The cutest, most chaotic shirt ever!
I'v wanted to do something with this shirt for awhile now but had no ideas until I looked at my paints!!!!! Boom!! I came up with this. Hope ya like it! The time is how long it took over all including dry time (its an estimate so don't be mad if its wrong!)

    Gather your paints (these are just ones I found on google).

  • How to paint a t-shirt. Splatter Shirt - Step 3
    Step 3

    Find your cardboard and newspaper (this depends on where you're painting. The First time, I laid out some news paper and set the shirt on that, but I got some paint on the carpet [eek!!] so the second time, I hung it in the shower. It worked great in the shower!) Now put the cardboard in the shirt so that way if the paint bleeds, it wont make the shirt stick together but, with this shirt, it might not matter!!!

    Step 4

    Use your brush(es) and splatter!!!! I switched between brushes and just the bottle. I put the paint on the cover of a notebook I found that was plastic and now my notebook looks cool!!!! Two projects in one!!!

    Step 5

    You can let it dry on its own, or, if you're impatient, you can try a blow dryer but not to high!!!! I only used it on the back when it was almost dry.

  • Step 6

    After dry, repeat on the back and let that dry too!!

  • Step 7

    DONE!!!!!! Now you've got an awesome shirt to wear and be different from the American Eagle around you!!!! lol You can also try it on other things and see how it works!!! If you do, let me see!!!
