Instructions:

1. Prewash and dry T-shirt to remove sizing; do not use fabric softener. Iron smooth.

2. Prepare work area by placing plastic tablecloth over table.

3. Insert plastic trash bag between layers of T-shirt to prevent dye from seeping through to back side. Place on table.

4. Wearing gloves from dye boxes, prepare Orange and Yellow dye as directed.  Pour about a quarter of Yellow dye from bottle into plastic or foam bowl.

5. Using paintbrush, paint several abstract yellow strokes on center of shirt in the shape of daffodil petals, covering an area of shirt approximately 3½” - 4” wide. Refer to photo for placement. Leave a small round section in center of petals without dye. Repeat process to create a second daffodil next to the first.

6. Return remaining dye to bottle, rinse bowl and pour a lesser amount of Orange into bowl.

7. Using a cleaned paintbrush, dab a small amount of Orange onto centers of flowers. Let dye set for 6 to 8 hours or longer for most intense colors.

8. Remove plastic trash bag from in between layers of shirt and rinse shirt thoroughly under warm running water until runoff is clear. Wash in hottest water suitable for T-shirt fabric and a small amount of laundry soap. Dry separately.

9. Place cardboard in between layers of shirt.

10. Trace pattern onto tracing paper. Trace over lines on the reverse side of tracing with a chalk pencil.

11. Turn pattern right side up and position chalk side down on the dyed flower areas. Note: The dyed areas will not fit exactly within the pattern. Press hands over tracing paper to transfer design in chalk onto T-shirt.

12. Shake bottles of paint well and test on paper towel to get a feel for bottle and flow of paint.

13. Begin with the Orange in the center of daffodils. Follow with the Yellow around the petals, then the detail within the petals.

14. Create a green line for the stems. Let dry completely.

15. Position crystals randomly around daffodils. Tip: For ease in picking up crystals, use tip of color crayon to pick up and position on shirt; the wax from crayon will hold crystal just long enough to place where desired.

16. Set crystals in place using Cordless Heat-Setting Tool, following instructions on package.

17. Remove cardboard.
