Other Supplies

Silk screen fabric, Embroidery hoop, Paintbrush, Rainbow template, Iron, Tee shirt

Instructions

  1. Making the screens: Place a piece of silk screen fabric into an embroidery hoop. Pull tight. Place the rainbow template under a clear Mod Podge craft mat. Place the screen over the template. Paint Mod Podge everywhere you don’t want to have paint. Allow to dry and paint a second coat. Make a rainbow and a cloud silk screen.
  2. Place the silkscreen down on a washed tee shirt. Dip a Spouncer into the Crimson paint and paint the top portion of the rainbow. Move the brush in a sweeping motion. Continue with the Blood Orange and Gold paints. Life the screen and allow to dry.
  3. Place the cloud silk screen down on the end of the rainbow. Pour a small amount of Aqua on the screen just above the cloud. Pull the paint over the cloud using the squeegee tool. Using a Spouncer, add a top-coat of white paint to create a distressed look.
  4. Air dry for 24 hours and heat set with an iron.

PROJECT TIP: Add a touch of sparkle by gluing gems to your design.
