A stencil and iron-on transfer mix (as it turned out): Gang of Four tee

Done around 2003, this was supposed to be an all Brazilian-like baggy yellow t-shirt with a green Gang of Four stencil on it, inspired by their first few singles corner font line. I was probably also listening to Pigbag doing their Brazil nuts tune at the time.

At first, well, the t-shirt wasn’t that yellow and I didn’t have any fabrics spray paint so I used the first green one I found at home. Stencil didn’t turn out that good, spread quite a bit.

It wasn’t after some time that I thought of printing and using each letter on top of the original stencil which was already a little worn out from washing. Darker green transfer worked great and background now-lighter spray paint looked like a photoshop shadow. Or even better.

A simple idea for combining two different tee techniques, but do be careful when ironing on top of spray paint, use silicon sheets or something like that. This is what it looks like now, completely fainted.
