Freezer Paper Stenciling: This is such a quick and easy alternative to screen printing when you want to make a simple one of a kind piece. Works great on t-shirts, pillowcases, bags, etc.
Freezer Paper (found near the saran wrap in the grocery store)
Foam Paint Brush
Draw your design on your freezer paper with the shiny side down and then cut it out with your exacto knife. Then place your freezer paper stencil on your fabric in the desired location. After you’ve placed your art, with the shiny side down, iron the freezer paper with medium heat. I went over mine several times so that I made sure it was secure. Pay attention to the edges.
Now that the paper is secure, it’s time to paint. When I painted the heart, I made sure to pull the brush in from the edge to the center so that it didn’t push any paint under the freezer paper. Once everything is covered, let it set for an hour and then pull off the paper. Check your paint instructions as they may vary, but mine took about 4 hours to fully be set. I did the same design on a tshirt and washed it inside out the next day and it turned out great!
