I hope you have all seen "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," because it has inspired me to make this- my favorite stencilled project ever.


It began with a plain blue hoodie I recieved for Christmas. I decided it needed serious stencilling.


So I found a box of Freezer Paper. I have used contact paper for all my stencilled projects in the past, but I decided to give this a try.


Here I am tracing my design onto the freezer paper.


Two completed stencils. (The image with three Z's is Team Zissou's logo.)


Got my paint and textile medium- what I always use.


Ironed the first stencil on and painted it. (I used pieces of contact paper for the triangle in the "A" and the circle in the "O".)


First stencil done! The picture makes the edges look kind of rough but they're quite crisp in real life.


I decided I didn't want to use freezer paper for the Z logo so I cut it again, this time out of contact paper. Put it on and painted the big Z light yellow...


And the little Z's white.


Voila, stencilling complete.


I decided it needed something more, so I found brass buttons with an image of a bird holding an anchor on them. They seemed especially appropriate.


So I sewed six of these buttons on...and...


It is done! [Note how cool my friends are for getting me a life size Derek Zoolander for Christmas.]

Looks Superb!  Great project. I just saw the flick last night and I loved it...Bill Murray Rocks!  I'm a newbie and have a question for you...what is textile medium?  I see that you used acrylic paint.  Do you use that first and then go over it with the textile medium or do you mix the two together?  I made a shirt with stencils using only the acrylic paint, but I haven't worn it yet because I don't know how it will wash.

Thanks! Textile medium is this stuff you buy that makes the paint more flexible, less flaky, and allows it to really soak into the fabric. It's normally placed right by the acrylic paint racks in stores. You mix the paint and the medium together- I'm not sure about the ratio really, I just mix until it's a good consistency.

Thanks people. I was especially happy after I washed it and it still looks good as new.
