Heads up on the acrylic paint--
All you have to do is soak a paper towel in vinegar, place over the paint, and steam iron until dry. It will set the paint PERMANENTLY. And, if the paint isn't too thick, it won't even crack.

Sorry if this is a dumb question -- but would you iron the paper towel while it's on the stencil?

thixle- Thanks for the info about acrylic paint! I've painted on a couple shirts, and wanted to do more but gave up after they chipped in the washing machine.  Thank you!

Someone on LJ pointed out that it might have been better to leave the hand out of the picture -- she said it's distracting.  I think she's right.  If I use this stencil again, I'll tape over the hand part!

The sophia stencil shirt is gorgeous as i've said before. However, I get what that person is saying about the "hand thing". I really hope you have time to make another one and can tape over the hand, and post a pic. It's such a beautiful job, but I'd love to see it without the hand. (I just don't know how well the "hand" part of the stencil really functions or if it is actually needed.) Otherwise, the sophia stencil is a thing of beauty indeed.  Wink

Actually, I like it with the hand.  It might look weird without since she would be leaning tothe left.  But then again, you could always move it so that it wouldn't look like that.  Just my 2 cents

As for the acrylic paint thing, you can use textile medium or fabric medium. You can find it with the acrylic paints, or I think in Michaels its near the modge podge. Mix half as much fabric medium as you do paint and you are set.  I know Decoart makes some in a small bottle with a neon green plastic strip on the cap (for easy finding amoung the million bottles on the shelf). It's sold at walmart for around a buck.

Oh...and the heat set directions on the bottle aren't required.

Thanks for the great tutorial.  I will have to save it so I can try it later, I have always wanted to do stenciling.
