Project Instructions

Prewash and dry shirt to remove sizing; do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets.

Insert cardboard piece between layers of shirt.

Use chalk pencil and ruler to create a 7” upside down triangle in center of shirt. Draw a diagonal line from top edge to side of triangle, starting about an inch in from corner. Repeat on other side to create diamond shape. Brush off the corners with a damp cloth.

Shake bottles of Soft Fabric Paints well. Squeeze a generous amount of each onto a piece of foil.

Fill in the diamond with Sunshine Yellow. Apply one to two coats of paint, letting dry between coats. Blend Mandarin Orange from the outside edges of diamond to the center. Let dry 1 hour.

Shake bottles of 3D Fashion Paint well. Squeeze Black Slick paint directly from bottle, holding tip to surface and squeezing gently. Create “MOM” inside the diamond as shown.

Squeeze True Red around edges of diamond in three solid lines to form a ½” band.

Squeeze a line Silver Glitter ¼” from the red band to form a silver border. Let dry 24 hours before wearing. (You may speed the drying process with a blow dryer.)

Wait 72 hours before washing. Wash in warm water, gentle cycle with mild soap; line dry. Clean up with soap and water. Do not dry clean.
