i'm fairly new to stencilling, and i got a hoodie for three dollars so i decided to try stenciling something onto it.  i was in a robot mood and found this on threadless and decided to make my own.


the problem is, i smudged a bit on his head.  does anybody know a way to retouch without a sharpie?

I wonder if a paint remover type thing would work?  Also isn't there something to get paint stains out of clothes? You might try that.

I kind of like the smudges, they give it personality.  Is that a heart on the ground?

I googled it and found there's a product called Goof Off 2that has a good reputation for getting paint off fabric.  I'm sure walmart, k-mart, any supermarket carries it.  Just be sure to test in an inconspicious area.

thanks for the help and feedback, and yeah, that's a heart on the ground.
schi118, the hoodie wasn't plain, it said "new york" on it but i got it anyway because it was only three dollars and quite comfortable.  so i cut the letters off and added my stencil.  i got it on the bargain rack in the boys section of someplace in the mall... rue 21 i think?  wherever my little sister was shopping.

I don't think you should touch up. The smudges give it character and add mood to the depressed robot feel. I love it! Cheesy

Exactly - don't touch it up.  It looks really really good as is.  That's the best looking depressed robot ever and I want one.
