Pumpkin Sweets Spooks & Treats Stenciled Bag Project from Oak Lane Studio
Help them gather up some Halloween fun with this Pumpkin Sweets Spooks & Treats Stenciled Bag Project from Oak Lane Studio.
Here's what you'll need:
- Spooks and Treats Halloween Craft Stencil
- Americana Acrylic Paint
- Americana Fabric Painting Medium
- Double-ended Stencil Brush
- Repositionable Spray Adhesive
- Frog Tape Painter's Tape
- Plain white cloth grocery bags
- Paper Plates (or Paint Trays)
- Paper Towels
Repositionable Spray Adhesive
On a protected surface, spray the backside of your stencil with Repositionable Spray Adhesive.
Preparing to Stencil
After positioning the stencil on the bag, thoroughly shake your bottle of Pumpkin Americana Acrylic Paint prior to pouring out a small amount onto a paper plate.
Add an equal amount of Fabric Medium and stir until mixed completely.
After soaking the bristles, remove excess paint from the brush first using the edge of the plate and then by swirling the brush on a stack of paper towels.
Frog Tape and Masking
Next, use Frog Tape to cover the areas where the different colored text will be close together.
Stenciling the Orange Text
Apply the color in light coats using the same swirling motion.
Continue adding coats until the color is rich and uniform.
Tape Removal and Re-masking
Now, carefully remove the tape.
Reapply some tape - this time covering the orange text that's close to the remaining letters.
Stenciling the Black Text
Pour out some Americana Black and once again mix it with the Fabric Medium.
Apply the black color to the remaining text as you did earlier.
Once completed, carefully peel away the stencil to reveal your festive new Trick or Treat bag!
