Hoy os traemos un tutorial de como hacer tus propias camisetas con la técnica del STENCIL, está en inglés, pero las imágenes hablan por sí mismas, ahora os toca a vosotros, a crear!!!!!
This tutorial deals with printing up low cost t-shirts with your
existing stencils using paint. There are many ways to print stencils up
on shirts, silk screens etc, but this is the cheapest and easiest and
only way that we have explored so far.
Pretty much any type of stencil material will do for the printing.
We have found acetate to work the best, as it adheres to the fabric and
prevents bleeding. However we have also printed shirts using laminated
stencils or just ordinary stationary paper for the budget conscious
(NOTE: paper bows due to the moisture in the paint, therefore paint
It’s harder then you think to find a decent quality blank shirt at a
low cost for printing stencils on, but we’ve found that the thicker the
shirt, the better. Just make sure that you wash the shirt first to
allow for shrinkage.
up to you what you use for the actual printing. There are a few
products on the market for adhering paint to fabric. personally we use
a textile medium which can be mixed 50/50 with normal acrylic paint,
ask your friendly assistant at your local craft or hobby store about
them. The medium helps to stain the fabric with whatever color acrylic
paint that you mix in. We’ve found that approximately 5ml of paint and
5ml of textile medium should roughly cover a A4 sized stencil when
The good thing about using this medium is you can create any colour
using your acrylic paints. The only thing about using a medium like
this is the print will fade after time if washed in warm water on a
‘normal’ cycle, so hand washing or using a ‘gentle’ cold cycle on your
washing machine will help maintain the stain, but I like the prints
when they begin to fade anyway.
If you’re after something more permanent other options include using screen printers ink or Bleach.
Ready to Roll
After your shirt is washed and dried, lay it over a book or hard
board larger then the area you are going to stencil. Tape your stencil
down using medical tape and mask around the edges to stop any unwanted
Mix up your paint and medium together really well. You’ll need a
sponge roller about 50mm in width to roll on the paint. Work the roller
with paint until its has a generous coverage, make sure your roller is
covered evenly by rolling it on a flat surface, like a dinner plate.
When rolling the paint onto the stencil, try to work with the direction
of the cuts from the outside towards the middle. The paint will help
stick the acetate down, but don’t push down too hard or apply too much
paint at once. Take your time to get a feel for the rolling, after a
few shirts its surprising how assertive you can be with the rolling.
Now just peel the stencil off carefully and be totally amazed at
what a fantastic job you have just done, don’t leave it too long
though, as the textile medium begins to dry fast and becomes sticky.
When the paint is totally dry you need to color-fast the print by
placing a clean piece of cloth over the stenciled area and ironing over
it. Repeat this a few times to really set the print into the fabric. I
tend to always hand wash my shirts in cold water the first few washes.
Now wear your shirt with pride for a better quality of life and
remember, fuck grace and fuck modesty, accept all compliments with
arrogance for you are now better than everyone.
