I received shirts with a silkscreened image on the back of the shirt but there is an error in it. Instead of a male image its a female image and all I need to do is trim the hair a little and it will work, its a silhouette. The silkscreen is a lime color on a black tshirt. I've tried a black marker, painters ink, opaque markers, etc. They all work in a way but the problem is that it is still shiny but in black. It is evident that it was covered. Is their anything out there that I can use that would blend with the black tshirt in terms of giving the covered area a flat finish or more of a blended finish to the tshirt. I need help soon, I have 48 shirts to do by Monday.

If you own your own silkscreen frame you should design a square with the new silhouette inside it and print a full opaque block around the image covering up the areas you want but leaving the part you want open all around so that it looks like it was planned. Does that make sense?
I tried to do a quick sample of what i meant.
