Gel Printing a Playful T-Shirt

Cheap t-shirts can become something fun to wear! Just one gel plate, the Puzzle Piece by Gel Press, was used to cover the entire shirt with pattern. You might think it took planning to get the all the puzzle piece prints to connect into each other. Nope. Because of how the puzzle piece is designed, it is extremely forgiving! No matter how I put it down, I could always fit the next one into it.

You’ll also see how I mixed up the paint so that it became a fabric paint, and most importantly, what I did when I got the curved areas of the shirt, the arms. I cheated to make the pattern work there. You’ll see how in the video!
