Well i came up with the jersey about a month ago in photoshop and finally found a black long sleeve t-shirt with no logos on last weekend. I am going to start my own team soon so I made a jersey hoping it would help pick up so guys by showing i am serious about the team.

Whole thing took about 4 1/2 hours to paint.

I tried my best to keep the autotimer on the camera going as i was painting but sometimes forgot.


Original plan I made in photoshop:

Very nice job. I tried to get a friend to do that for me... but the white on the black shirt washed off pretty easy... it doesnt show up as nice now.

I have pics... but if I post them it might be considered thread hijacking. How do you make the white show up so well and so that it wont get washed off?

You have to buy the right kind of paint and make sure you heat set it after painting....plus your not suppost to wash the shirt for atleast 4 days after painting.

Wow, pretty cool.

All that done free hand or did you have stencils?

Skulls were all freehand along with most of the lettering, had to make a stencil for 3-4 of the letters due to the extreme fine lines that my airbrush can not produce. I will probably be picking up a new airbrush after christmas that can handle fine detail so i can ditch the stencils all together.

I've always wanted to learn to do airbrushing. I like drawing but I'm not very good at it. I'm better at taking an image from my head and just making it, rather than putting it down on paper first. Not sure how well I'd do at airbrush but it would be fun to try.

Airbrushing takes some pracitice to really get comfortable with it, I totally sucked at it when i first started doing it but then i started reading alot on airbrush message boards and learned alot in a short amount of time. I can draw somethings better then i can airbrush them but then i can airbrush somethings better then I can draw them.

You could make some good money off of airbrushing shirts. Charge $35-40 a jersy, maybe less or more depending on the amount of paint used. Could be profitable.

I know I would pay that much if someone could airbrush this skull I have had for the longest time on a jersey for me. Haha.

I personally wouldn't think it would be paint that would cost the majority of the money. But time, I presume would play a much larger factor.

Anywho, I love the shirt! Looks great!

WOW! im actually looking for some custom shirts for my rifle team. the problem is we dont know how much its gonna cost for customized stuff, because usually the school buys everything in batches. once i get quotes from my coach and/or some companies, and we'll see how $$$ itll be, i might have a business proposition for you.
