Directions[edit | edit source]
1. Enlarge pattern to desired size. 2. Pre-wash and dry shirt; do not use fabric softener. Insert Fashion Form™ or cardboard covered with foil between layers of shirt. 3. Use a ruler and a grey chalk pencil to draw a line extending from collar toward shoulder, then down the right side of shirt as shown. 4. Use ruler and chalk to mark even spacing for buttons next to line as shown. 5. Cut out pocket pattern and place where desired underneath shirt so pattern shows through. 6. Trace pattern with Black Slick Tulip® 3D Fashion Paint™. Tip: Begin paint flow in the upper left corner and work down to the lower right to avoid smearing the paint with your hand. Trace “lab coat” line with Black Slick. Let dry. 7. Squeeze a pea-sized dot of Silver Metallics onto each button marking then carefully set each button into paint and press lightly into place. Use additional paint to connect the paint that pushes up through the buttonholes to resemble thread. Let dry. 8. Pour a puddle of Platinum Metallic Soft Fabric Paint™ onto a piece of foil. Use paintbrush to create Platinum shading for all details. Refer to photo. Let dry.
