No 101 – Series: Fabric Painting Techniques – Stamping, Part 17

How to create colourful designs on fabric? – Let stamps, stencils and sprays work together – they’ll do the job!

Dear friends of Your Colourful Mind,

This is the last post in our stamping series.

It’s also the last project in our little series about a set of self-carved rubber stamps. (See Posts No 97, No 98 and No 99.)

Project series – Using round self-carved rubber stamps to create various unique designs

Part 4 – Stencilling, spraying and stamping – in one project.

I had a lot of fun with this project which combined the use of stamps, simple stencils and fabric spray paint.

My supplies for this project:

a T-shirt, the set of round stamps (see above), some round cardboard pieces, fabric spray paints, a sponge brush and fabric paints.

First I arranged and flattened the T-shirt on an old blanket. Then I distributed the round cardboard pieces on the T-shirt.

Now I started spraying over the T-shirt, using different colours of fabric spray paint.

When I lifted my simple mask-stencils after the spraying, they had left clear blank spots on the fabric.

The final working step was using the stamp set to create colourful round prints over the stencilled (unpainted) areas.

Have a look at the final result – I love this colourful T-shirt and wear it a lot!
