Painted Dryer Sheet Tutorial

Supplies

-Dryer Sheets (run through the dryer with laundry or wet towels)

-Lumier Paints by Jacquard (available for $9.99 at Michael’s Craft Store)

1- inch wide Stencil Brush

Paper towels

Wax Paper or Parchment Paper


The dryer sheets that you need are the ones that look like interfacing.

Dryer Sheet 1

Cover your work surface with Wax Paper or Parchment Paper.

Shake the Lumier Paint well. Squeeze a generous amount onto your dryer sheet.

Dryer Sheet 2

It does take a lot of paint. Using the stencil brush, work the paint into the fibers.

Dryer Sheet 3

You will probably need to add a bit more paint here and there. Make sure the paint is worked very well into the dryer sheet on both sides. This takes a bit of time.

Dryer Sheet 4

Once complete, lay the painted dryer sheet on a paper towel and allow to dry over night. Using your iron, heat set the dryer sheet using a cotton setting.

I will add this tutorial to my main website sometime after the holidays. Tomorrow (Friday), I will give you the supply list for making pansies with the painted dryer sheets.

Pam please explain why you use this type of paint. Can any others be used in its place (just in case we can't find it near us).

Thank you,
Gail
