I wanted to try this "Simply Spray" paint I found - there's a more liquidy dye/paint and a thicker one that's designed to give a screenprinted effect.

Here's a test with the thick stencil one:

My stencil; just for this test I used cardboard.  I found it tended to warp a bit from the paint so in the future I'd use plastic.  There were smaller loose pieces that had to fit in the centre of motifs so I used basting spray to keep everything secure.

I found the paint comes out more like a stream than a spray, so you have to adjust your technique.  The instructions say to start spraying on a piece of paper towel and then move onto your stencil; I found this worked well.  It kind of looks like a horrible mess in this pic and I started to panic, but once I took off the stencil it was all good.

Result:  Looks pretty nice!  The paint is thick and shiny like silkscreen.

I also tried the same motif and fabric with the more liquidy dye-type paint, but it didn't work well on the synthetic fabric; couldn't soak in so it just beaded up.  It works much better on cottons as it bleeds a bit; it's clearly designed for tie-dye effects or soft shadowy stencilling.

Thank you so much for trying out the spray and posting the details - with pictures and tips. That is so helpful to those of us with less experience.  It certainly gives a very good result.
