This week we were assigned to make a multilayer sticker. At first I was a bit confused, not really understanding on how to make a sticker multilayered. However, some helpful people at the FabLab made it so much more understandable. I knew for this project that I wanted to make a sticker for my computer, so I started to Google some ideas. After a few mins of searching, I really liked the idea of using Snoopy. I came across an image of Snoopy and Woodstock in a cape. To adjust the picture, I decided to add a superhero outfit to Snoopy and his sidekick. In a way, it sort of resembles Superman and Batman. I also got rid of Snoopy’s tail from the original image to make the image more clean.
While making this sticker, I ran into a few problems. When I first printed the image, it was way too small making it extremely hard to actually layer the stickers together. On my second try, I made it slightly bigger, due to the limitation of vinyl located in the scrap basket. With the assistance of the people working at the FabLab, I ended up making holes on the while vinyl for Snoopy’s face rather than layering another layer of black vinyl on top of the white vinyl.
For me, the actual hard part with this project was actually layering the stickers since I don’t have the steadiest hand. Thankfully, the transfer tape made a huge difference in helping me!
Overall, I’m very happy with the result of my sticker. If I were to redo this project, I would make the sticker slightly larger to make it easier to layer the smaller pieces of the sticker on top of each other. The black border around Snoopy’s face isn’t as smooth as I want it to be and that is something that could be improved on.
