Thanks to you guys!  The kids and I got very excited reading the various tutorials and thought it would be a craft that we could all get into!

The halloween costume for "accident victim" was definitely enhanced by the tread stencil.  It was perfect for a first project since it didn't need to be perfect - any smudging or imperfection would be barely noticeable

so I cut it out of acetate first since I had a roll of it, but the little tabs broke off after one print, so I redid it on cardstock and contact paper -that worked great.

Spray adhesive, stencil brush, regular craft paint.

I love that it is not uniform and crisp .... looks like real tread print - i think this is a bonus and not a defect in this case.

thank you~!

I did a sample on some scrap fabric and thought that the irregular marks looked more realistic too

we are very psyched about trying this craft on *real* clothes

I also love that it looks like a real treadmark. It looks like you put paint on a real tire and rolled it across the shirt!
