prideful patriot tank top

This stylish summer tank features the stars and stripes of the American flag. Perfect for the Fourth of July or a day at the pool.
Step 1
Wash and dry shirt as fabric requires, to remove any sizing and to ensure good paint adherence. 
Step 2
Iron a large piece of freezer paper to inside front of shirt. This creates a stable painting surface and prevents paint from bleeding through to back of shirt. 
Step 3
Use tape to mask off a section of shirt for the star area. Use die cutter to cut star shapes out of freezer paper and iron onto shirt in designated areas. Or, if preferred, adhere star stickers to shirt as stencils. 
Step 4
Use freezer paper to cover areas of shirt to be left unpainted. 
Step 5
Use blue ColorShot spray to paint star area of shirt. Let shirt dry. Remove stars and tape. 
Step 6
To finish flag design, use painter’s tape to create stripes on remainder of shirt. Use freezer paper to cover blue painted area of shirt. 
Step 7
Spray stripes with red paint.   
Step 8
Let dry and remove tape and freezer paper. 
 
Tip: Always prewash and dry shirt to remove sizing to ensure good paint adherence.
