I wanted to do something a bit different with Lumi Inkodye today. I decided to try my hand in airbrushing with invisible dye and see my results develop after I was complete. I really like the way the colors came out!

Step 1: Pin Shirt to Canvas & Stencil to Shirt
I used my easel and an old canvas to pin the shirt to making sure to put the canvas inside the shirt. This way the dye will not bleed into the back side of the shirt. I then taped the stencil into the shirt.
Step 2: Mix Lumi Ink and Airbrush
Mix the Lumi Ink - 1/2 distilled water and 1/2 Lumi ink or thicker if your airbrush can handle it.
When spraying, be sure to hold the stencil up against the shirt so over spray does not get inside it and dab off run off with a rag.
Step 3: Develop Lumi Ink
Let the Lumi ink stay out doors and develop in the sun leaving the stencil in place.
Step 4: Smile!!
Remove the stencil, wash with the Lumi Inko wash and you have a cool skull shirt!
