Step 1

Print out the dragon template in the desired size. Make it a little bigger than your stain and then cut it to size.

Step 2

Place the cardboard together with the dragon template between the front and back of your T-shirt.


Step 3

Use the black textile marker to trace the contours that can be seen through the T-shirt (depending on the thickness of the fabric). Let it dry before using more colours. Then paint the dragon spots yellow and fill the dragon’s body with green.


Step 4

To fix the colour, you can iron the shirt (without steam). Alternatively, you can simply let the paint dry for 24 hours.



Make your T-shirt as unique as you are!

Tip

The higher the natural fibre content of the fabric, the higher you can set the washing temperature (40° to 60°C).


If possible, wash newly purchased fabrics in advance so that the textile marker ink can penetrate deep into the fibres. It is best to use a delicates cycle and mild detergent when washing so you can enjoy your unique item for as long as possible. This is because colour brilliance depends not only on the texture of the fabric, but also on the temperature and the particular laundry detergent.
