Project Instructions

Step 1 Download desired guitar graphic from computer. Make two copies because you are going to burn two screens.

Step 2 On one of the copies, use a black permanent marker to completely fill in the image, so it is just a black shape of your guitar. This will be your “base” screen image. The other copy is your “detail” screen image. Create a screen for each of these images, following package instructions.

Step 3 Iron freezer paper to the inside front of your T-shirt.

Step 4 Spray front of T-shirt with Hawaiian Fizz fabric spray paint in a random pattern. Let dry.

Step 5 Remove freezer paper from inside shirt. Position shirt on ScreenIt™ base.

Step 6 Lightly spray shirt with Repositionable Tacky Spray™ and position “base” screen image on shirt.

Step 7 Apply alternating dollops of neon Soft® fabric paints along edge of base image. Screen image, being careful not to go over screened areas more than once to avoid over-mixing colors. Let dry.

Step 8 Position second, “detail” screen over first screened shape, lining up edges of design. Screen over with Ebony Soft® paint. Let dry.


Using Repositionable Tacky Spray™ when creating your screen and also when screening your image helps produce a crisper graphic.
