I got a plain blue shirt from the crafts store, and used the element symbol to make my own ( the element shirt I bought at PAc Sun cost me 22.50, wow.

Thanks! I thought I'd try and make my own, since the real ones are a little bit  expensive.

Did you freehand that onto your shirt? I'm making a Roxy one, and I was planning on either spray painting or painting it with acrylics, but either way I would use a stencil. How did you get yours so perfect looking?

Yup, I free-handed it.... Um I'm pretty good at drawing, so that probably helped. I just took my time, and made sure that it was all even.   Good~ Luck With your shirt.

If you want to make one like the ones they sell in stores. The classic one:



Its pretty easy. Just make a stencil of a square, paint it red, let it dry.
Then make the actuall symbol stencil and paint it white over the red square. If you see that its still kind of reddish.. keep layering the white over top till its white.  I did it for my bro and myself, you can't even tell the difference between the actual element shirt (39.99$) and the "stenciled" element shirt (5$).

Do you skateboard by the way? Just curious. Wanted to know if there where any fellow female skateboarding craftsters on here.

I used the same pic of the element sign that you posted. It was a tag on my shirt  Smiley
 But instead of doing a stencil ( i lack the certain materials ) I decided to use my hands, and some fabric paint, lol.   I do skateboard, but not that I'm good or anything.

Shh... Don't tell... LOL
   I'm pretty sure nothing will happen, as long as they're not being sold... that's my theory at least. Wink

Of course they are copywrited. Element probably rakes in millions and millions of dollars a year thanks to the new skateboarding trend and also thanks to bam margera's new found popularity. As long as your not selling these stencilled goods. I don't really think the company minds. Most of my skate gear comes with stencils that are pre-cut and everything. It's like they encourage it. Like I just bougt a pair of circa shoes and on the shoe box the symbols are cut out and in the box are instructions on how to stencil. If you have a west-49 in your town, sometimes they keep stencils under the counter and give them to you when you make purchases. Stenciling is really common with skateboarders, most people use these stencils to stencil their grip tape or skateparks. So if you don't sell your stuff, your clear.
