wanted to design a holiday shirt using a differentt technique. I noticed my towels getting stains when Acne medication(Containing 10% Benzoyl Peroxide) was being used so I decided to give it a try! Using a dark brown 100% Cotton T shirt I daubed some Acne gel(I used the inexpensive Equate brand from Walmart) onto an angel stamp, applied to my shirt front,On the back I used my alphabet stamps (same techique)(Photos #1, #2, #3) & let it sit overnite.If you are pressed for time you can leave it in the sun a couple of hours, or dry using blow dryer or craft heat gun (taking care with craft dryer not to burn shirt) The results were amazing, But I wanted more of a "Holiday" color to the shirt so I dyed the shirt ( Photos #4, #5) in Crimson dye to give it a redish tone. This is a fun project for Teens and can be used to decorate Fabrics,Clothing(100% cotton) And its less messy than paints,or bleach!~Enjoy
