How to Paint a Graffiti T-Shirt


Updated August 31, 2012
(1 Votes)


Bust out a paint roller for this project and be sure to choose some bright, crazy colors. Learn how to paint a Graffiti T-Shirt from Savannah Starr using stencils. Spell out your favorite words, display a meaningful image or design something completely one of a kind.

Grab a plain white t-shirt from your drawer or buy one at your local discount store. Begin your project by cutting off the sleeves and neckline. Stick some freezer paper inside the shirt to ensure that the paint does not bleed through. Cover a small roller in paint and apply it to the shirt in long strokes. Continue adding paint colors in the same way. Position stencils on the shirt and cover each one with paint. Be gentle when covering the letters - this way they won't slip or and the paint won't smear. You can outline the letters with fabric markers to give them a three-dimension feel. Let the entire shirt dry and then wear your top to the beach, pool or even a party.
