ArtrageousWearables' Shop Announcement

Welcome to our shop, sit back, relax and grab a cup of tea....check out our new Totoro shirts. I made the first Totoro shirt for my daughter, and well I just could not resist creating a few more....I gotta stop...it is addictive. New items appear weekly so keep checking by.

I thought that I would explain a little more about discharging because from questions I can tell there is a lot of confusion. The process of discharging involves taking out color. So I start with mostly black t-shirts and I take out some of the color before I go back and redye the t-shirt with procion dyes. It is not a silk screen process where once I make the screen I can just keep printing the same design over and over. It is really a one at a time t-shirt process. I start by drawing my idea or design onto freezer paper, next I cut out all of the parts and pieces and iron them onto the black t-shirt. The parts that are black when you see a t-shirt posted are where the freezer paper protected the t-shirt from the discharge process. After discharging the t-shirt which is done in a variety of ways, I peel off the freezer paper, and through it away. The process ruins the freezer paper so each time I make even the same idea I have to start from the beginning. Anyway after I peel off the freezer paper, I then wash the t-shirt. Now I am ready to add some color back into the shirt. After the dyed part cures for 24 plus hours I am ready to wash the t-shirt a couple of times to take out the excess dyes. Now I am ready to post it for your viewing pleasure. So as you can see there are a lot of steps, which are all done with lots of love and care. ;o)

This next message is to all of you lovely ladies that drop by and take a look at the woman's t-shirts. I find that different brands of woman's shirts really do vary quite a bit, so check out the measurements in each listing and then compare your with favorite shirt. Do not limit yourself to just looking for your usual size, you may be surprised.
Finally I do special orders if you need a particular size and I can usually come pretty close or I can change up the colors. So please contact me if you need something special. Hope this helps.
