Using fabric spray paint as a background-creator
Dear friends of Your Colourful Mind,
Last time we discussed the characteristics and application opportunities of fabric spray paint.
Today we focus on two further fabric painting projects in which fabric spray paint played an important role.
Fabric Spray Paint – Project 1 – Stencilling on sprayed fabric
Here we started with a blank white t-shirt which was creased before sprayed with two different red colour shades of fabric spray paint.
Then I used a commercial stencil with white thick fabric paint to add a second layer to the design.
The final result:
Fabric Spray Paint – Project 2 – Stamping on sprayed fabric
In this second example project we applied the tie dying method in combination with fabric spray paint.
Two rounds of spraying were necessary to get a satisfying background design for the next step, the stamping.
I used two different methods to create patterns with the help of this very simple stamp:
I sticked some pre-cut pieces of tape to the t-shirt before I stamped on them.
And I used a plastic knife to doodle simple shapes directly on the stamp after it had been loaded with fabric paint.
Would you like to share your experiences with fabric spray paint and some images of your work with us?

Using stamps in fabric painting projects
We plan to use the coming posts to learn more about the fabric painting technique STAMPING, also called printmaking.
Using stamps to create designs on fabrics and apparel is real fun! Very creative! And relaxing!
And there are so many different ways to find, to create and to use stamps!
