supplies for freezer paper stencilling

A: My first freezer paper stencil!

freezer paper stencil

(Don’t know what a freezer paper stencil is? Angry Chicken explains it best.)

I love it – the edges came out really crisply, and I dried the paint with my hairdryer between coats so it only took about 10 mins from ironing on the stencil to peeling it off again. This is (hopefully) going to be a handbag, although I haven’t even designed the bag yet, so it could be a little while before it’s finished.

I predict more stencilling in my future…

    Excellent stuff! What a fantastic blog!

    Where did you buy your freezer paper?

    I noticed in another post you said you were going to be at a Creativ Festival in Mississauga so I’m hoping you live in Ontario and can tell me where I can buy freezer paper as it has been unavailable at the many grocery stores I’ve visited thus far.

    Any help would be extremely appreciated!

      Hi Crystal, and thank you! You’re right, I did live in Ontario until a few weeks ago (now I’m in South Africa…) and I also had problems finding freezer paper. I had to look all over the place for it; most grocery stores don’t stock it. Eventually I found it in WalMart. It was Reynolds brand, and it comes as a huge roll – quite expensive, but it’ll last forever! You should find it with Glad wrap etc. Good luck finding it 🙂
