i wouldn't do it if you want something to last...i think spray paint will run. there is fabric spray paint you can get that i and my roommate have used and it seems to work ok...but i think it might have run in the wash, BUT i don't think we set it (i think it's iron set?).

here is a handy website!

i used spray paint to stencil onto my tees and survived the wash at 40 degrees, and the tumble dryer although i didnt mean to do it

but it was spray paint used for touching up your car so it might have more staying power than regular spray paint.

just dont spray it too think or it will crack!

I'm going to mess with the buttons on a stuffy, boring grey silk suit... I'm going to glue these awesome pins- cro-magnan man skulls, over top of the buttons! I think it will liven it up a little while still maintaining the conservative effect of the suit.

this is one of my first customizations...
i bought a few shirts at the thrift store and cut them up. i cut a hole inthe black one and left a few dangling strings for later use... then i sewed another piece of black material behind to cover the hole..
the white piece is tied in using the dangling strings from before.. not sewn. and there are some safety pins i painted black and put through it for a more industrial look.

i was getting bored with the plain white tank. the flowers and leaves were cut from an old old old bed sheet, which had been stayed in the draw for over 10 years, and sew them on!
but they only stayed in the desired shape for a week..... after one careful wash, they seemed to lost the "freshness"

^ I think they look better scrunched up like that. Adds texture! Really cool shirt btw.
