I've used both the Speedball opaques and the Jacquard opaques, and they work well on dark colors (even black) with just (about) two layers.  They are pricier, but you need less paint and you don't need any textile medium, so I like them.  But most of the choices are in "glittery" shiny colors. 

And great job on your first stencils, btw!

Thanks for the info, Quincy134!  I think I will go out and buy some and redo the superman stencil.

This is an awesome shirt!  I must have one for PR watching!  Great job.  Wink

Thank you =)

Thanks for the compliment.  Yes, I used freezer paper.  And the speedball paint works great.  It's for screen printing on fabric, but you can use it for stenciling on fabric too.

Wow thanks so much. It makes total sence but I had never though of that idea before! lol

I have a problem of getting too much paint on the paper and it starts to wrinkle then I have problems on my shirts. I need to convence myself that it doesn't need as much paint as I think it does!

On the acrylic paint front, you could do a white 'background' in white acrylic paint where you want your design to be. then paint the desing on top, it seems to show up more. The tshirts look great!!

I use acrylic paint fabric medium mix on all my projects and as already said I find it does sometimes take a couple of layers of paint to achieve the colour I'm after.
Your stencils are great:D
