- Dark ground non-synthetic fabric (100% cotton works well. Check the tag on your tee).
- Discharge ink, Soft-Scrub with Bleach, or DeColorant
- Design stencil or screen (We used peel n etch: self-adhesive repositionable stencils from the glass etching cupboard...re-usable, cross-media fun designs)
First insert a protective sheet inside the tee shirt, so the color remover won't bleed through to the back. You can use cardboard or plastic. DO NOT use corrugated cardboard because the texture will interfere with the print,
Here's the tee stretched nice and flat on the ironing board with the insert in place.
...Let it dry, then use a hot iron to set it off and cure it.
Be sure to cover the design area with a press cloth for heat setting to protect the iron from the paste, and vice versa. We used a muslin strip, but newsprint works.
...mmm...one potato, two potato, three potato...Peel off the stencil paper...
et Voila! DISCHARGED! Wait a day or two after heat setting to wash, for optimal results.
