So a little introduction to this project.  April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and April 6th was sort of designated as 'A Day to End Sexual Violence', sort of as a day of awareness.  Well, I made around 20 shirts and sold them to my friends.  The money we made went to buying the shirts, and any left over is gunna be donated to Rainn (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network).  Picturrrrres:

(Just so you know, it's school rule that you tuck in your shirt, just so you know we're not all retarded)







(me on the right Smiley  I'm not that fat (or that ugly), I promise)












I used mylar (that plastic stuff) for the stencil cause I had to use it over and over again.  It worked pretty well. I alo just used acrylic paint.

That's really awesome!  The stenciling looks very professional, and it's a really good cause.

Hey, just so you know, I work with retarded kids every day. Although your cause is a great one and kudos to you for your stenciling and your supportive efforts, comments such as yours seem to degrade all that we in the "retarded" community do to uphold the rights of those less mentally fortunate.

What a great idea! I didn't even know April 6th was designated as such, but I was aware that April is Sexual Assualt Awareness month. Ironically enough, I was raped on April 6th. I really want to make a shirt now, but I don't know where/when I'd wear it. (Business dress at work, I know it wouldn't be 'appropriate'). Maybe I'll stencil a messenger bag or something.

Anyway, lovely shirts and great efforts to support such a worthy cause!

I used to do a lot of t-shirt stenciling.  It is even easier (and faster!) if you use spray paint.

Here are the steps when using spray paint:
1) Make stencil.  (File folders work well, but mylar sounds even better for a longer lasting stencil)
2)Lightly spray glue back of stencil so it doesn't move around when spray painting t-shirt.
3)Apply stencil.  Cover everything on the shirt you do not want spray paint on with newspaper.
4)Paint.  I would go over it lightly until you get the desired color. 
Note- dark spray paint colors work on light colored t-shirts, but not the other way around.  Don't ask me why.

Good work with the acrylic, and for supporting a good cause!  I hope this helps on your next projects.
