Design your own tshirt



There is nothing more creative than painting your favorite t-shirt by hand. No! You do not need to be a professional painter to create fun and creative designs. There are different techniques to paint a T-shirt yourself, but it works without a printer and computer programs. The technique used in the picture above is simple hand-painting, just as you write or paint on paper. This is possible if you buy textile paint. If you can not paint so well, you can also use a tshirt template. With various stencils that you print out of the Internet, you can design your T-shirt with unique and funny motives. An example and foolproof DIY instructions you can look here:

The choice of T-shirt sounds very easy – a simple white T-shirt. But that’s not the case with the T Shirt painting. It is important that the cotton fabric is free of finish. Also silk or linen can be painted. If you can not find finish-free items, then you should wash the shirt before painting (without fabric softener!).

Step 1: Press the selected template and cut it out

Step 2: Iron stencil on the shirt using baking paper

You may be wondering if there is any other method than ironing. The answer is yes! Place the template under the fabric to be painted and you can see the contours through the fabric. In this way you can repaint the contours. A tip: Be sure to put a cardboard under the coloring page, so that the colors can not be pressed on the back of the T-shirt when painting.

Step 3: Then paint the motifs with the desired textile color

When buying the textile paint, pay attention to non-toxic (water-based) and odorless colors. Many of you like working with children a lot, but we do not recommend painting for children with paint and brushes, but with pencils. The color of the fabric we have chosen for this project looks great as it gives a special effect. This effect we have done with glitter colors.

Step 4: Remove the foil
