It linked to this Stay At Home Artist post about making freezer paper stencil shirts.
Damaris and I both decided to make shirts. We began by printing out the text/design we wanted. We then put the printout underneath the freezer paper and traced it in sharpie.
Next, we used an X-Acto knife to cut out the places on the freezer paper where we wanted to paint to be on the shirts.
Here is mine all cut out.
Then we ironed the freezer paper to the shirts.
Then the painting began (after putting a piece of cardboard inside the shirt so that the paint wouldn't seep through onto the back of the shirt).
After two coats of paint and allowing it to dry to the touch, we began pulling the freezer paper off the shirt.
Then we let the paint dry more overnight before we heat set the paint by ironing on the wrong side of the shirt.
Here's my finished product (computer keyboard with the words "i blog" underneath):
Here's Damaris' finished product (a Doctor Who inspired shirt with checkmark boxes next to the words "single", "taken", and the one which is checkmarked "waiting for a mad man with a box"; we also did a bit of improvising on her shirt because a spot got on it while we were ironing the freezer paper on so she had me paint tally marks over it and in two other spots which is something Doctor Who related that I don't totally understand but that she loved, so it worked out):
I love my Maris!
This was a fun project even if it was labor intensive to cut out the stencils. We both really love our shirts.
