I think you could probably use wax paper if you used a cover sheet (teflon sheet, pressing cloth, even a regular piece of paper) between the wax paper and your iron. I'm making shirts for DH and friends, and this technique should work great for the lettering (I'm going to print out the swords DH picked out for the middle for an iron on transfer, then stencil the lettering.  Now all I have to do is find a good font.  Smiley  Thanks!


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

Thanks for the ah-mazing tute!  I've been wondering how to do this for a long time.  There was a tutorial in Craft magazine, but that costs $15 and I didn't want to blow my money *laughs*  I've never tried this method of screening, so I was wondering, when you iron on the image, do you have the shirt inside out, or do you iron directly on the outside?  Sorry, I am quite the "newbie". XD

I've stencilled 2 shirts using freezer paper now... the stuff I bought is made by Reynold's... same as Aluminum Foil... in the section of the supermarket where you buy tinfoli, Saran Wrap etc. It's AMAZING!!


1. Cut sheets of freezer paper to 8.5x11 and run them right through your printer.

2. Only cut out the white parts

3. iron onto shirt/bag etc. with a hot DRY iron for a few minutes--it'll stick really well... no seepage

4. don't it dry for too long before you peel the freezer paper off--it can stick in places--I just run my hairdryer over the shirt a few times until the paint is set (but not necessarily dry) and then peel off the stencil

5. wash and dry your shirts BEFORE you stencil (for shrinkage)

6. mix one part acrylic craft paint with 2 parts textile medium (available in small bottles somewhere around the craft paint) to prevent cracking

7. once paint is dry, lay a piece of parchment/baking paper over the stencil and iron with a dry hot iron for 2-3 minutes

8. wash and dry inside out

9. make sure to decide if your stencil needs a border BEFORE you paint

I actually have my shirts in the wash right now so I'm not sure how they're going to hold up in the dryer yet.

These are just some things I learned that I didn't see anywhere else.

when you mix the pain and fabric medium do you do half and half or what?
awesome tute by the way thanks so much

   I always use TWO parts acrylic to ONE part Fabric medium. And I only iron it for 30 seconds... I re-use the stencils, so long as they don't rip!  Wink

I thought I would add that freezer paper and butcher paper are the same, for anyone having trouble finding freezer paper.
Beautiful work, Bela.

Two questions:

1) are people really running freezer paper through their printers?  Doesn't the wax melt off and gum up the printer?

2) I assume fabric paint would work okay for this.... since we're stenciling on, you know, fabric.  Right?
