Inspired by the Hoppo Bumpo stencil- along I've been working on a few possible designs, of course I made the 'mistake' of asking Max what he wanted on a t-shirt......"DIGGERS"......."BIG DIGGERS!" What was I thinking!
My freezer paper order arrived today (from Punch with Judy). I've enough to last me a life time!
Despite having read Hoppo Bumpo's very well researched summary of using freezer paper for stenciling I ploughed straight into it tonight, ignoring all that sage advice (no pre-washing, peeled the paper off 2 minutes after printing.....you get the picture). I used this rather PINK shirt I picked up for $3 from Big W a while back. I'm still not sure if Adi will ever wear this in public but it was the closest thing to hand. The dino design is one I used a while back, at that time I cut it out of some scrap vinyl.
The paper stuck really well
The dishwashing sponge also did the trick
I'm thinking of adding some green grass or prehistoric trees to attempt to drown out the PINK!
Despite peeling the paper of rather pronto, the stencil worked out just fine.
I'm glad I did this before venturing off to look at everyone else's, especially this one! I'm looking forward to the mighty DIGGERS taking out the tally count (I'll be keeping the cement truck very quiet from Max)
