The benefits of freezer paper are:
- You can get it pretty cheap at walmart
- You can iron the freezer paper directly onto your fabric to minimize seeping.
- The paper peels right off with no left behind residue.
- You can feed it through your printer and print your design directly on the printer.
- regular acrylic paint
- textile medium
Here's the onesie I painted before I peeled off the paper. I made a bird just in case I was having a girl. But now that I know I'm having a boy, it will probably be given to someone.
Here are my finished products. I also made initialed pillow cases for Luke and I. I'm a sucker for monogrammed stuff!
Here's a trick we discovered: Iron on the freezer paper to the front and the back of whatever you're painting. This gives your fabric stability and prevents the paint leaking and sticking.
Have fun stenciling!
