We recently discussed about how fashionable, printed t-shirts are, and that’s why today I’m going to share with you on how to DIY a feather print t-shirt. Once you have it, you can pair it with Daisy Denim Shorts and you’re ready to go out!
Items you need:
You will require Linoleum blocks, fabric painting, paintbrush, tools for carving & also wine corks which you can get after drinking your best wines. To create your own feather print t-shirt, these are the couple of things that you need to carry out this project. Next, you will definitely require a t-shirt. It can be a plain t-shirt or a printed t-shirt but you wish to add feather prints on it. Either ways will be fine, as it is your own project.
Steps to take:
First off, you can make a feather stencil out of linoleum blocks using the carving tools. If you do not have these, you can also use a thin foam board. There are always alternative tools which you can substitute to carry out the same task. Once you do this, you will have a stamp-like blocks as a template for the painting. You can also use the carving tools to create even more detailing to create more realistic feathers. The more stamps, the more unique the t-shirt will be.
Next, you can use the wine corks to be used as handles behind the stamp blocks. Alternatively, you can also use a foam board as the handle for you to carry out the stamping process later on. You are now almost ready to start stamping!
Last but not least, lay out the t-shirt you wish to print on and insert a piece of cardboard inside the t-shirt. This will prevent any seeping through of ink or paint through the fabric and runining your t-shirt. Using the paintbrush, gently paint the stamp blocks with the fabric painting of your choice. It is also recommended for you to dap excess paint onto a piece of scrap paper before imprinting it on your t-shirt. Once you are ready, stamp on your t-shirt with the feather blocks slowly but firmly. Do it randomly and you will have a very unique t-shirt.
Do not do both sides at one go. Do either the front or back, and then switch it up after it dries up. Leave your t-shirt to dry for a couple of hours or you can use a hair-dryer to speed up the process. Once completed, you will have a one of a kind t-shirt to wear on dates!
