Those look great. Something that I have found that works very well for fabric painting is Golden Artists Colors acrylic medium #900...basically you add it to any cheapo acrylic paint and it's instant fabric paint that you can heat-set and wash on any setting you want. The ratio on the bottle syas 1:1 but I generally use 2:1 to stretch the gel medium further and the results are fine.

These are cool!  Have you tried different fabrics?  I have a couple of velour shirts that really need bullfighters or Elvis and was wondering which paints would work best...

I have painted on jeans and shirts, and all have been successful. =] Knit shirts that have ribs that stretch can cause the paint to crack though....

I have never tried painting on velour but I am pretty sure that the paint would work well... the only issue I could see would be that the acrylic doesn't stretch and if the fabric needs to stretch excessively, it would mess up the fit of the shirt. If the shirt has a more moderately tight fit, I expect that painting on it would work really well. =]

Very cute shirts. Hmm! Tell me more about Liquitex! Is it thick when it dries? Where can you buy it? What are the array of colors?

Liquitex is very thick when it dries, but if you only have the minimum thickness of layer, it is very comfortable and flexible. However, if you end up with a layer too thick it can be uncomfortable and prone to cracking.

Liquitex Basic is just inexpensive artist grade acrylic. You can buy it an any art store, its a staple in the painting aisles.  And it comes in an incredible array of colors  Grin
