Stencil Printing On Fabric With An Airbrush Gun

Here I stencil printed a design onto fabric with an airbrush gun. Spraying with an airbrush gun is like instant screen printing, the process is so much faster and easier too. I used createx airbrush paint pearl gold and for the upper wings gold mixed with a few drops of red transparent.

If you don’t have an airbrush gun, you could use a recycled or new spray bottle with manually adjustable nozzles.

I always play with various mixtures of paint and water to get the look I want before transferring a stencil to fabric. Adding water changes the colour, the more water you use the more transparent the colour will be.
