Camouflage a nail polish stain

This flowy pair of trousers was attacked out of nowhere, by a bottle of nail polish. Result: an ugly stain that could not be removed in any way. But it's not because you can't remove it, that you can't camouflage it. With some embroidery, for example.

Pair of trousers with busy design is lying on the floor, with a plant next to it. Below the leaves of the plants you can see an embroidered flower, that matches the design of the print and is camouflaging a stain of nail polish.

Do you have a garment with nail polish stains lying around? Read on below to find out how to camouflage that stain, and what materials you need to do so. Don't feel like doing it yourself? Feel free to drop me a line, and together we can find a solution.

What do you need?

Camouflage a nail polish stain

Carefully study your victim. Does the fabric have a print? Or is it just plain? If the latter, you can add whatever design you like. If the former, you can use the existing print to create a camouflage design for the stain. And that's what we'll do in the steps below.

  1. Choose a design that is at least as large as the stain you want to camouflage.
  2. Place a piece of water soluble transfer paper on top of the original design.
  3. Use a pencil to transfer the design to your transfer paper.Piece of soluble transfer paper lying on the design of the fabric to be able to copy it.
  4. Cut the transfer paper roughly around the edges, making sure you leave some room to easily embroider on top of the design.
