So what are the best products, such as paints, papers, best places 2 buy products & so on. Any and all help would be appreciated!

i found that the best paint for me is brushable fabric paint. you can usually find it at michaels for about 99 cents a bottle. and the best kind of paper that's worked for me is photo paper. it can get pretty pricey but it works very well. you could also try wax paper.

I like to use laminating sheets, like trace the stencil on and then cut out, it is so much easier to use especially when there are islands in the stencil.

Thanks 4 the help balahuniankid & vintageoceaner.

So how do the lam sheets help with the islands. What kind of piant do u use?

no, this is actual fabric paint. i've had bad experiences with acrylic paint with medium textile. your best bet is actually getting real fabric paint and leaving the acrylic as your last resort.
