Yet another question...how did you get the colored paint from the spiderman images to take so well on the dark fabric?
I'm currently doing a black fabric shirt for a Christmas present,at least I'm trying to,I've mixed some blue acrylic with a textile medium but now it's dry after 2layers there's no blue showing up...still looks like black:(

What to do now?....paint it over with a layer of only blue acrylic no textile medium (will it mix with the previous textile medium layers,once it's ironed?cause I don't want it to disappear once it get's washed)
Or...paint it over with a white layer (with or without textile medium?) let it dry, and then again with blue.
The fabrics already kinda stiff from the previous 2layers.

Or could it perhaps be that I used to0 much textile medium?...that the blue pigments got too watered down?though it says on the bottle to mix it 1:1.

Anybody any ideas?

Personally, I've never used acrylics with the textile medium.  I've only used fabric paint and it seems to cover really well.  Perhaps the blue you are using is too dark and so its not as distinguishable from the black.  The blue that I used was pretty bright.  I would say that you might be using too much textile medium, because generally acrylic paints do a good job covering dark colors pretty well, too.  Or you could try lightening up the color that you are using.

Maybe you should try the fabric paint. I only have like 5 or 6 colors, and they aren't expensive.  I just mix colors if I want something different.

Thanx 4 the tips!
I used a bright oceanblue color. Atm I don't have the resources to buy textile paint,so I think I'm gonna try again with the blue but this time I'm gonna use just a few drops of textile medium and not mix it 1:1 like suggested at the bottle.

Wow, great job.  That is the neatest stenciling I have ever seen.  So well done.  Great job.
