i love the hear attack one on the backpack and it made me want to stencil something on one that i bought at target, but the material is sort of plasticky, ummmm...looks like it might be water proof, but its really thin...would fabric paint stick to it?

you might want to use acrylic paint on your plastic-y backpack. i stenciled another backpack today, but it did not turn out as well, so i wont show it to you. i get really upset when a stencil doesnt turn out. *sigh*

Hi,
I was just wondering what kind of paint to use for these stencils.  I have a bunch of fabric paint that is meant for silkscreening (which is still sitting in a box in my studio since i have no time!) and I was wondering if I could use that.  Otherwise, I have ACTUAL fabric paint that comes in the little tubes that people use to draw corny things on aprons!
Thanks!

^^^I used acrylic paint mixed with a textile medium (found with the acrylic paints). Silkscreen ink would probably work, although I haven't tried it. As for those little drawing fabric paints with the small tips...I don't think those would turn out that well, considering it would be very thick and uneven, plus it would take forever.

I know u can add up to 8 parts water to that kind of fabric paint w/ the small tips so that it is not as thick. But, the more water you add, the more you can see the brush strokes, so i'd play around w/ it before to find an effect you like. Smiley
