Paint a T-Shirt

Perfect T Shirt painting made easy

finished painted T-shirt


Painting a T shirt is so easy, it's a perfect way to spend the afternoon and, what's more, you have something great to wear at the end of it. Either you can paint the T-shirt for your children or they can do it themselves (which is more fun). Either way they’ll love wearing the end result. The best part is that you can buy plain white T shirts incredibly cheaply, so painting on them is no more expensive than painting on a big piece of paper. You can’t beat personalising your own clothes, and it’s much more fun, so much cheaper and about 1000 times more personal than buying a slogan or branded T-shirt.
. . . Wondering what you should paint? You can get ideas from anywhere, off the web, from the TV or from your kids’ latest favourite film release. Fabric paint is not expensive and if you only buy a few colours you can mix a bit of acrylic paint with them to get the exact colour you want.
. . . The key with any designing or making project is to have a good idea of what you want to do before you actually start making. Getting an idea worked out beforehand isn’t some magic gift that some people have and some people don’t. Firstly, it’s a trick anyone can learn, and secondly whoever is doing the designing, however experienced they are, they have to work at it a bit. All you have to do is start with something you like. Simplify it in your mind, or on paper, so that you are not making your job too difficult; remember simpler is better. More often the best images that look really good on a T-shirt are the simple, striking images. If you feel moved to include text or a slogan in your design, then type it up on the computer first and increase the font size so that it is as big as you can get it then printing it out and incorporate it into your drawn design. You’ll be able to trace round the words to get a really professional finish. This project comes with a blank template of some little T shirts so that you can start sketching out your ideas right away. Don’t necessarily jump at the first idea you have, develop it, refine it and make it better. Any extra effort you put in at the beginning getting the design right will pay off in the finished article.

Younger children might not have the patience to see the whole project through. Get them to design the T shirt on the little T shirt blanks and then enlarge the image and paint most of it on to the shirt yourself, leaving a small bit for them to finish off.
. . . Hand painted T shirts make a wonderful and very inexpensive gift, so if you’re wondering what to give someone for a birthday present, why not paint them a T shirt. Follow our instructions for the best results, just click on the paper format you have, to download it.
