  • Red Tee shirt
  • Cardboard
  • Towel or cloth

  1. Pre-wash tee shirt and dry.
  2. Lay tee shirt down on a flat surface. Use the masking tape to mask off a square in the center of the tee shirt. Press down on the tape to make sure there are no gaps around the edges.
  3. Place card board in between the tee shirt to separate the front from the back. This will help keep the paint from absorbing through the back.
  4. Mix acrylic paint with textile medium. A two to one ratio. Paint the masked area on the tee shirt. Allow it to dry for an hour. Then paint it again. You will be painting at least three coats.
  5. Allow the painted tee shirt to dry for 24 to 48 hours. The thicker the coating, the longer it will take to completely dry. Heat set the area according to the instructions on the textile medium bottle. 
  6. To avoid any ghost images you have to season the chalkboard area. Season it by covering the whole area white with the Bistro marker jumbo. This will fill in any porous areas. Allow the ink to dry. Then take a damp cloth and wipe it off. Now your chalkboard is seasoned.
  7. Apply white chalk ink to the Christmas bulb stamp. Make several stamped images on the top and bottom of the chalkboard. Connect the images with a squiggly line. Allow this to dry for 15 minutes.
