So I got this cute denim purse from my grandma for my birthday and I like it but it's just too plain.  I want to try stenciling something on it but I've never stenciled before.  I've looked up tutorials and found out how to do it but none of them say what kind of paint I should use.
Should I use regular fabric paint or is acrilyc with a fabric medium better?  Huh

Thank you!

  Yeah I had the same question!  My friend learned how to stencil on this site; he's made two really awesome shirts.  When I asked him what kind of paint he used, he said just normal ol' cheap acrylic paint and then once it's dried, he turned it over and ironed it (with a piece of cardboard in-between where he'd stenciled and whatever he was ironing on)  I haven't tried it yet, but it worked for him.
  I hope this helps!

I stencil all the time and I must say that fabric paint has worked better for me. Plus, you don't have to bother with paint and medium. You can get most fabric paint for like, 99 cents at walmart too.

Shocked Really? Fabric paint?!! I have a project I'm working on, where I have to do a whole bunch of stencilling (which will be fun) and I didn't know what to get! I figured it would cost a whole lot, because I have to make about 28 of them  Sad Thanks for sharing  Grin

Or if you really wanted to go all out, and have lots of paint left over for future projects, this web site has an array of colors that you can buy in pints and quarts at a good price.  And like I said, a really good selection of colors.

what iron setting should be used to set the paint? Whatever the fabric calls for, or just the hightest cotton setting?  Huh

I never heat set my fabric paint stencils, and they don't wash out.
