It’s SPRING! Time to shake off winter and update our homes! I love to bring new color into the house in small ways (I can’t afford to make BIG changes). Like painting curtains, changing your mantel, etc…
So when the chance came to try out these fun Stencils and fabric paints from “I love to create”/Tulip I was excited to give it them a try! These will work on all fabric’s, curtains, rugs, canvas, furniture and more!
First off… you don’t want the fabric to bleed through the layers so put some wax paper in the middle of your paper, or underneath your project!
To get crisp lines from your stencil, whatever the shape, you want the stencil to stic, well to your surface. This adhesive spray is AMAZING! you don’t need very much either. Spray it lightly onto the BACK (the dull side, the shiny side is for paint) of the stencil, leave it for just a bit and it will get tacky.
Then stick it to your pillow/surface. I sticks really well too! I laid it in place softly, then pulled the pillow tight underneath and pressed it down! Then using a paper plate, or more wax paper using a roller spread the paint over the stencil.
Wait a min or two then pull the stencil up (you don’t want to let it dry). If you use too much of the adhesive spray you’ll have a hard time pulling it up.
Let it dry completely then you can lay over another stencil and use more fabric paint to add a secondary image! BTW make sure after the first time you use the adhesive you remember to hold it upside down and press the button to clean the nozzle. I didn’t do it and it clogged, ARGGGG rookie mistake!
Peel it away… I love that it didn’t peel up or mess the original paint layer! And while I wasn’t surprised the stripes had nice straight lines I wasn’t sure what the crown would do? I love the metallic paint too! A nice pretty shine without being obnoxious!
And done! I actually made this one for my girls bedroom… but NO ONE wants to see that room. I’m thinking about making a few more than using the same stencil on some new curtains. I love turquoise and metallics! How about you? What colors are you loving right now?
