Paisley Tote

By:

Cloth canvas totes are practical, but they can be a snore if you leave them plain. Dress yours up with airbrush stencils from Testors. This Paisley Tote uses paisley stencils for an abstract graphic that will go with all your summer outfits!

Paisley Tote

Materials:

  • ColorArtz Starter Kit
  • Plain canvas tote bag
  • Blue painter's masking tape
  • Newspaper
  • ColorArtz Serendipity Stencil Collection
  • Mango Tango Paint Pouch
  • Gremlin Paint Pouch
  • Purple People Eater Paint Pouch

Instructions:

  1. Prepare a flat work surface.
     
  2. If you are new to ColorArtz, practice on a sample.
     
  3. Lay tote bag flat with handles out flat.
     
  4. Remove stencil backing and place self-adhesive stencil into position.
     
  5. Make sure stencil is fully adhered to the fabric.
     
  6. Place sheets of newspaper overlapping the edges of the stencil and tape down with masking tape. Make sure the entire tote bag is fully covered and only the areas to be painted are uncovered.
     
  7. If multiple colors are desired within one stencil design, lightly mask off areas that will be sprayed a separate color using masking tape.
     
  8. Apply first color spraying light mist coats. Do not soak with paint. Be careful not to spray at an angle to avoid lifting the stencil.
     
  9. Let project dry.
     
  10. Remove tape masking areas to be painted with second color. Tape over the areas painted with the first color.
     
  11. Apply second color. Repeat steps 7 through 10 for each color.
     
  12. Hint: Additional colors can be created by overspraying colors starting with the lightest color and moving to darker colors. For example: Mango Tango over Gremlin would create brown.
     
  13. Once entire stencil is painted, move stencil to another area.
     
  14. For diagonal stripes, use masking tape as the stencil. Use newspaper to cover areas that will not be painted.
