Pouring Paint on a T-Shirt

(Remember – you can click the pics, and they’ll open up in a new tab.  Click ’em again, and they’ll enlarge.)

I’ve got 2 t-shirts that I was going to do something “arty” with for my sis-in-law, but the original plan got KiBoshed, and she said I could try an Acrylic Pour on ’em.

First, I did this TEST pour on one of my own t-shirts.  (I did it as a 3-part Video on InstaGram  if you want to watch it there – @chermckittrick .)

Things I Learned:

Do NOT wet the t-shirt first; I think this is making it bleed, but I won’t be sure till it dries.

It might be better to do it with the t-shirt laying flat, but that would mean I couldn’t have drips down the back.

Don’t use any orange, stick to pink, blue, yellow, and purple – the orange muddies some of the other colors.

These pics were taken minutes after the pour, so I have no idea what it’s going to dry like.  I’ll let it set for 3-4 days, then throw it in the dryer, on high, to really set the colors.


Moe, does this make you want to change your mind??
