Are you looking for a fun summer project for the kids? We have a fun one here where they can help.
We decided to bring a few extra helpers in to help make sun TShirts.
Here is what you will need to get started:
TShirts - We purchased ours at Hobby Lobby
Bleach - Any grocery store
Alcohol Ink - We used Tim Holtz Brand and diluted it a bit with rubbing alcohol so it wasn't as thick and dark.
To start out we chose our images from the Cricut Indie Art Image Set #M428A7 and #M3FE48 and cut some out of Oracal 631 which is a removable vinyl and Oramask 813 which is a stencil vinyl. For cut settings click on this link - Material Cut Settings
The boys each placed Transfer Tape on their images. We used Paper but you can use any type that you would like.
Once you have placed the image on the shirt you are ready to add the bleach or ink. Out of precaution we had them use gloves and we inserted cardboard in our shirts so that it wouldn't leak through to the other side. Using small spray bottles we spayed each of the shirts with the dye or bleach until we had the desired result.
Let them dry completely and then remove the vinyl. They are that easy.
If you choose to "set" the bleach or ink in you can apply a bit of heat to it. After that you are good to go.
Isn't this a fun summertime activity! Grab some vinyl and get started!
