There are some good things to see/read on both of these sites...I saved both to my "favorites"...has anyone tried the printing on fabrics technique explained on the Cynthia Howe site? How about you, Denis...is this similar to the technique you use? If I ever decide to invest in another printer (I have had two that quite accepting new ink cartridges after about a year's worth of use...so I am feeling a bit "bitter" towards home printers right now!)...
Also, I have the book by Timothy Alberts regarding shoes...it is a great book full of useful ideas..he spends about half the book explaining how to cast or carve a "foot and ankle" to use for shaping the shoes...I think it would be easier to use the lower part of Gene's leg, cut off, and add some hardening clay to the toe area for a different shape, if desired...I haven't tried using his techniques yet, but I love all the photos!
