I am attempting my first stencil tonight -- animal from the muppets from a pumpkin stencil site.  I cut it out of freezer paper last night and I am going to be doing the actual painting tonight.  I planned to use craft paint, but now I am wonering if I need to find some textile medium. If I use craft paint and iron it, will it be durable, or do I need to add the textile medium?   

I'll be sure to post the results when I am done.

I think you should definately use textile medium. Thats what i have used on all of mine. But you still need to heat set it.

i agree w/ bass on the textile medium...its sold right near the acrylics in any craft store.  you still need to heat press it, either iron (w/ a towel on top), or pop it in the dryer. good luck, and make sure to post pics! I <3 Animal!!

Ok, here are my first stenciling attempts.  Animal and Gene Simmons  Kiss  my favorite wild men.
Done with craft paint/medium using pumpkin stencils and freezer paper on pieces of fabric that will likely be used for purses/bags (my favorite projects)
