HM okay well for X-Mas I want to stencil on a tie for my dad.
So I just found this plain silk tie from target

But I don't know if it would work to stencil acrylic on silk and then iron it? Can you even iron silk??

What about acrylic mixed with textile medium?

Please help~

i just did a tie myself...i used a 1-1 mix of acrylic and textile medium, like you thought, and heat set it after it dried. make sure to use a press cloth of some sort between the iron and the item just in case! Good luck!
