great news!
i finished my sith stalker armor, but i have one last question
how do u give a glossy finish to fabric?
Hmmm glossy finish on fabric........ Try coating it with latex and then coat with a gloss paint.
Problem is you need to make sure it is a flexible paint or it will crack off.
you may also try clear Platidip. Not sure if it will be glossy enough, possibly permawet?
what color is needing the glossy finish?

Got any pics? Just curious as to where it needs to be glossy.
You could buy some spandex or stretch vinyl l that is already glossy and use the t shirt as a pattern. This might be the easiest way (possibly cheaper as well)
what did you use to paint the shirt with?
