Tools & supplies:
sack cloth dish towels (I got mine at Target)
acrylic paint (I like Martha Stewarts)
fabric painting medium (comes in a bottle, like the paint)
tape (masking or painting)
round sponge brush
Pandora station: Amos Lee
2 - Wash and iron the sack cloths. Then tape one down onto some layers of newspaper. Taping the cloths down keeps them from shifting.
3 - Place your stencil on the cloth, where you want it. I used the bottom of the stencil and lined it up with the bottom of the cloth.
4 - Squirt some paint onto a paper plate, I mixed a couple of colors together to get the different colors I wanted. Then squirt in the fabric medium, see the instructions on the container to see the ratio. It doesn't need to be exact.
5 - Using the round stencil sponge brush, hold the stencil with one hand, and then paint with the other. Don't get the brush too full of paint.
6 - Move the stencil if you need to and paint again.
7 - Carefully remove the tape from the cloth and hang the cloth to dry, the instructions say to dry for up to two days, but in this Arizona heat, I dried them for about four hours outside on a clothesline.
8 - Follow the instructions on the fabric medium to see how long to heat set the paint with an iron, as well as to wash them again.
