If you're one of us special people who like to use duct tape for all the problems that come up in life or just don't have freezer paper (because for example you're poor, european, or both), this instructable will show you how to make your very own stenciled shirt with the help of duct tape.
Step 1: Materials & Tools.
For this project, you'll need:
1) duct tape
2) acrylic paint
4) a sheet of paper
5) cutter knife
For this particular design that I chose you'll need all of the above and:
8) soft spot for the 80s
9) a coin
Step 2: Shirt & Design.
As shirt I chose a simple white singlet, but I recommend using smooth textiles that aren't necessarily fine rib. First of all, you'll need to think of a design. Preferably something with straight lines, easy to reconstruct with duct tape. The simpler, the better. You can find some black/white stencils at http://126.96.36.199/~stencil/stencils.htm
I chose a simple 3,5" computer disk, like I'm so cool.
Step 3: Stencil & Islands.
Now recreate the design with the duct tape. Stick it onto the shirt and remember that the coloured parts need to be the uncovered parts of the shirt as you're going to paint over the duct tape stencil later on.
For the difficult parts (for example letters), draw them onto a pad with a pencil, so that you can stick a piece of duct tape over it and cut it out with your cutter knife (in case your duct tape isn't see-through, lay some duct tape out and draw directly on it!) If you don't have a cutter knife, a razorblade will do. If you're emo like me, you have plenty of them.
