Applying spray paints in stencilling projects – One of the fasted (and easiest) ways of design creation on fabric items.
Dear friends of Your Colourful Mind,
Recently (see Post No 103), I started a little series of fabric-painting project presentations which focus on using spray-painting techniques.
Today’s project is about using stencils in combination with spray paint.
Spray-painting projects – Part 2
Using only one stencil but two different paint applicators
In stencilling projects, we use an object – the stencil – to cover areas of the fabric, and create the design by transferring the paint through the object’s holes or over its surface and edges.
Using fabric spray in a stencilling project makes the stencilling process very fast: the spray mist covers large areas very quickly.
The following images present a project in which I used only one pre-made stencil but two different paint applicators: I sprayed paint and applied paint with paintbrushes.
I started with spray paints.
First I sprayed slightly with two spray colours over the stencil. I then moved the stencil a bit and sprayed again. And again.
This is how the T-Shirt looked at the end of the spraying process:
Now I used the same stencil in some areas of the T-shirt again, but this time I applied fabric paints of the same colours with a round sponge brush.
That’s the final result of the 2-steps-stencilling process:
