Come into the Deadpool: The Water’s Fine for Amazing Fan Art you can Easily Do Yourself

Deadpool fever is sweeping the nation, delighting and repelling audiences young and old alike, with its slick stylistic sensibility and crude anti-hero antics. Everywhere normal citizens feel inspired to join the Deadpool movement, responding to its highly effective head-scratching guerilla marketing campaign, and hoping to copy its artful and original winning formula of super-snark and unsentimental heart.

From cut vinyl t-shirt designs, to dye-sublimated tiles and mousepads, check out these cool applications you can also do very easily with USCutter equipment and materials.

1.)   Deadpool Logo T-Shirt

We used a Titan II, 60 g’s of pressure, and speed of 36 mm/s, to cut the red bottom layer from Color Theory Thin Foil.

The eye “sockets” are Chemica 3D-Fashion Flex Carbon texture, and the eye “balls” are Color Theory White Glitter (both materials cut at 90 g’s of pressure). The 3D and Foil are cold peel products.

Layer different effects, including Carbon 3D, Glitter, and Thin Metallic Foil.

We used a pressing temperature of 168 degrees Celsius for 30 seconds to apply each layer, with the last layer of Glitter being a hot peel. The thin foil held up very well, with the final peel adding a distressed look to it which seemed to work well with the aesthetic of the movie.
