*EDIT*
THIS IS IMPORTANT :stare:
SIMPLY SPRAY FABRIC PAINT IS A LIE!! ALL LIES! I WASH THE HOODIE AFTER 3 @#$@% MONTHS OF DRYING AND THE BLACK IS NOW A GRAY!! UNACCEPTABLE :iconisayplz:!!
:iconatomicrageplz: FFFTTTTTT i can fix it in my pictures in photoshop but it won't be the same :iconforeveraloneplz:
:iconmiradafijaplz: i need better fabric paint to fix it apparently

SO THIS TUTORIAL IS NOW VOID
*END EDIT*


Part one of my tutorial showing the process of how I painted a white hoodie to look like Mr. Snippy's jacket from the webcomic Romantically Apocalyptic by `alexiuss

I just knew after making it and posting pictures everyone would ask where I got it or how i made it xD.

Part two

FAQ's:

Q: Does simply spray really not fade like they say?
A: OF COURSE IT DOES FADE, the spray fabric paint never
works, and i'm an idiot for using it xD

Q: SO WAIT WHAT HAPPENED??
A: After a 3 months of drying and setting, i washed the
hoodie once and the black changed to a gray :|
don't use simply spray is all i can say... still don't know what
to use to fix it yet...

Q: Where can I find your pattern for the hoodie?
A: Here! [link] :)

Q: Can I use this tutorial? I want to use it to help me cosplay Snippy!
A: Sure! that's what it is here for xD just do not re-post this tutorial anywhere else
without my permission please.

Q: Where can I get simply spray?
A: Well here is their webpage [link]
and the have a list of retailers where they sell their paints here [link] It seems
that they only list where you can get it in the U.S.

Q: How much is simply spray?
A: :| [link]

Q: How many cans did you use?
A: 6

Q: I'm confused/nervous about how to use this paint! ;-;
A: watch one of their videos of how to paint with simply spray :) [link]
and they have some general tips on their webpage [link]

Q: Can I use spray paint instead?
A: UHhhhh, I wouldn't suggest spray paint at all, it dries kinda stiff and
smells really bad unlike simply spray which dries soft and doesn't have a smell! :D

Q: Where did you get the hoodie? Did you make that to?
A: No I didn't make it xD, I got it at sears, it was only $20, but you can buy a
similar hoodie pretty much anywhere! and perhaps for cheaper!

Q: Did you ever use that white masking tape?
A: No I didn't, the blue tape was much better cause it was thicker, I'm pretty
sure you could use the white kind if you don't have painters tape.

Q: Who is Mr. Snippy?/ Where can I find this webcomic?
A: `alexiuss First episode: [link]


have another question? leave a comment! :)
and I'd love to see what people make after reading this tutorial!

MOST EXCELLENT!
I wish you the best of luck!

If you are good at sewing and making sewing patterns I do highly suggest doing that as oppose to painting.

Just a thought, my art teacher constantly mentioned to us to be careful with acrylic because if we get it on your clothes it won't come off. Do you think it'd be a good idea to try black acrylic paint?

Well, acrylic is essentially a plastic, therefore unless you paint it with watered down acrylic, whatever you paint on the fabric would be hard and plastic-y. I'd try that on a scrap piece of fabric first to see what the results are like. :)

Alrighty, I'll give it a shot and see if it works. :> I forgot how acrylic dries *bonks self on head* I can remember it's plastic based, but not how that affects it once it dries.

Good luck! and hey! let me know how it turned out :)

And that's okay, I had thought of using acrylics as well before hand xD

hmm, instead of simply spray, what if you poured liquid black clothes dye into a spray bottle? Would that possibly work?

I have no idea, It might. you could test it on some scrap fabric first.
I know that the type of fabric paint that you can paint on the fabric with a brush will be more permanent that simply spray.
Some good quality paints at DickBlick's website

okay so i tested the dye, but it wasn't very effective. I ended up going with "Tulip" fabric paint, which seemed fine after one wash and worked pretty well. :P
