INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Use a pencil to draw on triangles on the freezer paper. (The number and location of the triangles is your choice.) Or you can use a Silhouette electronic cutting machine and a Silhouette image of triangles found online.
  2. Use an iron and ironing board to smooth out any wrinkles on the pillow wrap. Apply the freezer paper stencil by ironing it onto the fabric, shiny side down.
  3. Place the parchment paper down to protect the work space.
  4. Use a 1" sponge brush and White to paint over a majority of the triangles. Rinse brush. Let dry for about 10 minutes, depending on the application.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Use a #10 flat brush and Celebration Pink to paint some of the triangles. Wipe off the brush, but do not rinse.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Use the same brush and Gold Glitz to paint some more triangles. Wipe off the brush, but do not rinse.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Use the same brush to pick up a little Celebration Pink and a little Gold; wipe off some on a paper towel. Use a dry-brush technique to fill in the remaining triangles. Rinse the brush.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Go back and add more coats of paint to the triangles, if desired. Rinse the brush.
  9. Use a #10 flat brush and Ice Crystal to paint over the White triangles. Rinse the brush. Let dry completely.
  10. Once fully dry, remove the stencil.

HELPFUL HINTS

To get a rough coloring look, do not completely cover the fabric in paint. Instead, allow the texture of the fabric to show through randomly as you paint.
