- Use a clothes iron to remove the wrinkles of your shirt, if there’s any.
- Put something inside the shirt, like a newspaper or cardboard, because you don’t want the paint to ink the backside.
- Apply the tape on the shirt and ensure that’s it’s secure.
- Paint the areas with no tape on.
- Once you’re done, just wait for the shirt to dry (preferably overnight).
- Repeat the process in other parts of the shirt. Be careful with the sleeves though, because it can be tricky.
WHERE TO BUY FABRIC PAINT?
I don’t know where to buy one in the Philippines. Normally, it should be available at National Book Store. I got mine in this really big art store here in Singapore.
