Okay, so I started my shirt, with freezer paper, acrylic and fabric medium. I used wrought iron from folkart for the paint. But now that I've done the first layer, it looks greenish (I'm using a yellow shirt). I want it to be black. Could I add another type of black acrylic paint to the mix, or does it have to be the same brand of acrylic and textile medium?

And, a question that I thought I knew, but just making sure.... if you use freezer paper and iron it down well, you don't necessarily need bridges, right?

it should be safe to use another kind...try a red based black...since it sounds like the one you already used was a blue based one.  Mixing them together would be ideal because purple will cancel out the yellow base from the shirt!

Oh, thank you! I never thought of that being why it was green. I've used a different black from the same brand and it looks a lot blacker now.
