Wash and dry shirt without fabric softeners before painting. Insert shirt board or covered cardboard to prevent paint bleeding through shirt. Secure with masking tape or T-pins. Draw or trace heart design onto tracing paper. Flip over pencil-traced design and outline with transfer pen. Position design and transfer pen-side down onto fabric with iron using low-heat setting. Carefully lift paper to reveal design.

1. If painting on dark fabric, fill in entire design with Ultra White. Allow to dry about 20 minutes before applying colors. If light fabric is used, undercoating won't be necessary.
2. Using #12 shader brush, paint heart Christmas Red; leaves, Hauser Light Green; and banner, Ultra White.
3. Outline, using liner brush, leaves with Hauser Dark Green and remaining elements with Lamp Black. Add the word LOVE to banner with Lamp Black Let dry.
