i tried the whole skyline thing at the bottom of a shirt using acrylic, what kind of paint did you use? cause my shirt ended getting really tight at the bottom, and so now i cant wear it,  do you, or anyone else, know why and how i can fix it next time? or just not have it happen at all?

if you add fabric medium to your acrylic paint it'll make the texture rubbery and adds some "give" to it...if your layer of paint is too thick that'll cause problems too...Straight acrylic paint just makes a solid mass so if you do it on stretchy fabric, like a t-shirt, you lose all the stretch.  If your fabric is a light color you can water down your paint so it's more like dying the fabric than painting on top of it, but that won't work if you need serious coverage.  Airbrushing is maybe your best bet if you're going all the way around a shirt that needs to stretch. Hope that maybe helps a bit? (i've been trying lots of different ways lately with plenty of failures to learn from  Wink)
