Personalise a T-shirt with a portrait

For this workshop you will need:

  • White T-shirt
  • One bottle of Setacolor Light Fabrics Florescent Orange
  • One bottle of Setacolor Suede Effect Royal Blue
  • One bottle of Setacolor Light Fabrics Lemon Yellow
  • One bottle of Setacolor Opale Black Shimmer
  • Fine or medium sized paint brush
  • Sheet of plastic or cardboard
  • Paper and a marker

Draw the portrait (or self-portrait) on a sheet of paper

Place a sheet of plastic or cardboard inside the T-shirt to prevent paint from staining the back and slide the picture between the piece of plastic or cardboard and the T-shirt

Using the paint brush, trace the design to the T-shirt, use one colour at a time, be sure to wait at least 15 minutes between each colour.

Once complete, allow to dry for at least 2 hours, then iron the shirt inside out (or place a cloth over the design) for 5 minutes to permanently fix the paint.
