I wouldn't worry too much - it looked awesome to me (I'm a huge Zelda fan and believe me, we Zelda nuts are completely swayed by crafty depictions of our obsession). He'll feel lucky to have it, and you! Cheesy
anyways, we are all waiting with bated breath for the updated pic. Smiley
Ahh, you lot cheer me up no end  Smiley I love Craftster  Kiss

Here's the updated pictures - the skin tone is a lot pinker (I preferred the other colour myself but overall this is better) but I think it still works?

And close up so you can see the difference:

I think that paint works a lot better (as long as it holds up in the wash!). Thoughts?  Smiley

I think he'll love it!   I do think it looks better now that the grid isn't noticeable, and the colors look fine.  Smiley   Great job!


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

I love the shirt! I was having some problems with fabric paint being translucent, so what I would suggest is to paint all of the flesh section white (which is opaque), let it dry, they paint the skin color on again. the shirt will be extra stiff in those areas, but washing it a few times should fix the problem.

I think no matter how it comes out he will be impressed and love it.

First off let me saw awesome shirt.  Second of all you did a really good touch up job that really made the flesh colour look a lot better.  Lastly in order to prevent having to draw grid lines on any other shirts you make I highly suggest using freezer paper.  You can draw and cut out all of your lines in advance and then you just iron it down and it sticks so there is not risk of having your template move on you.  Freezer paper really is a must for any kind of fabric stenciling.

I hope your boyfriend really likes it.  He's lucky to have a girlfriend who is as crafty and thoughtful as you are Wink

Thanks so much for all the encouraging comments and helpful tips everyone! Your kind words are much appreicated  Smiley I'm going to be getting acrylics in the green and brown I think once I'm finished my current swap, so I'll keep you all updated as it happens  Wink

That's a good idea, Hotbettie! Do you use fabric paint for the white or acrylics? I'm using Deka Permanent paints and they do seem to have a touch of translucency about them regardless of colour, as you can see where the green and brown bleeds instead of covers...I think in future, depending on how this one washes, I'll probably use acrylics, although I don't intend to do much stencilling, heh.

Ah, Bunny in a Bear, the elusive freezer paper...unfortunately I don't think we get it here (I'm in Ireland), although I haven't looked all that hard. The masking tape works pretty well for this project, but you just have to be a bit more careful with laying it down than I was, I think. But I have to say, your Battlestar stencilled shirt is amazing!! Maybe I should look harder for that freezer paper...

I hope he really likes it too...I'm lucky to have a boyfriend as awesome as him so I guess it evens out Grin I love making things for him and giving him little presents (I already have an idea for something else I want to make him after our anniversary, as well as another thing for it) and I like putting thought into things because I'm always thinking about him anyway!

...Haha, sorry, I just wanted to make sure that if he is reading this, he'll really regret it  Wink
