I bought a purple flannel shirt in a sale for almost nothing ( 3 euro). When the bright cellophane came off the color was not so purple as I had thought. A drab misty purple-grey. Boring! Now more than a year later I only put it on once, and my colleagues wondered what had been gone wrong in the laundry. "Nothing I said, its purple". They looked at me with eyes that spoke:"Yeah, and the moon is purple too!".
So the shirt had to go, or with some arts and craft brought back to life.
Here is what i did to revive a not so old but unloved shirt.
I didn't buy any of these. All were in the house. The small plastic bottle I once bought in a artist's shop, to make lines on canvas with very fluent paint.
