New Node t-shirt, made at the Node!


I made a 50/50 mix of bleach and water, and put it into a spray bottle.

I used Inkscape to convert the .svg of the node logo into a .dxf file by simply opening the svg and saving it as .dxf which imports easily into the LaserCut5.3 software.

I cut the Node logo out of hardboard on our laser cutter, and a foam rectangle from the padding from the box that the laser was delivered in.

 

After slipping the foam inside the shirt to prevent bleach from seeping through to the back, I laid the stencil onto the shirt, and sprayed it with the bleach mixture.

After a few seconds, I washed it off, and this is the result!
