Show your little hoops fans this cool printing technique, and you're sure to score points.
Protect a flat work area with a cloth or papers. Slide poster board or cardboard inside the shirt and tape it to your surface.
Let a little air out of the basketball. Find the spot on the ball with the most intersecting lines and use a sponge brush to apply a light, even circle of paint about 6 inches in diameter. Do a test print on paper or a spare shirt to perfect your technique.
When you're ready, press the ball onto the shirt. Repaint the ball for each print. (Tip: If necessary, between prints, trace over the black lines on the ball with a pencil eraser to remove excess paint and get a clearer print.) When you're done, use soap and water to wash off the ball before the paint dries on.
