Going straight from your political rally to the club and don't want to change? Wanna be political by day but pick up fellow Cat lovers by night? By using glow in the dark paint on certain parts of your shirt, you can have only the secret message show up in the dark!

2 sponges (or one that clean in between using)
some pieces of cardboard, or a folded newspaper

Step 2: Cut the Stencils
Cut out the print outs so they can be used as stencils (I used an xacto knife to do this). Then use scissors to cut all the letters apart so that they are easy to arrange.
Step 3: Arrange the stencil letters on your shirt.

Step 4: Start Painting
Use the sponge and the Non-Glow in the dark paint, to fill in the letters that you don't want to glow.
Step 5: Paint with Glowing Paint!
Now use the Glow in the Dark paint to paint in the rest of the letters (your hidden message that you want to glow in the dark.)
Step 6: Time to Dry!
Let your finished shirt dry.
Step 7: Woo You're Done!
Admire your finished product (it might take a few hour of "charging" under a bright light, before your shirt glows very bright)
