My son learned at school how to use fabric dye. His enthusiasm for painting on fabric was so catchy that we decided to make t-shirts. It is very easy:
1) get a t-shirt (plain, better white or any light colour)
2) draw a life-size design on a page of paper (my son’s design was inspired by one of the Maleviche’s paintings poster of which just happened to hung in the room we were doing the painting). Cut out the parts on the paper that need to be painted in.
3) put a cardboard between the front and back of the t-shirt to prevent the dye leaking though both layers.
4) put the design (stencil) on the t-skirt and secure with pins or special temporary glue.
5) colour in the stencil.
6) take of the stencil, add some finishing touches
7) leave the paint to dry
8) when the paint is completely dry, iron on the highest setting using a piece of cloth – that will make the dye waterproof, not shedding colour when being washed.
Wear and enjoy!
