So this is what I started out with: two t-shirts, a newspaper, painters tape, and a cardboard box. I decided to only do one shirt last night in case things didn't turn out well. Then I could try again today and fix whatever I did wrong.
Sorry the picture is so blurry, I didn't realize it was until today. This is my shirt all taped up and with the cardboard inside it. I put my lines 1 1/4 inches apart. I just guessed for the most part on the lines and eye balled it. The main thing I tried to do when taping the lines was not let the shirt fold over any and have creases under the tape. I didn't go all the way to the top of the shirt so I used the newspaper to cover up what I didn't want spray painted.
This is what it looks like last night before I pulled the tape off. Let me just say that first I ran out of the black spray paint I was using and I had only done half of the shirt. This was not okay so as I rummaged through my paint supply I found a can of black spray paint that had primer with it, I'm not sure if that matters or not but I used it anyway. I didn't want to just stop this project half way so I used it.
This is what it looked like when it was dry and I pulled the tape off. Its not that bad but its not that good either. I think it will work better with another color, black is just so harsh against white it shows every single imperfection. So I will try again this afternoon and hope that it turns out better. I think it would also work better if I spray painted it straight across the shirt from left to right and not up and down. Last night I just tried to get it covered so it was a mixture of both.
Here is a close up of the lines, some of them aren't to bad. I will defintely be trying something different with the next shirt and hopefully that one turns out much better. Now this one might be turned into a tank top or something, there will be more to come on this shirt.
Do you have any suggestions/tips for how to spray paint this?
