What materials did you use? Cotton Jersey, textile paint, stencil pattern and lots of patience :)

You're right, practice, practice, practice! It really shows how important it is to run a few sample swatches.....Looking good!

Thanks Natalie, It really takes time to create this process alone, that I have decided to wait and try to find the best materials possible, before I try the whole garmet. I'm creating swatches in all technics so that I can produce something that I will be proud of for life :)

Great results! I like stencilling with sponges -- good results and inexpensive to do. The one thing that always seems to take forever is cleaning the paint of the mylar/plastic stencils afterwards... Anyone have a good solution for that?

i just let it dry on my stencils and then peel it off later, after it's thick enough to come off easily.

Great idea to practice first, thanks for the tip.
