So my DD said to me, from the sofa, make me something...she is my stencil cutter in chief and so she does deserve to get something occasionally. I had saved this jack cutout, from a stencil that she had cut for me. This had come out in one piece and so I thought it could be used. And this tute was inspired by the fall nerd battles..I have never done them before, until now!

but how to use it, you can use this kind of thing with a bleach spray, as this gives a nice effect, but I wanted something more contained. So I thought I would use the cutout within a frame, but the colour of the tee shirt needed to be taken into account.

I wanted Jack to be white, so the background needed to be white. but I didn't want to waste paint and didn't want to have too thick layers of paint.

step 1, lay down the cutout--NB DO NOT IRON YET. Using masking tape make a border all around the cutout, getting quite close to it, remember we are trying to not use too much paint.


2, remove the cutout,


3 fill in the shape with the colour that you want the cutout to eventually be on your teeshirt. This will be the main colour
 

4 allow to dry,

5, fully dry, remove the masking tape


6 Iron on the cutout, in mine, this didn't stick as well to the paint layer as it does to the fabric, so you have to be careful with applying paint over this, use a dabbing rather than a brushing motion with your brush.


7 make another border outside of the cutout, This will be the final border around the design, so it needs to be regular and centered. I choose a square, but you could use any shape.


8. Paint your background colour, this goes over the cutout, and within the final border. In this design I wanted the eyes etc to be the same as the background colour. But it would be possible to mask off areas with more masking tape, and add a third colour.



9. peel off the cutout and take off the masking tape and enjoy!

Cutting out freezer paper stencils is such a PITA, that I hate to throw the cutouts away
