Painted Baby Tee Kurtas

On The Set Of Creative Juice

Get your paint on with this fun and easy traditional Indian design, these Kurta-style tees use dimensional fabric paint to add a little pop to your kids’ wardrobe.  Mix and match colors, use bright and metallic paint for extra flair.

Light colored baby T-shirt (your choice of color)
Lumiere Metallic Acrylic Fabric paint
Fabric ball and brush pens
Dimensional fabric paint by FolkArt
Pencil with an eraser
Wax paper

1. Pre wash and dry the t-shirt to remove any sizing. Place a piece of waxed paper in between the front and back of the t-shirt to prevent the paint from bleeding through.

2. Begin by painting large polkadots according to your design by dipping the eraser end of a pencil into fabric paint and dab it onto the t-shirt. Allow it to dry for 24 hours, then heat set using an iron.

3. Next, Paint any lines using the ball and brush pen, allow to dry, no heat setting necessary.

4. Finally add dimensional highlights with the dimensional paint. Allow to dry.
