I was trying to stencil t-shirts. I tried two...
The first one was a black t-shirt for a boy with an atary logo in white. Well... I made my stencil out of cardboard paper, my first mistake, so the paint smeared. Also the instructions on stencil revolution said to mix the textile medium (i think that's the name of it) with acrylic paint 50/50. I did that and it seemed as if the white paint mixed with the medium was too thin so it wouldn't cover the black of the shirt completely. I tried to add more white to it but still didn't cover completely. I tried to fix it with a brush, it came out worse. So you can see the black beneath the logo and it looks uneven, etc. in other words real ugly.
The other t-shirt i tried was a white t-shirt with a black cat, the paint looked good but still smeared a little so the outline is not smooth. This one is still wereable but the other one
Now i have a real ugly black t-shirt size large for boys, that i don't know what to do with. My husband says i would look ridiculous wearing it, so just to wear it around the house. I would like to fix it somehow or make it into something else. But how do i fix my stencil disaster.
Also i would like to give stenceling another try so if you have suggestions or tips I would really appreciate it.
Another thing is , I wanted to make something for my nephew (who is 9 years old) but since the stenciling thing didn't work I don't know what to make for him anymore. Any ideas?
