So one day I was browsing around, Polyvore.com , and I saw this shirt, And It cost $50, I love it so much I decided to make it and share my technique, with you. My version caused around $10 *Note* This has nothing to do with twilight fanaticism...lol Nothing against you, I just really like True Blood a lot more. Hope to see a lot of responses and versions. Have a lovely day! ^__^
First, choose a font that you really like. If you want the font that I have on my shirt, you can downloaded here.
By clicking of the file Superstar_M54.ttf.
Open a document on Microsoft Word, change your page from "Portrait" to "Landscape" and write your message. For example: "Fang are Fantastic" on font 200. this might make you print it all on several pages.
Get your cutting mat, Xacto knife and letter you have already printed, on your 80 lb paper.
Start cutting the letter carefully.
<<< It would start looking something like this.
Take your T-shit, and inset it on the cutting mat, make sure its straight with no bumps. You should work on no clutter zone :)
After you have cutter all the letters, put the on the place of desire. Tape them down secure in place.
Now get you Tulip® Slick, Fabric Paint. You can do this with other times of paint, like acrylic paint, shirt ink. This one I got @ Walmart for $3.95, and I really love the results.
Start filling up the letters one by one, careful not to squeeze so hard, and hold down the papers, to avoid the paint bleeding to the other side. I filled up the outline cause its easier.
After you have them all outline, start carefully filling them, the less paint you use less "cakeky" is going to look.
Let it dry over night. The paint dries really fast.
If you do wanted exactly like on the picture,all you have to do is take your fabric scissors and start cutting it this way.
When is cut, stretch the fabric a little, to you desire, this will take off the ruff edges look.
