Two questions:

1) are people really running freezer paper through their printers?  Doesn't the wax melt off and gum up the printer?

2) I assume fabric paint would work okay for this.... since we're stenciling on, you know, fabric.  Right?

1. That's why you're only supposed to do it in inkjet printers, because they don't have to heat the paper to set the ink, unlike a LaserJet printer which has to be heat set, which would melt the wax and gum up the printer. Smiley

2. The cool thing about the textile medium is that you then have all the colors of the acrylic paints available to you. And I've also heard that it makes the paint softer, but I don't have that much experience, so I can't say. Tongue

Sounds like it's worth a try - I've never done that wax paper technique, but could be a fun project to get one of the cartoons on a t-shirt Tongue

Just use your iron on its highest setting, no steam, and press it for a couple minutes. I always move the iron around so that I won't burn the shirt.
