DIRECTIONS:

  2. Position and press Tulip Stars Stencil on upper right section of T-shirt.
  3. Cut 6" square of parchment or craft paper. Place inside shirt under stencil to prevent Resist from bleeding through. Use a small brush to apply Tulip Fashion Art Resist to stencil. Select size and number of stars. Dry Resist with a heat tool.
  4. Refer to PDF/photo. Using a ruler and a water soluble marking pen, draw a vertical line on shirt, dividing it into 1/3 and 2/3 sections.

PREPARING RIT DYE:

  2. Brush on Fuchsia with horizontal brush strokes in middle third of shirt, overlapping Golden Yellow 1"-2".
  3. Brush on Teal with horizontal brush strokes in bottom third of shirt, overlapping Fuchsia 1"-2".
  4. Place a long piece of parchment or craft paper over white side of shirt along vertical line. Fold dye-painted section of shirt over paper. Brush dye on back side of shirt as above until saturated. Use paper towels to wipe excess dye from plastic. Fold shirt back on plastic wrap. Remove paper.
  5. Brush Navy on remaining two-thirds of shirt using long vertical strokes and lightly over star stencil design.
  6. Place long piece of parchment or craft paper over one-third of shirt dye-painted with three colors. Fold Navy section of shirt over paper and brush Navy on back of shirt. Use paper towels to wipe excess dye from plastic. Fold shirt back on plastic wrap. Remove paper.
  7. Cover shirt with plastic wrap. Seal top and under edges of plastic wrap. Fold to fit into microwave. Cover bottom of microwave with paper towels.
