Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1/2 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include the time to completely dry the shirt after styling. Download the template for tips and tricks.
  • 2
    Place newspapers inside of shirt.
  • 3
    If using multiple colors, use masking tape to section off appropriate areas.
  • 4
    Draw a line with a pencil to mark the area you want to remain White (if applicable). Spray on color of your choice above and below this line, making sure fabric is fully saturated with chosen color. Daub off any puddles of paint with paper towel.
  • 5
    Dip fingers into water and dribble on water droplets. You will notice the paint begin to take on watermarks. Continue to dribble on water droplets until you have reached a satisfactory pattern. Remember: less is more - if the fabric becomes too wet with water, the design will not appear.
  • 6
    Carefully flip shirt over and spray entire back with color of choice. Dribble on water to entire back side. Allow shirt to dry.
  • 7
    When shirt is dry, place iron-on letters in desired position and carefully press them into place with an iron. Make sure you follow the manufacturer's instructions for the iron on letters.
  • 8
    Lay shirt flat to dry. Wait 72 hours before washing. Turn inside out when washing and do not use fabric softener.
