Paper Press T-Shirt Technique

Thursday, January 31, 2013
Looking for a look for Valentine's day?  Or any day for that matter!  Here's a cute look from Pattiewack showing you how to use Scribbles Dimensional Fabric Paint or "Puffy Paint" as a lot of you may affectionately refer to it as. You don't have to have drawing skills to do this project, just know a little cursive writing.  Let's show you how to make it!
What you need:
Scribbles 3D Fabric Paint in Glittering Silver, Pink Surprise and Wild Raspberry
– Pink T-shirt
– Freezer paper
– Chalk pencil (optional)

Before you begin:  You'll want to wash your tee (without fabric softener) and dry. Now place a sheet of freezer paper inside the layers of the shirt to keep paint from seeping through to the back of shirt.
Write the word “Lovely” with Wild Raspberry on the front of your shirt.  If you are unsure of your freehand writing skills, draw the word on using a chalk pencil, so it will give you a guide to go by.
Go over the word again using Glittering Silver leaving a little space between the colors.
Trace again with Pink Surprise.
Carefully lay paper side of another piece of freezer paper over the wet paint.

Lightly press paper into the paint with your fingertips, being careful not to flatten completely.
  Carefully peel off freezer paper from the shirt and throw away. Let dry.
This is a really quick project to make. For that reason, it was a design chosen to appear in store displays.  This is our design studio setup during the process of mass production.  We actually did 36 of this one shirt. Cool, huh?  It's all in a day's work!
