|Make Your Own Hawkwind T-Shirt - part 6
Please refer to Make Your Own Hawkwind T-Shirt, Part 1 for the instructions. This page contains

web and then edited as necessary to make them suitable for T-shirt design.

the artists in those cases where I knew whom to ask. If you created any of these designs please contact
me here so that I can credit you for your excellent work!
Above and right: these 2 designs by Hawkshead, who
sends his permission for their use all the way from

competition at Christmas 2000. Grateful thanks!
|NEW - Make Your Own Hawkwind Temporary Tattoos!
Well I finally tracked down a place where you can buy Temporary Tattoo Paper for inkjet printers. In
the USA, Smiths supermarkets carry it. It's also purchasable over the internet - see below. (I've tried
this paper out and it was a bit crap, actually - the 'tattoos' are actually stickers & work better as such.)
Instructions follow the image
This image looks blurrier than it is, it was shrunk down to fit on the page. Follow the instructions below &
you will download it fully sized & unblurred

4. Ensure you have set the paper size appropriately. (The paper I found is 8.5" wide,
5. Print the image, using the graphics package to ensure that it is printed on the full
width and/or full length of the paper - the bigger the better.
6. Allow the printed image to dry completely.

Now, these people who sell the Temporary Tattoo paper also sell other specialty papers for inkjet printers.
I'm not going to attempt to produce designs or instructions for these, but you can also make the following
items if you're so minded. There is a link to the page to make an online purchase of each type of paper:
* Bumper stickers - here
* Transparent decals (those plastic thingies that adhere to the inside of your car windscreen) - here
* Fridge magnets - here
* Mouse mats - here
|If some of these look a bit blurry, it's because they are shrunk down to fit on this page. Downloading them
in the way I suggest in the instructions will give you the full size images. If in doubt, you can always edit
the images in your graphics package to sharpen them up...or change the colours, add text, etc.. You can
also do a test print first onto ordinary paper.
