today i was fooling around with spray paint, stencils, and a shirt.
i really like what i had done, so i want to try doing it and selling the products, what i need to know is what kind of paint should i be using? like which has the best colours after a few washes, which washes best (without colouring everything else!) and what drys in a reasonable ammount of time. anything will help! thanks  Grin

I've always used acrylic paint mixed 50/50 with textile medium. You can stencil with it by using a foam brush and pouncing it on. Most of the fabric I've painted still looks great, and after you heat set it with a dry iron it can be washed inside out with no problem. You can also always buy silkscreen ink and experiment with that.

All you have to do is put it on a high setting like cotton, put a piece of scrap cloth (preferably a cotton or something, not a towel or anything fuzzy) over the paint and press it by holding the iron firmly on each spot for about 30 seconds. Make sure you cover the whole design and press it good - then it's good to go!
