Stencil Painted T-Shirts

My son loves transformers.  I mean he REALLY loves transformers!  Give the kid a new transformer and he will quietly play with it for hours.  It is the only toy he ever asks for.

I was at Walmart the other day and they had solid color T’s marked down to $3.50.  There weren’t many colors left in small, so I picked out red.  I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it at first.  I thought I might let my son do a design with a bleach pen, but I decided against that.  I just don’t trust him with a bleach pen yet…

I finally settled on using a freezer paper stencil and doing a Transformer image similar to the one I used for his birthday cupcake toppers.  (See my tutorial for freezer paper stencils here.)

This is his best muscle pose!

Came out awesome!  He loves it…

I uploaded this Transformer Image to Google docs if anyone else would like to use it.  Here it is up close:

    Your shirt turned out great!!! I have a nephew I might have to make a transformer shirt like this for.

  7. Great job!!! How many times did you have to paint over your lines to get them so dark? The ones I do always turn out to lite. I don't think I am patient enough!!

  8. It turned out awesome! The lines are so clean,it's amazing.

  10. Love it! How long does it take you to cut out a design like that? I always think about doing stencils like this one but then chicken out.
