So I want to make totally rad t-shirts for my friends and I this Halloween. I've never done it before, but I've been going through some posts in here and reading up on stenciling. I went to the store and bought all of the supplies I was missing.

My main concern is the paint. I have lots of acrylic paint and I bought Martha Stewart's Tintable Fabric Medium. I guess all you have to do is mix it with any acrylic paint and it works like magic. I also bought her Glow-In-Dark paint and finish.

Has anyone ever used this before? If so, what paint have you mixed with it? How satisfied are you with the end results?

Thanks !

I have not used Martha Stewart's Tintable Fabric Medium, but I always use textile medium when I stencil on fabric. I can't say for certain about Martha Stewart's product, but the textile medium works with any acrylic paint - you mix it to be two parts acrylic and one part textile. This does dilute the paint a bit so that lighter colors often need a second coat. When it initially dries, it will feel as if you just used plain acrylic paint. Wash it a few times and it will feel softer/like part of the shirt. In my opinion it lasts longer than fabric paint and I don't have to keep a separate set of acrylic and fabric paints. I have no idea what to tell you regarding the glow in the dark paint. I would read the instructions on the bottle.
