This informative little art tutorial teaches you how to paint your own design on a t-shirt. What you will need for this is your design itself which you wish to have on the garment, a Marabu Textil+ starter kit which comes with 6 textile paints and a brush, some water, masking tape, Marabu metallic outliner pens, crocodile clips,pencil, tracing paper and a sheet of cardboard wrapped in cling film to place inside your t-shirt whilst you work on it.
To begin with you will have to use your tracing paper to trace out your design using your pencil, for the purposes of this video the instructor has used a celtic design which has an almost stained glass feel to it. Next is the pre-prepared t-shirt held inplace with the crocodile clips and stuffed with cardboard which the design is then laid graphite side down to transfer the image to the textile.
The fun part comes next where nice thick applications of the Textil+ paint are applied to the fabric which is then complimented by the metallic outliner pens. Be experimental and apply the paint accordingly to deliver your final design tailored to your specification. Most importantly, have fun!
