Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include time it will take for fabric paint to dry.
  • 2
    Download and print project template. Use chalk and template to draw large heart on shirt. Draw randomly sized small hearts inside large heart, stopping about an inch from the bottom. When you get to that location, fill in with Platinum to simulate a “hinged opening” with hearts floating out of it. If needed, refer to photo for assistance.
  • 3
    Place a sheet of freezer paper inside the shirt to keep paint from seeping through to the back of t-shirt.
  • 4
    Pour puddle of Platinum paint on paper plate. Staying inside chalk lines, paint hearts Platinum.
  • 5
    Pour puddle of Ebony paint on paper plate. Paint a shadow on one side of each heart. Let dry. Remove freezer paper.
  • 6
    Sprinkle crystals in between each of the painted hearts. Place crystals in color waves starting with Red and ending with Yellow. Refer to photo or create a pattern you desire.
  • 7
    Place pressing cloth over crystals, and iron with cotton setting for 5 seconds. Repeat until all of the crystals have been heat-set onto t-shirt.
  • 8
    Brush off excess chalk with clean toothbrush to complete.
