I actually made some progress this weekend (how, I'm not sure since I made a large birthday cake and two freezer paper stenciled shirts for my nephew and went to his party)!  I finished one day, and have a bunch of partial days done, and I started a large project last night.  I messed up part of it and got frustrated w/ my silly mistake.  The hubby reassured me and said that I shouldn't just skip it and should try again since it will make it look really cool.  Thank goodness for a supportive husband.  I think I will be ready to give it another go tomorrow.  After all, he is right, the large item will look better w/ this one piece.

I write everything down in a notebook, since I'm not always at home when I make claims.  I write the claim number, the person's name, and the theme idea and underneath all of that I put down their address.  I put the sent date and received date and then its easy to count how many active claims I have and where I am at.  Its a smaller notebook so it fits in my purse.  I usually doodle ideas in it as well.

Oooo!  I love that WoW card!  I miss WoW with a fiery passion.  But w/ WoW, its an all or nothing kind of thing.  I wouldn't be able to play WoW and do swaps.

Finally sent in my questionnaire.  I borrowed MargiePoo's Harry Potter ABCs theme after much deliberation with the hubster.  YAY YAY!  We both love us some Harry Potter.

Thanks for all the nice comments!

Cute. What did you use for clear coat?
I used Folkart's Artists' Varnish Gloss.  Its a polyurethan protective sealer.  It worded pretty well for what I wanted.  Made 'em nice and shiny and gave a nice layer between my paint and world.

I use gloves for certain things (the latexy non-latex kind :3)  You might want to try that!  Made life a lot easier for me XD
oooOoooo good idea!  Thanks!
2660  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Go go Spiderman and Mario T-Shirts! on: August 15, 2011 07:18:08 AM
Thanks everyone for your kind words!

Really really great. What kind of paint I want to try this. Was the freezwe paper like wax or butcher paper? I love this. Must expand my crafty mind. LOL Grin

I used fabric paint and a foamy brush/foundation sponge/regular sponge to apply the paint.  Freezer paper is a combination of butcher paper and wax paper.  Its something of its own.  You can find it in the same area as the wax paper and parchment paper.  It has a waxy side on only one side, and when you cut our your design you leave the waxy side down and then iron it onto your shirt after you cut our your design.

These are amazing! I am scared to try freezer paper stencilling but these are so neat I may just have to try. Well done!

I was scared to try it, too.  This is only my 5th and 6th time at it, and i found it an amazingly fun and easy way to do it.  Try a simply design to start off with.

You mastered the art of paper stencil How do you achieve lines so clearly defined?
Lucky nephew. Maybe you would adopt me as your niece, aunty, grandma, whatever...
After the stenciling I usually clean up anything with a regular small fine tipped brush.  I fill in here and there to make the lines look nicer.  I freehanded the lines inside of Mario, and all the small lines around and in Spiderman.  I find its easier that way then having to iron on a million little pieces and with all the color the paint might bleed anyway.  This way is easier and cleaner.
