How I made my allsorts candy print

December 3, 2015 No Comments

A while back I blogged about the liquorice allsorts dress that I made. Most of the candy inspired design were created using colour blocking but I also did a print, which is the pink and black candy on the front bodice. It was a pretty straight forward process, much due to using stencil spray glue for the first time which really helped the stencil stay in place. The glue did however leave a tiny amount of residue which is visible when the print is viewed up close.

Materials used

  • Pink and black fabric print color
  • Stencil spray glue (removable)
  • Carton material for creating the stencil (I used a cereal box)
  • Stencil sponge

Making the stencil

First I created the stencil on the cereal box, using on one small and one bigger plate as a guide.

Printing the pink circle

As fabric printing can be fickle I did the print on uncut fabric so that it wouldn’t cause me to much grief if the first printing run didn’t work out. Then I printed the pink circle ring, using the outer part of the cut-out and the smaller inner circle to create the ring shape.

I used a generous amount of paint to fully cover the fabric.

The black inner circle

Next step I forgot to take a photo of, but after the pink colour had dried I covered the pink circle with the bigger ring circle and then added a generous amount of black colour to the inner circle.
