Adding Bling with Fabric Stencils, Sew-On Jewels, and Sequins

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.

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)?
