Somebody little came home from preschool today, proudly toting her new painted t-shirt project. I didn't make a fuss over the splotch of red paint that made it to the back of her sleeve (on the clothes she was wearing under the smock, not the project!). I thought I'd tackle the green speckle on her forehead first and take it from there. Well, I haven't had much luck with her forehead yet, so I'm beginning to wonder about the sleeve. I haven't started the ritual of solvent experimentation yet. Is it possible to get fabric paint off of fabric?? It's a plain white cotton knit long sleeed t-shirt.

Pretty Hard, Andrea - what colour is the shirt? Can you use colour remover? Whatever, don't iron or heat it until the paint is gone.

Yikes - I can't find the address of the one that I just phoned yesterday. The owner is great on answering questions. I will post it as soon as I can search and find it again.
Good luck. You better post your results as I am sure other budding fabric painters will need the advice. I can't believe a teacher would use such permanent paints when there are some that are only permanent when heated.
