DIY painted tights

Here's a super easy way to make painted tights: cut out a stencil, apply fabric paint, let dry, and that’s it!

What you need:

-Fabric paint (I used Opaque Setacolor from DeSerres)
-An X-acto knife
-A paintbrush

On your cardstock, draw your design. Then cut out the inner part.

Now put on your tights and place your stencil where you want your design to be.

Tip: I first tested this whole thing out on thin dark nylon tights and the result was too subtle for what I had in mind. So if you want a solid pattern, use thicker light colored tights.

Time to paint. To avoid leaks, hold your stencil firmly and stay still. Once the paint dries, carefully take off your tights and you’re done!
