What you need:
Tulip ColorShot Instant Fabric Color – fall colors of choice
- Tulip ColorShot Fall Stencil Pack (available at Jo-Ann Stores)
- Paper towels
- Painters tape
- Disposable plastic surface cover
- Freezer paper or shirt form
Before spray painting your shirt, first wash and dry it without fabric softener. Cover your work surface with a disposable plastic surface cover. (Make sure you’re working in the well-ventilated area.)
Insert a shirt form or piece of freezer paper in between the layers of your shirt to prevent any fabric spray paint from soaking through to the back side. Choose which stencils you’d like to use from your ColorShot Fall Stencil Pack and place on your shirt. Tape down around the edges to hold in place, and cover the surrounding areas with paper towels to protect from any accidental overspray. Tip from Club Crafted: If using multiple stencils close to one another, you can trim the edges of the stencils so they can be easily layered.
Prep your cans of ColorShot according to instructions, then spray light coats over the stencil openings instead of heavy coats. ColorShot can be blended on fabric to mix colors or create a nice ombre effect! Let dry between color applications.
Once you’re happy with your paint coverage, remove the tape and stencils and let the fabric spray paint dry completely.
