hi im mandiCHU:]
i live my comfortable life in t-shirts too!..
most of the time im exploring the world in my tees:]
ive always found them more comfortable then a blouse.
growing up as a lil native american kidd[navajo to be exact] ive always had a deep love for grafic shirts!
but getting them is ALWAYS a PAIN @,@
living on a navajo reservation the closest somewhat of a mall is about 2-3 hours away & the closest namebrand stores are 4-5 hours away!
so i managed to always come up with my own homemade shizzzz!!!
my personal style has always been quite unique:]
i always get questions on where i buy them and after telling them i make my own stuff. the next question is how do i make them.
ive ALWAYS <3 how they came out decided i had to share!!!!
so here you guys go:]
gather all your materials!...
-x acto knife
-small paint brush
-decal of your choice
decide on what you want on your shirt!..
for me i just wanted hello kitty in her classy shades.
i simply googled "hello kitty decals" and BOOM i got what i was lookin for:]
when printing your decal its best to choose a simple/easy one to do!
black&whites make it even more simple.
this is the TRIIIICKY part!..
cut out your decal using an x-acto knife. while doing this keep in mind were stenciling it @,@ so try your best not to cut everything out or else all your hard work is nothing!
about every inch&half leave a gap thingy to stayy attached [hard to explain!!!!!] like in the picture<--
after the stenciling...place your decal on the shirt!..
and tape it down using masking tape.
[masking tape/painters tape wont give you that aftermath sticky-NESS]
for me i like things a bit uneven:]
i think it looks alot better.
gently paint your decal!..
for me i find it way easyer to use a toothpick to help keep my decal down!
it makes the paint job look PRO!!
add on a design!..
for me i love artwork to cover my shirts completly:]
so i just messed around with tape and made a border.
[after your decal is finished drying be very gentle while peeling]
then just fill in your border design
cover your design with paint!..
for the rest of my design i went with my usual design leopard<3
i love how it looks!!!!!
this is exactly how i make my plain leopard shirts too! i just tear random strips of tape and BOOOOOM you got leoparddddddd:]]]]]
i like to blend my design in with my decal:] makes it all come together.
after its done drying peel the tape off...
