T-Shirt Preservation

Have you ever had a beloved concert (or other) T-Shirt that you wore until it was no longer fit to wear in public? And you’ve been told it’s time to toss it in the garbage? You don’t want to throw it away, am I right. I am testing a way to permanently preserve those shirts. I cut the art work out of one of my favs that was getting more holes just from washing it. This is only a test piece. The remnant was placed on a piece of furniture grade plywood, the frame was made from some scrap wood. I had to tape the seams to keep the clear gloss from leaking out.

So, the idea is to permanently preserve the shirt in epoxy and turn it into a piece of wall art/decoration.

This was a test that proved successful!
