I've been rewatching Batman Beyond, plus I just bought some plain undies, so I was inspired to stencil some of them, since my previous Batman panties are my absolute favourite and always put me in a better mood when I wear them.



And so, Nightwing and Batman Beyond-style undies were created \o/



I used acrylic paints, since those worked really well the last time - they get a little faded and grungy when washed a few times, and I love the effect. The Nightwing ones went without a hitch and were finished in twenty minutes flat, the other ones were a bit of a problem because it took a million layers for the color to show properly, and that creates a bit of a problem when lifting the cardboard stencil. But they turned out all right in the end, and now I have kickass panties!

super cute!
Few questions, did you make the panties yourself too, pattern? And did you use straight acrylic paint with no fabric stabilizer and do you have a pictures of the effect the acrylic paint makes after washing?

Sorry, just saw you bought the plain undies. Nursing a baby, caring for a toddler and reading on the internet causes one to miss a few details....

That is an absolutely fantastic idea. Now I have to go home and make my own. Have you tried anything else besides the acrylic paint? I made a Robin shirt for Comic-con and it took me several hours just to get the black and yellow dark enough on a red shirt.

Kourtney - haha, it's okay, sounds like you have good reason to be a bit distracted Wink Yep, I just used the acrylic paint on the fabric, no stabiliser or anything. Here is a (not very good) picture of what it looks like after a few washings:



bethimusprime - I haven't tried anything other than the acrylic paint. I did start using fabric paint on the very first ones I did, but the color wouldn't show on black fabric, and it looked like it'd need two bottles of paint in the end, so I immediately moved on to acrylic, and with these I didn't even bother trying the fabric paint. If you have a light-colored fabric or dark paint, though, I'm pretty sure fabric paint would be better and more long-lasting.

If you mix acrylic paint with fabric medium, it helps the paint adhere to the fabric better. Also, if you use the white opaque fabric medium, it helps keep the paint from fading into the background. At least from my experience. Wink

Thanks for the tip zzdia! I'll try that out and see if it helps at all.

Sinjah - haha yeah I would probably switch to acrylic too if I had that kind of luck with fabric paint. Maybe I'm just buying the wrong type. I'll definitely need to look into it some more. Regardless, thanks for the inspiration! Cheesy

If it's already fabric paint, what I normally do is either use white as the first coat (I usually do at least 2, sometimes 3 coats of paint), and do the other coats in the color I want. I think mixing a little white fabric paint into the color might also work, but the color might get lighter
