Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include time it will take for fabric paint to dry.
  • 2
    Insert a Fashion Form or cardboard piece inside of t-shirt for a stable painting surface and to prevent paint from seeping through to back side.
  • 3
    Place t-shirt on a flat surface.
  • 4
    Squeeze out each color onto whatever you are using as a palette.
  • 5
    Dip paint brush into Sunshine Yellow paint. Brush paint onto t-shirt where you would like the placement of first heart. Do not give a full coverage. You want to see the brush strokes.
  • 6
    With the exception of Black, repeat step 5 for each color -- Azalea, Neon Tropical Green and Turquoise. For larger hearts paint a larger space. Alternate direction of brush strokes for each color application. Let dry.
  • 7
    Draw hearts freehand over paint swatches with Slick Black.
