INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Choose a sweatshirt you would like to work on. (I chose a soft blue colored sweatshirt to go nicely with the warm paint colors that I used for the flower.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Stretch the sweatshirt over a shirt form or a board slightly larger than the shirt. Tape down the sleeves to keep out of the way; tape down the neck and bottom of the shirt, if needed, to keep the shirt flat for painting.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Using masking tape, drag across the sweatshirt surface to pick up any loose lint or hair. Mask off the area on the shirt where you want to place the flower.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Load a 3/4" flat brush with Dark Rose.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Using the edge of the brush and starting the center of the flower, paint curved shapes onto the shirt. Continue to paint on the curved shapes as you build up the flower shape.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Leave spaces where the sweatshirt shows through until you get the overall shape of flower you like.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Paint Bright Coral into the empty areas of the flower.
    Step 6 Example
  8. No need to wash the brush before the next step; just wipe off the extra paint onto a paper towel.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Paint Peaches & Cream onto some of the Bright Coral areas for highlights.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Using a clean brush, paint the general shape of leaves using Olive Green and then filling with Avocado Green.
    Step 9 Example
  11. For added highlight in the leaves, paint some areas with Green Apple.
    Step 10 Example
  12. Add a Writer Tip to a bottle of Santa Red.
    Step 11 Example
  13. Loosely outline the shape of flower and leaves with Santa Red and the Writer Tip. Also, outline some areas inside the flower shape.
    Step 12 Example
  14. Use same Writer Tip and Santa Red to draw a rectangle shape and write in "BLOOM" or any other word to personalize.
    Step 13 Example
  15. Let dry completely before removing from the board.
    Step 14 Example
  16. This is an easy and fun idea for a new or upcycled sweatshirt.
    Step 15 Example
