    use deco colours for the fill and an extra fine tip sharpie for the outline. You also gotta move the markers quickley because the paint tends to bleed.

    Dollard store paint on a dollard store hat
    cheap and nice colors
    you can use the paint to refill paint markers ( the acrylic base one of course )

    Depending on the fabric, if you`re having a problem with bleeding or covering, just lay down a base of white out or whatever you call that shit. That white fluid crap. Then go over it, strictly with paint markers and clear coat gives it some more shine. When you use felt tip water based shit, it gets soaking into the fabric and comes out lookin geto.

    I don`t usually deal with t-shirts being that they piss me off, all I know is that if you lay a lot of paint or white out down, you shit will become crusty and crack and flake. might be better to use some sort of method with felt. i`ve seen nice shit done with paint markers as well tho, i just don`t have the patience.
