The X-Acto Knife is not my friend. I didn’t do a very good job cutting out my stencil. Maybe with practice I will get better. Maybe soon I won’t have to because I will own a cutting machine. Does anyone have the Silhouette and use it with Windows 7? It seems like the better machine because you don’t have to buy those expensive cartridges, but I am unsure about trying to get it to work with my computer that has Windows 7.
Anyway, back to the freezer paper and the X-Acto knife. I want to make some pillows and do a print with freezer paper. I am feeling extremely lazy and I don’t want to cut out the pattern tonight so I tried the freezer paper on a shirt for my son.
He likes guns. His dad likes guns. His grandpa likes guns. I know some people don’t like them and that’s ok too.
His favorite gun is a Thompson Machine Gun.
So I printed one.
Placed the freezer paper over it and tried my best to cut it out.
Ironed the waxy side down onto the shirt.
Used a stencil brush and some black acrylic paint and then peeled of the freezer paper. I didn’t get photos of these steps. Sorry.
I thought my son would really like it, but he wasn’t too impressed because I was limited with the size I could print. You can tell in this pic that he is less than thrilled.
You can’t win them all. At least I know it works and that I need a lot of practice.
