i would think  that would work, just spray lightly, the more wet paint you gum up the more likely it is to bleed through and that is no fun. let me know if it works out for you. i would make sure you cover up everywhere you don't want to get painted b.c the spray can end up everywhere.

happybeanz - if you're wanting to do heaps of copies of the one print, you might want to try screenprintng the stencil. That way you can just print, lift the screen up, put the screen on another tee, print and repeat! it'll save time coz you dont need to wait for it to dry. try using baking paper / cookie sheets (whatever you call em) and cut the stencil out of that. Ive found it works really well, and then you dont have to use glue.

it's usually just called 'textile medium', or thats what it's called in Australia, soo i guess it would be called the same thing. Or you can buy those special paints that are already good to use on fabric and do the same thing as textile medium+acrylic  but i dont know what they're called.  Smiley Fudgegirl

If you're looking for durability use cardstock paper, not plastic. I spray it every time with spray adhesive, works perfect.

Thank you for explaining this.  I really think I just didn't get stenciling. I just kept taking the really cool patterns and using them to make really hip embroidery projects! I'm not quite sure what I thought it was everyone was doing.....but I had it all kinds of wrong in my head that is for sure!!

Thank you again!

i have to say, though. if you're only looking to make one or two copies of a print, contact paper is kind of an ingenious idea. smooches to whoever thought that up.
