Immediately pour Apple Red Jewel Glitter over wet paint. Set aside for about 10 minutes to let paint slightly dry.
  6. Place scratch paper on work surface then carefully pour excess glitter from shirt onto scratch paper. Tap Fashion Form to remove as much as possible – not all will come off. The paint is still wet so be careful not to disturb it. The glitter can reused.
  7. Outline and fill in far-right tree with Leaf Green then add Emerald Green Jewel Glitter. Set aside for about 10 minutes to let paint slightly dry. Repeat step of removing excess glitter.
  8. Outline and fill in middle tree with Diamond Glitter 3D Fashion Paint. Sprinkle in with Pink Jewel Glitter. Set aside for about 10 minutes to let paint slightly dry. Repeat step of removing excess glitter.
  9. Let paint thoroughly dry then use old brush to brush off any more excess glitter.

How beautiful is your t-shirt? I know my daughter would love to wear this around campus during the holidays. She loves personalized items and handcrafted clothing. I bet she will get a lot of comments and questions about the shirt and where she got it when she wears it this year.
