Title T-Shirt, Multi-Colored Puffy Paint
Object Name T-Shirt
Description The shirt is a 100% cotton white t-shirt with a colorful design on the front. The design uses blue, green, purple, pink, and yellow puffy paints on a design of the same colors along with both gold and silver or clear glitter. The colors do not form any definite image, instead the colors appear as splotches or splatters with puffy paint of the same color over top. The puffy paint has been used in a variety of ways, sometimes creating swirls, other times zig zags or long lines, and sometimes small splotches. Glitter was applied liberally, with the clear glitter used only on the puffy paint and the gold glitter only used off of it.
