Stamped tea towels

See also

Create your own custom tea towels for a fraction of the cost of patterned ones. Patterned tea towels are a great way to add color to your kitchen, and make an excellent house warming gift.

Instructions:

  1. If the tea towel is new pre-wash it to prevent future shrinking in the wash which would cause the stamped image to possibly crack or flake off.
  2. Mix fabric medium to your acrylic paint, following the mixing guidelines on the fabric medium bottle.
  3. Apply the paint onto the stamp either by pouring the paint into a flat dish, or by using a foam roller to apply the paint to the stamp.
  4. Position the stamp onto the tea towel and stamp downwards distributing even pressure over the entire stamp.
  5. Allow the paint to dry 1-2 days then place a cloth over the tea towel and iron the tea towel to seal the paint stamp.
  6. Wash anything that might have paint on it such as the stamp, dishes, rollers etc.

Materials:

  • Tea towel
  • Acrylic paint
  • Fabric medium
  • Flat dish to contain paint
  • Foam roller brush (optional)
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Extra cloth or tea towel
