Woo i've been busy, bout about 4 t shirts one day coz they were all $5.
Went back the next day and got 6 more - 3 for $10
Some were for me, my sister, friends and then a couple for our netball teams training t shirts.

These aren't really silk screens but they are screen printing with stencils so I hope I put this in the right place.




I really love the Art Nouveau art so I decided to make a stencil from one of Alphonse Mucha's artwork.
Man it was painful to cut out  Shocked
The T shirt is a really nice dark purple but it doesn't show up too well in the pic.
Used gold paint on this one.


Snow white t shirt.
Bit of trial and error with the red paint on black
Ended up hand painting it in white THEN painting red over the top.


These two will end up as tote bags whenever I can be bothered to finish sewing them.
Gold and silver paint


And finally my pride and joy.
Based on:

But I plan on painting it in Ariel's traditional colours but maybe a bit more pastely.

I really like the birds on the line/branch image and the mermaid image. Those are awesome!

Great work, so nice and clean too! I can never find cheap shirts that fit well Sad

I love all of them, but my favorite is Snow White!
Please post the Ariel one when you finish it.

 I too get inspiration from hot topic. I hate paying 22-24 dollars for a t shirt!

the portrait of the girl... with the hair... is INCREDIBLE, i wouldn't have believed it was a stencil until i looked at it long enough to figure out how you avoided "islands". it's flawless. it was a pain to cut i'm sure, but worth it. you should be proud.

Thanks Cheesy
Cutting stencils is pretty easy for me.. I don't know why lol
I usually do them in from of the tv, that one took me about 2 hours maybe?

What type of paint did you use?  Did you put a sealer or anything over the paint?  Im wanting to make some tshirts but want to use a good paint that wont crack or wash out.

I used the paints from my Textiles class but we get it from CCG Industries in NZ
It's a specific screen print ink and heat sets so it doesn't wash out.

I suggest you either use a fabric paint or mix in some Textile medium into normal acrylic paint to turn it into fabric paint. You should do this so it isn't too plasticky and so it wont crack
You always need to heat set afterwards as well to make it stay in the wash.
