If you're using acrylic paint for silkscreening or stencilling or whatever on fabric, it needs to be heat set before it's washed.  You can do this by putting the clothing or whatever, with the DRY acrylic paint on it, in the dryer on a medium or high heat setting for a full cycle.  OR you can iron the dry paint (with newpaper or fabric between the paint (which is plastic-ey when it dries) and the iron.  You always want to do this before you wash an item.

Here is my first stencil.



I love my Bettie Page t-shirt!
This is the stencil that I made



There are a lot more in my album, but I still have to try them! Cheesy
You can use them, if you want! I'd love to know that someone else in the world is wearing my same tshirt! Smiley
Thanks for the tutorial

You have inspired so many! One more to add to that list. After reading your how-to post, I just had to do it myself. It was so easy!  The hardest part was finding the right image (I decided on Laura Palmer from Twin Peaks).
(Sorry my image is so big. Still figuring out the posting thing.)

I like silkscreening, but the cost of supplies have always scared me off. Anyone can afford a couple of tubes of acrylic paint (99 cents each or less!). Here's my shirt. Bummer thing is that I have to wait 7 days to wear it according to the directions on the paint. Man!

I love Twin Peaks -- Laura Palmer is a really great stencil idea.  I'd love to have a Special Agent Dale Cooper stencilled shirt!

Nice job, Sammeh. The Conor Oberst part looks really good! Did you get the stencil off of ohmystars or did you make it yourself?

I love this whole idea, Especially the search for pictures and playing with them on adobe. Everyone seems to have perfected this technique so I don't have much to add besides the fact that you can not only stencil t-shirts but also make greeting cards(I sent an engagement anouncement to my roommate with my johnny depp stencil and the date of our wedding in hawaii....   Kiss)     A christina ricci stencil would be excellent.  not Monster Ricci but maybe Buffalo 66 Ricci.

Thanks for the rad suggestions.  I promptly found a copy of photoshop and the "stamp" filter is my personal god.  I've made a bagillion of stencils.  Here is one that I spray painted on a vinyl jordy bag.  Its Bjork, even though it looks like she has an amish beard.

Inspired by y'all, I made my first stencils this weekend. Has some bleedage issues so I'm not supper pleased with them.  I used acrylic with a fabric medium. Has anyone used a fabric paint? I saw them at AC Moore by the the screen printing matirials and I was wondering if they might work better. I like the spray paint idea too. Maybe the stencil wasn't secured well either. Hoy, so many possible problems/fixes. Good thing the shirts only cost two-fiddy.

I've used acrylic and didn't like the results. I bought those very paints you're talking about at AC Moore and they're the best. I'm having less bleeding and cracking issues.

Here's my shirt. The slogan is because the lead singer of one of my favorite bands has been calling some of his fans unpleasant people on his journal, so I decided to make a few t-shirts to wear at concerts. I've had a few fans request a shirt and sent me a few bucks to cover expenses.
