Spray-painting on fabric is an easy and fast way of creating special effects in fabric-painting projects.
Dear friends of Your Colourful Mind,
When we talked about fabric painting supplies some time ago, we also discussed different types of special fabric paints, especially
In this and some of the following posts, I’d like to present fabric painting projects in which I used fabric spray paints to create special design or embellishment effects.
Spray-painting projects – Part 1
Spray-painting on fabric is an extremely flexible technique, and permanently finding and inventing new spraying approaches is itself a very creative activity.
Fabric spray can be used to
- directly and evenly paint large or small areas of fabric
- create resists effects with stencils and masks
- apply crumbling, folding, twisting and tying techniques for ‘batik-style’ effects.
Project example: Using pre-made stencils in a spraying project
In the following project I used different commercial stencils and two colours of spray paint to create the design on a T-shirt.
I placed all stencils on the T-shirt and started spraying.
Without waiting for the first spray paint to get dry, I continued spraying with the second colour.
After finishing the first round of spraying, I carefully took up the paint-wet stencils.
I cleaned them under cold water, then placed them on the T-shirt again, and finished the spraying.
This is the final result:
