About a million years ago, I saw a post of this shirt: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=345518.0 I've always loved it, but it wasn't until March's destash challenge that I decided to use up a bunch of self mixed paint shades and make my own.

I tried to take the best contrast picture I could. I'm not sure if you can tell, but I've used 8 different colours. One benefit of being plus sized-- more room to do art on a shirt.

I'm plus-sized myself, but I've never thought about the added benefit of more room for designs. Brilliant. Smiley

I love this! Did you use a stencil or a stamp?

Looking for poly-clay earrings: one bacon, one fried egg. Also, a mishmash of red/orange/gold bracelets--beaded, braided, bangles, whatever! If you have the supplies, let's talk! (Please?) I'll swap all kinds of things in return!

I kinda think they're smiling too? The kids at work think they're happy robots, which makes me laugh.

grufflepuff, it's actually a thick layer of paint painted onto an actual cassette tape. If you press it on a hard surface like a table it doesn't adhere properly, since there are two edges to the cassette, but if you do it on top of carpeting it works great. Rinse the cassette tape off, and do it again and again, until your shirt is full!
