Default Very weird question-don't mock me :P

Can I and how could I do this:

Use airbrush for making a picture on a t-shirt and then press it with a heat press so color stays inside the t-shirt.

I'm not interested about airbrush, how you draw stuff. I am interested what color you put inside if any and if you can heat press it on t-shirt.

So little brainstorming. Is it possible and how could I do that?

I am wishing airbrush for a decade. I got money for it. For the whole setup. But could I use it on t-shirts as well? And how would you guys do this if you would experiment with this?

Thanks for ideas,brainstorming,your time and so on.

If anybody is thinking this would take to much time for making a t-shirt, I was thinking that time goes for preparation. You need to cut out text or something from paper with vinyl cutter, and then air brush color on to the t-shirt. After that apply heat pressure treatment.

This was just my brainstorming, so like a title of thread says: Don't mock me:P I am just thinking about stuff.

So guys need your help for some brainstorming. Any weird though is most welcomed in this topic.

for the ones who don't know what airbrush is:

off course: more money better airbrush

I found few old topics, but why they don't use plastisol colors? -.-

Hmmm, That's an interesting thought.
There are fabric paints, but they are usually used with a brush and just allowed to dry, I wouldn't know how long they hold up though. That could depend on the wash procedure, as a small example, my daughter painted a mug for my partners birthday using a kit 20 years ago, and that is still as good as new because it hasn't been in a dishwasher. and it is used at least twice a week.
Dye sub ink would probably work but that'll be on white as I dont think there is a white dye sub.
Plastisol would be far too viscous to go through an airbrush.
Good luck with your experiments seacookie, and keep us posted with your results please.

Can I make Plastisol less viscous and have the same results after plastisol color is dry?

An idea might be to airbrush a design on a piece of paper, then take a good clear photo of it in bright light. Now you'll have it in digital form and you can make it into plastisol or digital transfers; as many as you please. An added benefit is you can get the painting exactly the way you want before putting it on any shirts.

I was thinking more in the line, let me give you one stupid google example:

https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/12...g?v=1468460869

If I would make a stencil of for example this design, then I would only need to spray once and heat press. No need to weed or have problems with transfers.

This is just a thought. And it would be faster, cause you just spray over it.

I was thinking if plastisol is to thick for airbursh, then this could be done "maybe" with a gun which is used for painting cars.

But can you make Plastisol viscosity reduced? And the next question would be, would it be cheaper to spray t-shirt then heat transfer or vinyl them?

But for that design why not just screen print it, or for smaller quantities use vinyl transfers? Airbrushing would be way more work and result in crappier quality. You can build a one color screen press for less than $50 and I have plans that I'd be glad to forward to anyone who PM's me.

I would like to have one color press, but i was reading a little about that and looked to me like I need bunch of stuff. Like dark room, something for heat and so on?

I don't have much room right now. I'm moving to house next summer...

You don't need a dark room, just a dim room with no sunlight. And there are plenty of inks that air dry. If you want to print with plastisol, your heat source can be as simple as a $20 Home Depot heat gun

I wrote an e-book that teaches beginners how to screen print starting from scratch and includes plans for a one color press. PM me your email address and I'll forward it to you.

Sure I will. I am still experimenting with all of this stuff with t-shirts.
But I must admit, Ripcord e-book is amazing. This is bullet proof guide for noobs like me.

Damn, when I went to check screen printing forum I almost throw up when I start reading all information. But with Ripcord book I enjoy reading about screen printing. Now he made me interested in multicolor screen printing...

I was amazed how he explained stuff. Like he would position himself in to noobs perspective. Thumbs up Ripcord.
Ripcord and into the T like this.
