Bird tee

Coppersmith barbet on a tee shirt. Model: Anant. Fabric paints on cloth by Namitha.


  1. Wow - thats a really cute tee. anant must be so proud of it :)

  2. Hiya, yeah he did like it a lot and wore it all day and was very annoyed when I took it away for washing before he wore it the next time ! He has already placed an order for a pied hornbill on a white t-shirt. I did not have much confidence in my painting skills so I chose a dark colour this time. Unbelievable how easy it was do the outline in white -- use a really thin and short bristled brush and it works almost like a pen. And of course the t-shirt must be slightly thicker, softer and with fewer pores or whatever they are called.


Thanks for stopping by. I'd be happy to see your comments and suggestions. If there are any queries, please post them and I will get back to you ASAP.
