Stenciled T-Shirts After One Year

Easy DIY Stenciled Tee Shirts #fusionmineralpaint #stencil
 When I retired last summer from the furniture store, I purchased a few cheap t-shirts (this one is from Hobby Lobby) for my summer "retirement" wardrobe,  stenciled them, and wore them over and over.

Some of the stenciling held up well, some not so much.

I used Fusion Mineral Paint in Champlain to stencil the words.  

I washed the t-shirt in warm water in my washing machine, partially dried the t-shirt in the dryer, and hung it on a hanger to dry.

I didn't iron it, but if I wanted it pressed, I would not iron on the stenciling.  I would use a pressing cloth, parchment paper or iron from the reverse side.

This t-shirt was from Kmart.  As it turned out, I didn't have any Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black on hand, so I used Ceramcoat Select Multi-Surface Paint in Black.  

Fabrics were included, along with other surfaces, on the Ceramcoat Select Multi-Surface paint bottle label.

After just one washing, I noticed the "Vintage" stencil was fading.  

At first, I didn't really mind because it seemed to work with a "Vintage" t-shirt.

But when I pulled the t-shirt out to wear this season, I noticed the stencil was really faded.

I will be using Fusion Mineral Paint for my fabric stenciling from now on.

The "Vintage" market extension stencil is from Old Sign Stencils.

This t-shirt was also a Gildan from Hobby Lobby stenciled with Fusion Mineral Paint in Champlain, and the Potting Shed stencil from Old Sign Stencils.

I also stenciled a t-shirt for my mom HERE using Fusion Mineral Paint, and the Old Sign Stencils "Bingo" stencil.  She loves senior Bingo!

I'm going to stencil some new tees this summer too!  

Stenciling on fabric is easy.  Just tape the stencil onto the t-shirt, use a pretty dry brush with Fusion Mineral Paint, and pounce.
