This was done for the secret craftster swap a few months ago. I rather like how it turned out, but sadly my receiver disappeared and I never found out how she liked it.

It's acrylic with textile medium painted on a ladies M fitted T. I don'y have any pics of it on anyone though Sad

wow!  my mom collects giraffes and would seriously lay down in traffic for this.  or at least ask me to so that she could wear it afterward.  i'm so sad that your partner disappeared without any feedback.  Sad if you ever feel up for making another....hint hint...my pm box is open 24 hours.  Smiley  it's absolutely lovely.  i really really really dig it.

wow...  I think that is pretty wonderful!

Does the textile medium and acrylic paint work well?  is this something that can be washed or would it crack?

It really is a beautiful shirt... sorry to hear about your partner.

most stuff I've done with just acrylic and no textile medium tend to hold up for a while.. I think the textile medium thins the paint out more so you can get a thinner more flexible coating 'cause it seemed very light when I was done ;]

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

I loooooooove giraffes, and I love this shirt. Amazing painting job. Probably the receiver is too busy showing it off to hang out on craftster anymore.
