  • Dark permanent marker that you want to use for the word “love”

Step 3 Cut a paper 7” x 7”

Step 4 Sketch out the word “love” on the piece of paper. The word should go from one end of the paper to the other in order to be big enough to look good on the tank.

Step 5 Put the paper on the tank to make sure it is a good fit and will look like you want it to.

Step 6 Trace your design in black permanent marker.

Step 7 Put this under the front of the shirt. Make sure it is centered and positioned how you think it looks good. (It could be straight accoross, at a diagonal, etc.)

Step 8 Use the dark permanent marker to trace over the word “love” on top of the tank top.

TIP: Go slowly in small lines so that you do not snag or drag the fabric with the marker.

Step 9 Put a little paint on the palette and again, carefully and slowly, paint over the marker to make the word “love”. Use a dry brush and a light hand so that it looks like paint brush lettering with light and dark streaks that naturally occur while painting.

Step 10 Add a free-hand drawn heart under the word “love” and a little off center to the right side. Let the paint on the tank top dry completely.
