Most of the DIY's out there for this 'look' are started on a black shirt, and use bleach. But I had a white shirt that I really loved the shape of, and (of course) I spilled coffee on it. This is how I 'fixed' it.

Step 1: Gather supplies

white T-Shirt
Fabric Paint
wax paper
old toothbrush
craft stick (or disposable wooden chopstick)
plastic bags or other dropcloth to protect your surface
cardboard & tape
Wow! Amazing artistic skills.<br>Barrelruder
<p>thank you, that's very kind!</p><p>-give it a try, I bet you could do it too! :)</p>
<p>tried it on my first shirt tonight. turned out well have a few tweeks for my other ones! thanks for the awesome idea!</p>
<p>Looks great! I love the way you did the layout! And thanks for sharing the pic!!:)</p>
I love it! Out of curiosity, did you leave the back of your shirt white or paint both sides?
Thanks! I did leave the back white.
your shirt looks absolutely gorgeous!!!!!
Thank you!! :)
I showed this to my girlfriend and she really likes the shirt; could you tell me where I could get one for her?
Of course! The brand is called ZOA, but I bought it at a Sample Sale from their wholesale store in Manhattan. I'm not sure if they have regular retail stores &amp; where they would be. I would just suggest to Google the brand &amp; see if you can locate a store or an online retailer. Although, I did buy it last summer, so unfortunately that style may no longer be available.<br>Hope this helps, sorry I couldn't be more specific!
thank you very much! it was a little helpful, but unfortunately there is just so much stuff by ZOA.....would you happen to know what &quot;style&quot; the shirt is?
I'm sorry; I don't. As I said I purchased it over a year ago &amp; I don't have any other info on it
well thank you for all your help! :)
No problem, good luck!
Looks great.
Thank You :)
This is a fabulous tutorial! I would recommend going with the light colors first - it's much easier to paint black over a light color than vice versa - but clearly it worked well anyways!
Thanks for the input!
This is great.
Thank you! :)
COOL.. white paint, does it have the feel of little beads?
The paint does have some texture, but since it's fabric paint it is supposed to be pretty soft. Also, because I had to use a lot of black &amp; then add other colors too- it's a little stiffer than prior to painting. So: No; not quite &quot;little beads&quot; more like touching a reg painting.
never seen a &quot;tshirt' that shape, where'd it come from?
It's from a brand called ZOA, I actually bought it at a sample sale.
So doing it!!
Awesome! Feel free to share your pics! :)
That is beautiful! I love it!
