You Need:

chicsteals_DIYtribalprintshirt_materialsT-shirt  /  piece of cardboard, T-shirt insert, or large cutting board  /  sticky-back foam  /  wood block  /  soft fabric paint (black)  /  pyramid studs  /  tray for the paint  /  ruler or shape tracing plastic  /  pen  /  scissors and craft knife  /  paper towels  /  pliers  /  brush (not pictured)

7. Stamp the t-shirt in an evenly-spaced pattern, dipping the foam block repeatedly to recover with paint. (I found after awhile it was more accurate to spread paint on the stamp with the brush.)chicsteals_DIYtribalprintshirt_step7

8. Once you’re done, wipe the stamp down.

9. Allow to dry flat.
