I used the above colors of paint.  You can of course pick other greens just make sure they have a gradient effect.

Freezer paper is one of the easiest ways to stencil fabric.  Just cut your shape and iron it on your shirt.  That is what I used in this case and the outline turned out very sharp and crisp.
1.  Print a four leaf shamrock shape on plain paper.  Lay your shamrock under freezer paper.  Use a craft knife to cut the shamrock out of freezer paper.  Iron freezer paper to front of t-shirt.

2.  Mix paint 2 to 1 with Americana Fabric Painting Medium.

3.  Use a ruler to evenly space your colors.  TIP:  Write on freezer paper with a pen or pencil where your colors will change.

4.  Insert scrap cardboard or card stock in between front and back or shirt.  Paint with each color starting with the darkest on the bottom.  Use your ruler as a guide for the lines.

5.  Lines between colors should slightly overlap.  Paint 2 coats on your shirt.

6.  When dry, remove freezer paper stencil by pulling away from shirt.  Air dry for 24 – 48 hours, then heat set for 30 seconds with iron.  TIP:  Shirt should be washed inside out on gentle cycle.
