Introduction: Watermark T Shirt

About: I'm just a girl who likes to make things. Check out my blog at www.faccidesigns.blogspot.com. Thanks for visiting!

Make this fun t shirt in just a few steps. I found this project on u-createcrafts.com

You will need:
A plain white t shirt
Elmer's Blue Gel Glue (must use this type of glue)
Fabric Dye
A piece of cardboard or plastic to place in between your shirt

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Write or Draw on Your T Shirt

Wet your t shirt thoroughly and ring out. Place your cardboard or plastic (I used a plastic garbage bag) in between your shirt so the Blue Gel Glue does not go through to the back of the shirt.

Write a name, a poem, a quote or draw a simple picture with the Blue Gel. Let dry completely...can take up to a couple of hours.

Step 2: Dye!

Once the Elmer's Blue Gel Glue is completely dry, it's time to dye your shirt. Follow the instructions on your dye package.

The Blue Gel Glue should come off in the process. If not, once the shirt is "dyed and dried", wash your shirt and it will come off.

Viola!

Hmm. Maybe the outline of the text would be more defined if we used glue gun? What do you think? :)

well, it's a special glue you have to use so you would have to try to transfer that glue to a glue gun...that won't work.

I wonder if it would work with a glue gun, not sure the glue would wash away

Thanks! Another idea that might be fun for kids is to have them draw a simple image on a piece of paper with a thick black marker or crayon and then place that paper underneath the shirt. You should be able to see the drawing through the shirt so you can trace over it with the glue. Working with the blue gel glue can sometimes be a little tough and this technique might be easier for kids.
