Lookie what you can do!!
I've seen these for years, but never had the urge to try it until this past week. I did a little research and found two great tutorials that I kinda combined.
Tute #2 - This one appears to be down today.
A few notes
- I used the method of ironing freezer paper to the inside of the front of the shirt, to keep my paint from bleeding through to the back of the shirt.
- This was a 100% cotton shirt from Goodwill. Han and I tried making two more of these today with what I though were 100% cotton and there was some bleeding around the edges of the stencil. So basically, I ruined two t-shirts. Lesson learned is to make sure you are using 100% cotton.
- I just used the little Folk Art acrylic paints mixed with GOLDEN - GAC 900 textile medium. There are cheaper textile mediums around, but my Michaels didn't have any. The GOLDEN is with the artists paints and it's about $15 a bottle. The bottle is kinda big and so it'll go a long way. Plus, you can use a 40% off coupon for it.
