this is my final outcome.. it's here because i have no idea how to change the thread picture without plopping this in the start. [face palm]
so I've recently gotten off my butt and started using the fabric paints I've had for over a year they are derivan 'fabric art paint' I've never done stencils or any type of dying or fabric painting before so this is my first attempt.
this is the picture i figured I'd like to attempt
the stencil i started cutting out. i did it with freezer paper.
I've been looking at bleach stenciling lately so figured I'd do the bones bleached and the silhouette black fabric paint.
I've barely dealt with bleach period let alone intentionally staining stuff, so i sort of assumed it'd go a white-ish yellow no matter the fabric colour.. probably a bad assumption
this is what i ended up with. I cut the entire stencil out not realizing I'd get bleach seeping through the little tiny cracks of paper joins [seems like a silly thing to over look i know]
i did however think ahead and newspaper around the rabbit so i wouldn't get the splashes of random bleach on the rest of the shirt [it happened anyway so i did it to the full front of the shirt so it looked intentional.
does anyone know of a way to stop this entirely? is the only way to stop it to use plastic stencils? or something other than freezer paper?
even thought i thought I'd ruined it, i continued and redid the outline stencil and ended up with..
I'm pretty happy with the outcome given it's my first attempt.
however there were certain spots that weren't exactly how i wanted so i touched them up with fabric paint by hand [the fuzzy spots you can see]
has anyone got any tips or tricks on how to get smooth lines by hand with fabric paint?
in low light it gives of the impression that it'd almost glow in the dark, which is pretty cool
so really any tips or tricks would be helpful on either fabric painting, stenciling or bleaching.
thanks in advance
