Hi everybody!

I've been mening to make some t-shirts using stenciling-technique, but I've never been doing this before (even though I've tried most other techniques to alter and make thhings) and I'm a bit confused.
I found thhis really great tuitorial, but I can't find what kind of paint to use...
I've boughht some latexpaint, hoping to make something really cool, but it turns out it's for bodypainting only...or is it?

Please help!

Screen printing ink, acryllic with textile medium, or fabric paint. I use fabric paint, its cheap.

Nah. But judging by what I know, the only things that will work are the ones I listed above. They are all fairly cheap.

I agree with gutter glitter, fabric paint I have been useing is called So Soft by deco art. I can only find it at Jo ann's but it is on sale most of the time like .79 a 1 oz. bottle (goes pretty far)


 I'm going to post pictures of my rag quiltsometime tomorrow(LOL) I made that has stencils of Elvis on it, and that flannel just soaks up that paint, But I still only used 3 bottles for a 6'X5' qult.

Thanks. The only problem there is the space between me (in Gothenburg, Sweden) and the nearest Jo ann's Smiley
I'll figure it out though. There has to be fabricpaint here to...

I have found that screen printing ink cracks.  But perhaps i just don't set it correctly?  I like to use acrylic mixed with fabric medium.
