I was reminded of Rachel's festive post in 2013 where she showed you how to stencil a table runner, hers was inspired by Madonna's dress. I found a couple of earlier projects that used the same CS57-R 5 point star stencil that Rachel used and because we are approaching the time of year when a little starry sparkle is expected I thought I'd share them.
A much younger me stencils the stars with spray paint around 1990. I used spray cans quite a lot in those days, you can see them on the shelf beside me. I think I still have that sweater!
This was Easy Living magazine's interpretation of our 5 point star stencil.
A cotton duvet cover was stencilled with stars. The gold stencil paint was heat set with a hot iron after stencilling the fabric. It lasted very well.
Unfortunately the same could not be said of the stencilled stars on these bed canopies. I sent all the stencilled fabric away to be flame proofed and the metallic paint reacted with the flame proofing solution, I now stencil fabric after the flame proofing process. However, I like the tarnishing and it is the sort of finish that I get asked to replicate. Note, use an aqua colour with gold or copper paint to acheive a patina effect...its much quicker than waiting for it to oxidise. If you prefer your stars to be a little spikier take a look at the CS58-R 8point star
