Hey guys, I wanted to stencil something on white vinyl--not the super glossy kind, it's matte.  I had planned upon using acrylic b/c that's what I have, but will this rub off do you think?  Can I still heat set it?  I'll use a towel between and not make it too hot so as not to burn the surface.  Any ideas?  It'll hopefully be a really cool project, but its for a gift so I don't want it to turn out crappy.  Let me know if you have any ideas/hints.

I did a "silkscreen" but really, it's a stencil on black matte vinyl ages ago and it's holding up great. I didn't use fabric medium, since really, it's not fabric, it's vinyl!
Here's a pic:

My fiance uses his iPod and the cover everyday and the frog is like new.

Hope that helps!

Wow, that evil frog thing looks cool!.. but i have a few q's: You said you didnt use fabric medium because its not fabric, so did you just use straight acrylic paint? ANd did you heat set it or treat it in anyway? and.. uh no, thats all.  Tongue Well, i hope the frog cover keeps looking good.... Grin

Yep, straight acrylic paint. No heat set, because it's paint without fabric medium (which is the part that needs heat setting). No treatment at all. Mike's been using that case since the 20th of March and it looks exactly the same as in the pic there.
