would ti work to cut out a stencil on nornmal manila paper, tape it to a sheet of wax paper, cut out the same thing on the wax paper and iron them both on to the shirt, so the wax would hold the paper to the fabric? cause I can't find wax paper anywhere and it seems silly to buy it off the internet and pay the s&h fees.

i'm not sure...it might work, but i really don't know.  there is a way you could save yourself some time, though.  instead of going through all of those steps, they sell stencil adhesive spray.  think spraypaint, but it's sprayglue.  so you cut your stencil into the manila paper/cardstock/whatever and then spray the back with the spray adhesive.  then stick it to your fabric.  works kind of like a sticker.  contact paper works the same way and it's usually kind of plasticy, so it's waterproof and you could use it more than once if you were careful.  same thing with the thicker papers, too, i suppose.

heh I already have spray adhesive, I've been using it for the past few months.  Smiley
I just wanted to try the ghetto freezer paper method, cause freezer paper is suppsed to work best for fabric... I'll experiment and let you guys know how it goes.  Smiley

yeah I noticed that too. I think that hot wax would seal much better than glue...

Ooh I just did another spray adhesive stencil, but before painting I pressed firmly around the edges... kind of obvious, but I was too stupid to do it the first time... no bleeding at all on my second stencil!! woot! (My first one is just a blob hehe)

I appreciate all of the information here, as I just started stenciling yesterday and ended up with bleeding all over the place so I am going to try this. But I also had a hard time cutting out the stencil, I am wondering if my knife was not sharp enough....also is the freezer paper easy to cut?

Are freezer paper and baking paper the same thing?
Because ive never heard of freezer paper until i started thinking bout stenciling, but as far as i remember, baking paper is only waxyon one side...i might be wrong though...but is that all freezer paper is, like wax paper but only one side?

ack, does that even make sense? its too late to be typing *yawn*

i'm not familiar with baking paper, but yes, the freezer paper is waxy on one side, thus sparing your iron from becoming a melted waxy mess.
