    I'm working with many icons on illustrator and they are made in different ways. How can I transform all of them into a stroke/ line icon? I've been searching in many forums, but I can't find a way to...

  • mounting for my wall

    Ok so my better half wants me to put my skills to use for creating some creative images of the brats for our living room wall. Im creating the photos with some very different sizes, some long, some tall.

    Now, iv never mounted anything to hang like that. So im looking for some pointers. Has anyone done this?

    Do you know of a diy site that will show some tips?

        if you use an acrylic base paint I your okay if you get some vinyl decals made. proper mounting would require premask, you also use soapy water in a spray bottle to be able to squeegee all the air bubbles out.

        If decals aren't an option, have you though about using gel medium, the stuff acrylic painters use, we use to use it to mount with on some projects, but you can also do some need xerox copying projects with it. Also if you get a matte finish verstion you can go over the pics with no problems. any effort to remove them will require scraping and repainting later though.

          gel medium is also fairly cheap if I remember right

            Dro are you telling him to stick printed vinyl stickers of his 'brats' on the wall?

            If these are photo prints, most art stores sell framing kits (the common term is Nielsen frames but others make them). You just by the height rails and the width rails and screw them together, snap in the hanging hardware, put a nail in the wall and voila. How hard is that?
            Well, you might have to ask them to cut you a piece of non-glare acrylic to fit your dimensions...Forgot that part.
