What you need:

  • Textile markers in your favourite colours
  • Shirt or another item of clothing
  • Paper/cardboard backing so that the colour does not bleed through to the reverse

Step 1

Slide a paper or cardboard backing between/underneath the fabric so that the paint does not bleed through. Now you can start colouring!

Step 2

Use a range of different colours and get started.Let your imagination run free!

Your one-off is finished! ​

Incidentally: The colours are fixed after 24 hours, but if you can't wait that long, iron over the fabric (not a steam iron).

Tip: To protect your hand-decorated one-off from too much mechanical friction in the washing machine, simply turn the item inside out or use a laundry net. Washing by hand with mild detergent is even gentler.

Have fun with your new favourite shirt!
