TWIST YOUR TEE: FABRIC PENS
Decorate your tee with fabric paint or fabric pens. Did you know you can use a sharpie to create a watercolour effect on your tee.
Fabric Pens / Sharpies
Step 1. Lay your t-shirt out on a flat surface and put a piece of cardboard (or two magazines, like I did) inside the shirt so the marker doesn’t bleed through to the back.
Let the shirt dry for at least ten minutes. Don’t wash for at least two days so the marker can set completely, and wash the shirt inside-out.
1 cup cold water
5 tablespoons cornstarch
5 tablespoons regular bleach
Mix cold water and cornstarch together in a medium sized saucepan. It’s important that the water is cold so that the cornstarch doesn’t cause any lumps in the gel. Over medium high heat, stir the mixture continuously until it is very thick and pasty. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
Add the bleach to the gel and blend well. Carefully pour the gel mixture into container of choice.
When working with bleach, it’s always a good idea to wear gloves to protect hands, and clothing that you’re not too worried about in case of any splashing.
