Hi, this is Wendy Aikin. Today I used a stencil I designed a while ago. I normally work with encaustic, but today I’m playing with fiber and paint to create my own unique fabric design for a pillow. I just moved into a little farmhouse and my guest room is yellow and black – the inspiration for my color choices. The pillow will look perfect – once I unpack the sewing machine!
Jacquard Textile Color Fabric Paint (yellow & black)
Medium weight muslin sized for your project
Step One: If you are using a lightweight fabric tape it to a protected work surface.
Step Three: Apply paint using a stencil brush.
Hint: Before you wash the stencil, blot it on piece of paper to start an additional project. We'll use this for a project I share next month on StencilGirl Talk!
Step Six: If you have used textile paint by Jacquard, be sure to follow the directions to set the color.
Here’s a short time lapse video showing the stenciling:
Now I’m off to try and find the sewing machine so I can actually make a pillow out of this amazing fabric!
