Progress Shot of Hand Cut Stencil

DIY T-Shirt Designing and Printing

Sometimes I make shirts. I started about a year ago when I decided getting my own art printed was kind of expensive. I also really like the results I'm getting. Now with access to a laser cutter its even less time consuming. I did, however, start by cutting the stencils by hand. I mix acrylic paint with a glycerin based medium to make my own fabric printing ink, and use a brush to apply it to the stencil. The stencil is held in place by hair spray.
