Fun with T-SHIRTS...

Hey Guys,
 We are now going to enter into 'Fun With T-shirt Series'...
In today's and upcoming blog post I will show you different and simple ways of converting your boring T-shirts in to something cute and fun...
So lets start with today's tutorial.

The easy and best way of pepping the T-shirt is by painting it. We can paint the T-shirts with the help of several methods (i.e. with brush or sponge or stencils or blocks and the list goes on). Today we will see the brush effect.

1) To begin with I took a not so old T-shirt of Jockey brand and ironed it well.

2) I am crazy about Aztec prints so I chose my design and drew it on a drawing sheet. You can even download designs from the net.

3) Transfer your design on a tracing paper.

4) Now with the help of a Carbon Paper trace the design onto your T-shirt. Carbon papers are available in multiple colors. I have used the white one.

5) Sandwich an old newspaper between the back and front of the Tee. This way the color wont get transferred to the other side.

6) Now start painting with your brush and fabric paints. I have used Camel company's ARTISTS' ACRYLIC COLOUR. I haven't used any medium even though the consistency is pretty thick compared to the other brand.

7) After 72 hours, iron on the reverse side.

Your T-shirt is ready to ROCK...

P.S. Sorry for the crappy pics. I lack patience when I have to shift from painting to shooting pics. 


  1. I've spend entire Friday afternoon painting on clothes with my nephew! On this t-shirts I have drawn motorcycles, cars and a Ferrari racing car. On my own clothes I have applied paint to create a floral print but I have more ideas.

    I really like this tee you have made! Great job!
