Painted Tee Shirt Tutorial
What you’ll need:
-Basic tee shirt, pre-washed
-Fabric paint (I used Tulip Soft fabric paint in ebony found at Hobby Lobby)
-Graphics printed on paper in the size that you want to have on the shirt
-Small round paint brush (I used a #2 round brush)
Here are the graphics I used…
Anchor print (I didn’t paint the rope part of it to save time):
Bonjour text:Put a piece of cardboard inside the shirt, then trace the image onto the shirt using the transfer paper. Depending of the shirt it may be hard to see the transfer lines. The lines show up better on lighter colored fabric.
Then use the brush to paint the shirt with the fabric paint. Let the paint dry for a day or two before wearing.
The “Bonjour” text was definitely faster and easier than the anchor design. You can make the image/text as basic as you feel comfortable with. Have fun with it!
