Hey, i'm thinking of stenciling a pillow case for a friend, but i was wondering if that would be uncomfortable to sleep on (kinda scratchy...) so should i go with an smaller stencil or off center so it wont be right where your head is

or is there any other method?

hiz-elp is loved

if you just do acrylic paint plain and do only one or two layers, it should be fine, but you might not want to trust me Grin

If you use textile medium with the acrylic it'll make it softer.  Mix, paint, set, wash (to make sure).

That is a great idea with the two cases but, another great idea and simple is get like a pillow case with little to no like detail work and bead it. Even bead it with the paint. either way its a special gift to anyone. By the way I made the cutest strawberry shortcake pillow case with beads. Keep your ideas flowing!~Candi Smiley

This would look beautiful have the same question as xveganettex.  See it's me...my alter ego...and my hair.  It has a mind of its own.  I even think it has an alter ego also because sometimes....sometimes... Angry Angry Angry

I stenciled a shirt with acrylic and it came out stiff...then I did another fabric with acrylics and medium (2part acrylic 1part medium) and it came out as if it was part of the fabric. I used Delta Ceramcoat Textile Medium  It has a little green jigsaw puzzle piece that says "Painter's Helper" in white letters.  I got it for about 4 bucks at Walmart.
