Thinking of making a stencil out of this, on a black tshirt. (I just really dislike white shirts, and putting it on a color would be just plain ol' stupid looking.  How would i get decent white on black coverage?
this doesn't seem overly complicated, I'm just sowrryed about streaky gray and black, because that would be sad looking.
(Planning on using acrylic+textile meduim)

Should be fine if you do 2 or more coats (once each coat dries). As long as the Acrylic paint is good quality and has good pigments. I have some of that Textile medium stuff, but I've been too lazy to buy a plain t-shirt to try it out, so tell me how you go! Smiley

I think you may be better off buying a textile pigment that is meant for covering black. Then one coat will be fine. i find when you do two coats with heavy pigmented ink when it comes time to wash the second coat may not have been able to bin d the fabric- since it sits on top of the first and then it washes out in spots. Use permaset SUPERCOVER white fabric ink and you won't be disappointed.
happy printing,
michelle

Hi there! Well.. I was just browsing through and saw your post. Here is something I recently discovered on craftster and am going to try later today. Basicly... make a copy on a xerox machine of the image (do NOT use an inkjet printer) , get a product with a high Xylene content.. laquer thinner.. (i have goof off) , others use wintergreen oil..you can see in the origonal post all the things you can use... put the image face down (make sure to flip the image on the copy machine so the letters will come out right on the shirt), spread out some xylene on the back and rub it onto the shirt with the back of a spoon! That's it! Here is the org. link.

this is not a raid. nice try though.

That xerox trick sounds amazing, I would've never even thought of that before. Sounds really handy.
