INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES: Let dry completely between painting steps. Pre-wash the cotton t-shirt with no softeners.

  1. Find a piece of cardboard to fit inside the t-shirt. Cut to size. Use wax or freezer paper to cover most or all of the cardboard. Use painter's tape to hold in place.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Stretch the shirt over the cardboard with the wax or freezer paper being right under where the paint will go.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use the Americana Brim & Crown Stencil with the top hat, holding in place or securing in place with painter's tape. Use the #6 flat brush to mix (1) part Bright Avocado with (1) part Yellow Green. Load a cosmetic sponge with the mix and use to fill in the hat completely. Wash stencil.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use the Americana Mustaches Stencil under the hat. (Besides using painter's tape to hold the stencil in place, you can also use it to block off the other mustaches.) Load a new cosmetic sponge with Cadmium Orange to pounce on the mustache of choice. Wash stencil.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Use the #6 flat brush and Bright Avocado to paint the band around the hat. Rinse brush. Use the #1 liner brush and Bright Avocado to paint the detail on the top of the hat. Rinse brush.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Use a pen or pencil with white transfer paper to transfer all the word patterns onto the shirt under the hat and mustache. Use the #1 liner brush and Ultra White to paint on the word "Everyone" and outline the small shamrock in the letter "o". Rinse brush.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Use the same #1 liner brush and True Green to fill in the shamrock inside the "O". Rinse brush.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Use the #1 liner brush and Ultra White to basecoat the word "IS" and the decorative swirl above and below it. Rinse brush.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Use the #1 round brush to mix (1) part Bright Avocado with (3) parts True Green. Use the mix with the #1 round brush to fill in the entire word "IRISH". Rinse brush.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Use the #1 liner brush and Ultra White to paint on the word "on". Rinse brush.
    Step 9 Example
  11. Use the #1 round brush and Ultra White to basecoat the words "St. Paddy's Day". Rinse brush. Use the same brush and Yellow Green to fill in the same words "St. Paddy's Day". Rinse brush.
    Step 10 Example
  12. Use the 1/4" pouncer and Bright Avocado to make random polka dots on the words "St. Paddy's Day". Wash pouncer.
    Step 11 Example
  13. Use the same 1/4" pouncer and Yellow Green to make a period after "st." and for the apostrophe between the "y" and "s". Wash pouncer. Finish the apostrophe with the #1 liner brush and Yellow Green. Rinse brush.
    Step 12 Example
  14. Remove cardboard. Follow the SoSoft Fabric paint label for dry and wash times.
