Stencilling










Inspired by the NC Fashion Paper Challenge yesterday, I now challenge the NC and HN students who are in the midst of moodboard and sourcebook development to consider how paper mocks can be utilised as fabric simulations. Spice up your collection, add drama and excitement with pattern and motif.

Have a go at some simple techniques using paper, paint, fabric, fabric paint, bleach (with care and with good ventilation and protection please). Simple stencilling can then be embellished with stitching, embroidery, buttons and beads. The stencilled button above is ceramic and is stencilled using a doily and a sharpie pen.
