I thought I would try adding my own image to a T-Shirt using a heat transfer paper a Digital Image (this one is by Mo’s Digital Pencil) and Flexmarkers to colour.
I started by printing out the image I wanted to add to my shirt onto a transfer sheet remembering to mirror the image in my print settings to ensure wording would be correct once ironed on the shirt. I then cut around the image.
I placed a thick piece of card under the shirt then added the transfer paper image face down onto the shirt.
My transfer paper has an iron in a green circle printed on the reverse, I placed a sheet of brown paper onto of this and ironed it until the green on the transfer paper had turned brown.
I then carefully peeled off the backing paper and the image was left on my shirt.
So Flexmarkers to the ready i began to colour the image that was fused to the shirt.
Gradually laying colours and going back over when needed to deepen the shades, I didn’t want to over saturate the cloth I was wary of the marker bleeding, this way it didn’t bleed past the lines at all.
Once I'd finished colouring I covered the image again with brown paper and again ironed the image to heat set the colour.
All that is left to do is wear it. Poor lighting on my next picture because it is very difficult holding a camera whilst trying to take your own picture.
