T-shirt for the boyfriend. I made a stencil from a vector image and sponge painted it on with fabric paint. The t-shirt itself was bought, not made.

Material Notes

cotton t-shirt, black fabric paint, sponge brush, homemade stencil





the website that was selling these t-shirts for way too much money…

    I printed the image on computer paper (made it as large as I could to fit the page) then glued it to a piece of poster board. Once the glue had dried I cut out the image with an exacto knife. For the pieces of his face that are just “floating” in the middle and I had to leave them attached to the outside edge of the stencil with a little “bridge”, sponge paint everywhere, then pull of the stencil and sponge paint the area that wasn’t painted due to the bridge. Hope that makes sense!

    I would love to know …how did you make the stencil? It looks perfect.
