Material List

  • Tulip® Soft® Fabric Paint Turquoise, Azalea, Sunshine Yellow, Lime,
  • Tulip® Dimensional Fabric Paint Slick Black
  • White 100% cotton T-shirt
  • T-Shirt board or cardboard piece
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper plate

Project Instructions

1. Insert a T-shirt board or cardboard piece inside of tee for a stable painting surface and to prevent paint from seeping through to back side.

2. Place tee on a flat surface.

3. Squeeze out each color onto paper plate

4. Dip paintbrush into paint.

5. Brush paint onto tee where you would like the placement of first heart. When applying paint do not give a full coverage. You want to see the brush strokes.

6. Repeat for each color. For larger hearts paint a larger space.

7. Alternate direction of brush strokes for each color application.

8. Let dry.

9. Freehand hearts over paint swatches with Black Slick dimensional paint.


In order to achieve the brush stroke look, use very light amounts of paint on brush and add paint as necessary.
