Step Two: Painting the snowflakes
Place cardboard under the fabric to prevent it from sticking to the lining. Place the biggest snowflake at the bottom of the skirt with the smooth side of the stencil template against the fabric. Place the big snowflake right in the middle. Apply the Pearl Acrylic Paint with a flat rounded brush also called a filbert brush. Flatten the template against the fabric so that paint does not go under the template.
Allow the paint to dry thoroughly for at least 30 minutes. Using a smaller brush apply the glitter paint. The paint should be allowed to dry for at least 20 minutes.
Step Three: Adding the stones
Place the 8mm crystal color stones at the points of the snowflakes. Glue the turquoise stone in the middle of the large and mid-size snowflakes. Attach the sequins to the points of the snowflakes with the use of Gem-Tac permanent adhesive.
Apply blue stones to the medium size snowflake.
Where do you apply the glow in the dark paint? Interesting tutorial and great pictures.
In process of making similar dress for our great-granddaughter, love the bling idea. Do you think it will work on 100% cotton fabric (granddaughter didn’t want satin fabric for her child)?
Yes, it will work. Cotton is easier to paint on as well so you can really go wild.
What a beautiful idea. I would love to learn how to embellish a finished garment or other fabric project with jewels and beads. Thanks for this tutorial!
HI Mickie, you read my mind, I am working on a ready to wear a cardigan, bought it for 10 dollars and planning to make it look expensive. Stay tuned.
Thanks for the great tutorial ! Gives the dress the beautiful magical look any princess would be over the moon to wear
I want one in adult size! Little girls aren’t the only ones who like to dress up as princesses
