Hello all Stencilers!

I have kind of a problem and wonder if you could help me:)
Currently I'm (trying) painting a shirt with Posca Markers&freezer paper. The markers are really awesome,however when I'm trying to piant inside the stencil I get all these loose threads (rippling/crackling textile?) which makes it quite hard to paint and for the paint to cover well. The threads start sticking to the tip etc.

Does anyone have any advice on how to prevent this? (since I'm not really good with a brush for detailed stuff and I don't have any textile paints.)

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

What kind of fabric are you using?  I usually use cotton, cotton mixes, or other smooth woven fabrics and have not had a problem with loose threads over intact fabric. 

Also, if you have textile paints, you can use sponges for dabbing the paint on, instead of brushes - better actually, to prevent seeping under the stencils.

If anyone is swapping with me & happens to see any of the Pickup Trucks Forever stamps on their mail - please pop them in the package for me - my hubby would love them!  Huge pre-emptive thanks

Thanx! The problem's solved by not starting rightaway with my markers,but make a white base layer first.Smiley
