Stick your stencil down using spray adhesive, make sure you cover the stencil otherwise some paint might go underneath anyway. When putting paint on the stencil, ONLY move your brush up and down in tapping-like motions which will decrease bleeding a lot.

Cute shirt. Very good for first attempt.

Great - I swear by hairspray, especially if you use a hairdrier for about 30 seconds to make sure it's stuck. It's great for shirts because I found spray adhesive to leave gross stuff left behind but hairspray comes out and smells pretty in the mean time!

I agree, spray adhesive can be tricky, especiallyif your getting down to the last of whats left in the can, it can spray out yucky blobs that dont wash out very well. Hairspray, especially cheap punk rock hairspray like aqua net, will hold your S**t in place while you stencil, and then wash out like a charm.

for hairspray...  how do you use it?  do you lay the paper on top and spray over it?  or spray the paper and then lay it on the fabirc?  I'm confused...  I wouldn't think it would stick well enough.

Spray the back of the paper and stick that shiznit onto the shirt. When youve got it placed used the hairdyer for a min to really adhere it to the shirt. Did that make sense? Your just subing the hairspray in place of spraymount.
