T-shirt painting

Everyone in the wardrobe has the most simple and even boring things. For example, white t-shirts or turtlenecks. When such things are bored with their simplicity, they do not have to be thrown out. Another reason for writing off items for scrap can be small stains that are not amenable to otstiryvaniyu. A way out of these problems can be a drawing. There can be several ways to apply a picture, but in this master class you will consider the option of self-drawing a picture. You will need clothes (in our case, a white cotton T-shirt). In fact, it can be a simple monophonic thing. The fabric material can be not only cotton, but also some other. Also for work it is necessary to choose a harmonious pattern. It can be printed out and then transferred to a tissue using a copy paper or painted on a fabric immediately, it depends on the ability to draw. In any case, for convenience, it is better to put something solid or at least cardboard under the fabric to be painted.This is necessary first of all for the convenience of drawing, and secondly, in order to prevent them from leaking onto the reverse side of the T-shirt when applying paints. Accordingly, you will need paint for fabric. They are different depending on the planned material. In any case, neither gouache nor any other colors will work. Only special for the fabric. You can buy them in specialized stores for creativity. When all the materials and tools are ready, you can get to work. In this master class will be painted white cotton t-shirt with a dragon pattern. The dragon has green, orange, yellow and black colors. To begin to translate the pattern on the fabric using carbon copy. Putting the T-shirt on a wooden stool, placing the cardboard under the front part, we place the printed picture with the enclosed copy paper and proceed to the translation. Due to the fact that the fabric itself is soft, you need to transfer it to it with a blunt pencil, and not a sharp pen, because otherwise the paper will simply tear, and the pattern on the fabric will not work.

When translating, you should strongly press on the lines so that they are printed exactly, you should not hurry,otherwise, you will have to finish drawing a lot and correct it by hand with a pencil.

After the pattern is transferred to the fabric, it should be carefully and gradually remove the pattern and carbon paper from the fabric. It is best to alternately lift the edge and see whether all the basic elements have transferred. If not, it is necessary to return the drawing back and circle the untranslated elements again, pressing the pencil more strongly. It is because of the need for this operation that it is better not to remove the entire picture, but only to lift the edges. When all the basic elements are translated, it is necessary to complete the fine details. No matter how good and strong the pressure on the pencil is, the small lines may still not be completed. In such a situation, it is necessary to draw all the lines with a simple pencil, thereby bringing the drawing to the logical end.
 Drawing with a ready contour
The next step will be drawing contour drawing. This can be done either with contour paints or with ordinary fabric paints.The differences in them are insignificant, and the choice remains for the master. In this master class, contour 3D paints for fabric were used, but were applied with a brush so that there was no 3D effect (it was inappropriate). The paint should be applied with a fine brush, neatly and slowly. Wrong strokes will be very difficult to remove.
 Drawing with a ready contour
Before proceeding with the application of paint, it is necessary that the contour be thoroughly dried. When it dries out, you can continue to work. It is necessary to gradually paint over the picture like a coloring. It is best to decorate by the principle of choosing colors, not elements. In this master class, after the contour, orange paint is applied to all the parts providing this color.
 Drawing with filled out fragments
Before applying the next color it is always necessary to allow drying or at least to dry up the previous color. After the orange color is applied yellow. Do not forget to thoroughly wash the brush when changing colors. If you do not, you can get dirty and ugly color.
Drawing with shaded fragments
In the same way we apply all the colors. If you do not have the required color in the assortment, you can always resort to mixing. For lighter tones, you can use a special thinner, which is sold in the same stores as the paint itself. It is worth remembering that when diluted, the paint becomes more fluid and may stick to the planted cardboard (and if there is none, then flow to the back). After applying all the paints give thoroughly dry the entire picture.

Drying time depends on the fabric and dyes that are used. On average, the paint dries within 24 hours. Special instructions will always be written on the box or paint cans. After the T-shirt has carefully dried, you need to carefully remove the cardboard.It should not be strongly pulled or pulled, because the paint could leak a little and stick. After the paint has dried, the T-shirt is ready and you can wear it.
