Paper Press T-Shirt Technique

Looking for a look for Valentine's day?  Or any day for that matter!  Here's a cute look from Pattiewack showing you how to use Scribbles Dimensional Fabric Paint or "Puffy Paint" as a lot of you may affectionately refer to it as. You don't have to have drawing skills to do this project, just know a little cursive writing.  Let's show you how to make it!
What you need:
Scribbles 3D Fabric Paint in Glittering Silver, Pink Surprise and Wild Raspberry
– Pink T-shirt
– Freezer paper
– Chalk pencil (optional)

Before you begin:  You'll want to wash your tee (without fabric softener) and dry. Now place a sheet of freezer paper inside the layers of the shirt to keep paint from seeping through to the back of shirt.
Write the word “Lovely” with Wild Raspberry on the front of your shirt.  If you are unsure of your freehand writing skills, draw the word on using a chalk pencil, so it will give you a guide to go by.
Go over the word again using Glittering Silver leaving a little space between the colors.
Trace again with Pink Surprise.
Carefully lay paper side of another piece of freezer paper over the wet paint.

Lightly press paper into the paint with your fingertips, being careful not to flatten completely.
  Carefully peel off freezer paper from the shirt and throw away. Let dry.
This is a really quick project to make. For that reason, it was a design chosen to appear in store displays.  This is our design studio setup during the process of mass production.  We actually did 36 of this one shirt. Cool, huh?  It's all in a day's work!


  1. Great Idea!!! Will have to give it a try

  5. I went through a long and arduous process on your website ordering over $100 of your puffy paint. After going through the check out, giving all my private details including my personal phone number, I clicked what country I needed it to be sent to, continued with my address etc, then at the very last minute I was informed you do not ship to Australia even though Australia was one of the many countries listed. I was to say the least devastated as I cannot get hold of this paint here in Australia in the colours you have. I don't think it's fair to allow people to go that far through the check out process and then tell them AFTER they have given their personal details that you cannot ship overseas. Then, to add insult to injury, I am sent a newsletter asking for feedback, when I got to give feedback, I am told there are no feedback surveys at this time. Seriously? If I treated my customers like that I'd be out of business in the morning.

  6. Here is my email address, you might as well have it, you have all my other details under false pretenses including my private number. You may see that I have TRIED to order from your site which stated it DOES ship overseas, but clearly not tonight.
