i wanted to make a few more pucks like the Invaders puck that i keep at my desk:
no biggie, right?
this time around though, i wanted to do my own design. so i choose to attempt the simplest of Invaders logos... the shoulder patch:
i taped off the face of the puck with masking tape. i printed, to scale, colorless "wire" design. i then taped that on top of the first piece of masking tape. the puck was now face, masking tape, paper, masking tape. i knew you could see thru the top layer of tape, and cut thru all three layers. see for yourself:
no pics of the spray painting process, i didn't want to "yellow" up my camera phone (i'm a bit of a mess).
the paint stayed sticky, and didn't really jive with the smoothness of the puck like it did the first time around. so i wrapped it up in this nice note, and sent it to a lucky friend! is it you??? you'll know by tuesday-ish
and THAT'S a DIY fail! was fun to do though, and totally looking forward to the next one... because... you know what happens soon after a good DIY fail:
