Brooklyn, New Yo...
If you get tired of wearing the same old thing like me, update any old t-shirt, tank, sweater, etc. this way. I used a can of non-toxic fabric spray paint, but the 2.5 oz. bottle was not enough for an all over stripe for this tank. Supposedly one bottle is enough for 4 t-shirts. I think if I did this color on all white, I wouldn’t have had to use so much paint, but still not really enough for 4 t-shirts… may be just one, if done right! Also, there is a “primer” white that you can use before the color spray, if you want a lighter color on darker fabric, which I should have used.
Oh well, I still like the outcome ~ this is just the beginning of many striped and stenciled experiments, and I think there are better paints to use than the one I used, so I’d love your comments and suggestions!
