    This is an 18 year old t shirt. It's been worn and washed many times over the years . This is why I love createx for fabric. There's even glitter still in the Lady deatg.jpg Lady death2.jpg

    Thanks for this thread. I was wondering how long it last on fabric. I use wicked, not createx for fabric. I am wondering if that is a mistake...

    I don't know about wicked on fabric I've never used it for fabric . I know that createx is very good for t shirts I have another one of these ancient airbrush t shirts I'll post it when I find it.

    Good stuff! This makes me think I should really get around to trying to put something (anything!) onto a t-shirt again. I tried before, but it didn't stick. I do have better paints now and slightly more of a clue, so I might be more lucky if I had another go.

    You already mentioned pre-washing, but I'm assuming you also heat-set the design once it was dry? Do you remember if you used an iron or a press?

    I did this one in the 80's and its still good but i cant wear it any more, it must have shrunk.

    Did it with badger airbrush paint (could have been airtex) but i dont think you can get it any more, they are OLD. I still have them but its probably not any good. Spectra-tex works ok and washes well.
