(redo of a project I recently posted)





This shirt started out as a plain black tee which I "reverse tie-dyed" using bleach, then stenciled over.

The stencil was created by tracing a design onto wax paper, then carefully using a razor knife to cut along the lines. Once the stencil was cut, I lightly sprayed the shirt and the backside of the stencil with hairspray, then used an iron to fuse the paper to the fabric. The hairspray securely keeps the stencil in place, but also peels away easily after.


Once the stencil was down I used a sponge-brush to dab layers of fabric paint into the fabric, making sure not to lift the corners of the stencil. I then allowed the paint to become somewhat tacky before I peeled the paper away. Done correctly this can produce results that look as clean as screen-printing.
