Freezer Paper can be a Painter’s BFF

Welcome Paint Lovers!

I LOVE using freezer paper anywhere other than my freezer.  And one of my favorite ways to use freezer paper is to create a painting stencil on fabrics.

{Here’s the “how to”}

You can use any fabric you’d like… I’m on a burlap kick, so that’s what I used.

To create the seahorse I found an image online that I like and printed it off.

I took a piece of freezer paper (slightly larger than the image size) and placed the shiny side down on my cutting mat and placed the seahorse image on top.

I used a piece of painter’s tape to hold all the pieces still.

With an X-Acto blade I cut around the outline of the image cutting through the paper (with the image) and the freezer paper.

Once your images is cut out you will have this…

Take a piece of your cut out burlap and place the freezer paper shiny side down in the spot you want it.

Take an iron on a “no steam” setting and press the freezer paper onto the burlap.  I held it still for about 5 seconds then moved it around, repeating a few times.

I took a stencil brush and bounced on my DecorArt Snow White paint and textile medium (this mixed with acrylic paint creates a fabric washable paint).  Follow the direction on your bottle for the correct ratio.

After letting it dry about 10-15 minutes I pulled off the freezer paper… the moment of truth!

Super cute!!!
