Close-up of one squid (he does have some green shading on him, but the it's hard to see as the colour of the paint closely matches the shirt):
It's funny, I thought that a squid would be just a weird, quirky thing to have on a shirt. But apparently I'm not the only one that thinks that someone in Marketing screwed up when they left out the squid. Enough kitties and monkeys and bears on shirts, bring on the strange submarine creatures!
I paint my tees using Setacolor Opaque fabric paint, made by Pebeo (found in the Craft section of my local art store.) They're actually silkscreen paints. They come in transparent, opaque, metallic, fluorescent and even silk paints. Pebeo also makes Setaskrib fabric markers, which are transparent inks. Both are iron fixable. I didn't use an embroidery hoop or anything...just laid the shirt out on my drafting table, had a pencil drawing ready to copy, drew a basic chalk shape , and painted it on. It is probably more time-consuming and requires stronger drawing skills than other methods, but here's why I like fabric paint-- primarily because it washes GREAT (as long as it's heat-set you can't pick this stuff off no matter how hard you try), second, you can get more detail than with a stencil, third, less equipment than silk screening, and fourth, if you can paint, you can blend colours and shade really nicely (but I didn't do that here.) It's just more flexible. A good way to try T-shirt painting is to get opaque white paint and a black paint/black marker and make a white design on a black shirt--you can black out your mistakes and they're hardly noticeable.
And thanks for the positive feedback! This is such a great site, I've learned so much from people here already!
