Hi friends! This project is super fun and easy and the results look so professional! Plus with school vacations rolling around it is a fun project you can do with your kids or grandkids. Even better,you probably have everything you need in your own home! In today’s video I’ll show you how to print on fabric using a homemade freezer paper stencil.
Supplies: *Affiliate links used
- Freezer paper
- Fabric paint OR Acrylic paint mixed with textile medium
- Paint brush
- White T Shirts or fabric to print on
- Xacto knife or die cut machine for cutting freezer paper
1. Cut stencil from freezer paper. Make sure when you design your stencil the shiny side of the paper is down.
2. Place stencil shiny side down on your T-shirt and press with an iron set to the hottest temperature for the fabric you are printing on. I recommend cotton. I usually buy multi packs of mens T-shirts for this.
3. Apply paint by stenciling with a stencil brush or kids chunky brush.
4. Let dry and peel off stencil!
I recommend watching this shirt alone the first time you launder it to make sure none of the paint comes off, it shouldn’t if you are using fabric paint but better safe than sorry. You can also turn the shirt inside out and press it after the paint is dry to heat set it just to be safe. I had several viewers from the UK say that they don’t sell freezer paper over there but I have also heard it called greeseproof paper. Basically it is a white paper with a plastic coating on one side. You may be able to get some from a local butcher. If anyone from the UK can comment with a source for this kind of freezer paper in the UK please leave a comment, thanks! Happy crafting!
