OMFG!
Now this is something my 6yo boy will definitely go for! And the tute is great - very clear and seemingly easy.  Really love the images link you passed on too.  I'm definintely investigating this further...

Hmmm, I'm not sure of the exact brand....I just use the little bottles of craft acrylic paint you find in the craft section of wal-mart....they're around 44 cents....sorry, the paint is all downstairs and I'm still holding the wee baby.

Love those shirts - especially the Godzilla one! Totally saving that link! I have a little Toby-zilla at home and he's about to grow out of the Godzilla shirt that he has already. lol

Great! I was looking at the Acrylic paints and wondering if they'd work for the purpose but I didn't want to mess up a perfectly good shirt if it didn't work.

I got tons of acrylic paint and acetates (overhead plastic paper, not the vinyl stuff you were talking about, but uses the same old basic method).

Off I go to stencil away!

So, anyways (again) I then show my boys and listen to them rave about how cool it is (that is the best part!  Hmmmm, I don't look forward to the day when I'm no longer so awesome in their eyes!!)
sigh...  I am dreading this day as well.

Thanks so much for the tute.   I can't make tshirts - since he wears a uniform - but I will try this method for some window treatments, sham, and duvet for my 6 yr old boy's room.  I am tired of all the generic Spiderman bedding he has - so I think I can come up with something unique.
