Step 1 Cover work surface with plastic table cover. Place T-shirt on covered work surface.
Step 2 Use rule and chalk to draw chevron lines onto shirt.
Step 3 Block out chevron lines with painter’s tape.
Step 4 Insert shirt board inside T-shirt and place it on a flat covered surface.
Step 5 Use paper towels to block off exposed areas where paint is not desired.
Step 6 Spray with Snow spray paint. Let dry. (If more than one application is needed, allow each layer to dry before applying the next. Repeat until desired look is achieved.)
Step 7 Remove painter’s tape and T-shirt board and set aside.
Step 8 Use pencil to trace bat(s) pattern onto freezer paper.
Step 9 Cut out bat(s) with craft knife to create stencil.
Step 10 Iron freezer paper stencil onto front of shirt where desired. Re-insert shirt board.
Step 11 Use craft sponge to apply Ebony Soft® fabric paint inside stencil openings. (If more than one application is needed, allow each layer to dry before applying the next. Repeat until desired look is achieved.)
Step 12 Remove freezer paper stencils.
Using a freezer paper stencil ensures clean lines.
Remember -- adult supervision is always required when working with an iron or other heated device.
