegar solution to help neutralize the bleaching process. We’ll then hang the t-shirts to dry.
