Glitter and glow paint make for the perfect pumpkin, whether you’re wearing it to parties or out trick-or-treating.
Tulip® 3D Fashion Paint – Nontoxic, permanent paint formulated for a lasting adhesion to fabric, even throughout multiple washings. Paint remains dimensional once dry.
Tulip® Fashion Glitter™ - Polyester glitter will be permanently adhered to fabric when applied with Tulip® Fashion Glitter™ Bond.
Enlarge pumpkin pattern to desired size.
Tear a sheet of freezer paper large enough to fit pattern. Trace pattern onto freezer paper, then cut out designs with a craft knife (leaving outside edges of paper intact) to create stencil.
Position stencil on front center of T-shirt, waxy side down, and iron over stencil to hold it in place temporarily. Make sure edges of stencil are sealed.
Insert shirt board between layers of shirt to prevent paint seepage.
Squeeze puddles of each paint color on palette. Use the craft sponge to pounce White Slick paint into stencil openings. Let dry and add a second coat. Let dry.
Sponge Yellow Glow onto lower portion of eyes, nose, mouth and lower half of the pumpkin stripes and base. Let dry and add a second coat.
Pounce Neon Orange Slick onto upper area of eyes, nose, mouth and top area of stripes and across base, blending with the Yellow Glow where the colors meet. Let dry. Peel off stencil.
Create a swirl in each eye with Yellow Glow, then add a line under the eyes. Sprinkle some gold glitter on top while paint is still wet.
Continue adding a thin line of paint on bottom area of nose, mouth, pumpkin base and on one side of the pumpkin stripes. Sprinkle gold glitter over wet paint. Gently press glitter down with piece of scratch paper and let dry. Shake off excess glitter.
Squeeze thin line of Neon Orange Slick around the upper edges of eyes, nose, mouth and top and bottom of unlined areas. Let dry.
