  • How to paint a t-shirt. Total Recall T Shirt - Step 1
    Step 1

    Ok so you need to buy a plain white tee/ or light colour.

    Some t shirt transfer paper (If you live in the UK you can buy it from WH Smiths, Ryman, Large Tesco stores and most stationers. eBay also sell lots, but not sure how the quality would be!)

    You need an iron (steam function disabled!)

    An Ironing board! (Very important as I didn't use one and managed to burn my wooden table and transfer varnish to the back of this shirt! oops!)

    A printer

    A computer

    A cool image

    Ok this is really simple. I learnt how to do this when I was 12 with good rsults. If i could do it then, then you can do it now! Hooray.

    Right you need to find the image you want.

    I choose Taylor Stout's Total Recall art. WWW.TSTOUT.COM

    You then need to open your image in paint.

    Step 4

    Click Open- select your saved image.

    Press ctl+a to select the image.

    Click image tab and then select 'flip rotate'

    You want to flip horizontal.

    Now if all went to plan you should have a mirror image.

    Step 5

    Ok so now I suggest doing a test print. It will mean you can gage the size, the colours, where it will sit on the tee and make any last minute changes before printing it out onto your expensive paper.

    Are you happy?

    Good!

    Now is the time to print the image onto the photo transfer paper.

  • Step 7

    Cut and trim the paper where there is white marks left.

    (If your image doesn't fill the whole of the transfer paper, you will want to trim a small border round it, or you will be left with an odd shiny box with a tiny image.)

  • Step 8

    Ok lay the transfer where you want it on the tee.

    Set your iron to highest setting (double check manufacturer's instructions!) and iron image onto the t-shirt.

    Wait till transfer has cooled and peel carefully and slowly.
