quick question: how far away do you hold the spray bottle from the tee?

great idea, it so much more crisp and smooth that stenciling with paint
I hold the spray bottle about 8-10 inches from the shirt. This gives you good coverage and keeps the spray light enough that just enough will soak into the shirt. Good question.

Also if anyone is still wondering what the heck freezer paper is: Freezer paper is used to wrap meats and other foods for freezing. It is a big roll of paper with a thin layer of plastic on the underside. Most grocery stores will carry it. It will be sold along with plastic wrap and aluminum foil. It usually comes in a big roll. Mine is Reynolds brand.


does the same technique work with paint?

This technique works well with paint. I've only tried it once, but lots of craftsters love to use freezer paper for paint stencils.


P.S. Thanks to everyone for checking out my tutorial. I got an award! Best of Craftster 2008!!! Woo Hoo!

I tried this today but it didn't work for me.

The bleach bled through the freezer paper and so the whole thing was faded, lol. Do you think I used to much bleach?

I was using quite an advanced stencil, so maybe it was just too hard for me!

I usually use fabric paints to stencil with, but really love this idea. Will have to keep practicing I guess.

Great tutorial - thanks a lot

Sounds like you did use too much bleach. You have to spray it on really lightly to get crisp lines. You don't want it to really soak into the fabric. It takes some patience but it is worth it. Do one light layer at a time and always wait until the previous spray is dry before you spray again.
Some fabrics take only 2 sprays while others will take 15. If it is moving too slowly you can increase the amount of bleach in your bleach/water mix.  Good luck with your next projects!

What a great tutorial!  I am going to make one up.  I just scored a ton of shirts for 49cents each at Kmart!  Too bad none were kids sized  but hey, I can have some bleach shirts!!

that is so cool! I just wanted to ask, what exactly is freezer paper? I mean, is it used for anything other than crafting? in what other situations would you use it?

Thanks!
