Project Instructions

  • 1
    Note: Let paint dry before applying another color to same area you just finished painting.

    Insert cardboard between layers of t-shirt to prevent paint seepage.
  • 2
    Use chalk to mark the three bursts on t-shirt. Use paintbrush to paint small Glacier White circles in the areas marked. On each circle, brush outward from center creating Glacier White bursts blending into the Black t-shirt. Make some bursts bigger than others and keep sizes irregular. Brush the center areas with second coat of Glacier White and lightly blend outward disappearing into the Black. Paint Crimson Red in center of one burst and dry brush outward to blend into the black. Repeat with the remaining burst using the Royal Blue.
  • 3
    With the White Metallics dimensional paint, draw loose, slightly curved lines beginning from the center of the bursts and exploding outward (like fireworks). Make dot on ends of the bursts. Let dry.

    Use heat-setting tool to heat set crystals randomly around t-shirt for an extra sparkle.
