Use pattern to trace skull design onto black t-shirt. Paint in with white matte. Let dry.
Paint face with black. Immediately sprinkle on black glitter. Shake off excess. Outline design with red glitter paint. Let dry.
Vest: Remove sleeves from red t-shirt. Lay shirt flat and cut up center. Cut sides into a V, as shown in photo. Using black Scribbles paint, draw lines on shirt about 2-inches apart. Use flat paintbrush to brush out the lines to create stripes. Add buttons down front, 3 on each side, with gold glitter paint. Let dry.
Use paint directly from the bottle to draw the white skull and crossbones onto the tote bag. Let dry and add eyes, nose and mouth as shown.
