At the Barça Foundation we have designed some activities for children to enjoy at home whilst learning key skills such as effort and determination!
TIME: Between 15 and 30 minutes
Do you like fashion? Do you want to be a fashion designer when you grow up?
WHAT DO YOU NEED?
A white T-shirt
A pencil sharpener
Lay your t-shirt flat and place the newspaper inside to separate the front and the back. This will prevent the colors from going through to the back.
Sharpen the colored pencils over the T-shirt. Spread the shavings over all the areas that you want color on the T-shirt.
We recommend that you keep changing colors and combining them as you like.
When you have spread all the shavings on the T-shirt the way you like, take the parchment paper and cover the T-shirt with it.
Now is the time to ask your parents for help. They need to turn the iron on,, and when it is really hot, place it on the parchment paper for a few seconds. The heat will melt the colored shavings and they will stick to the T-shirt.
If you liked the result and you want to become a real expert on this technique, we recommend you make a template of your favorite drawing on paper.
Then you can fill the template with colored pencil shavings, and this way you will be able to decorate the T-shirt with the designs you like best!
