Paint Your Own T Shirt in Tanjung Keluang!
In Tanjung Keluang, you can learn to paint T Shirts using nipa palm's sap. First, you make a rough sketch using the paints derived from the sap by pencil, then you dab the brush bit by bit to enhance the drawings. When you think it's complete, you coat the painting using a mixture for silk screen (screen printing), wait until it dries, then you're done! The paint will last for a long, long time, especially if you wash the shirts by hand and dry it in a shade.
The sap is derived from the fruit, as you can see here.
There are currently two artists in Tanjung Keluang who specialize in painting the T Shirts. Usually they paint orangutans, sea turtles and the like. But you can order custom-made shirts to them. Bear in mind that it might take a while for them to process your requests. (And, yes! You can order the painting of your loved ones in your T Shirt!)
