Dexter Blood Splatter Slice of Life Shirt

Made for the Movie/TV show swap on, this shirt is inspired by this shirt she pinned from the TV show, Dexter. His boat was called “Slice of Life” which of course was tongue-in-cheek given his serial killer nature. He used his boat to dump dead bodies out into the ocean. And since he was a blood splatter analyst, it only seemed fitting to put some on the shirt as well. 😀


And a close-up:


I made this by cutting out the stencil on freezer paper by hand with an X-acto knife. I ironed the stencil onto the shirt (shiny side down) and then used a pump fabric spray from Tulip to fill in the pattern. After a few coats to get good saturation, I left it overnight to dry. Then I peeled the stencil off and used the pump to “splatter” more paint around the rest of the shirt.

This was only my second ever stencil shirt and I was really pleased with how it came out!
