Fandom is not just a noun, itâ€™s a verb. To be a part of fandom is to participate, geek out and show your love by wearing your fandom literally on your sleeve, or in this case, on your chest.
Oh Torchwood, how do I love thee? Let me count the waysâ€¦
22 hexagons worth, thatâ€™s apparently how much!
Pre-wash t-shirt without fabric softener.
Carefully cut pieces out with an exact-o knife. Start with the hexagons first, keeping them in order. Then cut and discard the gray area. (Or, if youâ€™re my teenage daughter, pinch it from the trash and put it in the clear pocket of your binder.)
Set a dry iron to medium.
Place cardboard or newspaper inside t-shirt to help prevent bleed through.
Place stencil on t-shirt, aligning the hexagons until they are even. Carefully press in place with the iron.
Use the foam brush to gently paint on the fabric paint, being careful to not push it under the edges of the stencil.
Allow a few minutes to dry, then carefully remove the outside of the stencil.
If the stencil is still wet, use a straight pin to remove the hexagons. Otherwise, just gently peel away each one, setting them aside as you go.
Finish drying according to manufacturerâ€™s directions.
Freezer paper stenciling is my favorite stenciling technique and can be used for any of my stencils and for most stenciling on fabric.
