I tried to keep this multi layer fairly simple (they can get really in depth and silly) but unfortunately, my picture selection was poor...so pretend that my picture and color choice was better:))


1. Find your picture. I chose betty davis...just cause.

2. Posterize it on level 3 or four (depending on how many layers you want...i did three)

3. Print out three copies (for my instance...i'll just stick with three throughout this, but as many layers as you want can be substituted)
and cut out one shade of black in each one (i take LOTS of artistic freedom)
** Edit to remove image link that wasn't working ***

4. Prepare three shades of paint (one for each layer) *hint* make sure your colors are REALLY distinguishable...almost exagerrated...you'll see why in my shirt at the end.
** Edit to remove image link that wasn't working ***

5. So here's where i cheated. normally you would go lightest first and begin to paint ...MARK YOUR CORNERS!!! but i'm lazy, and i made this shirt in under five minutes...so i painted the lightest color on the shirt in a square.
** Edit to remove image link that wasn't working ***

6. Put the next darkest layer on top once the first layer dries (or in my case....the base coat) make sure the layers line up...and paint with the next darkers color. repeat for how ever many layers you have.
** Edit to remove image link that wasn't working ***


7. Voila! lovely new shirt *hopefully*

...here you see why the colors need to contrast more. like i said, this shirt was meant to be really simple, and it is...but if you want to be more complicated (see my tupac shirt) just add in layers and colors as needed.

not that i'm aware of. However, if you'll PM me, I'll let you email the picture to me, and I can three or four layer the pic for you and send it back!

i tried a 3 layer stencil once and it might have just been the paint i used, but the edges where the paint met, it ran. how'd you keep it from doing that?

My guess would be that if you let the paint dry all the way, it shouldn't run when you do the next layer. I was wondering, though, what did you put the stencil on? Would cardstock work alright?

Trisarahtop is right

You have to let the paint totally dry, or it will run.
However I like that look

And the paper I used this time was just regular printer paper. But, a while ago when I was making duplicates of a shirt, I used photopaper (glossy or matte) so they would be reusable. You just have to make sure that the paper lines up every time. Thats probably the hardest part of multi layering

yeah, the pictures don't work because my site that I was hosting them on shut down, and, of course, I lost the originals. I'll get around to making another multi-layer something here soon, and I'll post up up. Promise!

By any chance, have you tried this with the freezer paper stencils and tried ironing a second layer on something already painted?  Have one that I think it going to require that and kind of concerned about what it will do to the other paint.
