Neon Transformation for a colourful DIY Unicorn T-shirt :
My daughter loves Nella the Princess knight cartoon show and she was extremely disappointed when her ignorant mommy (which is me) bought her a t shirt with a white unicorn ( who chooses a white unicorn! – well me :P).
So she gave me a lecture on what a unicorn is – has golden horn, has rainbow hair, rainbow tail and pops out of a rainbow and I was like why does she have to believe in a non-existent rainbow colored unicorn! But then Fevicryl 3D neon liners came to my rescue and I can’t explain the transformation! From bland to pop-new! Here is how we did the DIY Unicorn Neon transformation :
Before you start with any work on fabric, make sure its washed once and ironed well. Start by securing it on a flat surface – maybe clip it to a cardboard/table. Since mine was a t-shirt, I popped a big cardboard box inside to get the fabric straight.
The 3D neon liners comes with a great cap that is designed such that you can keep the liners upside down, that way allowing the paint inside to settle towards the nib area. I recommend that you store it upside down for a while before you start the work else, sometimes the air bubbles trapped in pops out, spoiling the outline you were making. I also recommend that you practice a few stokes on a surface to acquaint yourself with the flow of paint and pressure required for your strokes.
The work I had in mind was to make the white unicorn colourful and I decided I would draw outlines of colourful hair. I wanted to use all four shades and so I paired the shades in alternate dark and light order to bring out the contrast in them. Depending on your project and design, you can decide on whether to choose dots or lines with the 3D neon liners.
You need to give time for the liners to dry completely and as a general thumb rule for all things that dry slow, leave it over night . This is how the t-shirt looked after the neon transformation – isn’t it vibrant and cheerful?
