I was very impressed with the results- even a little spray glitter for the final layer. These shirts were made much like in the previous post. A printout of the mocking jay symbol and lettering was created then cut out with a exacto knife. It was then taped to the shirt and lightly spray painted over. The paint will hold up in the wash- you might want to wash it with all dark colors the first time around- just to be safe.
Here is a little project for you Hunger Games uber fan– watching the clock all day, with butterflies in their tummies in anticipation of Friday March 23 at 12:01 am (otherwise known as the middle of the night, tonight) when they can- at last- witness the film version and decide if it can do the book version justice.
A few of these were drawn out by hand onto the cardstock, then cut out. The small, precise “I <3 the boy with the bread” was printed up in a large font then the letters were cut out with an exacto knife.
We used spray paint **in a well ventilated area**. Tape the stencil down with loops of tape on the back of the paper, under the letters and around the edge of the paper. Be sure to cover up any parts of the shirt you don’t want painted with extra cardboard or paper.
Use paint markers or regular permanent Sharpies to highlight around the letters or add a heart or two.
