  1. Pre-wash and dry shirt.
  2. Insert plastic covered board into shirt. Stretch fabric tight and tape or pin in place.
  3. Trace and transfer pattern*.
  4. Basecoat bat with Lavender. Shade with Dioxazine Purple. When almost dry, add eyes, mouth and feet with white and black.
  5. Basecoat sign with Hauser Light Green. When almost dry, add lettering with Cadmium Yellow and pumpkin with Cadmium Orange.
  6. Paint pumpkin stem True Green. Let dry.
  7. Use fabric pen or liner and Lamp Black to outline all. Let dry.
  8. Cover areas of bat and sign you do not wish to spatter. (You may want to cut patterns from paper to cover them completely.) Use old toothbrush to spatter* white areas of shirt with Lavender and Hauser Light Green. Let dry.
  9. Thread ribbon through buttons. Tie ribbon in bow and glue or pin bow ends and buttons onto shirt.

Transferring a Pattern
Lay tracing paper over pattern and draw the basic lines. Lay this tracing on the surface to be painted. Slip transfer paper between the tracing and the surface and secure. Trace with a pencil or stylus to transfer the design.

Spatter: Thin paint to consistency of heavy cream. Dip an old toothbrush in color. Drag thumbnail through bristles to flick paint onto surface. A fan brush with stiff bristles also works well.
