I'd LOVE to know the answer to that too!!!
Everyone wants black tshirts and they are the hardest.

Currently I use white indoor/outdoor patio acryllic paint as my base and have to do 2 or 3 layers and then I can paint whatever color I want it to be.
If I want it to be white it takes 3 to 5 layers.
The shirts are really stiff with all these layers of paint.

There has to be a better way!
3533  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re: Heat setting and long-lasting-ness questions on: March 20, 2005 04:29:24 AM
You have to iron the paint (put something over it like cheese cloth so you don't ruin your iron. I believe you use the highest setting for 20 seconds.
And don't wash your item for at least 7 days.

Sometimes it's a hit or miss thing - I've found different paints work different ways - some will last forever - some won't work at all.

I usually use that method and then after I do wash it I touch it up if needed.

There is something you can add to acrylic paint called Extender (or probably anything else depending on what store you get it at)
it thins the paint - keeps it from drying longer and increases transparency.
Probably exactly what you are looking for.
You can get it anywhere acrylic paint is sold - even Walmart.
Hope this helps

I originally was looking for superman comics but couldn't find ones to suit my purse and I found all those covers... So I used them. I did an image search on Google for superman comics.

The dimensions are 7x10 front/7x5 sides/5x10 bottom.

The purse didn't hold up all that well so for the next one I added a stiff plastic placemat from Walmart to the back before I taped it and added some clear thin plastic to the handles to reinforce them. It worked out a lot better.

Good luck : )

Here are some new ones I made...

3536  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Problems with Duct Tape on: March 03, 2005 03:23:54 PM
I've just recently started working with duct tape and I love it but I've run into a few problems I was wondering if anyone could help me.

1.  When I make a wallet after someone uses it for about a week or so there is all kinds of sticky tape residue all over the inside. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to prevent that?
2. Is there something I can use to write/paint on duct tape that won't come off? Ball point pen wipes off - permanent marker comes off with water and paint markers work wierd on there.
3. I had another question but it got lost somewhere in the deep dark recesses of my mind. Oh well.

If anyone has any ideas to help I'd really appeciate it!

Which badge-a-minit did you get? Because I had one of those small hand ones and they messed up a lot. I upgraded to a bigger table model and had less problems but still once in a while one will mess up. You just have to take your time and make sure the plastic is in perfect. I don't think they are easy till you upgrade to the expensive machines which I never could afford.
Sorry I'm not much help. Good luck.

That's really cool. I never thought to use duct tape with a shirt!
And I love that shirt : )

That is the coolest necklace I've ever seen : )
I have a bunch of my mom's old costume jewelry necklaces that she gave me to remake and now I know how I'm going to do it.

Thanks for sharing!
