Rarity Silk Screen Shirt by renegadecow Rarity Silk Screen Shirt by renegadecow
I originally wanted to document all the steps in silk screening a Rarity print but got absent minded and forgot to take pictures of a few. The first two layers was the entire silhouette in eggshell. Next came her mane. I couldn't do a good looking gradient with the textile paint I'm using so had to settle with a solid color. After that the whites of here eyes were printed on and hand painted the eye shadow. The blues of her eyes were also hand painted being small and topped with a print of her iris and eyelash. The basic diamonds of her cutie mark were also printed on but the detail lines were done by hand. Finally I traced her figure in gray by hand as well as the pinstriping on her mane. Heat set with an iron for a couple minutes and done!

She's my favorite most of the time. But I find that as my mood changes so does my favorite pony.

Of course it's washable. Most textile paints are fade-proof when air dried, but it helps to seal it even better when heat set with an iron (however some paints require it). Unlike an iron-on transfer, the paint really gets into the fibers of the shirt and is a bit rubbery so it won't crack as easily.

Thanks! I used silk screen to do the large areas and a medium and fine brush to apply the small details. You could also use silk screen for the details, but I'm using the manually cut green film stencil and not the photo emulsion type so printing small detail is more difficult for me (easier to do by hand). Used regular textile paint.
