Streaks n Strokes – DIY Painting Kits


Those who aren’t artistically inclined may find it intimidating to delve headfirst into painting, and that’s where these DIY Painting Kits courtesy of Streaks n Strokes come into play. Containing all the materials needed so you don’t have to scavenge across different crafts stores, these beginner-friendly kits priced from $19.90 can be delivered straight to your home.

Besides exercising your creativity and engaging in a therapeutic time-killer, you’ll also emerge with a 100% unique t-shirt, tote bag or sneakers. Some of us from The Smart Local tried our hand at customising our own tees, and here’s how it went:

If you’re often finding ways to channel your personality through what you wear, stop sifting through run-of-the-mill clothing shops and customise your own t-shirt (from $49.90) instead.

You can also dip your toes (or rather, your paintbrush) into the wonderful world of painting and customisation through a Trial Painting Kit ($19.90)

The affordably priced set comes with a tote bag, paintbrush, 15ml of fabric paint, and a limited edition sticker stencil. This enables even complete beginners to create a sleek design, and likely become hooked on painting!

Each DIY painting kit comes with a Fabric Magic Pen which allows you to trace your design and kickstart the overall masterpiece. You won’t be thrown into the deep end with nothing but materials, as Streaks n Strokes is home to an abundance of free fabric painting online classes, complete with colour mixing charts and design guides for you to download.

Fret not about making mistakes when tracing or sketching, as the Fabric Magic Pen’s ink will come off after being ironed, or fade by itself if left for a few days.

When your outline is good to go, grab a brush and start mixing your fabric paint. On top of the given colours within each DIY kit, you can also follow the Streaks n Strokes Instagram page for colour mixing tips. That way you’ll be able to unlock precise shades and tones, adding more depth to your work of art.

Once it’s time to put brush to canvas – whether it be a bag, shirt or shoe – keep a steady hand as fabric paint is made to stick, so Ctrl+Z isn’t really an option here. But as legendary painter Bob Ross once said, “There are no mistakes, only happy accidents”.

Streaks n Strokes DIY Painting Kit - Blowdry Hairdryer

When your painting is complete, blow-dry it with any standard hairdryer you have at home for about 3 minutes. After it’s fully dry, iron over your design for roughly 10 seconds to really lock the design in. Voila!
