- Plain (or printed) tee shirt
- Tulip Fashion Graffiti Fabric Paint Cannon
- Tulip Fabric Spray Paint
- For this project, I selected fluorescent colors of Tulip Cannon Fabric Paint. The pink and orange are super cool for the base colors of this tee.
- Next I selected a re-positionable stencil. This stencil is cool because it is sticky on the back and works repeatedly on fabric.
- Follow the package instructions and pump up your Cannon. This is so cool because you get the effects of an aerosol spray bottle without the harm to the environment.
- Hold down the nozzle and spray on your lettering. I chose L-O-V-E.
- Next I outlined the orange lettering with pink. Then, push down partially on the nozzle and you create a spattered look.
- I like to let the base colors dry completely so that I can get crisp black graffiti. Position the stencil on the tee.
- I’m using the Tulip Fabric Spray Paint in Asphalt for my black graffiti.
- Just pump to spray the paint over the stencil. For graffiti, it’s fine to let the color go outside the stencil.
- Here’s what it look like when you pull up the stencil. If you want a darker application of the black fabric spray, just spray more color while the stencil is in place.
- Reposition and re-spray.
- Next, I grabbed my floral stencil and just placed it over the fabric (no adhesive on the back of this stencil).
- Move it around and spray, spray, spray with the black, orange and pink.
- For the final design element, I added a bird.
- Here is my graffiti design! Repeat for the back and sleeves.
- Turn your tee into a designer piece by cutting off the crew neck. Also cut the bottom edge of the sleeves and bottom hem. When you wash your tee, the edges will curl!
