I found a picture of this stencil, it was one that someone spraypainted onto a wall, I like it, its somewhat 'urban' rather than clean lines... I used freezer paper, then I painted it , allowed it to dry overnight, ironed it..forgot to iron on the wrong side and smeared the paint, the Wall-e is done in sharpie... immediately chucked it in the washer and fortunately the smears came out..but I like him!



photo is a crappy cellphone one..and the t-shirt is hanging on the washing line!

Great image choice! I love it, with the ink survive many washings? It seems that it would be much easier to use for fine detail then paint.

its screenprinting ink and as long as the t-shirt is washed first to remove the size on the fabric(if its new) then it works really well, the 'ink' is thick and with the freezer paper it doesn't bleed at all and as long as you have patience to cut out a detailed stencil, you can get a lot of detail.

we have loads of other things that have been painted and washed a lot with no colour fading.

the brand of 'inks' (more like the texture of very thick paint) we use is speedball
