I used fabric paint on two different items for two different Harry Potter swaps. They were both translucent paints onto dark colors.

On the bag I used the white paint method



and on the t-shirt I used the same brand of paint, but it was specifically for dark cloths, which made it opaque. (Just don't let piratetreasure see this, I sent it but she doesn't know that she is getting it yet.)

Hotbettie, that is AMAZING! I'm in the Everything HP swap too and now my swap anxiety and worries have pretty much quadrupled Tongue
I can only find one brand of fabric paint here though so unfortunately there's not much choice.

I'm really glad y'all like my tshirt so far! Cheesy

I just looked at the topics that you have started and I don't think you have anything to worry about as far as the swap is concerned. It seems to me that you have the same kind of problem that I used to have, and that is seeing only the flaws. I learned to let it go and that someone who is not crafty probably wouldn't even notice them anyway.(which is the majority where I live)

I made a few shirts like these a couple of years back!  My technique involved cutting out squares of "make your own stamp" stuff.  Then, I drew a cross in the center of where I wanted my design to start, and used those little squares as stamps with plain ol' acrylic paint.  Since I had a stamp for each color, I just happily stamped out my design following a huge version of the sprite I was recreating.
You could easily make a few square stamps like that, and then go right over your existing design with some opaque fabric paint.  The whole touchup would only take about an hour or so from start to finish, and would give it a polished look.  And then you'd have stamps to make more shirts/transfers in the future. Smiley

The sprites I did were from Bubble Bobble (Bob, blue/pink dinosaur) and Super Mario Bros. 1 (blooper, the squid in world 2-1).   My shirts are now two years old at least, and the cheap Delta Ceramcoat paint I used is still there!  I figured it would be good to use for shirts because I've gotten that stupid stuff on clothes accidentally and it NEVER comes out!
