Sooo I got freezer paper the other day, and totally fell in love! I've been obsessively crafting the past few days and really loving the results.

This was the first shirt I made:



Which was followed by this one...



And that's about where I started going crazy, and made all of these:





(NES undies, just trying out the stencil- didn't want to use up a shirt, haha)









Couple detail shots:





And the happy crafter:



And the happy boyfriend:



And that's been my past 2 days in a nutshell! Comments appreciated muchly. Cheesy

Those are fantastic - did you draw the stencil templates yourself?

Very nice!  I have recently fallen in love with freezer paper stencils also.  I actually have the NES one, I just haven't figured out what to do with it yet.  Great job!  Grin

I saw this in the recently added section and at that moment I fell in love with your Warhol stencil. They are all really great, but being the art geek that I am, would you mind if I copied your Salvador Dali and Andy stencils for a future tees?

Thanks all for your comments!

I got the stencils from random googling, mostly "spray paint stencils" and things, since I couldn't find many freezer paper ones. I'll post links if I find the exact sites. I made the Squirtle and Brick House stencils myself, and the paint splatters on Dali were from vector stock images. Other than that, they were all from a couple neat stencil sites I found. Smiley

They're all Tulip Puffy fabric paint- love that stuff! The "Brick House" tee is actually a bit dimensional ... I really love the way it turned out. It puffed up nicely because I used so many layers of paint.

Gotta say, though- I think Warhol and Dali are my faves of the bunch! Smiley

And would love to add some color!

I didn't actually use any bleach for these stencils, just straight fabric paint. Smiley

I am always open to personal swaps...I'm always on the lookout for new bags, shawls, punk/steampunk accessories, Altoids tins, etc. As a professional illustrator/fine artist, I can offer something crafty, or something more artsy. Let's talk!

xtHEgRAYpILGRIMx, I found freezer paper at the grocery store here, it can be pretty elusive. Took a few stores before I found one that carried it. I absolutely love it. Definitely the best thing I've ever used for stenciling on fabric.

I tried "puffing" the paint by just holding an iron over it and letting it steam; it didn't make a big difference on many of the shirts. The biggest "puff" was on the Brick House shirt, which I did about 6 coats of paint on.

Freezer paper is a paper used to store foods in the freezer- it's like paper on one side, and waxy on the other. Smiley

I havent seen freezer paper in the UK, you will need to sweet talk a craftster in the US and do a swap. Its what I did and freezer paper is brilliant!

freezer paper has wax just on one side, so when you iron it onto fabric the wax melts and lightly bonds to the fabric, if you iron waxed paper, chances are it will stick to the fabric, but also to your iron. You could always used waxed paper and put another thin piece of paper on top and cut the stencil through both pieces of paper and iron them on together, then your iron should be OK

Fabric and quilting suppliers usually stock freezer paper in the UK as it's used for piecing and applique.

Awesome Monkey - yup, that's exactly how it's done!  I'd done some screen printing before with cutting my own stencils, so I had a little experience, but really, I was a total novice when I did these. I guess my picky crafty nature helped. Wink

I've made a couple, but with regular fabric paint. I love how yours looks like a vintage tee. Is the puffy fabric paint more opaque than normal fabric paint? Yours almost looks like spray paint, which is why I was surprised it was fabric paint. You just brushed it on? Hubby fell in love with the Warhol one.

I bought stencil brushes (like so: http://www.fredaldous.co.uk/shop_images/product_fullsize/492960002.jpg ) and dabbed the paint on. Some tees I only did one layer, some I did multiple. The ones with less layers are the ones that look more vintage. Smiley

I don't find the puffy any more opaque, but it does puff up nicely when you hover an iron over the dry paint; it gives it a neat texture against the fabric.
