Miss Saigon previous project next project textile painting home


This is a birthday present to my former girlfriend's sister. We all visited the musical Miss Saigon™ together, and she wanted one of those merchandising T-shirts. Unfortunately, these are quite expensive (especially for a pupil), so we "reproduced" one for her birthday. Complete with a personal dedication, it's priceless!

I used a simple cardboard stencil for the helicopter and sun. The tiny letters could only be reproduced with an exact stencil made of adhesive plastic foil, that was pasted on the cloth.
