    Ok, here's the situation-- I got a few dots of bleach (not enough to cause holes, just white on the shirt) on one of my new James Perse t-shirts. It's a jersey cotton T, light blue, with bright orange stitched seams on the outside of the shirt. so, what can i do? The only idea i've had is to put a large orange "handprint" that will cover the bleach marks, but still allow me to wear this shirt (hopefully, this will still look ok). has anyone painted a t-shirt before? what kind of fabric paint would be good? I've seen several diesel painted shirts, cool fabric paint, but not sure how to go about this. I guess it is the same concept as these jeans: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....92&rd=1

    Go to your local art store.. any good art store will have a selection of textile paints that you can use to put on the shirt. You're going to want a non-water based paint though (if possible), because I think that you might see the bleach-spot underneath if you use a water-based paint. Employees at the art store might know what you'd need as well.
