Since my first freezer paper stencil project went so well, I decided to promise a second stenciled shirt to my boyfriend. I let him pick the image this time and he was keen on this Kill Bill stencil by justinexcore on craftster. Oy. That's a tricky one with lots of fiddly little bits. But okay, I figured I was up for giving it a try! So I worked away at it little by little with a nice sharp xacto knife and a lot of perfectionist angst and eventually it was done! Whooo! (see pics above)
I went looking for black and red fabric paints and had to buy a black/red/yellow/blue starter kit to get them...black was sold out everywhere. So I've now got a LOT of fabric paint (I predict more stenciling in my future).
Here it is in progress (stenciling is the only time you will find me ironing t-shirts).
Unfortunately there was a bit of a snafu with the red cross on the eye patch.... some of the red paint got under my carefully ironed down stencil. doh!
I managed to scrape most of the paint off with the xacto knife... it wasn't a pretty solution but it worked okay. I anticipate this shirt will fail via a hole in that location... then I'll have to turn the eye-patch into a real eye patch (so to speak).
