This is so cute! I love Phineas and Ferb. Excellent work.

Thanx! From what I saw,my nephews liked it too.Smiley
I actually love doing stuff like this,customizing shoes with a certain topic/theme etc. However I never have people to do it for,doing stuff for myself leads to uninspiredness/no topics......so,I don't do much of it. Which I actually dislike very much....Wink

Hey everyone,

This was the first time I customized a shirt and worked with freezer paper (really love it!)
It's a Christmas gift for my nephew,who loves soccer and watching the cartoon Phineas&Ferb....so I painted the character's with a soccerball and the first letter of his first name.

Thanx! The problem's solved by not starting rightaway with my markers,but make a white base layer first.Smiley

Thanx 4 the tips!
I used a bright oceanblue color. Atm I don't have the resources to buy textile paint,so I think I'm gonna try again with the blue but this time I'm gonna use just a few drops of textile medium and not mix it 1:1 like suggested at the bottle.

Yet another question...how did you get the colored paint from the spiderman images to take so well on the dark fabric?
I'm currently doing a black fabric shirt for a Christmas present,at least I'm trying to,I've mixed some blue acrylic with a textile medium but now it's dry after 2layers there's no blue showing up...still looks like black:(

What to do now?....paint it over with a layer of only blue acrylic no textile medium (will it mix with the previous textile medium layers,once it's ironed?cause I don't want it to disappear once it get's washed)
Or...paint it over with a white layer (with or without textile medium?) let it dry, and then again with blue.
The fabrics already kinda stiff from the previous 2layers.

Or could it perhaps be that I used to0 much textile medium?...that the blue pigments got too watered down?though it says on the bottle to mix it 1:1.

Anybody any ideas?

Hello all Stencilers!

I have kind of a problem and wonder if you could help me:)
Currently I'm (trying) painting a shirt with Posca Markers&freezer paper. The markers are really awesome,however when I'm trying to piant inside the stencil I get all these loose threads (rippling/crackling textile?) which makes it quite hard to paint and for the paint to cover well. The threads start sticking to the tip etc.

Does anyone have any advice on how to prevent this? (since I'm not really good with a brush for detailed stuff and I don't have any textile paints.)

Hi everyone!

First I'd like to give credit to all the creative crafty peeps on here! I've been lurking for a while here now and I see so much cool stuff and in various different type of crafts...and what strucks me the most is the interdisciplinary craft skills of so much Craftsters on here!
There are so many things I'd like to learn&make,so I hope this community can help me get started....and that I'll eventually be able to share some cool stuff too;) (I'd really ;ove to be able to embroider designs on tshirts,caps etc.,but I don't even have a sewing machine or know how to work one Roll Eyes)

Some of my stuff can be found here: www.cargocollective .com/sculmully (only digital)  and http://sculmully.deviantart.com/ (with some craft related stuff too)

Wow,those shirts look amazing! Kudos to you! Grin

I've done some stencils myself with spraypaint,not on fabric though just canvas. Unfortunately freezer paper,as far as I know,isn't for sale in over here in The Netherlands Sad...but I'll think I'm gonna buy some from ebay.
Anyway...I was wondering how you got the layers lined up so well? Do you have a technique for that?
Also what brand of fabric paint do you use?...do you thin it with water or just apply it as it comes straight out of the bottle? Would regular acrylics+textile medium work too (also on the long term)?
