I tried Neopaque on a black shirt, the red kind.  Took four coats.  Won't be buying it again.

you could always try bleach if paint isn't working out for you

I've been wondering about those Folk Art metallic paints... I bought some sparkle stuff by another brand and didn't realize until I was just about to use it that it's not meant for fabric, oh well.  Glad to hear they work good Smiley

Have any of you tried Stencil Spray?  I have a can but haven't used it yet, it claims to work on light or dark fabric including denim.  It says it doesn't need to be heat set, just to let dry for an hour-not to use fabric softener and to turn the garment inside out for washing.  Anyone?

Humm..... I use acrylic paint all the time cut with textial med. There is a shirt I did recently in the OWS17 for Tanza of a wolf. I can post pics later on. I just put a layer on let it dry a little and put another layer on. Both layers are light layers though!

I was afraid to try the acrylic with textile medium...although I did buy it also.  I'm really interested in trying this spray, but wanted some input on it first.  I tried using the search but didn't come up with anything.  The stencil I want to try is Banksy- the flower thrower, I'm doing the entire body of the guy and not blowing it up a lot.  Hence there is are some small lines in the facial area that I'm afraid if I use the acrylic/medium mix I might use too heavy of a hand for.  Any info would be appreciated.  I was going to use freezer paper as the stencil.

My suggestion would be, although still for the acrylic paint, to use a roller foam brush I have found this to be a life saver. i am also a bit heavy handed when it comes to paint.



Here is one I did recently on a black shirt!!

UGH!  I used the acrylic paint with textile medium.  I started with a fabric brush, the kind you just pounce the paint on with then switched to a roller when I didn't like the fact that I could see the pounce marks.  Long story short, the roller also left marks- they were kind of "foamy" looking.  After I finished and peeled off the freezer paper it still looked bad, you could see some of the black coming through...SO I used a paint brush and brushed more of the paint mixture on the shirt.  I'm not really happy with how this came out either.  Any suggestions?  This was my first shirt, and although it came out perfect as far as the stencil went I'm not happy with how the paint looks.



See the crappy brush strokes?
