Re-post : Painted T-shirt Tutorial

This post was originally posted on Making Lemonade by Megan. I hope you like it!
Today I’m going to show you how to make your own custom painted tee shirt! It’s super quick and easy, and at max it will only cost you about 5$ including the tee shirt if you don’t have an old one on hand! You’ll simply need the color of acrylic paint you want, Decoart’s fabric painting medium, water, a marker, a tee shirt, and cardboard.
{here’s what the fabric painting medium looks like. You can find it in any craft store for about a buck. You just follow the instructions which are mixing certain parts water, medium, and paint.}

First get your tee shirt and lay it out flat. Put your cardboard in the middle so the paint doesn’t bleed through.
Get a washable marker and draw out what design you’d like. I choose to do a modern lace type design.

Mix your paint up and paint in your lines. It’s okay to paint on the lines. It may take a double coat.

After this I used a little silver to make it shimmer in some places. You can’t really tell in the picture though :( Now just let it dry like it says on the bottle and wash it like normal! Now you have your own custom shirt design!

The coolest thing about it though is that you can paint whatever you want! I will be doing another one soon with another design or picture, so let me know if there is anything you'd like to see on a tee! {hee hee... that rhymes!}

Thanks for reading! I hope you guys like the tutorial!
