Jason and The CUREonauts tee

Alright, this is another craft done with The Cure in mind.  I'm not usually this fanatic, but with all their current SummerCure festivals in play, I have to do something to take my mind off not being able to attend. is my attempt at making a space/galaxy shirt with the text of "Jason and the Cureonauts".

Plain, black, cotton tee (I grabbed mine from the thrift store)
My shirt had a fancy neck, so I taped it up because I did not want bleach or paint on it.

Follow Galaxy Shirt Tutorial
While the galaxy paint job dried, I began making my text stencil. Freezer paper makes a good, cheap stencil and is very good to use when you're making an original.  Freezer paper has two sides, a plastic side and a paper side-draw your text on paper side. 
Once you get all your text cut out, use HOT iron to melt the plastic side of your freezer paper on to t shirt. Use brush to dab fabric paint on to shirt/stencil. I peel stencil off while paint is still wet.  When fully dry, your shirt is complete!

*I plan on hand washing this shirt...not too trusting of all that bleach used early on
