I have used acrylic paint for stenciling and it works well under the theory of if it can ruin my jeans it should stay on the shirt.  The only thing is that the color doesn't come out bright and shiny like screenprint paint does. 

I suggest a test run to see if you like the results on the fabric and to go dark with acrylics instead of like yellow or white.

I bought some stuff that you can mix into regular acrylic paint called "textile medium", which makes the paint stick properly even when you wash it. It's super! I got it at my local craft store.

In my opinion the best paint to use is fabric paint such as the Jacquard Textile line. There are several others, but I have used Jacquard and it it super easy to work with and reasonably priced. It comes in opaque, transparent and metallics. After you finish stenciling and the paint dries you heat set it and then its ready to wear. Textile paints also wash very well because they are made for fabrics.

excellent! thank so much! I definitely doesn't come out as bright and vibrant as screening ink, but it's cheaper Smiley I bought the textile medium and also as advised if you're using think cotton and it tends to kink up once dried, to use a liquid thinner (by golden brand) and that helps without having to use water, just an FYI.

thanks for the help

When I would often screenprint at a student club, we would always iron the print to make it stay in better. We also used normal acrylic paint and only water to thin the paint.
