See how easy it is to revamp your old denim jacket with some paint and Stencil1's pattern stencils. With some fabric paint and a paint brush, some low-tack spray adhesive and a Stencil1 stencil, you can quickly breathe new life into a worn and faded denim jacket - it's so easy! One great fact about these pattern stencils is that they're washable and reusable, so find your favorite designs and add them to everything!

Project Instructions

  1. Gather your materials.

  2. Prepare your jacket for painting making sure the surface you are working on is flat and clean. Slip a piece of cardboard inside the jacket to prevent any paint from bleeding through to the other side.

  3. Grab your stencil and plan out how you would like to design your jacket. Stencil1 Repeat Pattern stencils are perfect for clothing as they are for walls. They come with registration marks to help with repeating the stencil design throughout your jacket.

  4. Place a small piece of tape underneath the registration marks and trace the mark with a pencil. Tape down the stencil onto the jacket to help keep the stencil in place while painting. Also, tape down any edges you do not want to paint for a clean finish.

  5. With the fabric paint of your choice, load up your brush. Before you start painting, be sure to wipe off any excess paint on the edge of plate or a paper towel. Less is more! This method of dry brush painting will help prevent paint from going underneath the stencil.

  6. Start painting over the stencil using a dabbing motion. Slowly build up color intensity with every layer of paint. We chose to go light to achieve a washed look but feel free to add a second layer for a solid look.

  7. Feel free to repeat this process all over your jacket! Just align the triangles on the stencil with the tape registration marks you created.

  8. This Stencil1 Repeat Pattern stencil is made to be washable, reusable, and very durable. Be sure to allow time for your jacket to completely dry and follow heat-setting instructions according to your brand of fabric paint.
