This shirt wasn't exactly stencilling, more image transfer...

I just printed the picture with a laser printer and transfered the pic with turpentine onto the shirt.
It makes a really nice effect, kind of vintage and its MASHINE WASHABLE, no problem at all...


one corner bled out a bit, no idea why...

that's very cool!

how exactly did you do that?  i'd be interested in making some shirts that way...but i'm sorta slow and need some more direction.

if you wouldn't mind providing some more info, i'd love it!

Ok, so here's the tutorial, it's super quick and CHEAP...(the images are not very good, but you get the idea)

Sooo... you need:
-some light material ( i think you can use just about any type of material but the image will always turn out slightly different)
-genuine turpentine (I tried substitutes, they don't work)
-duck tape or something to fix the image
-a spoon and a brush

and of course an image, b&w or colour, it needs to be printed on a laser jet printer or simply photocopied



-tape the image upside down onto your material
and brush turpentine onto the image, do this with Windows open, as the fumes are very strong
 


now start rubbing the image onto the material, do this at first only with the round side and then the edge, being careful not to tear the paper



Repeat this a couple of times, putting more turpentine on and rubbing all over the image.
Now peel off one side and check if the image has transferred strongly enough, otherwise keep going.

You can also layer a number of images
I found the image starts to fade a little bit in the washing machine, but I quite like that...

Artists use turpentine to thin their acrylic paints or to clean brushes. I got it at my arts supply store but I think you should get it at any store selling any type of paints.
It's very toxic so you gotta be really careful when using it and you won't need much...

Let me know how it goes...
