I don't know about genius but you are most welcome  Grin  Maybe you want to try it on a piece of scrap fabric too.  Usually the manufacturers suggest that but I'm too lazy.

i have a bunch of ugly promotional t-shirts that i kept just for that purpose. if nothing else, i'll end up with colorful sleep shirts.  Cheesy

Maybe you could use tailor's chalk and wipe it off with a damp sponge after the stencil dries and before you iron it. 

you.

hi. i'm envisioning a multi stencil/layered project. i want to be able to mark a path for the objects i'm placing on the shirts and hoodies to line up along. i'm thinking of drawing lines on the shirt with sewing pencil. i use screenprinting ink for my stencilling projects. my one concern is that when i heat set the ink, the pencil will become indelible too.

any suggestions?

i've thought about chalk and soap, but i'm afraid that soap will react with the ink, and that chalk will rub off too easily.

help!

that looks cool! what do you do that you get stains?

i'm a home care attendant. i get food spat at me all day, and i crawl around on the floor securing wheelchairs into vehicles. the few times some of the people i work for have seen me dressed up, they've been shocked! um, dude--i clean up nice! hee!

thanks. i did. at first, she said, "take it away!" (she's developmentally disabled.) i said, "you asked for a pink tee with a red star! now let's go see if it fits." when she tried it on, she said, "that's cute!"  Grin

if it wouldn't violate confidentiality agreements, i'd post pics with her wearing it. she's so funny.

i made this for one of the women i work for because she is a superstar and her name starts with S. the star, i'm happy with. it's done with screenprinting ink. the "S"? not so much. i will never use acrylic paint and fabric medium again. it bleeds, even with a freezer paper stencil, and the consistency is not smooth enough.

so ultimately, this shirt will be redone.

but i thought y'all might like having a looksee:
