does anyone know of a good online retailer who sells affordable pyramid studs and spikes? i just thrifted a very new looking denim vest and want to make it look super nice when i stencil it up! usually i just sew soda pop-tops and the occasional computer keyboard keys on things but this time i'd like something a bit nicer.

I posted pics of my jacket (and another that I had made for a friend.)   I got bored an updated mine again.  I have taken the Bauhaus T-Shirt  that was on the back off, and started a Peace/Anarchy sign, originally meant to be a Market Anarchy sign, but it is off center so I need repaint it and will probably do something else. See behind the cut)
I also added a skull and crossbones sleeve and a bat logo. (trying to decide if I want to turn this into a Specimen or a Batmobile logo, any suggestions?)Front

I’m currently compiling a photo feature for the UK’s Alt-Fashion magazine (the title is
probably quite self-explanatory, but see www.altfashion.co.uk for more details) which is
set to include a spread of heavily customised, highly unique jackets along with notes from
their owners / creators on their construction and the stories they could tell.

If you sport a badge-encrusted, saftey-pin secured leather that has survived since the 70s,
favour patched up and painted DIY denims, or own some even more original item of
hand-finished outerwear I would love to hear from you! To get involved please send a
clear photo to bubblegumslutzine@gmail.com and I’ll get back to you with some further
info and a quick Q & A!

Left to my own devices while my girlfriend is on the road, I have been rebuild/decorating my leather jacket in between homework and tesla coil design. THis jacket appeared in an earlier incarnation on this board, but has seen many changes since. It is a work in progress, but currently on hiatius untill I figure out what the fuck I have done with my paint pen.  Not having anyone handty to take pictures, my punching bag has agreed to model in them...

Little known fact...some punks can't paint. Not to save their lives...

11/8/06 02:58 am - bonamoz - go easy on me, it's my first post here...!

I had a really neat jacket for years and years...I only just started studding it, then it was stolen. So, I recently bought a new one and I am starting over. The leather on my old one was crappy (like everything from Wilson's), but soft - it was WELL worn it. The only way I could find to do it was to rip the liner open and sew it back together when I was done, so the prongs wouldn't catch on my hair, clothes, etc. I've talked to a few people and they had all stuck the prongs right through the liner, creating the mess I didn't want to deal with.

So, looking for tips online tonight (due to a lack of people I know who have put studs on their coats), I found this tool. Now, I have the kind with the wheely-thing that makes the round holes (like a paper hole puncher - and it is a pain in the arse to work with, for me anyway... I was thinking that the 'stud setting tool' that I found earlier might work better. A customer review on the website that has the thing said that the blades bent when they were using it. My jacket is newer made of tough leather, so I am afraid that if I get this thing it might not work. I don't want to use a razorblade, either, because the slits end up too big and I kind of cut my finger wide open last time I tried to do that... :-P

So, in short...anyone have any tips? Because there is a serious lack of them out there. Not just in a punk sence, either. I'm talking general cowboy stuff as well. Weird.
