  • How to make a top. Make Yourself A Cartoon Tee - Step 1
    Step 1

    Draw the cartoon with a pencil (or fabric pens) on to the tee.
    The picture of mickey I had was very small actually .I had to blow it way too big to draw it on the shirt. As I draw free hand more comfortable, so i directly drew the mickey outline on the tee with a pencil. No effort spent on tracing.

  • Step 2

    Make sure it covers most of the white space..Bigger the Better;) The picture below you can see my drawing with a pencil. Check if the proportions of the drawing are right.

  • Step 3

    Before getting started with the painting make sure that a newspaper is places in between the front and back of the t-shirt. (u could use any separator). just to avoid the back part of the t shirt catching the paint.

    For filling the body of the cartoon . lightly mix the paint and medium(use the recommended proportion or paint will spread through the knit t shirt). If we don't mix the paints with water then after the paint dries the paint will be kinda stiff!!

  • Step 5

    After filling all the parts. For the outline use undiluted paint.

    An additional tip where shaded areas are required: You see the shading effect near mickeys face. You can achieve that by using very little color and more water in the brush and allow the paint to spread through the fabric a little.
