Hands can make for some cool designs, especially when painted on a T-shirt. You can paint hand prints on T-shirts by simply recalling the days of finger paints and remember your willingness to get a little messy. By using your hands, fabric paint you can create your own unique shirt. Here’s how.
Things You'll Need
- Fabric paint
Wash and dry the T-shirt to ensure it will not shrink once painted and ruin your artwork.
Stretch the T-shirt flat by pulling it over a board so the fabric is taut.
Place a moderate amount of fabric paint on a plate you don’t care about.
Firmly press your hand in the paint and practice a few prints on paper before applying to the shirt.
Stamp your hand print on the T-shirt, leaving it in place for several seconds and pressing down firm on every finger and the edges of your palm.
Remove hand, press firmly again in paint and repeat for however many handprints you wish.
Since your paint is going to be thick, allow to dry thoroughly before wearing. Some paints require you heat set them prior to washing and wearing, so check the paint's label.
