yeah, heat setting just sortof seals the paint. Personally, I put a thin towel or something over the garment/whatever was stenciled and go over it with an iron. It doesn't melt or harm the paint at all.. just wait until the paint dries before you heat set it. Throwing it in the drier works too.

I will be out of state until February. I may be able to check emails periodically so if you need me, it would be more timely to email me. Thanks. ANY OWED SWAP PACKAGES WILL GO OUT BEFORE I LEAVE.

if you used spray paint (high quality stuff), like i use, just let it dry and wash it if you want, or wear it first. what kind of paint did you use?

You put the iron and the towel on the back of your stencil, right? Not directly on the paint?

You can put a towel on top of the stencil and iron that. It doesn't have to be on the backside. 

Side note:

When using acrylic paint, it is best to mix it w/ a textile medium.

When I use spray paint, I don't heat set it. But you could if you wanted to, you know, just in case.
