blue light paint

I love to decorate fabric with stencils and paint, and the huge variety of products available makes it easy to create really unique pieces.  Who wants a store bought shirt when you can make your own?  I used awesome black light paint from Tulip to make apparel that glows!


Project Estimate:

  • T-shirt or bib – $1
  • Stencil – on hand
  • Neon Black Light Paint – $5 for 3 pack

Total: $6

Step one: Place cardboard under the fabric to be painted.

step 2

Step two: Place the stencil over the fabric and tape it in place.

Step three: Use a foam pouncer to dab the paint over the stencil.  For a more dimensional effect (like the shirt), use the writing tip of the paint bottle to trace the stencil with.

Once the paint has dried you’ll have a cool, neon custom item.  The surprise is when you put it in black light! My kids really enjoy going to glo golf and miniature tag, so that’s where we wear stuff like this.  It would be fun to make wrist bands or headbands for all your guests to wear if you have parties at a place with black light.  Craft, create, and stand out from the rest!
