You can see my tutorial for a stenciling
technique on her blog RIGHT HERE!
Without further ado, here is Samantha’s tutorial for you!
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.
gel medium (available at any arts supply store)
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!
Thanks for reading & hop over to Revamp, Amor to see more DIYs.
I hope you enjoyed her tutorial! I know I sure did, and I CANNOT WAIT to use this foiling technique on one of my plain t-shirts!!
