Hello!  It’s Samantha from Revamp, Amor!  I’m happy to stop by All Things Britney Lee & share a super simple DIY t-shirt.  I LOVE a fabulous graphic t-shirt.  They offer comfort & style all in one simple, easy to care for piece.   With this in mind, I set out to make an oversized, uni-sex tee look fabulous & stylish.  The final result: a gold-foiled, geometric t-shirt that pairs perfectly with leggings & flats but also with patent leather heels.

MATERIALS

giant t-shirt
gel medium (available at any arts supply store)
gold foil
iron

HOW TO

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

1.  Pre wash your shirt!  Place your shirt out flat & decide what design you would like.  I chose a triangle, but you could do a stripe, dots or even a word.  Draw on your shape with a thin sharpie in a neutral color.  *Use a ruler for a straight edge.

2. Using your finger or a sponge brush apply the gel medium to the lines you marked.  You don’t want it to be too thick!

3.  GENTLY press the gold leafing into the gel medium.

4. Let dry overnight.  Press the design with a pressing cloth between the shirt and the iron.  Gently rub away the excess foil.

That’s it!  Go be fabulously comfortable!

I wore my shirt to dinner last night & felt uber cool!

  2. Hia….how DID I miss this post?! Love the technique and my son is a HUGE fan of the Baymax film (can’t remember what it’s called in English), so I’m definitely going to be making him one of the Baymax tees…..so cool! Does the paint stay on when it’s washed? …trying to leave a comment on Revamp, Amor but can’t 😦 …….LOVED both techniques….thanks so much!!!

      Hold up. Just maybe get a little faded, more vintage-y
