DIY Dr Who Tardis Tshirt

Many will already know that I am a big Dr Who Fan.  I recently painted a Galaxy Scene with a Dr Who Tardis in the background. I used a downloaded template I had found online to help with the painting. I decided as I still had the template I would use it to design a plain white T-shirt I have.

All I needed apart from the template was some blue fabric paint which my mum already had at home and a plain white t-shirt.

I placed some card inside the T-shirt and then placed the template on the top. I used a sponge and dabbed on the fabric paint over the template leaving the dye on the t-shirt. The card inside stops the dye from going through to the back of the T-shirt.  Once dry I ironed the design, following the fabric dye instructions.  Then wash the t-shirt.  I really love my new T-shirt and I am happy that it is a unique design nobody else will have.

First photo below shows the template I used on the painting, this was the same template I used for the T-shirt. There is also the photo of me meeting 2 lovely people dressed up as Dr Who and Amy Pond, I was Princess Merida.

Ceramic Fairy Door

I have been attending a homeschool group ceramics class and making some pieces of artwork. Today I got back my first piece of work a 'Fairy Door'.  I will share my other projects at a later date once I have received them as they take time drying and going in the special kiln.

The first week we used clay to design the door.  Then after it had dried the next week we painted the door. Then it had to go back in the oven again and wait for another week.  The photo below shows me designing the door with clay.

The photo below shows me painting the dried Fairy Door.

It is so different how the finished glazed item turns out from when it is finished painting.  I have really enjoyed doing this class.
