I just did my first freezer paper projects and OMG did that take me a long time to do! I normally do plastic stencils with discharge paste but I wanted to try something new. My sister got my Dad tickets to a KISS concert for his birthday last month. The concert is next week and so for father's day (and the concert) I decided to make him and my uncle, whom is going with him, shirts to wear. I also did a pair of shoes for my dad, as well. So here are my first freezer paper stenciling projects! (Images are from the internet, not original art by me)
I love that I got to use color! With discharge paste you get a fun distressed look for your shirts, but its always the same color. I have shirts with color, now! Yay! I will get better with doing these eventually. I'm not use to cutting out with an exacto knife instead of a hot stencil cutter.
And now to the shoes:
I also did these with freezer paper stencils. I just did the white part on the faces with the stencils and then added the hair and colors. Its way harder to apply freezer paper to shoes, but it worked. The swirls and designs behind the faces were already on the shoes.
I used fabric paint for all of these and used a little sponge to apply the white and colors on the shirts, and the white on the faces.
And this is what my hand looked like at the end of all this. LOL! I really like this method of stenciling and I definitely think I will try this again. I guess the only downside is that it takes a white to do and that the stencils aren't re-usable like my plastic stencils I make for the discharge paste. Oh well, color is fun!!!
