So i'm really upset because i worked over 5 hours on this shirt and although 3.5 out of 5 of my dinos turned out great (the pterodactyl is kinda messed up, but i can get over it) but my poor triceratops decided to be a runny mess. To make the problem worse, it's in bright yellow in the middle of this shirt! I guess i mixed the Textile medium differently then usual (i might have been getting tired because the triceratops was the last dino i did...)

I was just wondering if any of you know a way to fix this, I have not heat set the pterodactyl or the triceratops yet, so would soaking it in some type of soapy water solution get the excess paint to disappear?  i was so excited about this shirt, it would be a shame to never wear it because of a runny mess of a triceratops.

i kinda like the bright yellow tri!  he looks radioactive and the pterydactyl looks like a menacing shadow swooping down to get them.  hehee...

i think acrylics set pretty fast so it is probably too late.  you could try scrubbing, but it would be difficult to be accurate.

maybe you should give all of them a "radioactive glow" and pretend it was on purpose?  it could look cool that way.

i might try scrubbing with some detergent and a toothbrush, i just have a feeling it might not work. (like you said these acrylics set crazy fast)

i might try giving the others radioactive glows as well...hehe good idea!
