In the recent Astrology swap, I made my partner a Sagittarius shirt. I printed off the design, then cut it into recycled plastic, and then stencilled it a dozen times. I think it came out quite nice.

 What kind of recyled plastic? Like a stamp? I've seen that done with styrofoam. Curious how you did yours. Looks cool.

It looks great! What sort of paint are you using? It's vibrant & crisp which can be tricky to accomplish.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.


Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

This turned out so cute! I, too, am curious which type of plastic you used to cut your stencil. I think I have only used mylar purchased just for that purpose and for larger scale stencils for wall applications.

Your shirt came out great; the bow/arrows shapes are very distinct and sharp! If you ever get the urge, I bet similar garments, using other Zodiac imagery, would look neat as well.

You made such clear, crisp, stamps on the shirt!  How did you get the paint to go on so evenly?

Sorry for the late reply, my new job struck me down with a cold the day after I started there, this week has been just about trying to stay alive.

So I had this old old package of plastic, binder subject dividers, from back when I was in high school. I'm sure they still sell them, at least in September. It's pretty flimsy plastic, thinner than the plastic most store bought stencils are made out of, so a large stencil might not work (not to mention you're limited to 8.5x11 anyway) but mine was fine.

I printed out the image I wanted on normal printer paper, then put it underneath the plastic and traced it with a sharpie, then used an exacto to cut it out, being careful to leave bridges.

The paint is just the standard 'craftsmart' Michael's store brand. I do like ceramcoat acrylic paint best, but I don't have a store that sells it anymore, and I am always wary about paying online shipping. I mix it about 50/50 with delta/ceramcoat textile medium, which I can only get online, but it's only 10 bucks on Amazon, and the only textile medium my Michael's sells is freakin' 30something.

Thanks for all the questions, I hope this explains things a little better.
