I made this shirt for the Swell Swap. I used 4 squares of plain colored fabric and hand-painted on the Marilyn Monroe pictures done by Andy Warhol (but in different colors). To give the shirt a different look, I didn't arrange them in the square and instead put them all slightly crooked on the side. What do you think?

on a burning bridge, your options are minimal at best depending on where you're standing and how much breath is in your chest. if it came down to it,would you high-tail home and hide or dance on fire and enjoy the ride?

Very nice!  I think the stitching really adds to the overall feel.  Smiley

I used polymark fabric paint. It gets kind of shiny after a few coats. Smiley

I wouldn't wear it, but it is a pretty cool shirt Smiley Looks professionally done.

Slightly stupid question: Do you use a specific kind of fabric paint, or some other kind?

*edit*  Whoops, you already answered that Smiley

I'm not a huge fan of iron on paper but you could try ironing the design onto a shirt? If you go to an art school they might have the heavy duty heat setting machines to make it not crack and peel.
