Thanks to a lazy EBAY seller, my husband now has ART!
SO WHAT DID THE GUY SEND ME? Great question.
AN EXTRA LARGE!
WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH AN EXTRA LARGE when my husband is a
Then the light bulb moment!
I have GESSO and a CANVAS, I have GLUE, I have SHIMMERZ, I have some cool Tim Holtz metal pieces, and I have UTEE.
So I cut the t-shirt, stapled it to the back of a Dollar Store canvas and went at it. First, GESSO paint. I painted only where I wanted to cover the grey and add text. I found some t-shirt transfer paper at Walmart for Ink Jet printers. PERFECT! I found this Dr. Who quote on-line from the trailer of the first season (new version) and ironed it right onto the t-shirt, so that it looks infused on there. Then I went CRAZY with Shimmerz spritz' (Eucalyptus and Licorice). Then came the metal and coats of Ranger's multi-medium gloss to help everything stick!
As you can see from the t-shirt, the phone booth had no color, so I used acrylic paint to add color here and there. Then I coated the tardis (phone booth) with Versamark ink and UTEE and melted 3 coats on there so the box would appear shiny. I also colored the top light with a COPIC marker.
Here is the NOT SO ATTRACTIVE back, all stapled. :)
So take heart people! If you have an un-loved t-shirt, go ahead and alter it on canvas!
