Step 3 Using the black metallic dimensional fabric paint – scribe “at” between the flocked words. Let dry.

Step 4 Cut out a heart shape from paper to use as a blocking out stencil.

Step 5 Laying the shirt flat, add cardboard inside shirt to prevent paint from bleeding through to back side. Lay the paper heart over the words (you can use double-stick tape to secure the paper heart in place).

Craft Notes

Since this is a polyester shirt, the dye takes to the fabric more lightly than it would to cotton fabric.
